MONOSYNTH FORMERLY KNOWN AS SHRUTHI
This is a resurrection of the classic and highly loved Mutable Instruments Shruthi-1. Initially I will be offering the Control PCB, preprogrammed chips and the 4PM (4 Pole Mission) filter board. Eventually I will begin putting kits together for each of the boards as well as the other discontinued filter's.
When the Shruthi line was discontinued (with the exception of the SMR-4 kit & case, which is still available from Mutable Instruments) I began discussions with Olivier (mad code scientist behind Shruthi and all things Mutable) on continuing it's legacy. Along with TubeOhm in Europe, we will be supplying Shruthi PCB's back to the DIY community under our company names respectively.
On 3/11/2015 I will begin selling the Shruthi Control PCB, pre-programmed chips, 4PM filter and custom dark grey translucent plexi-case. The PCB's are manufactured by the same company Mutable Instruments used and the cases are manufactured by MI forum member fcd72, who also makes the official clear plexi-cases.

Great video of a Werkstatt der Pfähler. I'll have to settle with living vicariously through the synths I mod and build. It would be nice to get my hands on a Mattson for sure...
From the video description:
Testing my laurentide synthworks modded moog werkstatt running patches to and from the mattson modular to make sure there are no weird grounding or stability issues between the two. if you haven't seen what laurentide does to these werkstatt's you should definitely check it out - nearly all available space is taken to install a giant bevy of 1/8" jacks, a MIDI-CV converter, fine tuning, and more (even a sort of "grit" circuit is added...) basically turning this thing into a super compact, modular workhorse! (http://www.laurentidesynthworks.net/)
in this video, the werkstatt sends out a clock (via its square LFO), gate and keyboard pitch CV to the mattson, which in turn sends back an arpeggiated pitch CV to the werkstatt oscillator (you don't hear the arpeggiated oscillator until about 1:15). sorry about the wacky video angle - the area i have the modular set up is pretty tight!
all of the bwazillion patch jacks obviate the need to play the werkstatt's built-in keyboard, but it is super handy to have the tiny keyboard right there tucked in with everything else while setting up patches.
this werkstatt/mattson combo can also be heard on the track "a healer is born" starting at around two minutes in our band's latest EP (although the patch is a fairly basic since i had just gotten the werkstatt when finalizing the song!) https://thenewlines.bandcamp.com/albu...
All sizes in stock! Added Small and XS.
I don't have the time to stop and patch, but I made some time to stop and patch.
Ambika has been discontinued and is no longer available at the Mutable Instruments store. Thankfully I have secured a small inventory of all PCB's. Once this stock is depleted I will begin having the PCB's manufactured. As of now, I will only offer them as part of a build request.

Finally stepping up the game and going legit!
Over the past several months I have been putting in a lot of time & money into LSW. What started out as just a simple kit building service has grown into what you see here. Most notably, the Werkstatt der Pfähler and several DIY Eurorack modules that are still in the prototype stage. The designs have been finalized and the proto boards have been ordered. If they check out, I should have kits/pcb's available by the end of next month.
You may or may not know by now that Mutable Instruments have discontinued the Shruthi and Ambika line. They will still sell the Shruthi Kit with the SMR Filter, but that's it. The good news is I be continuing these wonderful synths here. I'm still ironing out the details, so more on this later...
Anyway, I'm excited to see LSW continue to grow and contribute to the synth community. If you have any questions or concerns, send me an email to email@example.com
