List of things competed:
- Prototype Case built
- LFO, S&H, Globals PCB, Saw2Tri, Midi2CV, Power Supply & Transformer all mounted
- Globals Panel Prototype built
- MIDIpal LCD and Encoder installed and mounted to Globals Panel
- Wire it up!
I built a quick-and-dirty power buss board, but I did order a PCB. Just waiting for that and 1 10k Pot for Voice 2 Resonance. I ended up going with the Midimplant MIDI2CV with a MIDIpal for the dispatch to achieve poly. The nice thing about the Midimplant is 1 board has 2 independent midi2cv's. Each can be assigned a MIDI channel and have their own V/Oct & Gate. Wish I had read the spec more clearly before I ordered a 2nd one. Guess one can never have too many midid2cv's.
Hopefully 1 more month and the prototype will be complete! Then, this spring I'll try my hand at bending aluminum.

Demo of a ShruthXT with the SVF (Midnight Edition) filter board. The XT really helps unlock the beast within the SVF. If you're not familiar with it, it is a dual 12db State Variable Filter, each with Low Pass, High Pass and Band Pass. They can be set up either in parallel or series, offering an amazing amount of modulation possibilities. Truly an amazing and underrated filter.

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.
