Title: Did I bag the last PCB?
Post by: jojjelito on October 16, 2012, 12:47:25 PM
New here!

There's been much talking about the Preen over at Mutable so I figured I have to add this to my ever expanding list of DIY gear I have. So, yesterday evening after some more Preen discussions I decided to get in on it and placed an order. I had to check the store today and everything was sold out!  :o

I'm getting stoked and started figuring what to do about getting the case made. Going to pimp her out with a green OLED and some Albs "Waldorf" knobs.

Anyone knows if someone in Europe has the Maple mini in stock, or do I have to get it from China? There's no stress anyway, just checking.

Hello,

I sold the last kit yesterday and several PCBs have been sold during the night.
The PreenFM shop is totally empty.

I didn't realize the maple mini was so hard to find.
3 in sock on seed studio   :o

And out of stock on sparkfun ?

I must have one maple mini left.... have to check to be 100% sure.
PM me if you're interested. I can sell it for 35E shipping included.

For the case, it's very easy to have it make by formulor.de

OK, thanks!

I was sketching how to use a smaller case opening for an OLED, maybe I should ask Altitude if he'd like to share his case, or if I'll modify the case I downloaded yesterday evening  :P

Going to make it at Formulor in some weird color, maybe Radiant or some kind of mirror finish.  ;D Hmm, seems they only offer silver mirror at Formulor, must take a peek later. Radiant is available...

Better hope that they'll make new maple mini batches, if Sparkfun sells those I guess there's a big market for them.

Cool that you're all sold out! Hope it made you some money for further development or new products  8)

Hehe, bagged the next to last Maple mini in store at Seed studios. There's only one left there as I write this. They also seem sold out at Sparkfun at the moment. Feels like I got in just in the nick of time  ;D

my ever expanding list of DIY gear I have.

Hi, I'm new here to. Can you please tell me what other kits you have.
Although this is my 2nd diy synth (just ordered it), I'm really enjoying building and playing them.
I have only bought full kits (preen and shruthi) as I'm not sure about sourcing parts myself.

Jeremy.

Me too!  How about an FM board for the Mutable Ambika, or even the Shruthi?

it's nearly built ( time would be nice ). I hope to be finished next week, trying to source a blue OLED.
I am spending much thought on case design/production as I have a "Worst Case Scenario", Shruthi, Anushri, GorF, Yellow Magic Shruthi and PreenFM all looking for cases, something in aluminium and wood I think.

Also I have a Klee to build. (but i know what case that is going into).
I will be building another PreenFM as well.
cheers and regards

Sounds like you're building a family rather than a studio.

@randy
It keeps me away from putting more money into my modular ... Also with the "small stuff" I want to be able to gig using a very minimalist set, possibly no black and white notes in sight. A small skiff type modular is on the cards, I am designing that at the moment. Nothing vanilla flavoured going in that, it will all be rare beast modules.
