This problem was fixed thanks to Pier, a customer with a lot of experience in front end development. Thanks a lot!
A customer let me know that the control panels stopped working with the latest Google Chrome version (on Mac Version 77.0.3865.90). A fix will come asap, in the meanwhile try to install the previous version (74.0.3729.169): For Mac and for windows.
Google has broken the MIDI API support on the new version, let’s hope the next version will fix that problem.
I am super stoked to announced that customers in the US can now order SoundForce products from Perfect Circuit (Burbank, CA). With great advantages such as free shipping (above 99$), easy returns and an extended warranty. Of course you can order online (https://www.perfectcircuit.com), but they also have a brick and mortar shop in Burbank, so you can try the products there before purchasing if you are in the area.
All the preorders have shipped last week. So far the feedback is excellent. Both products are now in stock and usually shipping within a week. I have few dedicated customers that ordered the full product line-up. I will post pictures of their setup when I receive them, first one is below.
This 14/15/16 of June I will get plenty of modular action. I am going to 3 events that are organised by dedicated and passionated people.
On Friday the 14th, there is an event in my hometown of Enschede, in the Netherlands. We have a great little of community of syntheads. Last edition was a lot of fun. It takes place in the sickhouse, an old Hospital building where all sort of cool underground and art things are going on. Link to event.
On Saturday, I will travel to Belgium (my country originally) to participate to the PULSE festival. There is a great live line-up and a nice makers maker. It sounds very promising, there is a second hand market and some interest for DIYers. Link to event.
On Sunday, I have the opportunity to present my modules at the Square Wave modular improvisation session in Deventer, The Netherlands. Link to event.
Hello stranger and welcome to my website. My name is Nicolas and SoundForce is my company. It started in 2014 with a simple idea: wouldn’t it be cool to control software synthesizers with dedicated controllers? For the first time, I combined my Electrical Engineering background with my love for computer music. My first product was the SFC-60, a controller for the TAL U-NO-LX Juno-60 plugin. Back then, everything was made by me and by hand. Since then, I have developed 4 different models and improved design and manufacturing drastically.
In April 2016, I ordered my first Eurorack DIY kit from Thonk.co.uk. I was hooked instantly and started to build my own case, my own utility modules, few Mutable modules and started (too) many projects. At the time, I was working in local FabLab and could easily mill PCBs, laser front panels and CNC some Eurorack cases. This led to a couple of DIY products in 2017, such as Clocky and the 808 Kick and Snare. In 2018, I worked on the first Eurorack assembled module, the DCO, a modern homage to the Juno-60/106 oscillator section. For Superbooth 2019, the DCO is announced as well as some other upcoming modules.
Prior to starting SoundForce, I worked as an Industrial Programming Engineer as well as in the music business as an engineer/producer/composer. With SoundForce I finally merged my both backgrounds.
