Mine never arrived :/

I think the real trick is in smart ways to control all these chips with
digital processors to provide patch recall and midi control that musicians
now expect in a poly synth. I have some ideas, but haven't had the time (or
chips) to test recently (taking care of new baby).

Haha, well I just found out about these chips and catching up on mail :-)
Been away for a while so I just saw the messages from november about this.
Could I still get samples?

I would certainly not expect any finished projects, but surely some
fantasising would be possible!

I honestly dont think people have had the time to build a lot with them.
They shipped out before the holidays. I’ve seen VCOs and VCFs built from
the datasheets. If someones building a polysynth from them, by themselves,
it might be six or nine montha from now before they share it.

What are you building from them?
