Tokyo getting a sneak at new IME

Post by hawkfuzz » Mon Oct 02, 2017 10:21 pm



Looks like some of the potential modules got redesigned...or perhaps...these are never before seen ideas...?

Really hoping that grey panel is the Escalation Dominance. Kind looks like "mute" under the button...but it's probably not. Black panel is the mystery 4th module from the picture in the last new module thread I made.

BLAH.

Now to work out how to update the Tyme Sefari ready for when this drops - it's different to the others right?

So any guesses as to what these are? The black one on the right looks like an update to Contempt. It has pretty much the same number of jack, knobs and LEDs. Bu the one just to the left of that, I have no idea.

Escalation Dominance would be nice.

Contempt on the right.

The prototype one beside it has me baffled. It's a hybrid of a few existing modules: PHmk2, SHmk2, HDmk2/Kermit...
Plus looks like a knob in the middle of the unit is set atop a large pushbutton???

So on the Escalator Dominator page on modulargrid:
https://www.modulargrid.net/e/the-harve ... dominance-

Escalation Dominance "is expandable by Vindication, which adds six attenuate/offset controls to the CV inputs - frees up the main unit's inputs as dedicated envelope triggers (works standalone), and Contempt, which adds metering and dynamics processing to the stereo output (also works standalone)."

Homicide Censor is what I'm really wishing for.

:lol:

I am officially stumped. I'm pretty sure it's not the Vindication, nothing about it really says six attenuate/offset controls to me. I tried looking at it as a potential complete redesign of the Bionic Lester MKII, but nothing really matches up there. SO I am left thinking it is something entirely new. My guess is some kind of weird multistage envelope generator.

Wonder why IME is not going to be at Machines in Music? Third year, no attendance.

Suspicious if it is the Contempt on the right with the words next to the leds. That makes me think it’s for modes and not level indication.

Really want Escalation Dominance but unless he changed the design, the left one is four channels so I don’t think it’d be it, but he could have condensed the design.

Good eye. Also, now that you've got looking at it again, why is there an encoder? There are also two sliders. Now I am confused about this one too.

I m not sure about the one on the left being four channels. I think what ever it is, it is either one channel or two. Maybe Stereo.

That's all I know of.

The black one looks like it says 'Inputs', 'Level', and 'CV', so some kind of VCA.

And it could well say 'Outputs' below the two jacks bottom right.

So some kind of stereo output?

But what's the encoder all about I wonder?

[edit] I'm dumb, that's all been suggested and discussed for Contempt...

There's also Red Falcon, which is the updated Evin 209. Status unknown, and doubt its any of the ones in the pic above.

Damn wonder if he's abandoned any of the ventures considering sneak peaks can come way before the release and out of order of anything else. Definitely seems to be doing more now he has a team.

BLmk][ will basically fill my Harvestman case... with just a few hp for what I consider essential guest modules, well, just the Radio Music next to the Tyme Sefari!

Do all these new modules mean I am going to have to get another case :hmm:

Could Escalation Dominance now be four channels? That sliver cable looks like an audio output...

That’s what I was thinking. It wouldn’t be surprising in effort to save hp. Maybe....
