This feels ominously like another very cool project gddfp announced and described in detail as it developed a few years ago, the Serge Obelisk drop in modules. viewtopic.php?t=32295&highlight=

Hoping this one is followed through to completion. I really like the look of both this and the Obelisks!

If not at least there's some really good ideas for a DIY project, and nobody is out of pocket as preorders haven't been taken.

I'll be pleasantly surprised if this ends up coming to fruition.

Hi all,

Sincere apologies for the yearlong delay... There were reasons.

Picked up the 416 Meta Expander again, and redesigned it for better stability, more functionality, and ease-of-assembly.

I've not decided on a housing yet (combo with either one or two 208's), and the 416's frontplate is still a kind of adhesive plastic.

Because I had to nix the company (=META=) a year ago, it will not be possible to sell this in larger quantities... Perhaps I'll do a few one-off's, depending on how much interest there is, and how much people are willing to spend on this (though mechanically & electronically streamlined, it is still a *lot* of work to assemble it).

Thanks for your patience.
_Guy

Looks like a lot less work than building a 208. Why can't this be made available through another partner? Open source it and let the community fill in the blanks. I would love to build this.

Hi all,

Thank you sincerely for your [renewed] interest ! And patience.

I'm still figuring out some hardware parts, so there's yet no definitive price set. I expect to finalize everything within a few weeks max, and will post here once everything is in place.

Two things I already like to share : a deposit will be required, and however much I'd like to sell it as cheap as possible, it... won't be. Not BEMI-ish for sure, but not Eurorack-ish either.

I'll try to come up with some video/audio soon, so you'll better know what it's capable of, and what to expect.


cheers,
_Guy
