Any more recent/newer demos available?

I could see this combining with clouds or morphagene quite nicely.

It looks like it can simultaneously record material into the buffer and playback granular processed material, so yes to real-time processing.

These sound great, but to me they are the ugliest looking modules I've seen, it wouldn't stop me from buying them, but I do keep forgetting about them. They just look like cheap knock-offs of something TO ME. I know it doesn't matter what they look like, but it is easy to not want these when the look like this.

Conversely, I think Instruo modules are some of the nicest looking modules available. They're not just a panel with knobs and jack throw at them, nor are they modules with unnecessary splashy graphics on.

I'm going to wait for my local (30 miles away) shop to get the Arbhar and the Lúbadh in and see if we can work out a deal for the two.

they are about excess, Gold everything. The placement of jacks is great, ala Buchla, 200e, but that even had downsides. too dense is hard to tweaK/ USE.

How do you feel about Folktek modules? :)

Does anyone know whether it's possible to save the contents of the buffers? Jason of Instruo mentions a memory dump to a USB port in the Superbooth interview, but there's no mention of saving/loading in the quick start guide.

I don't own any Instruo modules atm (i will defo rectify this soon) but i just wanted to say i think design-wise they are just beautiful!

Obviously id never buy a module purely on look alone, but i'd never NOT buy one just because of how it looked!

The system Jason had at Superbooth 19 (see Divkid vid) is nothing short of stunning to me - including the blanks! I actually revisited that video the other day and thought about dropping a line to Jason somewhere just to commend him on the Instruo aesthetic. So i guess i'll do that here now;

Jason - I think your modules are f***ing gorgeous mate!

I think it will be a very interesting module. I have the cs-L and its one of my favorite oscillators.

What's really cool about the 2hp expander for the Arbhar is that it looks as though you will not have to purchase it separately. It notes that its included with the main module. Much praise for that. Now if the other mfgs can start including their expander modules at no additional cost...that would be great.

no offense to Instruo at all but at that price point the expander should not be a separate purchase IMO

I can't stand the Folktek designs; they actually give me a bit of a visceral response, I'm not sure how to explain it. I get the same reaction with other kinds of patterns sometimes. As for Instruo, I like the gold on black, especially with the other colors. But I think there is a bit too much gold on several of them, where almost everything is outlined in gold. The SCION which I own is much better balanced. Really looking forward to the arbhar.

Apparently preorders might ship this Friday or early next week. But that is just an estimate from the retailer I preordered at.

My question, too.
I don’t care about exporting. Just want some continuity from day to day.
I guess we’ll have to wait to find out :whistle:

I've been holding off on buying a Morphagene (which has unique features & SD card obviously so not a perfectly direct competitor) because the Arbhar (and Lubadh) seem to be much more intuitive to use... looking forward to these getting out into the wild.

So I preordered mine from Perfect Circuit a few weeks ago. Just called in to see the estimated ship date, they're saying around Christmas. Hope yours arrives sooner than that!!!

Shit, dare I cancel my preorder out of impatience? Please report back if you nab one! I would love to hear thoughts from general users.
