Since we have the PCBs & PCB-As, but the EU webshop is still taking a while, we figured that we could just send invoices to you EU people and ship the PCBs without the shop. For the US, it's probably easier to purchase from Synthcube.

Progue has two options: PCB only or PCB-A (pre-soldered SMTs). They both have the mainboard, the connector board, and the panel (PCB). The custom enclosures will arrive in a month or so (price TBA).

Prices are as follows:
PROGUE PCB only bundle (3 PCBs) --- 79eur (inc. VAT24%)
PROGUE PCB-A (3 PCBs with pre-soldered SMTs) --- 179eur (inc. VAT24%)
RESONATOR PCB only bundle (3 PCBs) --- 39eur (inc. VAT24%)

Shipping with GLS, from Finland (EU), shipping costs will be added depending on your location.

Check build-related details from JSISYNTH.COM and send me PM at muffs or email info@jsisynth.com

Edit: Sorted. Mods, feel free to delete my posts on this thread since they concerned the resonator.

The first PCB-A's have been shipped and they have pre-programmed firmware that has MIDI Sysex update ability. So, PCB-A buyers don't necessarily need that STM32 programmer.

The production run of the Progue enclosures should be ready in 2-4 weeks.

All great looking and exciting.

I know it is too late but is there a way to make the envelopes graphically linked to their function? Obviously you will easily get used to what is what and perhaps this is my weakness rather than a design problem.

looks great - I see SynthCube is sold out, will you be sending more over there in the future?

lovely panel.
In the past, I've had panels made by Schaefer but they only do a digital print.
Screen print is so much nicer.
Spartanite Case for Synthi A/KS available for trade. Looking for OP1 in exchange.

Hi all!

Just wanted to let you all know that I finally updated our www.jsisynth.com website to have an online store. Safe shopping via Shopify for all the EU people.

BTW, the first run of Progue metal enclosures will get painted next week, and then they are off to the silkscreen process. We ended up choosing classic style colors: Black with white silkscreen and Cream White with black silkscreen. Price still TBA and available at our store hopefully in 2-3 weeks. Stay tuned!

now that the SMD boards are out, might not be a bad idea to make a "rest of the parts bom", its a bit cumbersome to go through the main BOM and try to pick out what needs to be ordered

There’s a PCB-A BOM available at jsisynth.com.

Just wanted to thank Janne for a fun build and fantastic sounding synth with crazy deep bass; I was going to settle for the Hammond enclosure, but after playing the synth, it definitely deserves a proper case and wood cheeks - will look great beside Devin's Weston Pro2021. Will definitely be ordering a case from Janne's store when they are available (do they come with wood panels?).

I just had one "hidden" solder bridge on the DAC (a tad too much paste - of course on the smallest component), plus I hand-soldered my first 0.65mm VFDN on the TSSOP pad for one of the voltage regulators (couldn't track down any TSSOP packages when I ordered, but of course there are plenty in stock now). The eBay STM32 also turned out to be genuine - was worried about that. The rest of the build was great, and the SMD LEDs and tons of test points are a great touch.

Great! And thank you for the kind words!

We might offer pre-cut wood sides (with a CNC machine), but they will be unvarnished. Let's see.
