Interesting indeed. Happy to see boutique audio flourishing these days (maybe not in terms of profitability, but at least in terms of choices for musicians).

They posted that the DIY kit is not for the beginner. Not a chance for a hack like me.
I'll bet jhulk could whip one of these suckers together in no time though.

Looks like it takes up about 4U. Understand its a DIY but compared to the Solaris 1U I'd go for the latter if in the market for another Rack synth.
