How does it differ from the little deformer? lacks sampling/recording features, and just works as live fx?

It's a smaller and cheaper version of LD, with a HI-Z input, 10 minutes of monophonic sampling, a small sequencer, a filter, distortion and most of the time and pitch effects.

Definitely a great idea, I find myself not exporing the LD enough especially on the seq department having a different sequencer as the centerpiece of my setup. But I would not do without it's effects/mangling and some of the unique sampler features! :hmm:

brilliant! was curious about some of the effects but had no use for most of the other features and had a lot of trouble justifying the pricetag of the LD to use as just an effects box...
this is what ive secretly been hoping for.
I do hope it can loop audio, although there are also other toys for that.

As someone who was considering adding a v1 deformer to process my LD2 this is very interesting indeed!

Great to hear :-)
In the second part of the video, it plays a loop of the guitar sound...

cool!
wasnt able to see/listen to the video yet. but your description sounds like its what I really wanted... was always quite jealous when reading the LD thread when people where talking/showing off about the effects... I´m starting saving today.
can you give any clue on an ETA or estimated price goal?

If this were to have all of the fx power of the ld2, I'd consider selling that to get this, since I pretty much use my ld2 as fx only. But if it's scaled down, I'll gladly keep the ld2...

~ 650 euro is a bit pricy for an effects box. Cool premise though.

It is scaled down. It only has half the DSP power of LD2, so it has no compressor, no filter bank (it does have a single filter), no DoublGran, no PitchShaper with 2 inputs, and no second effect.

It does have all the other effects though.

Will any of the old expanders work with it?

Looks like a gateway drug to me, smart move!

Having wrestled with the idea, and price of the ld2 and was seriously looking at the fusion at one point, this could be very seductive, although part of the draw was the sp1200 filter option on the others.

Been looking at all sorts of small samplers over the last few months, tbh I don't want to mangle things to Lofi crunch, which a lot of the demos seem to do. I am interested in what the output quality is like though.
I'm often disappointed at the overall sound from smaller samples, my su700 seems to be the exception, warming and seems to add a bit of width ? To sound.
If this sounds nice I will def be interested.
