I put the HAWK board together for customers that ask for it. I usually charge $25 bucks for that. But, you still have to do some work on the Poly-800 mainboard itself. So there just is no such thing as "slot right in".

And the AtomaHawk requires quite a few patched in jumper wires. So that kit is definitely a true "mod" because there is quite a bit of work required on the Poly-800 "innards".

Hi mike
            can i ask just how complicated it is to install the kits or if you ever intend on selling a ready made kit that just slots in ?

Hi Fran,

I hope you don't mind meputting your review onto the new HAWK website which is coming soon. Anyone else that wants to provide a little review, please go right ahead.

Also, anyone that has posted HAWK music on the web or other reviews etc. If you don't mind, please share the links with us and let me know if you mind if I link to them.

The HAWK and AtomaHawk has really kept selling steadily over the years and I think it's time it got a decent website instead of that crap I have up there now.

I still love my Hawk-800 MkII!!! I'm able to make sounds with this synth that none of my other gear can match. Using a simple Novation Remote LE-25 controller makes it even more enticing because of the velocity response and other realtime tweaks. Even though I have the Moog Slayer pots, 12/24db filter switches, digital delay time pot, and FM-800 pot I barely have to touch the Hawk once it is set properly. The Remote can access enough functions to keep me jamming for hours. This kit has been very well thought out and I would not give it up for love or money.
