really wide range of sounds in there tom, plus the full system section at the end. a joystick / touchplate module would work great with it.

Very nice video (and audio)! Great little machine on its own, and still able to be part of a larger system.

I love the fact that youtube followed it up (on autoplay) with another demo of yours, from 2011 :)

Yeah, I'll be getting on to them once I've done my quarterly accounts - so reckon by mid Feb.

Glad I finally got the Chirper out! There may still be a few available once the dust settles.

After the mailout I realised that I only mentioned the mod-points on the instruction sheet - so hope people read that! There are points for further CV ins and an audio in to the filter (though you'd really need a preamp)

Maybe sometime I'll describe how I farted around designing a whole expander (3FW with touch points, audio in, sample & hold, etc) before deciding I didn't like it..

Hehe. I really hope touchplates get implemented into something in the future. I would be curious to hear why you didn't like the implementation on the chirper. I see Meng Qi was playing his with bare banana plugs and skin contact so there's always that for the curious.

Oh btw Tom I think the link to the instructions PDF on the site is broken, when I click the link I get:

If you are in US near Philadelphia you can see a Chirper and twirl it around a bit on January 28. :banana:
It's one of the prototypes and I'm bringing it to a meet & greet, headphones only, gathering at a music store. More details in the appropriate Gatherings thread here.
