The whole new Bastl lineup looks totally amazing. Definitely interested in Thyme. Reminds me in parts of the OTO Biscuit.

A little talk about it on this video. Parameters over open DSP architecture? Definitely interested! And indeed it reminds me of the Biscuit. Hope it's more than a bit crusher though, I'd love it if it could do higher-fi stuff.

Here's my interview regarding the Thyme. The video doesn't include a sound demo, but maybe I can film one tomorrow.

WOW. this sounds exactly like something I was trying to piece together with potential Eurorack gear all in one box!

Too bad I have a feeling that 3rd Q guess will actually be well into 1st Q 2016. I'm on board.

:hihi: :yay: :banana:

Soon as you posted the video I was like "Watch this topic for replies" click!
I was kinda looking at the Roland scatter thingy too... scatter & looper.

I know its not what the cool kids should be considering... but I gotta tell you, I got a VT-3 and its ACE on acoustic guitar!

Ha! Exactly what I was into as well, the scatter and that delay were right down my alley. But you know, there's always a soft spot for Bastl and this baby looks very promising so looking forward to getting it and making some weird sounds ...

Here is a little sound preview of the crazier side of the Thyme. You can also get less crazy stuff like regular delays out of it too, of course ;) It's still being developed, so the sound will probably change until release.

You turned the panning to the left and all sound moved to the right. I just realized I have my computer monitors panned backwards :lol:

So, like, whatever happened to this project? It's almost a year later and nothing. :hmm:

I was wondering the same thing recently and asked them. Apparently it's "not cancelled", so I guess time will tell. Of course I'm hoping for a CV-controllable version too or even a Eurorack module :yay:

This almost puts me in mind of a modern take on a Boss RSD-10. I'm really looking forward to this one!

I wish this would get released! I have the money for it and there are a couple of other bits from Bastl that I would like to pick up at the same time.

I realise that I'm doing that annoying thing of giving people hope of news of a release date by replying!
