From noisesource's twitter:

Could be any day now for real...

He also had a shot of the TTA Matrix Sequencer nicely patched up...

They look great.
I hope they are not color coded by length.

Soon 3.5mm jacks can have their normalizations and their stacking too.
That's better than cake. It is worthy of a proper pie.

That is lame.
Please consider amending this TipTop.

Let's start a poll to see how people feel about it.

What's wrong with them being color coded by length. I find that helpful...

I think at this point it's about just getting some made. In the future I could easily see them being made in all manner of colours, regardless of length.

I remember seeing a brilliant (boing-boing? Gizmodo?) video about the Lego factory, how they could easily just switch out the granules that fed into the machine to get a different colour.

Either way these look SICK! it's official, Noisesource/burstgen is a doodie head for being well connected ;)

Just ordered 10 to go with my about to ship Monorocket Mission 9, even though they are $8 a piece. :woah:

Agreed.
I just don't understand the logic behind only offering each color in a certain length.
Smaller stock to produce/carry? :despair:

These are for modular synths.
Shouldn't the user be given as many choices about workflow as possible (including how they use their cables)?

In any case, this appears to be a good product.
I don't mean to shit on the parade.

allow me to illustrate this with an example:

there was a guy recently, let's call him "Händel", who wanted to start a synth casing company.
Instead of just offering like, one or two case from the beginning, he wanted to offer a bazillion different ones.
well, turns out that was extremely expensive and he, among other things, ran out of money. REAL quick. Mind you, that was for stuff made *in-house*. Now imagine having to order from a factory with a minimum order of lord knows how many thousands...

my point is, give it time; first we let the idea of stack jacks themselves settle in to euro-land, then we ask for seconds ;)

I don't see the problem with the color-code scheme myself, but everyone works differently.

And as for the price tag...well...let's consider how much $ a fat stack of mults costs, PLUS the fact that they take up precious precious space in the rack(s). I, for one, think that $8 a cable isn't all that terrible - though it would be nice to have a couple of "package options" with a slight discount. Or a price break per quantity. Oh well. TipTop is, indeed, TipTop.

Gotta ask:

Since these cables effectively achieve "Banana-ism" when patching...I am recalling being told by someone in the "true banana" realm that stacking Inputs is BAD BAD BAD. So, without these cables, we use mixers to send multiple signals to a single source (unless said source has multiple inputs) and we use mults to send a single source to many targets.

So, is stacking Inputs in Bananaland or Stackjack World actually bad? And if so, why?

Can anyone elaborate?

Thanks!

you stack just at the outputs, they same with the mulples, there you connect just one output (normaly) to several inputs

an other thing
i've been told that to much weight on a jack socket could be very bad for the socket, because it wears out. this is a problem which often came, when people used adapters for big jack cables to a small socket.
i don't know how heavy this tip top jacks are, so maybe long no problem there

haha, uh yeah, why even stack them like that?

You stack them from one destination to the next, in a long daisy chain.

8$ a piece?!

Ridiculous price. The sad thing is, people will pay it including me. Buchla sells cheaper cables.....
