Yes, well they are still supposed to be making them today.

Just on a side note, does anyone here have an idea as to the waiting time from EMS for a new VCS3? Wondering if there is a horrific backlog or if it is still possible to get one within a reasonable waiting time.

Don't know how out of date the EMS site is but the VCS's are at more of a reasonable price than I would have expected given recent eBay goings on. :D

Seems like the last update to it was in 2002.

i contact them last year to ask for a new vcs. they where not expecting to start a batch before 6 months and the waiting was 1.5 years if i remember correctly. plus he couldn't say any final price, but kindly ask for a deposit.

damn copy writes. at this scale of production, with a partial kit, he debugged the schematics of a synth that is apparently not build for long years and a praised object.

lets play nice. those same "bitches" come from the same world that has done more for home synth building than arguably anywhere else on the net. in short, if the "DIY synth community"( if there is such a thing) can make its case as a community that first and foremost prides itself on the sharing of ideas, circuits, and developments(which it really largely is, ESPECIALLY at EM-the front lines of the whole "scene" AFAIC), and secondly(s**t, LASTLY) as a vessel of capitalism and litigious concerns, then maybe some things can be smoothed over. we'll see.

in the meantime, lets all choose our words carefully.
