There was a Blacet-mail sent out yesterday:
The F340 Cloud Generator has been delayed by the vendor due to parts shortages. We still hope tp ship these by late April but there is still an unknown factor at the assembly house and some manual assembly by the vendor Synth Tech.

We also have to do a bit of assembly and testing here.

The new FD3120 has been delayed for an unknown period due to a minor firmware glitch and we are not taking orders at this time. Unfortunately, our firmware programmer has encountered some personal problems and is no longer working on the project or answering emails. We can only hope that the situation will improve in the near future.

Since the programmer lives in Australia, it is not a case of paying him a personal visit to see what's up!

As a backup, if there is anyone who regularly programs the Atmel ATTINY84, please contact us if you are interested in some light work in exchange for a module or two. Use our regular email address: xxx

Regards,
john

Cheer up rezz! I have one on order (Cloud Gen) and I'm still :banana: It won't be too long!! I guess the dual divider is a bit of a bummer though. I'm sure it will be sorted out in the end.

Yeah I was hoping to order the Divider as soon as I finish my bit of sequencer DIY - hopefully John can get it sorted fairly quickly...

I expect to send Blacet their E340 boards around May 1st. The NKK switches arrived, the parts are at the SMT assembly house.

Thanks for the update.

Not gonna lie...I'm bummed about having to wait past the initial ship date indicated on the blacet page which was April 1. I usually don't pre-pay for modules because of this sort of thing. Anyway, venting over.

So realistically if blacet receives the boards May 1st, that means they just need to be assembled?

Assuming that won't take long as the boards are all assembled...

a) the April 1st missed date is entirely due to NKK switches arriving 3 weeks late

b) the assembly time is not too bad, I suspect he will have them cranked out quickly.

Was just thinking the same thing - I just received a small order from Blacet today that was delayed due to racks being out of stock, but alas no Cloud Generator in the package.. really looking forward to hearing this thing!

The delay is on my end, not Blacet. I am receiving the E340 stuffed pc boards on Monday. It will take a few days to burn the DSPs and test/pack/ship. John should have them in his hands next Saturday (week from tomorrow).
