Yeah that is a pretty sweet deal and the free shipping is icing on the cake. I'm a bit bummed though since I am almost broke and my cards are all maxed currently. Maybe I can convince a friend to put my order on his card. (yeah...fat chance) :lol: I'll have to start looking around the house for stuff to sell for quick cash. (man, I sound like a crackhead, but my modular addiction is killing my wallet)

Shit I just called and Andrew said that its only for the eurorack modules but free shipping on everything(which is what i originally thought)
I wonder if they will let me cancel my order so i can just order direct from blacet so i can get red knobs instead of ugly blue ones :lol:

yeah, no sales tax on anything (because im in cali) means $70 saved for me.
i know, small consolation but blacet is in cali too, so tax saved is still money saved.

After talking to Chuck, he told me that I misunderstood the sale and that it was only on Euro modules and accessories. :cry: I was just going to update this thread and let you guys know, but it looks like zerosum beat me to it. Oh, well. Free shipping is still cool. AH deserves the business, they kick ass.

hey, thanks for the heads up, i'm late to the party, just got in from vegas, lotsa delays home :(

yeah i got the email about this from AH sometime yesterday, it arrived in the big 'plane landing' batch i always get on my phone after a long flight (i literally get between 6-10 emails AN HOUR most every day...)

i did have the impression that it was eurorack stuff only... hehe then i started reading this thread just now, and thought, SWEET! it's for everything, i'm gonna get a frac-ensteiner

then i read more and it's only eurorack :oops:

sweet deal though for you doepfer heads 8) especially in cali

and yeah, everyone seems to be in consensus, and i agree - spend money at AH. that place rocks. shawn rocks. i haven't ever dealt with chuck, but i am extremely confident that he rocks just as much. i love that shop and those guys

Well, couldn't help myself. Took advantage of the sale to pick up my 2nd Stonz. Thus completing my set of two of every Blacet module. :shock: Currently have 49 individual Blacet modules.

I know, I can't wait for it to arrive. I'll be away on vacation, but it will be a wonderful surprise for when I return.

I'll be making demo videos as well of course, so everyone can enjoy it at least a little bit ;-)

my goal with the Blacet stuff - and I'm almost there now, finally...

Is to have two seperate and identical towers of Blacet modules. If I want to patch them as a single large system, I can. If I want to treat them as two seperate systems, I can. Some friends are really looking forward to me breaking the modules into two towers so we can have "patching contests", each working with an identical set of modules.

Just need to pick up a couple more units, and then EACH of the two towers will consist of -

2 VCOs
2 EGs
2 Mixer/Pros
2 Dual Linear VCAs
2 LFOs
4 Multi/Attens
1 of everything else Blacet (incl. Time Machine & Dark Star)
1 Frequency Divider Expander
1 MiniWave Expander full o' ROMs

This config will let me have 2-voice polyphony using ANY set of single modules per voice. Or I can have up to 4-voice polyphony in a simple VCO-VCF-VCA type setup, however with the sacrifice that two of the voices will have Final Filtre's and two of the voices will have Filthy Filters. I'm willing to accept this small sacrifice (you can get the filters to sound very close to each other....) in favour of financial sanity and not taking up ALL the space I have available....

Finally, once I hit this goal, I'll buy another pair of Blacet VCOs and EG1's, so that each 'standalone tower' will be a 3 VCO/3EG system, for 6 overall VCOs. then I will be DONE with Blacet, unless of course something else is released, in which case I'll simply buy two immediately to keep the system(s) up to date.

The other reason I'm doing this is investment. I figure a Blacet system with every single module ever, plus a good complement for functionality (ie. 3 VCO's, 3 EG's, 2 LFOs, etc.), will probably be worth a hell of a lot of money come 20 years from now or so.

So I'm doubling the whole thing. That way, if I'm every really really pressed to sell, it will be easy enough to just sell off one of the towers, and still be able to keep a 'full' Blacet system with at least one of everything.

Anyway, that's the Blacet plan. And it's finally about 95% done. I figure I need about 6 more modules to fully complete this vision. I'll be kind of sad to not be bringing Blacet business on a roughly monthly basis anymore, but it'll be nice to move onto Wiard 300 (now that I'm finished acquiring Metasonix as well, it's the only thing left!), and hopefully Blacet will release some more designs.

Oh yeah, nice coincidence, but the 'single tower' Blacet system I've described fits just perfectly into one of the 6-frac towers that I've been using to house my system. So ultimately I'll have three of these towers, two identical Blacet ones, and a third Wiard/Bananalogue/MOTM one. I've actually got two completely full at the moment, and two 'loose' frac-racks that are holding some modules. Really need to get my third rolling rack tower to put these in.

So I sold my Symetrix CL-100,a Behringer MDX 2100(the only behringer product I've ever owned and it was when i was just getting into recording) and my Marshall Jackhammer so I have $138 to get one last module from AH before the sale ends tomorrow....
hmmm.........
A micro LFO sure would be nice to sit next to the psycho....
Or I could get a dual lin VCA......

Binary zone looks really fun, if I spend a little bit more.....

aaahahahhahah I have to pick a module :lol:
If I had a little more I would just go for the VCO and get that out of the way :lol:

I ordered it 8)

I dont get paid untill next friday and I have to ship a few things out,
so Im pretty damn close to broke :shock:
However, The Binary Zone just makes sense, I ordered a Miniwave and
the Binary Zone will sit nicely next to it, They are a pair, destined to be together.
Im looking forward to using it with the quantizer in the miniwave 8)
