After a succesfull betatest phase i am happy to announce that the Nerdseq production of the first batch just started. In a few weeks i will receive the assembled boards and all needed components. If everything is on time, produced well and tested then i can start to ship the first units at the end of August 2017.
Superbooth was amazing!
Thanks to all the people who came by to check the real thing. I got many positive responses and saw loads of happy faces who can’t wait for all to be released.
As the Nerdsynth will take a while, the Nerdseq is very close to hit the market. Planned release is now July of 2017. More information about orders and avaliability comes as soon as possible.
Oh well, i am lazy with the blog updates. But that doesn’t mean that i am not busy with the Projects. Actually the opposite is the case. I use every free minute to get the NerdSEQ ready. The Betatest batch is already in production and estimated to be ready in the middle of march. When the hardware is fine, i will directly start the first real batch. The Nerdsynth is delayed now until the Nerdseq production is running.
In April i will present the NerdSEQ, it’s expansion modules and the Nerdsynth prototype at the already famous Superbooth Fair for electronic instruments on (April 20-22 2017 in Berlin). Visit me at booth O507, XOR Electronics (My company behind the NerdSEQ and Nerdsynth). From then the first Nerdseq batch will be available.
Next week there is the great Noise Kitchen Synth Fest #2 in Brno organized by the Bastl Instruments guys. With many Synthesizers, Modulars, DIY Workshops and performances. And the Nerdsynth will be there, too. You will be able to play with the recent Nerdsynth prototype and chat with me about its future.
Once in a while we show major updates and now we can present the first full video with visual sequencing. Again, this is the very first visual implementation but it gives a clue what it might be. There are also some other GUI updates (player indication, progressbars and the 2 new visual tracks).
Finally…a new demo. Not all features in there. But you can see some new stuff for sure.Enjoy!
Autumn has arrived and we have finally finished our new prototype. It’s the first prototype where we can plug in different Sound Cartridges. We made 7 of them: ATMegatron, Meeblip, DSP-G1, Soundgin, SID, CV/Gate, and a DIY one. We designed a proper circuit board for this prototype and had it assembled at a production facility to get a feel for the challenges that lay ahead for the final design of the Nerdsynth. Also, we used a 3D printer to try out different designs for the enclosure of the Nerdsynth.
Here you can see 4 Cartridge Prototypes:
We went to the ADE Soundlab to show the prototype to an audience. The days were pretty busy and we talked to many people, with many backgrounds, but they all agree: The Nerdsynth is awesome!
Check out the picture of our booth at ADE:
Thanks again to the Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie for their funding!
Next we will prepare a new video which shows all features so far. Stay tuned!
Just when you think nothing is happening anymore cause of summer lazyness…the opposite is the case. We are more than busy to get the next prototype ready for the Amsterdam Dance Event Soundlab in october.
Prototype manufacturing for the new mainboard is very close and we already received the PCB’s of 5 different Nerdsynth Sound Adapter (NSA) prototypes.
In the next days we will present the first few NSA-cartridge designs to you.
