I think it's because the announcement was a year ago, and this latest news is still a bit of, well, nothing.

Aside from that, it's nice as a complete little voice for the FG, but if you already have good function generators or reverb, the only thing this brings is new LPGs. Now that could interest me, BUT, The Sputnik quad lpg is to be announced this month, and that has my interest over this by far. I think if Endorphines released these sections as separate modules, then it would be more enticing for some.

Super interest. My Furthrrrr needs a buddy, but I'm not holding my breath. When I see one for sale here in the US that I can actually buy I'll be all... :w00t: . It's good to see progress is being made, but life's too short for me to be waiting around for modules...I've got laser sounds to make....pew, pew, pew :jedi: :combine: :eel:

yeah, it's the eternal delay. it's funny that were here gauging interest and comparing this unreleased module to another unreleased module (sputnik).

I am very interested in seeing how this module is when if finally materializes.

as well as the entire sputnik line.... can wait for demos. and prices...

but they will be different things entirely, what seems cool about the endorphin.es stuff is that those two modules paired might make a great smaller stage performance synth.

Sad but true. I was kinda hoping that maybe they were going to chime in with a progress report being NAMM time.

From Control 's website http://www.ctrl-mod.com/Endorphin-es-Te ... rminal.htm

The Terminal is a dual voltage controlled AD/AR/Looping envelope generator module. Its functions include using the terminal as envelopes, LFOs, and even Oscillators, with its unique precision design. The "Airplanes" are transient function generators that generate control voltages after anupcoming trigger/pulse. They each have two phases, Take Off (Rise, or Attack), and Landing (Fall, or Decay) with both unipolar (0V to +8V) as well as bi-polar (-5V to +5V) outputs, (exits), for each envelope. Trigger outputs are sent at the end of each stage, (end of Rise, end of Fall), of the envelope.

Cruise Mode allows the envelope to function with sustain as long as the gate signal is present in the input of an "Airplane." Once the gate signal is removed, the fall function is initiated.

Transient Mode gives a standard envelope with no sustain. As soon as the Rise function has completed, the Fall function is immediately initiated.

Looping Mode retriggers the envelope as soon as its single cycle is over, which allows the envelope to be constantly oscillating. In this setting, the terminal can be used as either an LFO or an oscillator depending on the frequency of the cycling.

The duration of take off, (rise), and Landing, (fall), stages are separately voltage controlled and can be controlled manually with the according knob or via incoming control voltage (theamount of CV is defined by using the knob as an attenuverter). When nothing is pluggedinto CV and key inputs, Take Off and Landing knobs vary the duration time ofcorresponding stage from 1 millisecond to 10 seconds. When no control voltage plug isinserted into appropriate CV IN jack, each attenuverting knob defines bending ofaccording curve of the certain slope: either to exponential shape (knob is in farcounterclockwise position), either to linear (knob is in centered position), either tologarithmic (knob position is far clockwise). Adjusting the linearitydoesn’t change the duration time of the according stage, as it’s usually expected inanalog envelope generators.

The Peak Detector continuously tracks the heights of both Airplanes and outputs the CVof one which is higher at the moment. There is an attenuating knob ‘relative B height’for decreasing the height of Airplane B related to the Airplane A. Triggering bothenvelopes at same time – when Airplane A is in transient and Airplane B in cruise mode– allows to obtain an approximate ADSR-alike envelope output.

In looping mode, both Airplanes work as Voltage Controlled Oscillators with separately controlled take off and Landing slope rates as well as separately controlled shapes of each slope. With the take off and landing knob in the far counterclockwise position, with no additional voltage applied, each stage has a duration of 1 ms or 500 Hz per whole cycle. The keyIn jack handles one volt per octave exponential input to control/modulate the VCO under incoming voltage. The acceptable control voltage range is positive only, from zero up to 6.6 volts– i.e., aproximately six and a half octaves above the current pitch of the cycled envelopes but not higher than 15 kHz.

The Gates or Gateways are opto-coupler-controlled Sallen-Key low-pass filter amplifiers. That means altering the gates offsets will alter both frequency cutoff and amplitude of the signal giving natural musical response, similar to acoustic instruments. Each gate has attenuverting CV inputs and gate A has an attenuverting audio input. In the middle position of the attenuverting knob no signal will pass into the according input. Cranking the knob clockwise will increase the passing of the original signal and turning the knob counterclockwise results in passing the inverted signal. By default each gate alters the cutoff frequency and amplitude that suits best for bongo and other 'pinging' timbres. There is one extra Voltage Controlled Filter mode thatenables full 12db/oct filtering without altering the amplitude of the signal.
Afterwards, both gates sum together to the final output section. There is also a separate output of gate A. Inserting a plug to it will disconnect gate A from the mixer (and no summing happens) so you may feed the output of gate A into other modules or directly into the audio input of Gate B to obtain a steeper cutoff slope. The inputs of each gate are DC-coupled and may be normalled to each other. That means a signal plugged into one Gate may be plugged simultaneously into another one as well. That connection breaks when any other plug (even an unconnected one) is inserted into another Gate's audio input. Passing the same signals to both gates and playing with the input phase and amplitude of gate A using the attenuverter (so the offsets of each gate will result in mixing of a low-passed signal with the pure inverted signal), will cause a high-pass effect.

There is no dedicated control of resonance (emphasis) at the gates but it may beachieved with a additional mixer module or by patching the mono final output (marked with a loudspeaker) into the input of agate, i.e., organizing the feedback loop of thesignal. It is convenient to send feedback into gate A where additional control over input phase and volume is given by the attenuverting knob.

The Final Output section has separate stereo and mono outputs, which share thesame volume knob. At full gain (knob fully clockwise) and center Panning knob the audio signal at the mono output is literally at a standard modular level (roundabout ±5V or 10Vpp). The Monooutput is DC-coupled and has 1kOhm output impedance, as ordinary modular audiooutputs are. It is possible to plug headphones or stereo amplifier system directly into stereo output, marked with the headphone icon. The stereo output is AC-coupled (to prevent possibledamage of your audio system by DC signals) and has got a pretty good level of outputcurrent to drive a wide range of headphones. The output amplitude of the stereo out islower than the ordinary modular level and is close to ordinary line level. Please connectonly stereo headset/amplifiers to the stereo output.

The Cabin pressure is a 12 bit 26 kHz sample rate digital effect that recreates some sort of reverb/echo with a few reflections (taps), the rate of which is controlled with a clock. The main intention of it is to add some air to the final audio output mostly at live performances. Tap tempo allows to create rhythmic delay effects that are also syncronized to the rest of the instruments used. It accepts low frequency trigger signals higher than 0,65 volts, namely BPM clock of the track. When the incoming clock signal is faster, it resembles some sort of chorus effect, and at rates faster than 50-60 Hz, the taps become almost mute in echo tails but may berecognized as a short clicks at attack sounds only. It’s possible to remove the plug fromthe tap clock input jack because it will remain the same speed once it was synconized. Three sequential taps (triggers) are enough to adjust the echo to a new tempo. At themodules' power-up the maximal tempo is set by until new clock will come.

Features

-26 HP width, up to 1" in depth (super slim & therefore skiff friendly).
-Dual voltage controlled AD/AR/looping envelope generators with arbitary voltage controlled slope shapes: from EXP to LIN to LOG without stretching the time length of a certain slope.
-1 volt per octave control over envelopes in the looping mode (to use the envelopes as band-limited oscillators).
-Dual opto-coupler controlled gates with universal sockets for a quick and simple exchange: one can use the factory supplied opto-couplers, replace the m with other ones or even roll your own: slow, fast, ringing – whatever!
-Voltage controlled cabin pressure effect. Add space to the final mix with the proper CVand TAP controls.
-Don't forget the stereo – dedicated stereo headphone output with voltage controlled panning.
