i hope we will see real time time stretch or some sort of elastic audio.not sure if i heard effects will be included or and after market add on like the analog filters.

Ok, here's the drumloops... ... See MoreSee Less

the machine is close enough in character and work flow to the original in my opinion, i'm good with that, interested to see now what sets it apart. no complaints here, nice one.

Great job on this machine!!!

🙌🏻

Hells yes

Sounds lovely! Really captures the sonic characteristics of the original. There's some occasions where the drumpads on the 2400 don't seem to trigger correctly though. What's up with that?

The high end sounds a bit brighter on the original, the difference is quite noticable on the snare from the first loop. Sounds pretty sweet nevertheless

I can't WAIT!...i think this will be my new toy

Reminds me of editing on an ASR10. Love the workflow.

that's a very neat job you have done there mate. congrats . I hope it meets your expectations in the market , it deserves it . I was watching from the beginning so i know it does

So excited for this. Thx for the updates.

Excellent work!!

Your doing a grand job!

I flux with it

Very nice

Sounds bad (but in the really really good way).

Does the SP2400 have threshold-sensitive sampling or do you need to truncate everything you sample?

Can we hear disco loops??

👍🏾

Sounding good 💪

🔥🔥🔥👏👏

Maybe add some trax and a turret on this tank!?!

👌

is it just me? but they do sound slightly different? sp2400 more heights? and more noise when downpitching?

Nicole Lynn.. I want this machine

Kennnny !!!

The details of product development, right down to weight (presumably to understand bulk shipping costs) are fairly amazing to me, and I feel like I’m getting a front seat to a product inception through implementation, a valuable experience for any future product engineer/developer/manager/owner.

she’s a phat little baby..

AvE voice: "She's certainly got a bit'o gravity to'er!"

I had to google that into English.. (6.6kg). 😀

That’s almost 6.6kg, if anyone is curious.

Bravo! They'll be asking to borrow the car keys before you know it.

with or without Grayhill encoder?

Is it official

When on the market 👆🏽🔥

He we goooooo😎

Dope 💥🔥

a small but very significant design change, you can thank Paul T Schreiber ... See MoreSee Less

Good advice offered and taken. You guys would have been swamped with warranty repairs down the line.

Great example for lots of manufacturers only looking at the cost-side of parts and not the quality their customers get. Love that.

this is very transparent, i have never purchased a piece of equipment with actual explanations of why one part might be better than another. nice one.

I was a fly on the wall on that conversation which was in the hotel lobby at the end of knobcon. Thats what knobcon is all about helping each othermake better machines for better music. Paul T Schreiber!

Did not expected getting goosebumps from an knob clicking. 😄

he knows 😉

Geeks

Rob Sigston seen this?

Brilliant! Thank you Mr Schrieber. Having had to replace quite a few of those little ALPS (RK09s in my case) rotary potentiometers myself on an old Akai MFC42, I can attest to their relatively short life span... 5k - 30k actuations depending on model.

Bravo , cazzo !

Super stoked that I've finished the schematic for 'REV2" of the audio board.All the 'audio stuff' has been split away from the 'computer' part into 2 separate pcbs, so now all those extra bits I talked about, (Independent headphone monitoring, daughtercard bus for filters/add in cards, pannable stereo mix, phono pre-amps , switching logic for pulling preset filters in and out of circuit (no more half plugging jacks) ) is done.Double checking the work (with 3rd parties too) and then I'll get these boards spun.If all is good with that, then we have a production ready board!! 😀 woohooo..The astute among you will also notice a signal there called 'resample'So, if you're just banging samples on an sd card, you'll miss out of the sound imparted from the OG input filtering. what the SP2400 can do, is playback a sample from your sd card and loop it back into it's own input filters and record the result back to your card!! Essentially, making it sound the same as if you had actually sampled it yourself... 🙂p.s all the meat of the circuits are inside those boxes you see, this is the topological view of the circuit. ...

Awesome, Brad, is it still possible to join the pre-sale?

Wow!! This is super cool. It's going to be amazing. Genius for sure!

So cool. I was hoping resampling might be implemented. This is even better than I thought.

Please keep up the good work. 🙂

Thats so cool so its like sampling off the sd through the sp circuitry. I hope im getting this right. Super cool.

You’re a fucking genius ISLA Instruments thanks for all the hard work your putting in to this piece and your brand I’m ride witcha from now on in saving to get your Kordbot going to see more info in making payments dm with info if possible thanks again for all you do BOSS !!! GENIUS iFucking tell you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can’t wait this is what the games been missing 💯💪🏽🔊🎧🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

I think it sucks..... just kidding!!! Sp2400 will ROCK!!!!

I can’t wait

I think it's safe to say Isla has caught the bug.. she loves synths and singing already... I guess that's her broke for the rest of her life... haha ... See MoreSee Less

Finally, we get to see the founder/inspiration of ISLA instruments 👍🏼

Wait, HER NAME is isla? That's so cool. Was the company named after her? 🤔

lil star sketching out her set list

That’s awesome. And my Kordbot is too! Hey, where’d you get those angled synth holder arms?
