But that's in the USA right? Seems complicated to order from that far away.

They are still available. More were sent to Schneider last week, check with them in a few days.

Thanks a bunch! Can't wait to get my first Metasonix.

For those of you who have done some recording with the RK2, do you think I would need some kind of attenuation before sending the output to my interface?

My recording interface has a Maximum Input Level of +22 dBu.

The absolute maximum an RK2 can put out is 20v peak-to-peak which is about +19 dbu. So, it should be no problem.

What brand and model interface, and is it high-Z input or 600 ohms? The RK2 might have a problem driving a 600-ohm input.

Can anybody hip me to how much the initial draw this baby will have on my power supply? I know some of these horsecocks can draw as much as twice their coasting power when you fire up.

I’ve got two Metasonix modules (RK3 and R56) in one case but none in my other case. That needed rectification so I ordered a RK2 today. Looking forward to the addition of some brute force. :omg:
New track! Drum synthesis heavy, melodic piece using Instruō harmonàig and Cš-L. 🐡

Take note of how the inverted out distorts differently than the main out, especially when you turn the feedback knob up!

Yup, awful thing. No idea why the two outputs are different....

Oh crap, they’re all broken? I should have figured, based on the sound. :waah:
