Built myself a little workspace here in the workshop. I’ve got lots of video content to do for the upcoming DSP board and I need somewhere to bust out the keyboard from time to time. Need better audio monitor placement. It’ll do for now. ... See MoreSee Less

Just now getting to listen to this wonderful Xmas gift from Dephrase .
A xmas infused beat tape made on his S2400.
Had to recondition and service this Technics M270x cassette deck just to listen to it, but it was worth it! ❤️

Wanted to drop y’all an update with where we’re at with the S2400 filter card and DSP card.

After some testing, I’m not overly blown away by the actual sound of the filters. I’m waiting to do more testing with them.
More UI code needs to be written yet.
Further, I’m waiting to hear how the analogue filters on our two Caladan cards sound, if one of those is much better, we’ll transplant those onto the S2400 card.

The DSP is progressing, albeit a little slower than I’d like. But I’ve been doing a lot of testing with it.
So far we have an insert plugin chain for each of the 8 outputs, these can be paired into stereo channels or treated as mono. So 8x mono or 4x stereo or any combination thereof.

Each of the 8 channels can also be sent to 2 send busses which also have their own insert fx chain. (Think reverb/delay etc) Finally, a new master channel which can again have its own plugin chain. There’s a fair amount still to do with the actual UI for this.
Aside from that, I’m trying to hat hatch a plan to figure out how we can also have a kind of ‘master performance fx ‘mode akin to sp404 stutter fx, slowdowns etc. using the 8 pads as triggers.

All this is of course going on while we’re hard at work with Caladan.

Thanks for all the support this year as it draws to a close. Spending a few days with the fam in Georgia then onto Asheville or cataloochee NC in search of snow. I’ll be back at it next week.
Big ❤️
Brad.

Had the legend that is Bill Pettaway come visit us at Isla HQ to talk about how he uses his S2400 and what we’re up to over here. Bill’s credits read like a who’s who of pop. He wrote the smash “Girl you know (it’s true)” ‘Performed’ by Milli Vanilli, did lots of the work on Justin Timberlake’s ‘Justified’ album, Missy Elliot and so much more. It was an absolute pleasure, Bill. Thanks for stopping by! ... See MoreSee Less
