Looks and sounds nice. :thumbright:

You should definitely do a thread about the Pixie when you get it, maybe some assembly photos as you build it. I've been curious about it, and some of the other Elby kits, for a while now, but I'm not sure my own DIY skills are up to that kind of task yet.

If I was you I would just jump right in. Maybe build something smaller and cheaper first like the WSG from Ray Wilson. Is not much as along the lines for a synth but its easy. I thing I like about a few of the Elby synths is that you can build them in sections, test that section to be sure it works and then move on.

I say go for it :D

Nice work on the Soundlab there. I'm building an ASM-2 at the moment (or rather, it's a long intermittent project in between everything else) - Elby are very thorough with their documentation, though that for the ASM took a fair bit of organising to make it practical for the build.

Wait till you start designing your own circuits. Then it gets fun... :wink:

I admire that. I've been looking at the Soundlab for awhile now and I unfortunately lack the inclination to actually get into what is such a huge project.

You're looks and sounds great!

Very nice! This reminds that I need to finish my Oakley TM3030 ASAP. Inspiring.

Sounds really nice when you play the two clips at the same time. :wink:
