Author Hinton still in business?
Mr D
Hi folks,

I'm looking to get a Hinton SwitchMix, but their website lists it as out of stock and they don't reply to emails.

Anyone know if this product is still in production or if this company is still in business?
Joe.
He's still posting regularly on here and helping out, he hasn't disapeared.

He was here today:

Maybe an email issue of some sorts, Graham is usually very responsive.

How long did you wait for an e-mail reply? He's usually quick to answer any questions.

As far as I know, SwitchMix is not in production at the moment due to problems of sourcing proper switches / buttons. You'll have to look second hand, but don't buy it for the outrageous price at AH. PinMix and MatrixMix are in production, though.

Good luck and cheers! Guinness ftw!
Mr D
Ah, ok, i guess i'll give up on the SwitchMix for the mo.

Been emailing him quite a bit - buying a power supply. He's been super responsive. I first reached out via the support form on his website: http://hinton-instruments.co.uk/contact/index.htm . He replied very quickly.

Anyway - yeah, probably just an email issue.

Don't worry, I know how to get him here.

THE EURORACK POWER STANDARD IS WELL THOUGHT OUT AND SHOULD BE USED USED AS A TEMPLATE IN ALL ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT.

And ground is a 0V voltage reference, right?

Ha ha! applause

The best way to solve a ground loop is to remove the 3rd prong from all your power plugs.

No wonder nobody can summon him, you forgot to draw the sacred ritual symbols in solder paste onto the floor!!

... I imagine that would look like an op-amp schematic with the inverting and non-inverting input deliberately switched around. razz

Why bother with the busboards - just use daisy-chained flying busboard ribbon cables, MUCH EASIER to get everything hooked up...

ordered my 6th PSU with him last week, been emailing back and forth, yes he's still very much in business! It's peanut butter jelly time!

Might be nice if the OP updated the subject of this thread to be less inflammatory given the answer is quite clear (yes, Hinton is open). It’s not good for business when potential customers think you’re out of business.
Gyroscope
OP didn't know that a one week response time is about right for eurorack manufacturers. Why this is acceptable is beyond me though seriously, i just don't get it

What is your response time to customers of your business that you run on your own?
Gyroscope
I run a small business since 2010 (translation services). Response time is about 5 minutes, never more than an hour during business hours. Another thing, we never missed one deadline in those eight years. Eurorack is booming though so certain things like punctuality and good customer service are not really important.

p.s.: this is not directed towards Hinton.
