Countdown to Superbooth 2018: Powder coating

By | Main page blog

Today I picked up from the powder coating company all the front and bottom panels for the MIDI controllers. 100kg of steel and aluminium parts. It was done in Germany in Gronau just across the border. Check out the size of the oven. Tomorrow the front panels get screen printed in another city nearby.

Countdown to Superbooth 2018: DIY modules

By | Main page blog

I will show and demonstrate a number of DIY Eurorack modules. Easy builds on a reasonable budget. Here is one I like a lot, a STM32 Arduino-compatible trigger/gate to CV module. Can be a ADSR, dual LFO, random CV generator, melody/sequencer generator, etc.. I have programmed solid firmwares for an ADSR and dual LFO.

SFC-Mini V2 Product preview and 2 pre-release units available in the shop

By | Main page blog

I have 2 units in the shop of the new version of the SFC-Mini. Those are testing units of the new model, 100% working and fully functional. New features are the rocker switches, very Minimoog-like! The front panel is wood with a protective coating, the sides and back plate are black acrylic plastic. Only 2 units were made with this finish and color scheme.

Please note the product pictures are done in my living in an amateur set-up.

SFC-Mini and SFC-60 coming back in 2018

By | Main page blog

The people have spoken. Every week I am getting emails from people wanting to get their hands on a controller…

This got me excited about redesign my controllers. I got new connections with suppliers and companies which will yield better products. I also was able to redesign using parts that are faster to assemble which means more efficiency for me. The SFC-101 WILL NOT come back due to the very low demand.

If you are interested in buying a SoundForce controller, you can suscribe to the mailing list : https://goo.gl/forms/LAg7GBQXtel8lEPk2

Pictures will come soon.

 

MIDI CONTROLLERS DISCONTINUED

By | Main page blog

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!
