  1. Hi Tom!
    Glad to read this. When do you think the kits will be orderable – I’d like to get one for my second DSS-1! 🙂

    • Yes, I’m still working on it…
      I’ve disassembled and analyzed most of the operating system. Next step is to rebuild the software on a newer microcontroller and add new features. After that, there will have to be new boards designed and built.
      -CPU upgrade board
      -New analog board (re-using existing filter chips) to allow for more filter options, resonance, external filter input, and more
      -memory expansion board
      Pricing and release date TBD.

  2. I would like to be informed of all news with the DSS 1 upgrades kits and their availability.
    My plan is to purchase one and have Allen Coppock at Synth Spa do the installation.

    I look forward with enthusiasm about getting closer to upgrading my DSS1. There is nothing else like it in any keyboard arsenal.

  3. Hey Tom, can I get on a waiting list? I live in the Bay Area. I would like you to do the work,let me know. Thanks – MH

    • I don’t have a waiting list, but I do have kits available at the moment. My time to do installations is very limited, but if you’re not in a rush I can get it done. Use the contact form (instead of the comments area) to send me a PM.

  4. Hi Tom,

    I would love to be informed when you have another run of DSS-1 upgrades.

    Many thanks
