How have y’all been liking RND Step? How does it compare to other S&H modules? (or modules with S&H ie Wogglebug or Nano Rand)

Petition to move parts of this thread into a new one entitled “Instruo Trading cards” or similar — it would make it more obvious that Ben is not involved in every single one of these teased projects and avoid shading the different parties in these various collaborations

I received a teaser card for a 4hp "cascading logic" unit called eãs.

Has anyone heard any word on when these are going to be available again stateside?

Another production run is coming around shortly. Really didn't expect them to sell out so fast...

I’m just starting to use mine and those half-rectified outputs are a simple stroke of genius. I also wanted to complement you on the fit and finish: the entire module from face plate to PCBs is quite elegant.

Nice. Thanks for the heads up. Just ordered from there (and actually, hadn't even heard of this shop before--a nice discovery in its own right!).

@analogpedagog - Just wanted to say congrats on this module :) I remember looking up S&H's last year and discovering the common issue with hysteresis (which I am assuming is the same as "droop") - so what you accomplished here seems like quite an impressive feat. Haven't tried the module yet, but I keep thinking of new ways it would be useful or interesting to patch... seems like a 'must have' utility if rnd/noise isn't covered in a rack already.

Now I'm torn between this or ADDAC 215 to add some more S&H to my system. Not going to get either right now - I've spent way too much lately.
I plan to get both.

@analogpedagog: are there any plans to release a version of this with a silver faceplate? (I'm trying to decide if I should buy one now, or wait.)

I know, I know, it is what it is. But I can’t help wishing there was an adjustable slew, even on just one channel.

Thank you, was a bit of a challenge but in the end it just fit.
And yeah I really liked the idea of the half rectified outputs. Its nice to include your default setting in a random patch and kills another bird by polarizing the output.

Thanks much. Designing an analog S&H is full of trade-offs in certain aspects of performance. There are always better ways and room for improvement but overall Ben and i are really happy with the all-round result given the very limited space to fit it all. Not to mention along with six high gain noise generators waiting to infect the circuitry...

I don't have plans to make a silver metal version. I do miss the metal panels but the FR4 panels have just been more economical for my tiny business and they are much quicker turnover to produce vs the metal.

It's a great module. Previously I had the 2hp S+H and didn't expect it to be so inaccurate (most noticeable with CV intended for pitch). So this is a great replacement with very little droop.

One thing RND Step has in common with the 2hp module is that it's deep (45mm). I wasn't expecting that. It won't fit into the bottom left side of my 7U Intellijel case and I struggled to get it to fit in the bottom right side too - I had to remove another module's cable that was plugged in below. But it does fit - just.

I've only had RND STEP for 2 days, but I can't get over how good it is, and in such a small footprint. I've loved my URA, but I think this might nearly eclipse it.

Using RND STEP and Ochd, it makes me really that think the next Divkid collab should be an offset/attenuator to go with them. I love the ALMt O/A/x2, but I feel like there should be a dedicated module for directing these two amazing sources of modulation.
