Qu-bit Pulsar could be fun

Post by digidandy » Fri Jun 23, 2017 7:29 am

Video a bit short and hectic, though:



Coming very soon, it seems:

This could be really useful, although it’s a bit hard to tell, yet, what it actually does and does not.

Aside: these sorts of teaser videos annoy me because they’re a lot of work to put together and they seem pretty dubious as an effective marketing tool in a market this small. That effort would be better put toward customer education (video or otherwise).

Agree completely. Still amazed that eurorack manufacturers don't put more effort into videos that educate/demonstrate, for some of us that is all we have access to before buying (or not buying).

Qu-bit Chance, for instance ... still not one decent video out there.

Interesting they're going with a black panel.

I dont understand the point of this video other than to get clicks. this adds no new information.

Yeah, ben_hex, I don’t think that kind of thing is worth your while. Now, if you want to ring up Qu-bit and get an actual scoop, that’s a little different.

Well said. :chug:

I am interested though!

dinosaurs & mdoudoroff appreciate the feedback.

Clicks buy me nothing so that wasn't the intention.

The idea has been in my head for a while to have a sort of quick video news item type thing. I've thought about building up my site etc but everyone is engaging and the audience is on my YouTube channel. Note a lot of that audience isn't on Muffs (from what a good few tell me). So I thought when there's something to share make a quick 1 or 2 minute video to highlight a new product etc and give a little bit of my take on it and the information that's known at the time. I've got my monthly magazine for a big round up but I thought sharing videos might be good too. It's not much effort, so if it doesn't work for people it's not a lot of time wasted.

I'll see how it goes. I appreciate posting it here where information is already posted doesn't make much sense.

This decision is a perplexing to me as well since all their other modules have a simple, consistent design. Although I'm the kind of guy who wishes every module had a silver panel option for consistency purposes.

A bit off topic but fair play to Ben Hex for the video. Strikes me he's put a considerable amount of time and effort supporting the community and is more than entitled to try and work out ways to monetise this. I've learnt a load from what he's done.

Qbit kills it here... very interested.

Those short videos are called vignettes... Very useful for marketing in the social media world. Kudos to them for a wonderful presentation, and i find the video relatively informing for the short timeframe.

The black panel does look awesome...but...just cause...outer space?

For consistency's sake, it bugs the hell out of me.

That said, I'm still interested! :hihi:

Nano Rand came in both black and silver.
Kinda funny that panel color is about all there is to talk about at this point...

I can't help but also be a bit sad about the black panel. :goo:

Looking forward to learning more about this, Qu-Bit's been doing some great stuff lately and the teaser tickles me in all the right ways. :cloud:

The first demo video just surfaced:

Just demos single channel bursts. Looks smart so far, and gravity is a nifty control.

I think I saw this from Qu-Bit yesterday, and I really loved the video. Not just a bullet list of features (tho I love those videos too) but calm and deep exploration of the concepts and some techniques.

Qu-Bit has confirmed on Facebook that Pulsar will also be available with a normal aluminum panel. No more details yet.

Nice.
