Also I do not have to spend money on women, becouse the women themself buy gifts to me instead and try to get my attention. Women are not so important to spend money on them, or in other words -- they have no value in a monetary way.
But so far so good. I think the speech freedom is a Good Thing. Quite much moderated forum will be turned to snakenest if the admins are corrupted... or will do nothing at all (All what evil needs in order to prosper is just this --- good people to do nothing. I believe that when just saying out loud everything out then it solves the problem itself, and does not escalate.
I am really bad with people myself and being misunderstood easily and I misunderstood easy way (in exception if the another is with Asperger syndrome, then interesting is that I understand very well).
... I hope everyone is here welcome who has 10+ keyboards or synth modules and have been with G.A.S.
Still.... just idea... here is a place where are quite many electronic skilled people.
People have developed opensoftware and why not also make together the synth schematics. The thing is that it does not need so much tools than actually brainpower to make ready schematics, PCB layout etc. We do not need to go back lead details, but 0806 and 0603 size SMD details would be good enough (reflow owen), as these PCBs really are _faster_ to build together than its lead counterparts. Still how many have vision or tools to handle such details when we are already prototyping and making research?
Its too early to talk about mass production, but I think that it is good enough if just step by step the first long-term milestone is that we have ready the schematics, layouts and descriptions in order that everyone who wants to build can actually build his polysynth ready. Compared to $2500 price there is enough room for a soldering iron, $400 oscilloscope and some details, and still more than 1000USD will be left over, but everyone gets sharp soldering skills.
I am in Sweden. There are also some in U.S., one who makes multibank cards I noticed is in Germany ... it makes me to think that in every gearhead neighbourhood there is atleast one tech with PCB making lab. But instead of making all this work 10 times over individually we can make it faster if just dividing it.
OK, now I got thread derailed again... but I really get idea that there could be idea to make the Juno replicas for CHEAP and SIMPLE way, and which can be made ready in a affordable time (couple weeks if every evening 1..2 hours to make it for someone even with a novice-intermediate skill?) -- once the schematics are ready so that everyone can do it! Then everyone will do it and this concept and clones will spread itself like a software which is copied.
Xoxbox is quite a TB303 alike clone, and there is a schematic about it AND manual how to build it. I have built together 2 of these, and readed through that user guide I see no reason why other would not be capable of making 6..12 voice polysynth modules. Most software suck becouse they do not do proper offline-read ready manual and they point to wwwwwwwww adress instead where these help instructions are forever-beta.
Willem programmer clones is the whole e-bay full! and being cheaper and cheaper. The same can be also with polysynth modules, and then we have everyone these affordable synthesizers which are in cult status right now... TB303 clone we have already at the market as XOXBOX... but about holy grail Juno-106... just
no-one has done it before I guess? There are instead 1-2 dudes who make a synth as his life work and put a price sticker on it and starve behind it and goes into grave with that creative result... instead to share it, to let it multiply and prosper.
At 2006 I got idea to make my own 24-voice multitimbral VCO based synth, but I gave up that project (I found a one modular synth site where all was based on lead details and I thought to miniaturize it with SMD details, also back then I could not figure out how to make a firmware for controlling it, neither I had any proper schematic CAD tools back then for such a complicated work). when I thought that it takes more than 3..4 months to make it together, while ROland MKS-80+MPG80 rack cost was back then 1500USD (and these were forever re-listed prices on e-bay when I bought it).
But... now it could be some simpler methods to make 6 voice polysynth I think... at first in 19" 2U format and in a 2-sided PCB with 0806 SMD components, as it saves enorm amount time.
What do other fellows think about it?
Or how many get now wet dreams about it? --- after some years having 8..12 voice VCO synths which are custom, in a rack format and better advanced clones than Roland MKS80 was actually. And these boards will be manufactured from one point on in e-bay by these chinese salespersons and they try to be cheaper than others, instead to compete with others... and... at the end we get all work from them and complete synths building from blocks -- power supply, cpu-assigner-board, voice boards, There is certainly a thought if it is more affordable than PAiA.
