I can't resist this one!
1. If replacement is for another custom-made synth:
(Cost of Parts used
+ Cost of Parts you forgot you bought
+ Cost of Parts you bought but didn't need
+ Cost of Parts you wanted but couldn't find
+ Cost of Parts you blew up while breadboarding)
+ ((Number of PC Boards designed x Max number of hours spent designing)
+ (Number of Panels designed x Max number of hours spent designing)
+ (Number of Modules built x Max number of hours spent building)
+ (Number of Emails read or responded to on Synth-DIY x 2 minutes)
+ (Number of Modules built x hours of sleep lost debugging modules)
+ (Number of wires on your module backplane x 10 hours each)
+ (Number of trimmers x 2 hours spend making adjustments)
x 2.5 cause you never get it right!)
x Hourly rate of average Electronic Technician
2. Cost of an equivalent used Moog, Arp or Roland System or $10K, which
ever is higher
3. Cost of your divorce lawyer and settlement agreement!
