FoH Delay...lay...lay..lay..ay...ay...y...???

Post by Exuviae » Mon Aug 24, 2009 5:50 pm

After doing a handful of recent and unrelated searches through the forum here, I kept stumbling across the mention of an upcoming FoH Delay/Echo module in a compact form (like the PB) and I saw it referenced more than once.

Insight?

I'm sure most of us would :love: something like this!

flight just twittered about it today.

"Working on ths delay, damn these things are fun!"

At least I assume that is in reference to a new module. Sounds interesting.

Yeah....he says one day soon...soon...soon...soon.............
Such is the curse of awesome one man operations.
I will buy 2 as soon as they are available.
I'm hoping for cheap digital delays

Okay, okay: Yep, I'm working on the first FoH delay module right now. Work begins on the prototype tomorrow. It is a basic(-ish) digital delay - I forced myself to stamp out the feature creep - so it won't be very spendy. I won't have an idea on the price until the design is finalized, however.

Heh, what I was having fun with when I posted about it, was that you can turn the speed down so low that it just completely glitches out and starts making random crazy noises. Then you tweak the refeed control and it starts making noise-drum rhythm patterns that vary enough to stay interesting (pretty damn cool-sounding actually, I was rocking out for a bit... :P ). I was also playing with the CV inputs to get some other interesting sounds out of it. :mrgreen:

gagging for it is the term I would use!

+1 to killing feature creep. I have a $30 digi delay pedal which has a haxxored CV input & even with basically 0 options it is the shit! Can't wait to get my grubby mits on a proper delay... or 3!

Fucking sweet. Glad I asked!

Will this be in both Frac and Euro format like the others?

Well, here's where I have to drop the bomb - I can't do frac anymore. :cry:

The fracs have hardly sold at all. AH still has a decent stock of r.2.3 Plague Bearers, and almost all of the first batch of frac Choices - seriously, about a month ago he said he had sold two, so maybe 2-3 more have gone. I also have about $400 worth of frac panels (both PB and CH) sitting on my shelf collecting dust. I'd love to offer them, but nobody's buying and the stores don't want to carry them anymore.

I understand though. Are you going to at least offer kits for us to build? :hail:

Fuck, another one bites the dust. I will definitely be buying both PB v2.3 and Choices in Frac, once I have money to blow on modules again. I really would like the delay in Frac, so if you can offer barebones DIY kits, we'll just Frac our own (or put 'em in Serge panels with ...gasp... banana jacks!)

argh! that sucks for you flight, especially being stuck with those panels! fukkin fraccers! stop DIYing... oh wait :oops: it seems the total lack of options in frac has resulted in users forgetting how to buy retail!

please do extend the barebones concept tho! Its such a great option!

Try and stop me!

As long as I am running this show, the kits will be available. Flat out. They are there for several reasons: 1) We're in tough times financially - *I* can't afford to buy modules, but this scene has real value and I want it to keep growing no matter what society does to itself. 2) To widen the field, make modulars easier to understand for the uninitiated ('cause the damn things are intimidating when your'e first trying to understand them). 3) Doing my part to further the study and creation of sound.

I don't have much time these days to update my website as much as it needs, so if you don't see a Barebones kit for a module, ask me about it; Like with the Choices. I do offer a Barebones, I just haven't had time to make a page for it. *sigh*

Sorry to hear.

But to make a rough transition back on topic, this delay is going to be sweet!

flight, anymore teases / leaks as to what this machine will include post feature creep eradication... sounds like maybe multiple CV & very slow clocking is possible... please dangle that carrot a little closer :D

Now this is the type of stuff that gets me inspired! Hope you keep these "glitches" as "features" in the final design :tu:

I am wondering, since delays are like potato chips... especially if you are using them in unconventional ways... do you plan on making double or quad delay units/modules? Daisy chaining delays are way too much fun for mutilating and glitching up sounds :cloud:
