Richie, 

Sorry if you already mentioned this, but...   Have you allowed for automation of the sound parameters?  Are the sounds altered in menus via the LCD?  Are you able to store different kits?

I come from a design for manufacture background so things like approvals certification, supplier negotiations, stocking, documentation and shipping don't scare me as much as just taking up a whole load of time.  I'm just one man doing this.

However, I realise that the expectations of a customer paying for a product are higher than the expectations of someone building a DIY audio kit, so it needs to be right.  I also believe the sound is much closer than any other TR-808 clone, without resorting to samples, unlike some of the already established names offerring "Virtual Analogue" 808 and 909 VSTs!
