Hi Jim,

thanks for the prompt answer ! I am very much ok with getting the case.
Looking forward to it.

1250 USD and includes case. A TE-2 purchase will always include the case and that has always been the plan.. to make it stand-alone for everyone as its primary life but also allow for the physical segments to go full eurorack integration both ways. The case also brings a few nice accessory (but non-crucial) features that we want everyone to have (to be further illustrated on the site in near future with some overall site updates), and also gave us complete control over the "ideal" power and EMF scenario that we've created for it. It helps us feel secure that we're shipping the best total performing tape machine we can ship if we provide the enclosure and power for it, and also it allows us to offer you the exact ergonomic and visual involvement that we want you to have with it. We made a good quality case, so this overall commitment to shipping the case with it did require that we absorbed some cost for each TE-2 sale and we wanted to do it anyways in order to ship out the best total performing product we could make.

maybe I missed something but some points are not clear to me:

Quote:
FSW- jack... custom cable connets to external footswitch (included) and contains Tap Tempo, True Bypass, and Step advance. The Step Advance feaure will be convenient for cueing up 8 different settings for songs via footswitch. It may also be used for live switching between steps for musical purposes.

A) in the latest version of the graphic rendering that can be seen on the official website the footswitch connection in the main panel is no longer present. Is this connection ( and footswitch ) still present as per the original project? and where is it now? maybe in the back panel?

B) it seems to me that the aspect of 1V/oct tracking has never been discussed:
will it be possible to accurately track the filter in self-oscillation with the 1V/oct standard? but above all will it be possible to track the speed of the tape with the 1V/oct standard so that you can use the TE-2 as a real mellotron or cassette-synth ( like Crudlabs-Crudman for example )?

Quote:
Each of the three sets also contains a CV output jack that directly represents the sets activity, to be connected to external devices.

C) when using the jack outputs of the various sets how do you adjust the CV value of the first step when using an 8-step sequence (since there are only sliders for 7 steps)?

thanks in advance, Jim!

Howdy!

The site info will receive a lump of an update soon that will include info relating to connectivity questions, but to very briefly answer.. nothing you've mentioned has been chopped! Thanks for the patience with info/spec updates.

Filter tracking 1V/oct, YES, and it is temperature stabilized. In fact the HPF is also temperature stabilized but that won't be as musically relevant since it's not a resonance situation. But having both be stable filters is nice overall for various musical application reasons and consistency of use.

The 7 sets of sliders are steps #2 through #8. The main pots are all considered #1 and are labeled such with its own LED. When you engage one of the White/Grey/Black sets up top and select a parameter, you can consider #2 through #8 to be working. #1 always works, and when you are "in" #1 by pressing the button or by being there during the cycle. Also, when turning on the machine you are automatically sitting still in #1. To more specifically demonstrate an answer to your question... if you're running the cycle full 1-8, and it's rotating around and around, each time it hits #1 your main knob for that parameter is what controls the parameter and also determines the CV out of the set output at that #1 moment in time.

Controlling tape speed at a 1V/oct standard is at this moment a brand new request, but is a good request and so is still something to think about over here in this late stage. There are lots of ways that the TE-2 is already a cassette synthesizer, the simple fundamental factor being the control over tape speed playback via CV and/or on board controls. A straight forward use is to have 8 different TIME settings in place with your TIME knob and #2-#8 sliders, then press each small 1-8 button and have your exact pitch recalled. This type of hardware engagement does make for much more finer tuning of preset pitches as opposed to just 1V/oct, since one can slightly turn the knob this way or that and have it be just off pitch if desired and so thus make other scales besides "well tempered." But we're going to process the 1V/oct request and see what is possible now or in the future.
zauker
Great news Jim! Thank you so much for your prompt reply ( as usual )! I REALLY REALLY REALLY hope you can find a way to track the tape with the 1V/oct standard... I think it's the last missing feature from this extraordinary dream machine (among all the other wonderful capabilities and potential that TE-2 already has).
MotoModular
Happy Friday,

Gonna be a little short as the activity level is very high today.

So i'll focus on one attribute that has barely been revealed, the footswitch...

The footswitch is a small low profile angled/sloped piece that sits separately from the unit and is connected via a "special" TRRS type cable going to the back of the TE-2. It has three stomps and three "hand-buttons." In other words, each function has a pair of switches.. a stomp and a button. The functions are Bypass, Tap, and Step. Step is the method of remote "cueing" the next step in line that's active. So if you're sitting in step 2, hitting/pressing the button will bring you to step 3 and you can keep stepping along until you get to the one you want. This'll be nice for live situations recalling some settings by way of Sets/faders. It will also end up being musically something to play since it obviously has a musical performance in and of itself if you have sound going through it.

The stomps are stomps. The buttons are buttons. They are vertical pairs. So there is a row of stomps and a row of buttons. The one that's above the other does the same thing. So, which is towards the front and which is towards the back?....

The device has end ears that angle it up. The end angles that hold the device can be hand unscrewed by way of simple external screws and the inner unit itself can be rotated 180 degrees so that it is now giving you either your stomps in front or your buttons in front, whichever you prefer or need for your situation. The artwork is rotationally symmetrical so that they appear the same no matter which way you mount things. Lastly, the cable connection is underneath, and fits under the height that the little unit sits above the table/ground at. This way you're not ending up with a "rear" cable connection in front if you rotate the unit one way or the other.

The point of this is to give everyone a handy external switch unit that can be comfortable to use in either a guitar/floor situation or a tabletop production situation. Having just stomps is not so nice for tabletop, and having just buttons is not usable for guitaring contexts. So we're giving you both so that everyone can use this thing. And if you want buttons, having stomps in front of them is awkward. And if you want stomps, having buttons in front of them is dangerous to the little buttons not comfortable with the idea of military boots. Having this unit be angled is going to prove to be a nice pairing with the main unit and its own angling abilities and also give you some better ergonomic access.

Have a great weekend!

Wait a tick. This is included in the price of the TE-2? I don't recall any details of this at all. If included, that's absolutely amazing. I won't even be upset if it's not included and has to be purchased separately, considering the featureset.

The mono mellotron via CV idea just pushed this up in my interest list. Would be very cool if you could make it happen.

Just to clarify wording here for everyone.. the TE-2 is already a mono mellotron via CV. Hook up any external CV to the TIME jack and you have control over your pitch playing back from tape.

The request is for one step further, which is allowing for a standardized CV keyboard output of 1V/Oct to accurately create standard musical 12-note octaves.

And to humbly refer to my previous reply.. you may use the 1-8 buttons as 8 pre-tuned pitches and use the TE-2 as a mono mellotron that way and also have more control over ultra fine tuning of pitch, i.e. you can have one note be just slightly this way or that, which can be seen as a musical advantage over having just standard 12-tone octaves. Or you can use this arrangement correctively speaking too, since you may have instances pre recorded on tape that may or may not perform how you currently desire. You could micro-compensate for pre recorded pitch issues wether they are artistic preferences or scientific issues. Having 8 fine tunable pitches at your physical disposal on a compact "keyboard" should prove to be quite a handy and immediately usable instrument without having to connect anything. Pitch bends are just as easy as well, or even alterations of pitch pre sets, since you have the settings for 1 through 8 to adjust while playing.

But yes, it is fully understood, the advantage of also being able to connect a keyboard and have all of your 12-tone octaves, which is why we are taking a look even at this very tail end of things here.

At this time we are crunching a lot of final numbers from manufacturing perspectives and are hesitant to make many announcements about much of anything in regards to the prices of small little accessory thingies that cropped up over the course of the TE-2 design phases. However, what we are going to very likely do, and which is our aim right now, is include the footswitch and one other small accessory with the TE-2, along with the wood enclosure as well, as a bit of a thank you to everyone who has pre ordered during this whole initial TE-2 phase. This definitely will not include the wood lid to the enclosure though. Anyways, we think that's what's going to happen. You all have been patient as heck and deserve the total performance package as a reward for pre ordering. So it's likely that if you order a TE-2 after things are already stocking and shipping like a normal operation, there will be extra optional costs for accessories. Overall we still have to be careful about publicly committing to absorb too many expenses, but since someone asked we want to at least give an answer to the status of that. Also, to again reiterate, the case will always be included with a TE-2. It will also be for sale separately as a standard eurorack enclosure. This coming friday will include some performance features about the enclosure that have not yet been revealed.
MotoModular
Hello and Happy Friday in Australia and Japan and New Zealand and other places that are pretty cool too!

Here is some physical and performance information about the enclosure for the TE-2. This list is meant to exhibit functionally as the TE-2 case and also a standard eurorack case for other modules.

The digital render images on the website is actually a bit outdated in terms of the small darkish square markings you see on sides. They're gone in real life.

In no particular order...

Z axis internal clearance module "Depth" : (measured from under the bottom of faceplate): 41.119 MM

X axis internal clearance "Width" : 325.246 MM ( just a little more than full length to length internal module 64HP)

Y axis internal clearance "Height" : 114.506 MM

Faceplate Z axis "Width" space : 328.446 MM

Faceplate Y axis "Height" space : 131.94 MM

Method of module mounting: Vector rails with sliding nuts, with nut access slots on both ends of wood case for both rails. Slots are same exact size as vector rail guides so that the nut does not get caught up when inserting. A set of nuts will be included with each case that is sold separately from the TE-2, and extra nuts minus the number used for the TE-2 module will be included with each TE-2 so that you have some nuts for 3rd party modules. At this time it is undetermined how many the total should be, but included with the TE-2/case will also be a matching number of screws to go with the square nuts.

The wood enclosure has 4 hand-unscrewable low profile round rubber feet. The rubber material is soft enough to grip well on the surface so that the unit does not easily move/skid when in use. With the feet off and the unit not mounted in the set of end stands, the case can be set flat on the table for around a 4-5 mm lower of height if desired. The end pieces of wood will still keep the core of case hovering just a bit up from the ground/table, since the wood ends do have a couple mm of depth so they then act as "feet" and the whole thing is not resting on its own bottom panel.

The unit can be mounted to stainless steel end stands via its end flange nuts and tilted to two ranges of infinitely adjustable angles depending on which of the two mount holes are used in end stands. First range (mount hole 1) is 0 degrees to 40 degrees, and this mount hole is a little lower than the other. This mount position allows for a lower profile with shallower angle positioning. The second range (mount hole 2) is 0 degrees to a full front facing 90 degrees and even more (actually a full rotation if no cables are connected anywhere). This mount point is a little higher on the stand than the other mount hole and is designed for steeper angles. In both mounting configurations, the tippy top of the end stands never goes vertically above the unit/faceplate itself no matter how you have it rotated, so the end stands are always down out of eyesight if one is peering down the flush length of the modular faceplate setup/TE-2.

The adjustment of angle is made by partially unwinding the pressure nuts that have flip-open finger grasps that close back over the pressure nut when you finish and fold them back, but the pressure nuts also have a slot for a rather beefy flat head screw driver and also a hex hole for a 5/32" or 4MM allen wrench so both are easy to find in any country. Just loosen both ends some, rotate to desired angle, tighten one end by hand and then tighten the other end by hand. If you want, you can super tighten your unit with either of those tools just mentioned. But tension built from just the hand turn is enough to keep any system stable during use. Tool tightening is for peace of mind. The positioning of the mount point in relation to overall unit is designed to be rather centered in the total weight including modules so that rotation is easy and balanced. Also, the tension created by tool tightening does not send stress or tension to the case itself. It is isolated.

In the middle of the rear sloped under-panel is a wide shallow gap that is occupied by a custom 3d printed ABS heavy duty reinforced/"sealed" set of connections/hardware for the powered enclosure. (this is also not accurately portrayed on website since we just tossed together a rear panel filler-mockup for that) Power is a standard DC power jack. The other 6 items are...

- Footswitch jack. This jack receives a 3.5mm TRRS cable from the footswitch.

- Passive expression pedal input jack. This is a "3.5mm" 1/8" jack so will need an adapter from your 1/4" "6.35mm" cable.

- Active +5 / -5 expression pedal output jack. This is a control voltage that results from the above passive expression pedal input. Use this jack to patch a standard modular cable up and over and into the TE-2 or your housed modules and have yourself a foot control for modular synth by buying a cheap passive pedal on ebay. Ignore the TE-2 and/or your housed modules and use it to patch a long cable over to your other modular stuff if you want.

- Headphone output jack 1/8" "3.5mm". This is a dedicated headphone jack for the powered enclosure. The TE-2 has an internal connection to this, but next to this jack there is also a...

- Aux headphone input jack 1/8" "3.5mm." Designed to receive a modular-level unbalanced audio signal and is sent equally to the headphone output jack. This can be thought of in a few different ways... One, for when housing third party modules, you can patch your final output signal back to the aux input jack and have a headphone output for your enclosed rig. Two, you can have the TE-2 connected but also patch in an external signal to combine a signal into the TE-2 headphone output if you like. Three, you can ignore what equipment is installed in this enclosure and use this as a headphone output for other modular equipment nearby if you just want a simple good quality headphone output without needing a whole module for it.

- Headphone lvl knob.


With the unit not mounted to the end stands, any standard guitar strap can go over the end nuts on the main case and securely stay attached (much more securely than guitars, which are strangely not designed to be snug). This allows you to carry the case on a strap. If you are a daredevil you can do this without a lid on the case. If you buy the optional wood lid that matches the case, you can then take it on the road with plenty of security. Either way, the end nut mounts built into the ends of the case are very securely fixed to the case. If you throw your case off the empire state building and a nearby I-beam catches it by the strap, i'm not sure what will break first. The stitching of the strap? Or maybe it would just flip and fling itself somewhere else a still in tact missile and redirect to annihilate a different person now.

We are going with a strong and beautiful wood that is hand oiled. At this time, Teak is the likely candidate. We have one other wood we are evaluating that could potentially beat it, but Teak is wonderful so far. It was the original choice, and we tested numerous woods and oils, only to come back to the first experiment.

Hiya - haven't checked this thread in a while - everything sounding great! Just checking that what I'm reading in your quote above is what you meant. That is, I use microtonal scales quite a lot, and the 1V/Oct standard has nothing to do with the type of scale that comes out. Using a quantizer capable of outputting the correct voltages for a pre-programmed scale of any sort, in fact, _relies_ on the 1V/Oct standard, otherwise it wouldn't work. As long as the correct voltage comes into a 1V/Oct oscillator/sound source, then that precise note will play.

OK, just checking if I'm misunderstanding your meaning or if there is a disconnect here. Thanks so much for all your work and dedication! w00t

Edit: I do this with a MIDI keyboard into a quantizer (Tubbutec uTune) or with CV coming from a sequencer into a quantizer. I do have a CV keyboard, but it's actually easier to use a MIDI keyboard (for playing microtonally) into the quantizer that then outputs CV notes with the precise voltages for microtonal notes into a 1V/Oct oscillator...or the TE-2 perhaps... cool

Hey SlyFrank, The quote you pulled is not referring to external CV or any external control, it is referring to the internal 1-8 hardware "sets" settings where you can press a button and have a pitch perfectly recallable and finely tunable with the potentiometers on board. You can go through and pre locate the exact finely tuned pitch you want for all 8 "steps/buttons" and have them at your playable hand as 8 musical notes via finger buttons. Think of it like "parameter locks." Interestingly, but unrelated to this, the relevant voltages (not scaled) will pop out of the jack up top that is set to TIME. You could have those voltages do other things elsewhere that change per pitch you are "playing" by hand with the 1-8 buttons.

This is all to do with hardware playing the machine. Naturally, there is also CV control of the pitch too...

We're working on implementing scaling. No announcements or any mentions of this possible feature will show up anywhere any time soon, and may pop up towards the end if at all. This feature was just requested a few posts ago.

Hi Jim - yeah, the 1-8 hardware "sets" sounds awesome. Your reply makes me think of even more interesting options! I did understand that part of your discussion. I was just curious as to why you mention the limitation of being limited to well-tempered scales. I don't understand why that limitation would exist in any scenario, whether in the 1-8 "sets" or the CV in.

Anyway, it's not that important - I'm probably misunderstanding you, and it'll all sort itself out in the end. This is going to be sweet Guinness ftw!

Hey all,
Happy Friday!!!!
I need to hop back on here tomorrow some time instead of today. Big day and now some family things taking over for the eve.
cheers talk soon

MotoModular
Happy Father's Day if you are in the USA.

Thanks for the patience.

As for our update this week, multiple things are in the midst of being physically made right now. Stainless steel end stands ready for end user handling, faceplates, custom rails, and 2nd updated wood enclosure (we decided to hop right on making changes and not show a pic of 1st version that was built yet, which will come later probably).

The buyers heard this already in a recent update but currently we are hammering out four complete faceplates for art/coat/color/process/durablity checks and pretty soon we'll get to confirm in person if we want to keep the old school green/red icon colors for Record(echo) and Playback, or just have them be greyscale so as to preserve your full color palette control.

WMD has been on board with us for some time now, and is now working on this hardware stuff in addition to the PCB stuff. Yes there have been multiple faceplate cuts and tests way prior to this, but this is from what is becoming our new anchor of builds and our file is locked.

Anticipation is at a high level here as we wait a short time and tackle other things.

Below is a simple phone video from the folks at WMD cutting faceplates prior to coating and printing.

I'll leave it at this for now. Thanks everyone. We're hoping to have some enjoyable things to show soon.

You're welcome! I thank you for all of the patience during this.

We're refraining from putting banana voltage info stuff out into the ether just yet.
But to answer about cost/ordering, it is something that we've fiscally put off until time for shipment that we'll balance out with banana buyers individually. This means we will also be asking for information from you soon about which you want, via the same kind of web form submission set up on the Buyers page regarding faceplate color.
The balancing has to do with production and parts. The assembly for non banana will be different than for banana. The parts are different too. In the end we're talking about a pretty small extra cost for the end user. We have all the hardware cost differences and implementation itself in place but the larger production run difference is the key factor in cost here, so we're also holding off on putting numbers out until we're settled with the scope. But rest assured, if you're a pre-ordering individual you will receive your official opportunity to choose banana, soon.

Hi Jim, Reading about these extras like the button/foot-switch that you are including is great gesture. As I sit here day dreaming on how I plan to fit the TE-2 with my guitar, my studio, my LIFE, I come to a quandary…

How does one electronically control of the sequence of steps remotely? With your remote could one go both directions with steps or only forward? Might someone with rudimentary skills (thats me) be able to build a small controller to trigger steps say forward and back or even discrete buttons for each step? (i.e. stomp to turn on step 2, then stomp to switch to step 6)

... Reaction!

Hello it's Friday!

We've got full coated and printed test plates on the way from the factory arriving over the weekend or monday. In time for the buyers update who will get the first look. We nixed colors of transport button icons for the sake of consistent and tailorable aesthetic. Might arrive tomorrow. We'll be having a look specifically at the powder coat characteristics in person and the print aesthetics and possible print adjustments on our end regarding design shifts. We're using this as a very quick test of these factors, and we already have a second pair of plates que'd up ready for a similar set of prints tests with changes.

We have three new wood enclosures, lids, and footswitch end stands soon arriving. Two in Teak and one in a different wood that the wood supplier was interested in us seeing as an alternative on personal recommendation as a possible aesthetic. We're smitten with Teak but are open to seeing something beat it still.

We just yesterday picked up the prototype two pairs of steel end stands from a local full steel operation. They're slim, but 1/8" and very strong. Stainless. Once we have the enclosure in hand assembled, it'll be fun to show what we've been talking about regarding the mounting / rotational capabilities of this system.

We're just about locked in with pricing in all regards, referring to the small bits floating around the situation here. The foot switch, the lid for case, the end stands, the case itself, and power. We've been hacking at this for a long time and it seems we have settled into the right balance of operations to get this stuff made. I hope to be posting pricing of things soon. But we're still going to give it a few weeks until posting probably.

Hi Jim, Reading about these extras like the button/foot-switch that you are including is great gesture. As I sit here day dreaming on how I plan to fit the TE-2 with my guitar, my studio, my LIFE, I come to a quandary…

How does one electronically control of the sequence of steps remotely? With your remote could one go both directions with steps or only forward? Might someone with rudimentary skills (thats me) be able to build a small controller to trigger steps say forward and back or even discrete buttons for each step? (i.e. stomp to turn on step 2, then stomp to switch to step 6)

... Reaction!


From the beginning i made sure to include a set of 8 electronic points on the PCB's that correlate to the small buttons. [ You have DSC here to largely thank for pushing things like this ] In the future you'll be seeing mentions of taking advantage of this, both in ways you might want to yourself and in ways we offer to you.

And thank you for your kind words of enthusiasm smile

Would be awesome to hear an Instagram demo of the mellotron-like usage you´re describing (without filters or delay) ;-)
