Sorry it's been sparse the last couple days, but I had my problem tooth, of which I've waxed poetic the last couple months, removed from my head yesterday. On top of that, we're very close to a release for Discord 2 (thank all the gods) and that is chewing a lot of my time up.

Other stuff going on: I've received all the parts from JLM Audio that I need to rack my soon-to-arrive Telefunken V376 mic pre. I ordered the power supply, Go-Between, and DI kit from JLM on Thursday, and they arrived on Monday. From fucking Australia. Do you believe that? I didn't. The kits are very nice, but I'm having some trouble putting the power supply together. The pads are extremely close together, and they take solder really well, so I've had some trouble accidentally bridging shit and what not. I fully expect this power supply to blow up the first time I plug it in.

I've ordered a mini toroid power transformer from Digi-Key, and all the Neutrik connectors from Mouser, and an absolutely beautiful clear anodized (read: aluminum-colored) rack from Par-Metal. If all shipping quotes are to be believed, I should have everything needed to put this bitch in my rack in about 8 to 10 days. Provided I don't blow the fucking thing up, all should be good. I'm trying to decide which EQ to put with it. I'm leaning right now towards an NTP 182-150, but I might be interested in a TAB W395A. If I could find an EMT 260 filter/limiter, I might throw that in instead.

In any case, back to work. Discord 2 is done; we're just assembling the installers and writing the manual, and doing final testing at this point. Expect it in a couple days.

UPDATE: The power supply didn't blow up when I plugged it in. In fact, it actually works perfectly. Go figure.
