AFAIK it's just a different term for the same thing. "End Of Cycle" or "End Of Release." It's a really useful feature to have in an EG.

I agree.

Notced that EOD is also start of sustain. Really just a naming convention.

Thanks for pointing those things out as I wasn't sure. I have a quad ADSR with EOA, D & R. Now it makes more sense, especially the end of decay = start of sustain. :banana:

Nice functionality! When do you anticipate assembled units will be available?

Nice looking layout! I'm looking forward to getting hold of a couple of these and making some music with them.

Whats with the tmebase settings ?
I’m thinking x2 would be more useful than x5 and x50 is a bit much. What am I missing ?
I know the 2070 can go for hours but does anyone actually use those settings ?

The 50:1 range is quite compressed compared to the 2070's 6000:1! But this will be generally useful unless you do looong space music drones.

Still preliminary of course and the timing caps are in an accessable spot.

I have actually used the extra long setting on the 2070, more than once, even!

Half Power Point of the descending envelope. If the sustain is about 50%, then this is pretty much EOD. Otherwise, the response occurs at 50% of the envelope level.

That's outstanding.
Global CV and the attenuverters are great features that I miss all the time.
I'll be keeping my EG1s because I do use the super-slow setting sometimes, but I'm really looking forward to this new design.

Nice! I guess the HPP event happens as the inverted output is rising? I can see patching the HPP output to another EG2 or a DAD to make another event happen somewhere during the sustain phase within a total patch.

What's the function of the +/- controls on the CV inputs, (phase control, CV bias)?

how does it loop and how much do you expect it to cost?

On the Global CV input, if nothing is plugged in, then the inverted envelope is normalled. The negative side of this is great for bending the A,D,R segments.

Pricing and delivery are unknown.

Cool!

My biggest complaint about stacked boards like this is the rigid connection that some of the modules have. If you ever have to replace a pot, jack or switch it can be a pain. On my MIX3500 and Super VCAs I used wires verses the 0.1" pin strips.

Thanks!
