He's frustratingly slow to respond. I did manage to get hold of him recently, expected ship date is between 21st and 25th of November.

Many thanks, I have no concerns that it won’t arrive, it’s just when so I can have a play

Received mine on Friday. Briefly tried it out controlling a Nebulae v2. It’s very well built and should be great for exploration.

Hi Everybody!

Just a little update: I've posted a Manual Addendum on my page and a firmware update file, which is only interesting for owners of first-batch modules that want the expander to work correctly and that want to have access to the new Fader Setup Menu that all new 'REV2' units have. The Addendum explains how it all works. All units that have "REV2" written on the back do NOT need to update, they already come with the latest code. In the Manual Addendum you can read up on the new curve setting for the crossfader.

As to the functionality of the expander: Keep the crossfader in the center position to have access to the full span using CV input going from -5V to +5V. The INV switch inverts the input. The potentiometer attenuates it. I chose this design over a classic attenuverter because it easily allows to fully mute the incoming CV and it feels less "fiddly" for my taste. I will try to post some kind of manual for the expander in the near future.

The TRIG input retriggers the motion recorder. That's really all there is to it. It also allows for firmware updates.

Sorry if some emails fell through the cracks, but I am usually quite fast to respond. Always hit me up if there's any questions!

Just pull it. I‘d use a flat screwdriver with some tissue paper underneath, just to make sure you don‘t scratch the panel.

Did you get yours? I just ordered mine. I want an expander too but they had sold out.

May I inquire, do you still anticipate adding one-shot animation via the expander? I think it would be a great feature and not disruptive at all to the current ergonomics.

Yes, I will look into that some time in March/April, thanks for reminding!
