Finally, finally, we're there ! (well, almost... read on)

Pricing for the Model 416 Meta Expander has been set.

It is €1650 (euros).

Payable per bank transfer, or Paypal.
Paypal payment only in Euros - payments in other currencies will be returned.

A deposit of €800 (euros) is required to get on the pre-order list.
Attention: pre-ordering will start at the 2nd- or 3rd of January 2018 (I will let you know the exact date soon). Please, please do not email me with orders before that date, nor do transfer any money !

Once your deposit is received, and your order is confirmed, expect a delivery time of about 1.5 months (max), shifted along with a few days depending on where you're at in the list.


What's in the box :

- The Model 416 Meta Expander (duh) for BEMI Easel or rev2 clone.
Housed in a gorgeous, seamless custom-made boat, matte black powder-coated. (17x7x3")
Front is a scratch-free "natural aluminium" anodized panel (non-brushed), with dark blue in-pore printing.

- The Model 416 Edge Card, 100% compatible with BEMI programming cards.

- A 60-pin custom-made ribbon cable assembly, to connect the Expander to the Edge Card.

- A User Manual (which also explains the somewhat oblique art of vc-controlling the Easel's switches).

- The royalty fee for a Easel-ified version of Serge Tcherepnin's Universal Slope Generator.

- Free WW FedEx shipping !


Please note that possible customs duties and/or taxes may be added, depending on where you're located. I don't know how much this will be, if anything at all, and I have no control over it.

====

I've had several requests and questions about the possibility of having a "straight-down" IDC connector on the Expander (instead of the right-angled one, which comes out at the left side of the boat). This would most certainly aid in putting the Expander in an existing 19" rack or Buchla enclosure or similar. But this requires a rather difficult and complete re-design of the inner guts of the Expander... thusly sprouting forth a 2nd version of the Expander, *without* a boat.
I'm willing to consider this only when I receive enough [serious] requests, with a firm commitment to buy when released. "Enough" being at least 10 units... Development of a 416 straight-down Expander will certainly push back the delivery time of such a thing by at least two months.
Please email me (not PM!) in private if you're in for this: g u y @ g u y d 2 . c o m

Thank you all for sticking with me during these long two years, and happy holidays !

Perfect timing for me

Waiting on JMLS 208 kit and was already looking at expansion.

What great timing and congratulations on your efforts and accomplishment.

I am going to post this over at FB, as there may be a few folks that are in on the 208 kit that will find this expander rather compelling.

I am in for sure.......Steve

Here's a first patch with the Easel & Model 416 Meta Expander:

I'm really bad at all things video. Sorry 'bout that.

More to follow soon...


In the mean time, still waiting for Paypal to resolve some matters so I can start the pre-ordering.


Happy NewYear !

Yes.

Like I said before, doing video is not my greatest forte.
But I'll do my best to whip up a few more over the next week.

I don't want to speak for Guy (gddfp) but as far as I understood there was a single manufacturing run based on pre-orders and no plans to make any more. If I am wrong about that then maybe Guy will correct me.

There is a 416 available for sale on Reverb for $2,000. Is it worth that much? There isn't a ton of info on the web about it.

If you looks at the Euro price, add shipping and import tax that sounds reasonable.
