I just got a ERD... seemed like an interesting and kind of fun concept...

First day in my studio, I notice the perspex box containing the soil is covered in water-drops of condensation all over the front of the panel.

Tried drying it out in the sun, and in a warm area of the house, but the moisture has not evaporated.

Now, I'm no expert, but even I know that water + electricity = bad news.

There are wires sticking into that apparently wet earth. Now I don't even want to take the risk of plugging it in. Is it safe?

Anyone else had this same issue?

Do you have a multimeter? If so you could try measuring the input resistance and comparing it to your other modules.

Is it safe?

I'd plug it in, maybe at first by itself if I didn't hear back from the manufacturer.

I haven't had the cash to pull the trigger but I am interested in both. Could we see/hear some basic demos? The posted examples are cool but dont really tell me much about what to expect is use.

...this thread is kind of a bummer. Ive been away for a while, it shocked me mildly to see how abusive the tone of some of the comments were. I feel the need to post some sort of "Im not an asshole, please keep dreaming up modules" note to the designer.

The black panel looks rad, I hope the special addition vampire/holy addition matches. I'd honestly prefer a dual unit that I could load with my own earth, or replace the earth easily. Will there be cv control of the switch between earth samples?

Keep it up

I wasn't trying to diss the module - I think its cool.

Just wondered if anyone else had got condensation on their ERD? And also what are the safety aspects of racking a module with wires sticking into wet earth!

No cause for alarm - the earth is sealed and isolated! It's worth checking the updated manual - trying to dry the module in sunlight will simply cause more condensation to appear as the earth heats up:

Do not expose the ERD/ERD to extremes of high or low temperature or to direct sunlight. Condensation may appear in the ERD window and this is no cause for concern.

Oh, and please do contact me directly if there are any questions...

ERD/γ will be the next release very soon... Work in progress (release sans rock!):

Yeah, mine has condensation too. It's actually comforting to me that it's still there, means it's well sealed.

Looking forward to more details on Y
But can we talk about the panel in the background there! Looks awesome

I'm pretty sure that is the Y. A gamma wave (γ) radioactive source based true random module. I spot a geiger tube.

ERD/ERD and ERD/SIR are both sold out - I think cymrubeats was the only stockist apart from myself. There will be the vampire earth release next month pending earth delivery from Jerusalem.

In a few minutes I'll announce ERD/γ in another thread!

i think this module would work well as a M4L device and or a AU/VST plugin.

Wouldn't that entirely defeat the point?

Not if you put dirt in your computer.

Maybe you can use this external dirt to control the VST?

HAHAHA

Seriously though I would love to see an amxd with that code in it or compile a max object with the function that fires off the sounds.

Are these being made again?

Or like this:

I still have some PCBs for that project (earthboot) somewhere if anyone's interested in figuring out any earth code style object!

Celebrating the re-release of ERD/ERD in new vampiric form:

There, in one of the great boxes, of which there were fifty in all, on a pile of newly dug earth, lay the Count!

The ERD/ERD vampiric edition contains mixed earth from both Golgotha, Jerusalem and Whitby Abbey, England. Whitby is the landing and stranding place of Dracula's ghost ship Demeter, delivering the fifty oblong boxes ("a number of great wooden boxes filled with mould") which find their way to the Count's chapel at Carfax. This earth is essential to Dracula, it forms "his earth-home, his coffin-home, his hell-home..."

At present this is only available to waiting listers who will be notified in the next few days. Hopefully some left soon.

That's gotta be one of the best panel designs out there, fantastic. Do you anticipate being able to get one to everybody on the waiting list?

I would say that almost everyone on the waiting list will have a chance to get hold of one... I'll start working through it tomorrow!

Good News. Any updates on the worm coming soon? It's easily my most anticipated module right now.
