Unless there is a big demand for the triggers, I will just share the BOM and where to get them done. I have a place that will cut an 8" shell in half and drill all the holes for you and stocks all the parts. I'll go more into that later..

I was going to just go with the normal gray for the metal case but if ppl want white also, thats doable. For ppl that pre ordered: I'll have boards available after the show if they want to have those early. The cases are the long lead time bit, everything else is either here or on the way.

This is exciting! I’ve owned other clones in the past and finally settled on your eurorack SY0.5 modules, but I just picked up playing the drums so I’d love to add this to my kit!!

PCB Kits are now in stock in the shop. I've decided to break up the kits into 3 parts to simplify things logistically.

Metal Cases are delayed several more weeks, will send update when I have a firm shipping date

Documentation and build instructions are started on the website, will populate that in the coming weeks. BOM is finalized so people can get started if they want. Please contact me with any question concerning the BOM or general build stuff. CV Karl will offer the rare parts kits (the hard to find stuff) and Synthcube is currently working on the general parts kits
