Laurentide Synthworks – maker of Eurorack DIY modules, the Polysynth Formerly Known As Ambika and the Monosynth Formerly Known As Shruthi – has announced that it is closing.
Here’s what owner Adam Armstrong has to say about it:
I have been thinking on this for quite some time and have finally come to the decision to hang up Laurentide SynthWorks.
The batch of Shruthi/Ambika that was just shipped to Modular Addict is the last batch that I will be doing. I will be putting together one more run of VG2 kits together that will also be available at Modular Addict, after that I will be discontinuing it as well as the PRM2.
I also have an unreleased module with full kits already assembled. Those will be for sale at Knobcon in September.
I did not come to decision easily and it took me about 6 months to finally say I’m done. It wasn’t easy to come to terms with, but the reality of it is that it was getting way to difficult juggling family and a demanding day job. Plus, the passion was fading and it was feeling more like a regular job, which is not at all why I started it in the 1st place.
I want to thank everyone for being supportive and totally awesome. I have met a lot of great people over the years and made a ton of new friends. I’ll still remain active in the scene, just no longer as a manufacturer.
Thanks again and I hope to see you at Knobcon one last time.
