Production is starting
The new boards are here!
It took over a month for these beauties to arrive (perhaps holidays are to blame and customs involvement doesn't speed things up either :)
A few improvements were added since previous update:
- standard connector for Li-Po cell
- two expansion headers (2x4 pin each) for SWD programming/debugging signals, I2C, 4x CV input, 3x GPIO/ADC/USART pins and power lines
- third sliding switch, wired to top left 3.5mm jack connector, select between headphones and line out signal (the other connector is always for headphones)
- buttons replaced with slightly larger and a lot quieter type (less clicky but still good tactile feedback)
I'm starting assembling two of them, to verify if all works; how sensitive those new mics really are, whether the voltage stabilizers give enough power for all LEDs to shine brightly, and most importantly - how clear and interference-free is the sound.
If all goes well, pre-orders for this model will start in late summer.
Mounting more Classic Gechos
New units of the "classic" version (same as were delivered for Kickstarter) are already being made. It took a few months - since April - to get the missing bits and pieces that halted the production. Everything finally arrived last week and we got to work. Complete units and DIY kits as displayed in the shop will be available soon.
