In case someone forfeits their spot you can of course take theirs as all regular spots have been booked (LeitOn where the PCBs are gonna be produced has some odd scaling in their pricing/run sizes) ... otherwise you'll have to wait for the regular run sometime later in 2021. Your credit for up to 3 cards of course remains.
For the regular run I would have contacted you either way - I think I have your E-Mail adress (if not I know what other Forum to contact you) - you have by no means been forgotten.

Bit delayed, but Prototypes have been ordered and should arrive here on the 18th or 19th.

I see my update policy here sucks 😉 Prototypes are delayed by a bit, but left the manufacturing process today and should hopefully arrive either saturday or monday.
I will PM everyone who ordered cards individually with their tracking numbers once their cards are being shipped. That should be the case by the end of next week at worst.

Picked up the PCBs yesterday: https://i.imgur.com/FO95ssp.jpg
I'll update the BOM and placement map this weekend and send them off within the next week.

I really haven't been active, but this is exciting news!

I'll go back and read the updates on what is happening. I know you were sending off a small batch for testing. Not sure where everything is right now. I'll go educate myself.

Great work!

That PCB looks awesome. Congratulations, shock__! My GUSAr looks comparatively crappy! 😀

Final revision ... which is basically the same as the RC1 with minor changes to the silkscreen (no more "Release Candidate" label).

No. See first post.
I'll notify people here on future runs, to which you can sign up then. If I don't hear from you within a reasonable timeframe (let's assume 2 months) you will be messaged for a 3rd and final run.
This all will take place some time this year.

Shipping will be slightly delayed ... while the cards/chips have been sorted and the shipment boxes prepared I only today found some suitable padding material. As I have appointments tomorrow and on monday the first cards will likely be shipped on Tuesday.

I thought I was automatically included as being one of the firsts contributors ? As for the first two prototypes, I didn't have to tell you. I must have missed something. All good then. Count me in for next batch.

Prototypes always were on demand after previously asking who's interested to participate.

Very keen on this one. Orpheus was my last purchase which has paired well with the Roland SCB-55 (stand offs have been added to improve stability since that photo was taken) and the Gravis will be my last sound card purchase, rounding out my collection finally. Hopefully not too long before those who were late to the party can jump on board.

thanks for the update shock__ !
I remember there was a mouser basket with parts, is it still valid?
