So, I can't update the wiki, but with those last two, that's 48(+2). Does that mean anything?

Saw those old Yamaha FM chips in a box the other day and it popped into my head to see if another order ever got started... glad to see some movement in that direction!

Please put me down for one full kit minus the FM chips.

Thanks, Ed

This is going to be great.

BTW, I presume most of you already have seen this clip, showing a Synclavier owner who wrote a program in C to emulate the famous  fm Gong sound (e.g. Michael Jacksons Thriller) on an OPL2. Nice :-)

We should now be at 50 preorders if we counted psxc and Okko. Maybe we all wait longer?

Is everyone accounted for? I feel like we've already hit 50 preorders despite the list saying otherwise.

Also, any word on the overlays? The sammichSID looked great with them and I'm sure the sammichFM would be no exception.

Hi, Can I still sign in for a kit without the case, LCD/Leds?

Cheers,

Kees

The initial email went 3+ years ago, the waiting list was established over 1 year ago, we hit over 50 preorders (list not completely updated) and there hasn't been any sort of official word on an update. I'd think it's pretty safe to say this isn't happening. Compound this with the recent Volca FM release and this is making even less sense. Prove me wrong? (again)

Hola,

While - without feedback on that matter from either nILS or Wilba for about half a year - nobody really knows, if or when it will take place, it is safe to say, that building an original MIDIbox FM as documented on ucapps.de surely is still an option to get a MIDIbox FM :).

Big efforts were made by @Sauraen in the last time to build a STM32F4-powered new variant, and @Psykhaze is planning for a different version with a bit bigger CS than the SammichFM, but a smaller CS than Sauraens leviathan (not in a bad way, but probably too expensive and time-intense to build for the standard user) CS.

Methinks, there would be a big future for a new version of MIDIbox FM, if there is enough interest and an affordable CS can be designed.
Fortunately, imho Volca FM (also PreenFM) are totally different from the OPL3 "signature" sound that just brings back good old DOS-game memories (Dune II, anyone? :-))

Many greets,
Peter

Volca FM is a three-voice toy of a synth. Hardly compares to the MBFM, aside from both using FM synthesis.

So what's up with this? Is this happening eventually?

I realize I'm late but please add me to the list (or maybe there's a reserve list if more than 50 people have signed up). I've mailed Jason, hope this is still happening.

The sammichFM seems great: multitimbral, separate outs, awesome OPL sound - all in a neat little box. I'd really like to build one! :)
