Mine arrived today from Signal Sounds and it sounds stunning, it works wonderfully with my VPME QD, so well I may get a second one.

I still see them as being sold out on Signal Sounds - has the new batch sold out already? Hope not - I signed up for notification when they were back in stock, but have yet to hear anything.

They appeared as a preorder listing on their site last week, so I ordered one straight away, so I’m guessing that batch has sold out.

The HN page said available for pre-order when I visited, but there was only notification available on the FX AID page - must have just missed it :waah:

I can only inform shipment dates and estimated arrivals. All preorders and actual availability at the webshops are usually beyond my control.
Shipment to the Schneidersladen is ready and should be sent soon.

Look earlier in the thread. I believe Brendonlogic has a solution for that.

It uses T-18, not D-Shaft. I was hoping to get some Intellijel style small tall ones, but it seems like those are only available in D-Shaft.

There's a few options on Thonk. The slimmest would be the Micro T-18.

Yep, I put those micro knobs on mine, as have a few others in this thread, I think. They work really well!

No, just the regular small, unskirted knobs.

Listed as: Black Small Unskirted T18 - Sifam Plastic Knob on Thonk's site.

How do you find the spacing with the small unskirted? It looks less tight than the stock knobs, but still a little crowded. I'd either go for those or the micro knobs.

Don't worry - I wasn't blaming you. Any idea when the next batch will be made / shipped?

Analogue Haven was shipped today. Will ship Schneidersladen start of next week. Around 3 weeks arrival time for Midi Amsterdam. But it is really hard to predict anything these days.

Feels fine to me, definitely easier than the stock knobs. I'm not a fan of the micro knobs though, so I might be biased. Fine for Attenu-verting controls, but not main controls.

I really need to get ones of these. Especially with how small the footprint is.

This or Z5000, help!

I like the dry/wet cv on the fx aid, but what about range / quality. Anyone have both?

Got mine from Signal Sounds a few days ago. The only issue I have is that I immediately realize I’m going to need a second one.
