Hello everyone!

Was pretty busy last 2 or 3 weeks. But I did not waste time in vain! 8)

Here we go!

So now compressor works as it should, sounds amazing (I like on drums a specially). Need to calibrate meter and check time constants.
Next step - fix a couple bugs on pcbs that I found during first run.

Hallelujah!

Well, now 2254 fully calibrated and works as it should!
All bugs on boards have corrected. Boards and front panel are redrawn.
I've added one more option - THRESHOLD and MAKE-UP GAIN can accept both, potentiometer for smooth adjusting or  rotary switch for stepped and fully recallable  adjusting.

I've calculated two kits:

- first kit will contain BA185, BA191, BA283 boards, board for joining BA cards, face board for switches and 24V psu board. This kit will be available for shipping by end of october.

- second kit will contain first kit plus face panel and 1U enclosure. This kit will be available for shipping by end of november.

Of course kits will be supplied with a full information for happy build, including step-by-step instructions :p

Who are interested -  contact me with personal message or with e-mail [email protected] (as GDIY personal message can overflow quickly)
I think that in nearly days I will open whitemarket thread for more open information about how to purchase kits.
