Please check out our friends Kickstarter campaign for the SynthTech E520 Hyperion Stereo Effects Processor.SynthTech design and build possibly the most luxurious euro modules in existance.Paul T Schreiber and Eric Brombaugh have advised me on several aspects of the SP-2400 project. So here's wishing them every success.Check it here; bit.ly/2NRf2sb ... See MoreSee Less
Good morning lovely people.I've been sent photos of the new enclosures but I am not happy with the silkscreen graphics.As you can see in the photos there are several issues with alignment, issues that don't exist in my files.At this point, it's likely that I need to go there and oversee production myself.It seems to me like they are being rushed. How anyone could print that onto the metal and then say to themselves "yeah that looks good' Is beyond me.As I said, I think I need to fly over and oversee quality control. They'll probably do a much better job if I start rejecting parts and refuse to pay for them. It's frustrating, but we'll get this sorted. ... See MoreSee Less
yea, I see it, mainly in the text headings of some of the buttons (off centered to the right) and those oval shapes around the channel knobs is off centered to the right as well. good catch!
It looks more like distortion from the photo angles than alignment issues but, then again, I don’t really know what you’re looking at or what you were going for.
I appreciate you making sure we receive a quality product!
Aye, chihuahua! Glad you have a particular eye for this. Those off center ovals enclosing the dual buttons above the faders would have triggered my OCD. The messed up text on the back is unforgivable.
What a pain when people don't do their job. Hope it's a simple and easily remedied mistake.
Crappy details all over the shop there. I'd be livid.
Question, will the print be able to be scratched off? I had a Roland TR8s which is a fairly new device and I scratched the print with my fingernail because I thought it was something blocking the text, and I scratched away the damn text. PS yeah I can see the flaws, it’s awesome that your carrying use through the building phase, keep up the great work.
Maybe do a overlay skin like sp1200, that way you don't lose out on a bunch of enclosures from a poorly screen printed job, they could just print one color on the back. I kind of like the sp1200 laminate, it was durable and could be easily replaced if needed. it usually lasted a decade or more. it could also be a nice accessory that you could make additional funds in the future, you know its gonna be a classic piece of kit.
Shocking mate, glad you’re on top of the situation. I’d rather have delays then a rushed product.
It’s good you have such an eye for detail. This is what it’s like to manufacture in China. Always a learning process.
Fair play fella - release it when you're happy
Looks shonky. Best to go there yourself and get the job done right
Yeah you have to a SOB when it comes to quality and how you want things. Especially when your money is involved !!!
aaggghh! The kerning!
Besides the bad quality print:
Please don‘t do your brand logo in red. The first version in grey looks much cleaner in my opinion. I would prefer the stealthier look. 😎
if you need a good contact for screenprint hit me up. those pictures looks newbie.
oh brother ...
Where are they being done?
Sometimes if you want something done right you have to either monitor or do it yourself.
ah yeah it is a bit wonky
I dont think I would have noticed if you didnt point it out.
Let’s go over there mob handed and give it to em straight 💪
More good news.The audio PCB samples are also now on their way to me. I just need to solder on the input and output Jacks. If testing all good then that's another board ready for fabrication...yay! ... See MoreSee Less
The main computer board is now being sent to fabrication.Included on each board will be a little dedication to my auntie. <3Things are moving along nicely now, production proofs of the Control panel and Audio boards will be shipping to me tomorrow for test.. 🙂We're getting there folks! ...

Coincidentally, this is the last post on his profile..
Can you please name and Shame!
this is where you pay someone part time to handle your PR/Social Media, and stay focused where your energy (and time) is best served: making the products 👍🏼
Most people In the sampler game are brilliant people, but i have had many conversions with arrogant people like this.
Its absolutely real! For sure😀 wil the chordbot still be available as well? Stil have many interrest in that one, i must wait bit longer to efford it 🙂 start of 2020 i should be able to buy 😀its a must have😍
some people pay for comedy that funny
had a good laugh lol
lots of angry people in the world looking for a reason
Omg lol 😂. Did he just offer you exposure bucks
I work on race cars
lets be real
When you’re saying young people don’t buy hardware, but then suggest young people listen to FM Radio...
Having a rough morning... needed this good laugh.
I’m impressed with your patience.
Honestly I've come across this attitude so many times, especially in hip hop. Too many egos. clearly he's only taken 2 seconds to read about your product.
in 2019 there isn't a radio show in existence that could make SP2400's fly off the shelves.
glad I read through to the end for "get a Drake endorsement"
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve told my nan to stop messaging people after she’s been at the gin. Truly sorry. Won’t happen again
I lived in a hole for a while. Couldn’t see much. Getting out was the best thing i did 🙂
This guy sound more like beat thang type 😂
You gave him more time than i would have! What a chancer....
He is saying big name artists mean nothing while at the same time pushing a medium (FM Radio) that is essentially a dinosaur...
Haha what a troll! Totally need to Photoshop Drake and Khaled rocking out with a prototype now 🤩
Ok I’m done!!!😂😂
Times like this, you hope for someone to invent a virtual kick in the nuts that the person on the other end can actually feel.
Stop! Before it goes in you have to think up some cool weird thing to have printed on the PCB that has no practical function. The SP 12 had Paul is the walrus in backward letters. S c i put Indian Mandela's on their pcbs. This is your instrument you've got to put a signature something crazy hidden inside on the boards.
Man I can't thank you enough for your dedication to this project. You are really awesome man !!!! I can't wait to get my hands on mines ! This is going to be one Christmas and New Years I am definitely looking forward to !!!!!
Could you do a small video or post and shed some light on the sequencer? I'm assuming there is at least a rudimentary one. Cheers
Is it really wobbly or is that image stability artifact?
