Thanks everybody for your support. This has been an exciting time for me and I'm really looking forward to the next phase of the project. You will be receiving your Rockit synth in the next couple months and I can't wait to see the response and see what you do with it. Just a reminder, If you're outside the U.S., please add $10 for international shipping.
As you might know, Kickstarter funding becomes available to me about 14 days after the end of the project, but I'm going to try to get things going before I receive the funding. The PCB and the BOM are finished, so I'll be ordering the production boards this week along with the components for the kits and finished units. The PCBs will take about 4 weeks to arrive, during which time I'll be putting together the kits. Hopefully, I'll have a lot of them put together by the time the boards arrive and be able to ship kits shortly thereafter. The software is fully functional; all features have been programmed. I'm going to be tweaking here or there but it's good enough at this point to be releasable.
Interest in a case has been strong. I've pretty much decided not to do the Envision Plastics case because it reminds me too much of my crappy Lenovo Thinkpad at work. I'm leaning toward the acrylic route. I know it's derivative but there's a reason everyone has decided to do it. I don't have the mechanical chops to make something really nifty, but I have had some people express interest in helping me out on that end and I'm probably going to take them up on it. Once I've got the case figured out, I'll send out a note and make them available on my site.
So, I'll keep sending updates here and on my blog about my progress toward shipping. Thanks again for your support!
