Can somebody snap a snap of the rear of the cloud generator? Very interested in this but it has to be bananable. I have even banana'ed the Hex Zone so anything is possible, however I want to know how deep I need to get.

Stuffed E340 boards arrived yesterday. I can't get to them until next weekend. I am packing up my house, preparing to move the first week of June. I have 24 years of crap piled everywhere. OK, my wife has 80% of the crap. Blacet gets the first E340 boards leaving the shop.

thanks for the update. is that delayed 10 days from this past weekend when you thought you'd get to them? (re: your previous post)

or 10 days from right now? Just checking because I may want to sell my pre-ordered module to someone else and have it shipped to them instead. I don't have what it takes for this indefinite waiting stuff :)

This will delay me getting pc boards to Blacet for 2 weeks.
BugBrand wrote: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

Blacet's E340 order ships tomorrow. Assuming I survive all the tornadoes, hail and 90MPH down-drafts. My neighbor's wood fence is now up in a tree.

I got to try out the Cloud Generator a little last night. I'm really loving it!

The only thing I would change is adding a square wave output, or replacing the sine wave with square. That being said, I effin love this module.
