quite a lot of the support the forum has given has been completely community based, mome rath and myself aren't anything to do with adafruit either.

no problem, i don't need anyone to go out of their way to be nice, my expectations are pretty accurate when it comes to messages in forums :) that being said, i won't let anyone go out of their way to be mean either in these forums. consider it a friendly warning, keep it positive here folks :) we've worked really hard to do the best we could for over 1,000 kits and now the project will live on, be better supported and have a better parts supply. the project is open source, the forums are open here - the documentation is still up and always will be - and it's still amazing. one of the best projects ever for open source hardware and for synths. we're really lucky to have found willzyx.

Willy, will you be stocking any of the other non-rare (er, uh, "common") x0x parts (LEDs, switches, etc.) that were so fleetingly available in the adafruit shop?

I do plan on having a few "common" parts in the store. The gray-hill encoders come to mind, basically the parts that are not that easy to find outside of the US. Right now my first priority is to get kits built up and update BOMs, documentation ect.....

does this mean you're adding "full" kits to your inventory soon?

Its exciting to see that the first shipments are arriving. If you guys need anything just let me know.

I am working around the clock to get the first 100 complete kits ready. Its looking like the first 50 will be ready in another week. :D

Edit: Forgot to mention that they will be $350 a kit.
