Once again, a change in direction in the synthesizer. duh
Looks like it will not be made as a paper face panel, as Dmitri has expressed that he will have to revise the quote to reflect the extend of customization plus it will take quite a while so I opted to just go to another direction.
I am currently looking at having the panels done locally, unfortunately the initial quote that came in was quite high. So I may need to look further while revising the panel artwork at the same time. I am still looking at building up at least two panels of Voice and sequencer, but I will opt to ipass the panels to Elby design (http://www.elby-designs.com) to help me with the manufacturing.
Another option that I would love to explore is the BugBrand Modular.
Highly elusive as the modules are not freely available, only to the prior system users that Tom has been helping build on a personal level. I am hoping to snag a few loose modules from the BST section at Muffwiggler to get me started.
On a positive note, not all are missed shots and frustration as I was able to build two simple contact microphone with a big help from my friend Dougall. Thanks Man.
