To commemorate our one year anniversary of our successful Kickstarter campaign, we will release MOD3 on July 22nd. We are finishing up a couple of details and will start shooting video soon. Stay Tuned:)
Added the Synthboy+ Replacement & Programmers Guide to the Documentation Page. Here is the link: CLICK HERE! The guide is zipped. You will need Adobe Reader to view this guide. If you added the ‘Programmers Option’ to your Synthboy+, then this is a must have guide for you. We have plans for the GBLFO Arduino too so stay tuned for more info!
Had a couple of issues and I want to reassure those people we will take care of those issues. If you have had any problem with shipping or customs or anything, please email me directly. Chris@blarsky.com We thank you again for all of your support for this project. We worked very hard and we are extremely happy with how this has turned out so far. Expect us to keep going forward with development of more features and modifications.
Expect an update at least once a month. I will email out an update roughly around the first of every month. If any of you would like to beta test modifications and help us with information guides and general overall help. Please contact me directly. We appreciate any help keeping the forward momentum going:)
Many of you have let us know that you will try and include this into your music. We are honored and pleased and please let us know as we will publish Soundcloud and YouTube links right here on this blog. We are excited to hear how the Synthboy+’s perform. We expect that you will have suggestions and ideas on how to make things even better. If you have a chance we would love to see pictures of your modded Gameboys. Please leave comments and let us know.
For those who want to use the DB9 cable we included or your own, please be aware that it will NOT work without a modification to the Gameboy or the cable. It will work standard with the upcoming MOD2. I will have more information about this next week.
And again we are very thankful for your support.
Chris and Josh
Expect an address confirmation email on Tuesday! If you don’t see it, please check your junkmail! We are excited to be shipping out the Kickstarter rewards a full month+ early!!! We again want to thank everyone for supporting us. Code has been released and guides have been added. Please check the links under the SYNTHBOY+ above. We will add more MOD information there soon.
We look to release MOD2 in January of next year. MOD3 will be soon after that. We also will open our online store in two or three weeks. In the store we will have more modded Synthboy+’s and also a very special Sexboy we call the Unicorn. Look for it soon.
More updates will be forthcoming. If you have any problems with customs or shipping or any other issue, please email me directly firstname.lastname@example.org
In case any of you were wondering what my day job is, here is a sneak peak. Here I’m standing next to one of my creations. I’m the project manager for a balloon company in Denver, Colorado.
Last week was very productive. This week we are focused on assembly and testing. We will start emailing you directly to confirm shipping address and give you an estimate date of delivery. Look for more updates the closer we get as I will want everyone to keep watch for their Synthboy+.
Thank you again to everyone for all of your support.
We are excited by the response. We will release a detailed product video in the next 7 days that will explain more of what the SYNTHBOY+ can do. We are working on it now. I will also update everyone to what we are up to every 7 days. Planning the update for every Sunday. We are excited to share our ideas with the community and would love to have some constructive criticism as to what could be tweaked and designed better as well as what you would like to see. Please let others know of our project so we can build this community and make some great 8 bit sounds together.
We are taking a small break from the build of the Prototype II to focus on getting this Kickstarter funded so we can get these projects off of the ground.
Thank you again for all of the support!
