  1. DIY Kit only will surely limit the sales of this one, seems like a great module, hopefully the will also do a fully built one for not too much more…

  2. The dysphonia sold out in a day. I bought one. On the fence about this one. Can’t really understand how it functions and sounds.

    1. It’s a basic 2 oscillator analog synth with square and triangle oscillators. It has two envelope controls (each allowing control of decay only – you can’t tweak attack, sustain or release). It has a 32 step sequencer that looks incredibly fiddly to use (select pitch, velocity and accent of each note with sliders). Good value for 200 EUR, although the through-hole kit is a bit unnecessary in 2022. They should have installed surface mount components except for the jacks and sliders, rather than asking you to solder dozens of resistors like it’s 1988.

      1. Agreed. The dysphonia didnt come with resistors, they were already soldered. This one is weird. Cost less though so maybe thats the rub. I sold my dysphonia but it sounded really good and packed a lot of value but was too large for my case and I like to keep things all together. Considering building a large case so I can rack my modules and the Moog semi modular trio. Its weird having it off to the side. Anyways, sounds like this might be worth it as well, even for just the DIY fun.

  3. Cancelled my Soma Rumble of Ancient Times and bought this today!
    Soma was taking way too long to deliver something they that was supposed to be chip-shortage-proof.

  4. I’m waiting for a mk2 Abyss, they teased it last year. Should have released that before yet another diy-box. There are enough boxes like this one here.

    1. i chatted to Dreadbox at Superbooth this weekend. for now, the Abyss Mk2 is not happening:-( they’re finding it impossible to secure the supply of microprocessors that it needs…. this sad modern world!
