Latest Ambika build completion. White case by Adrian / Van Daal Electronics. Official designer of the Shruthi metal cases. The volume knob has been moved to the rear of the case (with a posh Cosmo knob). Inside are 4 4P's, 1 SMR & 1 SVF Voicecards. Also has a nice bezel for the LCD Display. Really hate to see this one go. The metal cases look absolutely stunning!

Just acquired a Make Noise System 1 last week. I have had a couple Eurorack modules for a bit, but nothing useful. I decided to get the full system because I had been looking at getting a Music Easel, but was having a hard time spending that much on something. While this is not a Music Easel, it is fairly close to it with a lot more patching options. Very happy with it. The other plus is it is in it's own carrying case, so I can easily bring it with me when I travel out of town for work, as the below video is just that.

The main globals PCB arrived and has been populated. Just missing 1 capacitor. So far the Portamento and gate led drivers have been tested.
Next PCB, which should arrive this week is for the 2 MIDImplants (although I probably could have used only one. It pays to read the manual fully first, kids). It's also got a 5v power supply for the MIDI thru.
Other than that, I should have a working prototype within the next month or 2. The case is going to take a while as I probably won't be able to bend the metal or paint until the weather warms up. Oh wells.
