Oh now you're just being a tease! Safe to say we can see a 2020 release?

Short update.

Things are moving along!

Awaiting final build quote before ordering production.

Preparing all the post-design stuff.

And here's a little video snippet from the workbench for now.

Thru-zero AM (4-q analog multiplier) - which is one of the changes since announcement in 2017.

Definitely 2020 proper "launch" - with a ship date nailed down, and all the good stuff rolling out!

The module will be ready for you in that regard. Unfortunately, manufacturing is very, very slow this year. Hasn't gotten much better as it went on, either.

I hope to have some QTY (like low double digits) ready to ship before year's end, but manufacturing has been hell, so I don't know if they'll pull through with full quantities before year end. Probably not. But it would be awesome if that happens. Fingers crossed for a bit of relief in that regard.

More news when things get solid. :sb:

Dash Glitch has been jamming away in his corner of the YouTubes with it in more streams, since he's one of a couple of people with a preview prototype racked. Here's a gooder since that last one quoted. Doing more mid/lead-y alien sounds with it:

Getting strong Eat Static vibes from that, very nice.

Man, this module has been on a long road, fingers crossed for getting it over the line, 2020 and all. It looks ace, moar analogue TZ modules in Euro can only mean moar fun. Good luck, you magnificent bastards.

Oh wow, that must be tough for you guys. I'm going to guess that rules out distribution for a while and direct sales only?

Preorder for Mindphaser is now on! Just placed the order. Expected shipment date, sometime in March...

And pre-ordered!

I will say, the Dash Glitch video wasn't particularly impressive, which is a little bit disappointing as he's done some more interesting patches with Mindphaser on his streams.

Agreed on the video leaving a bit to be desired. Looking forward to owning this beast as well - pre-ordered! I have a pretty sizable drum modular right now, but no dedicated voices yet. Mindphaser was always going to be my first synth voice. Love when a plan comes together haha.

Hey everyone sorry for the delay!
Had to take a bit of a breather away from the computer after preorders went live. Been working like mad. :) Missed posting the forum updates in the process.

So yes -- Mindphaser is now available for preorder!

There's a little interactive demonstration at the preorder website, in case you missed it.
Click the icons on the panel to see real oscilloscope captures from my bench, alongside spectral analysis in the window.

Finalising the packaging and stuff like that now!

Thanks all for your support, I'll be back with some updates as things near closer to release in sight.

Helloooo everyone! Quick production update here.

Mindphaser parts have all arrived now, so that's a significant milestone passed.

They are now flowing through the oven and will move on to selective solder after that.

Will have more production updates as they progress, but it's looking like a March ship date.

Thanks for your support!

I've been ignoring this module for a long time because I didn't want to get hyped for something with such an indeterminate delivery and because "I don't need another complex oscillator" but I watched the technical presentation and I am definitely interested now! :omg:

I am really looking forward to this release. I know that you're taking pre-orders on your site, but can I assume you'll be also shipping stock to US dealers as well (e.g., Detroit Modular)?

Yes of course! Detroit Modular has some on order, along with your other usual suspects. As soon as the modules are ready they will be dispatched to pre-orders and dealers, too.

I would consider asking Hexinverter if those will be part of the first batch. I was sent an email from Hexinverter that the parts were in and first batch was almost all claimed (this was a few days ago), so I went ahead and preordered direct from him.

I currently don't have a dedicated Complex Oscillator in my case, and I've got a 30hp blank with the Mindphaser's name on it. I'm very excited for this.

Thanks! My DM sales contact already set me up!

By the way, for everyone who put in their pre-order, how did you decide on the Mindphaser over the other contenders? Which of the other complex oscillators did you choose it over and why?

Not being too familiar with complex oscillators in general, I thought that the TZ-PM bus being "independent from the actual VCO-cores themselves" is a unique and highly beneficial feature; i.e., As their demo video states, "So that when you apply linear-FM to the carrier, it's actually completely independent of the phase-modulation occurring . . . [and the] modulation oscillator's sine-wave output is by default, normalled, to provide the phase-modulation source." —Mindphaser Technical Demonstration.

Awesome! Thank you for the quick reply! Aside from sounding insane, the module really looks gorgeous, too—really excited!!!

Already Front Line Assembly comments above... BUT... I just realized... once I get my Mindphaser... I'll have the ultimate Tactical Neural Implant duo...
