Mine finally scanned in to US Customs! Hadn’t budged on the tracker since April 23rd. If you’ve been anxiously waiting for one I thought you’d like to hear that.

I wonder if these will load ( wavs ) been waiting for a hardware convolution reverb to load these for years.

Can anyone highlight how many impulses a card can hold and whether the card can contain different folders of impulses ?

As far as my tests go, it would be very well possible for
those IRs to load. I’ve successfully loaded a
couple from different sources. Though I haven’t tried these specifically.

W.r.t the amount: I’ve loaded over 200 on a card, and I suppose the limit is possibly only restricted by the size of the card. The catch is that there is no folder support currently, so browsing many IRs is a bit cumbersome.

Ok it's 1811 EST and it looks down again. How am I supposed to order a module I can't even get to the site of? I gotta say I'm a little nervous ordering an expensive module that depends on firmware if they can't keep a website up.

Probably just demand is higher than they anticipated and they didn't buy enough server bandwidth before launching this thing or something. I doubt it's due to the technical deficiencies of Tasty Chips' programmers.

No I get it, but I don't get why they don't get a distributor or host or something. This is the third time I've tried to go to their site (with the intention of buying) but it won't load. Is anyone distributing this?

Both times you’ve reported the site being down I’ve opened it fine on my end. Perhaps there is another issue? Maybe you could email them directly at info@tastychips.nl and see if they can help you out.

btw, firmware update(s) are not possible on user end, they 'll have to change chips, hence the name

Under 'Control voltages' the ECR-1 manual states that the "Aux" CV input "currently modulates pitch bend", but the diagram states that it currently modulates the wet signal. Which is the actual default status, and can the Aux CV input be reassigned easily?

Interesting. I used a US-based proxy and it came up fine. Very strange bc I am not with a small provider or anything like that. I tried on 2 different computers (two different OS) both with the same results but the proxy comes up fine. Very strange.

I have also heard these which sound fabulous!

By the way, if someone has other ideas of IRs, it would be interesting to post them here :)
I’ve tried the 2nd edition of these IRs and they sound really interesting! Especially those vintage reverb plates and the ones with harmonics. Works well in the ECR-1.

That said, does anyone know if you can extract the IRs from altiverb, or know of any high quality room response library? Ideally in stereo?

There are a few free libraries online that might do the trick:
Lexicon 480
https://www.housecallfm.com/download-gn ... xicon-480l

Bricasti M7

(it's a wayback machine link, but it works, be it very slowly:) )

If anyone knows any more places feel free to share.

Currently it modulates the wet knob.
As far as i know there's currently no possibility to change this.

Thanks for the info. That's a pity; modulating the pitch of the impulse response would be much more exciting prospect for me. ;)

Thank you for the awesome suggestions! One question though: The Waves IRs are in the wir format; It seems proprietary found some info here: http://freeverb3vst.osdn.jp/tips/tips.shtml -- but can the ECR-1 read it? Did you try? Or do I need to write my own converter for it?

I personally don't pitch the impulses all that much, as i find results not that pleasing for my applications.
One thing i really like doing is setting the release quite short and setting or modulating the position. When a reverb dies out, it loses high frequencies so it colours the sound in a very nice way. Great for percussion.

I completely forgot about them being in .wir extension. I have a folder on my computer where i store all my found and created impulses, but i didn't use the waves ones yet.
If you get them to work, drop a line...

I actually managed to pull out IRs from them using the commandline and sox, if they are stereo:
tail -c +125 inputIR.wir | sox --norm -t raw -b 32 -c 2 -r 48000 -e float - -b 16 --norm outputIR.wav

YMMV :party:

Re my above questions, I've just had this reply from Tasty Chips on messenger via their FB page.

"We'll release a V2 DIMM (you can swap out the DIMM) on the back of the module and this will feature assignable aux, and a lot of other features."
