Keeping an eye on the forum is the best way to stay up to date. He usually gives the forumites a heads-up first.

I've contacted Oliver by email in the past and got a reply. However, if you have any questions it might be better to post them in the forum. He is very active there, and there are other people that can answer your questions there too.

As far as the next batch of kits, I don't remember there being any specific date set yet. Oliver is busy working on a big firmware update, and the next batch of kits will have a lot more patch memory and a whole new bank of patches. This requires some additional testing and debugging, so it has delayed things a bit. Though, I'm sure it won't be long, since the firmware update is in the final stages now. You can follow all of this on the forum if you dig through the posts.

Just want to +1 on the Shruthi love... finally got mine working after an easy self-induced problem (swapped resisitors, doh!) - I can't believe I didn't screw it up more royally! - and love the sound immediately. Dirty and digital through and through, in the best way possible. What I imagine a monophonic MWI would sound like, but with more of an XT-bite.

I think DSI needs to take a page from Mutable's book - if the MEK had had this many wavetable options tweaks, I probably would have kept it (though I can't ignore the fantastic delay/feedback options on that synth). Oh, and the filter on this sounds better too!

A polyphonic one of these would sound fantastic.

Only real gripe (like others) is the case - I can't get the front panel to sit without inhibiting knob/button movement. Anyone found a workaround?
Do you even post on vse bro?
