Ooo i was hoping to see the silver frontpanel today! Damn panel makers always taking their time xD...

I think i WAS gonna go for black because white things and me don't mix, much, they look nice the day you get them then two weeks later your wondering what made all the marks lmao, so i was going for black for that reason even though i did find the white more visualy appealing!

Hopefully the silver just looks the best and i get away from both black and white options xD

Yeah the Catskills are a region of woods in southern NY. Beautiful land. He is at the footsteps to the Catskills.
Also famously once called the Borscht Belt! This delights me in terms of comedian lounge magic going into the machine.

Funny how people out of the area spin Newburgh which yes, is part of the Catskills, but sadly has a real problem with drug related crimes. Little to no Eastern European influence these days.

The pictures of the VU Meters encased in Lucite(?) are dead sexy.

Bring on the silver faceplates!

I don’t think anyone’s trying to spin Newburgh as a Catskill nature park. Old city with lots of relatively affordable industrial space to use for creative ventures? -Yep. The sort of place where creative people find a home base for their experiments/art/projects/startups. Within minutes of vast tracts of woods? Yep.


I know there has been nothing new for a while but maybe a discussion could focus more on the actual device and possible uses?

The idea of sequencing delay parameters in addition to filter settings for accents is so romantic... I tried to approximate this with a couple rows of voltage sequencer and MoogerFoogers MF-104M and MF-101, and found myself wanting the filter being animated to be a Bandpass... Why oh why did Moog not make a MF-101H and L, forming a serial Bandpass...? Anyway, TE-2 will be bad to the bone...

I’m excited about the feedback loop, been messing with that on a few delays recently.

I have a whole box of cassettes from a school library, educational things. That should make some fun sampling

If you use those tapes with this device's echo on, it will ruin the recording. The echoes are literally written into the tape then through erase heads so whatever was originally on it will be gone and/or have what came before it and was fed-back, written over what comes later.


Unless you're saying you're going to do something else and I am misunderstanding you

So is the playback head moved mechanically to determine the space between each feedback?

Just being able to play the tapes back modulating the speed the start stop, the filter etc. will be fun. I don’t think I’d want to use them as delays because then, yeah you lose it all.

One thing i really want to do is record some of the sounds on my tracks then modulate the the playback to make the stop like when you turn a technics deck off and it keeps spinning but slower and slower till it stops, but being able too tune this maybe with envelopes maybe i will need to get a make noise Functional for the hold. I wish maths had the hold instead of the cycle quite frankly, well, maybe i don't haha but i do with one side had it xD

Zzzzzzzzz stop xD

I really look forward to having this mechanical device under midi/cv control.. opening a door to another mode of working and soundscape design. The easy integration of cassette recordings right into the modular will be lots of fun. Can for the most part retire my Walkman from these duties..

Looks like some sheet metal is getting done lately..?? I am really excited for pcb shots eventually. That will be a uuuge moment in the development of this thing.

There's midi on this dreamer? Or do you just mean a Midi to CV signal?

For CV, I'd be interested in using an Landscape HC-TT to hand crank a delay pattern with the CV it sends out into some of the TE-2 parameters.

No MIDI on this. I meant using my midi-cv..

Hand cranking the landscape and using that to control te-2 sounds like a fantastic way to get truly organic controls.

I see what you are saying now, yes that would be very fun for sure.

I'm sure you could do some serious mangling by time stretching on samplers -> tape -> change speed ::repeat::

There isn't a pcb yet. Only its design.

I simply must see the silver and black faceplates fully assembled, respectively... As TE-2 to decide... It's a tie... The sexiness...

Yeah seeing all the countersunk holes for hardware made me realize that until these are actually assembled, it’s not the full picture. I know Jim’s tendencies towards aesthetic means that he’s pondering the little things like hardware as well...

Wait we must. Trying to keep this thread alive in the hopes that Jim decides to pop in with any shred of information.

Organism, post some more links would ya!?

I must admit I was expecting to see more than a corner of the silver and see them all to choose lmao! A full mock up would be nice too xd
