If blinky lights are your bag, fine. Get out your wallet, dig deep, and consume.
It would be great if you could express your opinion without the condescending attitude toward those of us that are interested in this product. C'mon, man.

Aren't plasma globes known for causing pretty dire RF interference? Any chance this will cause bleed in adjacent modules?

That’s a good question. My son has one. I’ll set it next to my rack and see what happens. And for good measure, I’ll listen with my EM mic too

I have the pedal version and it´s near to a lot of other pedals and semi-modular analog synths, even close to one of my euro cabinets and I don´t noticed any kind of interference

a module version could be different though, but I think the thing is shielded to avoid this issues.

I kinda wish the video demos of it had it with a wider variety of synths. It's a little too aggressive and in your face in the IG demo they posted.

Not sure about sound, but it certainly LOOKS awesome.

I think it sounds great and different from the other distortions I have (and I have a lot). Really excited about the trigger able octave and sub octave switches, too. I can see a LOT of fun with that.

Full tilt sounds difficult to tame but I reckon half cocked it's going to be great with CV of course. To the poster saying about the sticking to consonant intervals when using the guitar version, that pretty much sums up every hardcore fuzz pedal I've ever tried and I've worked in a guitar shop for 23 years and personally know a few makers around here. YMMV of course but from my point of view different = good. :yay:

All joking aside, that could - if controlled (contained) - be an interesting random source...

Is the sound actually going through the plasma or is just blinking from the input signal?

I still hav to dig through the garage to find the thing, but I think using an EM mic (routed into envelope follower) and then gradually bringing the bolt closer to the mic could be great for filter control and look freaking awesome.

I'm def gonna get this, it's utter filth! I might be being overly influenced by the excellent visuals but it sounds like electricity to me.
