Any idea on what the depth with be? Just wondering if it might fit into a Palette case.

Modulargrid says the E520 is 48mm deep so maybe not.

Is there a reason to pre-order now from the EU, instead of buying from an EU-dealer later? Or will they be only available from Synth Tech shop anyways?

It fits into a 4ms Pod48x, so it's definitely less than 51mm (derp, edited to show actual depth.Thanks gloamtrotter)

The larger pods are 51mm deep I believe

The website was updated recently and finalized on the 35mm depth. (And the committed algorithms, and more demos...)

Ah nice... the diffusion flanger sounds great and the voder's going to be fun.

Chowder Delay seems like it's going to be similar to Particle but friendlier... though "there is no feedback" immediately made me think "there will be when I patch it..."

Lots of potential in the dual mono combinations too...

I can already imagine myself wanting a second E520. No room though :hihi:

I had to get the Pod because no room as well. Looking forward to this one.

I’m going with the pod option as well. I like the idea of it not being tied to a larger case for ease of use with stuff outside modular.

I can afford to preorder this module due to. Wing out of work but I was wondering if anyone knew what the price will be for this module after the preorder is up?

I would imagine the premium will be 10-15%, but that's just a guess based on past stuff.

Sorry for not posting here for a while. Things with parts procurement went "all interesting" and I'm still beating up a few more suppliers to get all the parts to my assembler by 3June.

The initial pre-KickStarter orders will begin shipping around 20June, so 1 month later from when I made a guess back in November 2019. Not bad, actually, since CV-19 was not a 'thing'.

We are in final beta testing for the firmware. The HW is released to production and I'm just sitting here waiting for parts.

Pre-orders are closed. Dealers will be getting limited units later in the summer. The next batch of pots are not due to arrive until September, and can any of us honestly guess what this fall will be like?

Many new demos have been added as we refine the UI and tweak the algorithms. When I first envisioned this module, I was going to limit the algorithms to 8-12 MAX and focus on CV'd 'classics' like phasers/delays/etc. Now 1 year later, we are shipping with 25 algorithms, many of them based on spectral FFT processing. We added chain mode which my DSP programmer insisted "was not possible leave me alone stop talking about it" after much re-writing of the DMA system and moving the SRAM allocations around. It's a mind-boggling accomplishment, IMHO.

Check the demos and thanks again for the support and waiting along with the design beta team as we get to Production Day.

That's so exciting, even if I did get in late on the post KickStarter pre-orders!

Hi Paul. Just so I understand, does this mean you don't expect the post-Kickstarter pre-orders to ship any time before September?

I expect all placed orders (pre-KS. KS, post-KS) to ship by August 10th

That SD Flute Trio Demo gave me chills. I can't wait to see what this module does with a violin.

Anyone know if we can check out order status somewhere? In love with my new e370 and waiting eagerly :D

Essentially if he hasn't emailed you, your status is 'will ship by end of September'.

I was a pre-KS black panel, and mine shipped yesterday.

That seems contrary to what was stated above:

I was going off of the last thing I remembered from KS. In that case, I'm guessing your status is "It will ship by August 10."...

Quoting from the Sunday update to the Facebook group:

"26July Sunday PM Update
All of the E520 pre-KickStarter orders will ship this week. If you ordered before Nov 15th and have not received a E520 Confirmation email, please PM me.
I will start back shipping KickStarter orders, BLACK PANELS ONLY, later this week. If you are Backer #1 to Backer #33, you should have already received your SILVER panel. I will ship the black panels only until Backer #33, and then sequentially to the last Backer, #221.
I will estimate 4-5 weeks to ship the entire KS backlog.
Then, I will take a 10 day vacation (from shipping. Mostly will play video games and pinball).
After that, I will finish the post-KS orders."

So if we pre-ordered after the KS, expect a couple months it sounds like. Ok, i'll try to forget it exists again xD
