My move to the new house is complete, so I’ll begin manufacturing DSS-1 kits shortly. I expect them to be ready by end of March. There are 20 kits left at $250 each. As always, installation by a professional service center is strongly recommended.
EDIT: The new kits have arrived! The PCB assembly company did a great job. There was a bit of a delay due to some components I forgot to order.
Glad to read this. When do you think the kits will be orderable – I’d like to get one for my second DSS-1! 🙂
hi, was wondering if you are still working on the dsm1 upgrade kit? would Love to do this to my rack unit
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.
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.

Hi Chris, I have kits available now. Send me a PM using the contact form (instead of the comments area) and we can get the ball rolling.
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.
I would love to be informed when you have another run of DSS-1 upgrades.
Fill out the email form on the homepage on this site and you’ll be informed…
Do you still have any DSS-1 upgrade kits left?
I might just be interested.
I don’t have any more kits available. I’m redesigning them and hope to have them available again in about a year.
I am also interested so if you could add my name to the list that would be much appreciated.
I’m looking for an upgrade kit or two as well. Please keep me in the loop. Thanks so much.
