Well spotted Trond! Just watched the whole thing.... great interview! Lots of good Bug knowledge divulged and always good to see and hear Tom speak rather than reading emails.

Uhhhmmm, did somebody say 1fw phaser? :omg:

I was not expecting geopolitical questions to be addressed in this interview!

For a froggy like me, captions are definitely not of any help with Ben's accent :hihi:

Loved seeing Tom's space and hearing his thoughts - some very interesting insights into his designs! A master of his trade and great to hear about his continued enthusiasm.
Thanks to Divkid for the excellent upload 8-)

Haha - my personal Iraq!!
Yeah, big thanks to Ben for doing this!
& for the kind comments.
Life & the workshop are now relatively tidy/organised - a gradual /ever-evolving process for sure - I don't think things will ever stop being rough around the edges though!

Someone else wondering about all the prototypes in the background?

What is that red module at the 20 minute mark? All four colors of banan jacks and 3fw looks promising. Maybe a dual bugcrusher/sample and hold?

Well if I’m not entirely wrong it’s a proto for an Env-Amp module Tom was working on, could be wrong of course.... If I’m right there was a S&H tucked in there also. I’m sure Tom can shed some more light on this. :tu:

Awesome interview, love the idea of returning effects on a channel!

Also, a pingable phaser would be beautiful :eek:

I would love a pingy gurgly thing with chirper, dual filter, dual phaser...

Buggered it up totally in the layout stage - unable to be rescued/tested without a redraw - that happened, ooh, maybe 12 months ago already?! Ideas need momentum and this one got bogged down, for now.
Phasers too swim in and out of focus - but now that summer is ending, it should be time to get back to some evening zone-out-focus on new projects.

I find it very hard to make studio time during summer evenings. There is often something else to do and if the weather is actually good, I'm definitely not sitting in. Rain is pissing down this morning and I'm up early so good chance today will be productive. But first I'm going to watch above video with a coffee while putting some modules in my case.
