These pages contains all kinds of crap and is the website of Knas, possibly one of the most unknown names in
contemporary audio equipment.
It is also a container of information on my repair business as well as a bunch of old (and new?) Synth DIY stuff
i've made - don't expect anything in this domain to be done, be working or have a proper documentation, though feel free
to e-mail me if you wonder about anything and i'll try and answer promptly;
2015-04-28Knas stands with Freddie Gray. Baltimore is in chaos and it feels a little weird to just idly continue with life so i will take the liberty of postponing deliveries / work to help out in my community if i feel that i can add anything
2015-03-13It's been a long time since i posted anything so here's a quick update on what's going on with Knas. We've been working like crazy to reduce our backlog of moisturizer orders and after today it should be under 10 which hasn't happened in at least a year and a half. If we can keep it up you can expect quicker delivery times in the future.
Apart from that we've been working on acquiring new fabrication skills, if everything goes as planned you can expect some truly unique / bizarre things to come out of the Knas workshop in the next year or so - it's real exciting! We're also trying to up efficiency in general so we can start pumping out a few new products instead of just producing moisturizers, i won't lie, it gets a little tedious :)
2014-05-07So, i'm half way done with the current batch of Polygamists, the insanity and hardship involved in making these machines have lead me to conclude that there will be no more batches this way.
The last couple of months have involved me freaking out hardcore about once a week while working 10-13 hour days - not my idea of "fun" or "a decent life", so it has to stop.
Nevertheless there are two saving grace(s) here;
I will still have enough parts on hand to build a few more synths without any investments, so i might - maybe. Nobody will be allowed to put in deposits for them but i'll offer them as/if they become available. Those individuals who have contacted me about the synth but were to late to get on the last batch will have first dibs.
I'm hoping to be able to redesign the synth for actual massproduction (DIY style of course, no outsourcing), if this seems doable and there's enough interest i probably will.
Either way this sucks. I developed the synth for 3 years but only sold it for 2 :(
2014-03-29Shipped out the first 5 Polygamists this week and found the source of an issue that haunted some of the synths! Shut down shop early today to go see a talk with Genesis P-Orridge, seemed like a worthy reason for sure.
2014-03-24Finally got everything to start shipping out the Polygamists, the first ones should go out this week hopefully. I have - of course - run into a number of unexpected problems, which has slowed me down even more than more than expected, but such is life. If you're waiting to get a Polygamist, keep a keen eye on yr inbox.
