I decided to drop the MIDI controllers to make time to work on new exciting projects, modular projects! I am starting by building a lot of DIY modules, some kits, some own designs. With a CNC router I also built my case. The first SoundForce modules will come during summer 2017.
Unfortunately there is no chance to get a SoundForce controller anymore, as I don’t have PCBs and front panels in stock. The low demand made it impossible to mass-produce the products, the failed kickstarter campaign confirmed my assumptions. The fact that they were not just blown synths never justified the price tag for a lot of people. But due to the amount of controls and the hand assembly I could not just reduce the price. A great experience anyway!
The first batch of SFC-60 is finally sold out. The controller “might” get an update and a new production batch later this year. It depends on how busy I get with freelancing/consulting and prototyping some Eurorack modules. I ordered some PCBs for the SFC-Mini, there will be stock around October-November.
For the people in the Brussels area, I will be exhibiting my controllers at Makerstown on Tuesday 24th May (next week). Come to take a look and try them out!
Until 31st december, get the SFC-60 or SFC-101 for a special price. 225 euros instead of 250 euros (regular price). For customers outside the EU: 185.95 euro (instead of 206.6 regular price).
Please note that units will ship in January 2016.
As you maybe noticed, the SFC-Mini Kickstarter campaign didn’t get funded. That’s too bad but I am making new plans to move on. I decided to produce the SFC-Mini’s in few small batches and by hand. The layout will stay the same as the prototypes showcased on the Kickstarter page.
This week I ordered the different parts for the first batch. Although it’s hard to say exactly when the units will be ready, there will be 7 units ready next week and probably 10 more every 2-3 weeks.
If you are still interested to purchase one, please fill this form : http://goo.gl/forms/aUNS21E4Si I will be in touch with you when I have stock. Let me also know what is your favourite color as I will pick max. 2 or 3 of the most popular colors.
Thanks for your support! Even if this haven’t been a very successful attempt, I am happy that a small group of fanatics are enthusiastic about this anyway.
