New Tube Based Monosynth Project from Metasonix

"This is the THIRD major revision of this monosynth project. So many problems with previous PCB versions that we went with some RK modules instead, to save some pain. Two completely different filters. This will be a very goddamn complicated device and so it will not be cheapie-poo. Three thyratron vcos, ten PC boards, and 15 tubes equals a certain level of assured misery. The almost 'done' prototype is STILL not 100%. Two+ years of my life blown away so people can have a 'flagship product' to talk about. Even if they don't buy one---honestly I will be amazed if we sell five of them in this deeply saturated market.

And it is still a few months until the front panel is ready, and I still need to write an owners manual. At least it won't sound like a goddamn Moog, ha ha ha. And it will be cheaper than a bloody Knifonium."
