Nice! Will it remember the last used effect and CV assign after a power cycle?

Yes, it remembers last used effect and assigns.
Will do some demos, despite crazy copyright troubles with youtube.

In this demo “Cloud” reverb is used (inspired by Big Sky’s Cloud algo).
There are also other Big Sky specific reverbs: Swell, Bloom, Cloud, Chorale, Shimmer, Magneto, Nonlinear.

Very interested. Modular Grid page shows it as "currently available".
Are production units ready now or soon? When will it start shipping?

Will post the list of effects tomorrow.
All of them are carefully programmed by me. I have the working prototypes, it is not available for purchase at the moment. But it is not something just imaging and vaporware like.

"32 unique audio effects" , but 7 of them are copies of Strymon's reverbs?

The reverb sounds great and stereo inputs as well. I'm sure all of your FX modes will have the same quality. I was looking at the Un-released TipTop Verb but it's a little too wide in HP.

He said "inspired by", not copies. And if you're going to do a collection of reverbs that's a good place to get inspired from IMO. :)

Spin based fx depend on the quality of the programs, glad to see someone craft their own and not fill the module up with the freeware spin programs.

Of course, the final determiner will be how good the algorithms sound, looking forward to demos.

At this price point and size, if the fx sound good this module seems like a winner to me.

Huh, a compact fx module with stereo in. Color me interested. This could be the next pico dsp.

Hello. Very nice. I am interested pending hearing more of the reverb algos and with different sound sources.

By the way, I listened to this demo first on YouTube then on Vimeo, both at 1080p. Vimeo sounded much better. No contest.

Good Luck with what promises to be an excellent new module design.

Excellent idea. Looks like a great design. Maybe this will provide some much needed competition to the Erica Pico DSP!

Congrats on the new module, however its only disappointment for me... the size of the module, with 4 full size knobs in such a tight space seems like a nightmare.

Sure, I get the mindset behind a module packed with features, but come on... ergonomics.

Will be available in both silver and black versions. Will post the black version photo as soon as I will get the panel. And will inform the current consumption a bit later.
Algos can not be counted as art objects, so “unique” in this case means new to eurorack or designed with respect to our needs.

Here is the biggest part of the available effects. FX AID runs 32 effects at once, but not limited to this amount. I will provide the easy way of reflashing the factory effects with the desired ones in any order. Will add the possibility to run freely available third party effects too.
Easy reflashing means the following: playing 40 sec long “wav” file with line level to CV input.
Reflashing mode: hold both buttons for 10 sec. This part is already done. Web editor to select the desired effects and generate that “wav” file is to be done yet.

“Tone” control: bipolar, neutral in the middle (12 o’clock), CW – cuts lows, CCW – cuts highs.
