Actually. No. I shipped IC orders every Thursday. They were fast to "pull and pack", I doubled my investment and saved 1000s of synths from being junked.

Did the business model for selling these chips consist of taking orders (and sometimes money up front) and not delivering for years while making endless promises, or was it run different than motm?

Just wondering.
