the Jesusonic SKULR is born (name pending)


As a followup to the last post, here is a picture of the new Jesusonic model in development. 
It's considerably smaller than the CrusFX 1000, and has plenty of room to shrink even more 
for the production model. This is the secular alternative to the CrusFX, and has other 
advantages. This one measures about 21" wide, 9" deep, and 3.25" high. I am pretty confident 
that will be able to be more like 8" deep and 2.5" high soon.

On a personal note, it's very satisfying going through an interative design process, learning as
I go, and realizing "hey, the next model I can make it even smaller." 

I think this model is going to get stained, as well. yum. The screen and keyboard will be recessed
into the top of it, the knobs will be along the front of the top (and they will be protected if
I get my way), the CF slot will be on the right side, all the power and audio i/o will be on 
the back, and the right side will have the footboard and expression pedal ports.

Soon I will be building the custom boards for this model. I set up a new little desk just for 
soldering and testing. fun.
 
I still need to find a nice compact backlit keyboard. help.

These might be a little expensive and full sized, but ThinkGeek has a couple of nice backlit ones.

yeah so to be more specific, I'd like something where the letters light (not the entire board, that's too much light), and a compact keyboard form factor. And while I'm at it, I want it to be
