I found these by Nero Bellum. Quiet convincing, I must say! Not shure if it's ok to post links to FB here, don't want to trick anyone to go there... (don't have an account there myself...)





Or on Instagram...

So do I, it doesn’t matter.
It's all good! We don't have to convince each other, a respectful exchange of views can always be inspiring though :tu:

I just felt I should speak in favour of the Endorphin.es. I still can't find evidence for "vulgar marketing", so I plead not guilty.

Indeed, he should take that t-shirt he's wearing in that Superbooth 2016 video (postet earlier in this thread), off :sad: That's really a bit inappropriate, I must admit. Who came up with such an idea? Anyhow, that doesn't go with their usual style.

I think you haven’t seen John Water’s Hairspray in which she plays the part of the villain? I tried to embed a video but it wouldn’t play - all the better if you haven’t seen it, just do it.

I have seen it, but it's a long time ago. Very cool, very cute movie... What you posted must be a promo shot, because she doesn't look that gorgeous in the movie itself after her wig has been taking off. Must watch more J. Waters movies, thanks for reminding me...

And because Divine is also in the movie... I think, I'm going to make a cover version of "Shoot your shot" using the BLCK_NOIR... and perhaps the Metasonix S1K :mrgreen:

Don't know how to embed movies, so please watch it here:

To embed movies you click the video button, paste the link, remove the s from https: and click the video button one more time.

Like so:

Why do they call their company endorphin.es? For a long time I assumed they were located in Spain.

Originally they are from Vienna, Austria, I believe. But they seem to operate their business from Barcelona.

Looks and sounds great. Until I have the cash for the Erica drum system this’ll do nicely.

Quick insert. I was offended by that T-shirt in 2016, then realized my Cannibal Corpse “Worm Infested” & my old “F#ck me Jesus” metal shirt were a bit more offensive, so what does it matter?

As for the lady posing partly naked, if she’s enjoying herself & is not being forcibly made to do it it’s really nonce of you business yeah? Personally I think her posts online show she is a highly intelligent individual capable of making sound decisions, and she is rather attractive. As my wife said when looking at the Endorphins said “if you’ve got it flaunt it”.

I’ve no interest in any of their other modules, but have already put an estimated budget aside to buy this ASAP.

6 to 8 weeks delivery time, according to Schneiders... 499,- Euros... those Nero Bellum clips changed my mind about the BLCK_NOIR's sound quality in a minute! And I ordered one immediately. So who sold me something in the end? A pretty girl or a handsome guy :hihi:

My comment was greatly misunderstood (famous last words). I’m not saying she is being made to do something against her will, I’m not saying she is not in control of the image she is projecting or that she shouldn’t be doing it. I don’t see it as an insult to women.

Quite the contrary, I see it as a manipulation on me as a customer. It irks me that someone in endorphin.es thinks this will make me buy something. It’s none of my business as you say, except I feel it’s being imposed on me. Intelligent you say? Juvenile and silly.

I think my OP was very clear, and the self deprecating humor it was written in should also be evident IMO. It’s OK if others don’t share my view, I’m not trying to convince or educate anyone.

I feel like you have made your point and don’t need to defend it anymore.

Let’s talk about the marketing and other stuff in another thread.

Maybe we talk about the actual module here? :despair:

I really like the idea of the module being tuned to a darker sound, but it does not have many options for cv modulation.
"bd-tail" and "sd-tail" are kind of self-explanatory, but "thrust", "spoiler" and "flaps" are a bit more cryptic to what they modulate, and especially that big "throttle"-knob to the right. It initially looks and sounds awesome, but I worry that it could be to much of a one-trick pony. What do you think?

I think taking a look at the demo videos from the recent trade shows sheds some light on those, as well as the terminology from their other modules (for the effects). I believe they explain that those controls effect the tone/timbre of the metallic sounds in the module, from controlling and shaping the noise core for the sounds as well as having a resonant filter that does a LP<->HP control swap. The effects, too, sound like they're being really well thought out ports of the effects form their Grand Terminal.

Endorphin.es kindly sent me a pre-release unit a couple weeks ago - I've just posted a full walkthrough video with sound examples here for anyone interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPv0675RKUA
