Thank you for your inquiry! :)  The work has been almost finished, we’re waiting on the delivery of the proto PCB from the factory after which we’re doing the final testing, photos and sound samples. Then we’ll be ready to start selling the kits.  :D
As soon as we have the news we’ll post it here. Stay tuned!  ;)

I'm very interested.
vca? rms or more peak-style?
Any specific inspirations and design-goals?
For tasks/instruments?

Hello everyone!
Having some great news, the first prototype was born and fully working. The PCB has been checked for mistakes, all pots and knobs are working correctly, and sounding great :-)
Samples coming soon!

Hi G-sun,
This compressor are more peak style, it was a inspiration from SSL 4000 bus compressor.
I guess it would be useful for tracking on vox and instruments
