We wound up getting the alpha PCBs five days before our booth at Maker Faire: http://community.axoloti.com/t/san-francisco-may-20-21-22-2016-maker-faire/1365). It was a tough scramble, but there were no errors on the boards (Aside from a short from a screw to chassis :/.
Everything works, we're just hacking away on the software end to get a more immediate and understandable interface.
We've changed the name to Wanderlust and gave it a less traditional set of icons. We wanted it to be less techy and more playful. I liked going on roadtrips when I was a child, because I really had no idea what was around any given corner, and that's sort of what it's like when you're noodling around on a synth.
The response time on all of the capacitive pads (I call 'em pad-caps) is great, thanks to the hardware. I think only a drummer would be able to tell any latency. The multi-touch is going to be the really shining, especially since you can assign every key on the keyboard to a separate or multi-control oscillator chain.
We're sending out the first alpha hardware next week and will be sending out the alphas one at a time to incorporate any improvements we need.
We haven't finished pricing / schedules yet, but if you sign up, you'll be the first to know. Our crowdfund will be early September. Obviously early-bird and axoloti community member discounts.
I can't see the forest for the trees anymore, so feel free to ask any questions about the direction the hardware is going.
