I currently live in a porta-potty so the knowledge that some day soon I will live in a house in a beautiful country gives me strength.
Is the porta-potti lucky enough to randomly spawn at all the great festivals or is it more a building site porta-potty. Asking for a friend XD

I mentioned this earlier in the thread but if I had any input in this project, I would’ve been all for the Amish approach lol and rounded up every able body in the community to help get this house built! As the old saying goes, it takes a village…
Ah, another enthusiast for the Mythical Man Month, I see :sstorm:

Please Guys - Cool it ! Let's all hope that Jim succeeds in finalizing and delivering this product. It will be totally Awesome! The tape delay market is still defined by the Roland Space Echo line of models - almost 50 years old. None of them had CV. My 40+ years old Korg SE-500 Stage Echo has 3 CV's, and that's still extraordinary. T-Rex ported their guitar tape-delay to Euro Rack, but missed the point and the opportunity, by only supplying it with two ! CV's - and a proprietary tape format. The T-2 works with standard cassettes, has - sorry - will have loads of modulation options, optimized for integration with both Eurorack and studio equipment, and Jim included lots of new functions proposed from this forum when it was till positive, creative and inspiring.

When I paid my $1,200 I had no illusions whatsoever about this not being a difficult and risky task - but it is still so exciting, that I have no problems with taking that risk, to help this fantastic piece of equipment to materialize. Small money compared to what I since 1977 have shelled out for crappy products from well established large corporations, not to mention HW depending on drivers or special SW which suddenly is not supported anymore.

There is NOTHING like the T-2 out there - not even Uli, who copies everything else has announced any kind of copycat ;-) product.
Whining will not help this product being shipped - SO - if there are more people like me, who has followed this thread without participating in the discussions, but are now fed up with all the negativity - speak up about your faith in this product. Even if it should fail - the attempt to make it happen is Heroic !

Greetings, Niklas. Cool avatar. Synth Tech modular levels should be able to be processed through TE-2 without any problems. That is another aspect of this machine. Even Moogerfoogers clip like shiza from modular levels. TE-2 is definitely going to be special.

It would be nice to hear some more demos of the unit as it's hitting the home stretch. As much as I love this demo, and it got me to pre-order, it's getting kind of long in the tooth...
LOL @ myself thinking a year ago we were close to release. Between these guys and Stam Audio I've finally learned my lesson about preorders. Never again.

So if everything is in progress like it seems now it could have been possible the all pcb are inhouse by end of the year.

Gringo, I believe it’s an SH2. That may also explain why the filters chosen for Te2 are Roland based. ( besides the fact that they just sound great )

All pcbs by the end of the year even if just first revs would be great. Lots of layout and design to go though!!

No i don't think thats a SH2 in that video, looks more like some yamaha or something, the SH2 doesn't have octave and percussive names below the knobs, sounds great though!

Also, great news that the PCB's are moving along, nice update can't wait to finally see the first test pcb's getting some, well, testing xD!!!

Yeah Templar, you are right. I’ve seen SH2 numerous times on their Instagram page and just figured that was it... So once again, I drill down into their Instagram page and listen to every demo and refresh my excitement for this upcoming masterpiece.

Glad to see the project moving on well. I’d say hold fire yet. The first revision is rarely perfect. Might take a batch or two to get right. But glad it’s moving in the right direction now.

If the PCBs are ordered does that mean we can unlock this thread?

I appreciate everyone's enthusiasm, I really do. But man, this still feels like we're at the "What color are we painting the master bedroom?" phase of the house build. I'd honestly be surprised if anyone gets an actual package sitting on their doorstep before summer of 2021.

I think that is a reasonable timespan if everything is moving along as it should but with everything we know about 'the complexivity' of this house it can easly turn into end of 2021. I mean if the Scots may leave the empire to got back into EU god knows what's going to happen with our costal retirement investment.

Right, Slumber... I hope no more contractor shifting, especially now since the framing of the cottage is apparently underway.
Summer 2021 would be great. I would be very surprised if it happened any earlier.

Super slowdown of cassette, pitch keeps getting lower... eventually into CV territory? I’m assuming this will be set to block dc (cap on output). But if it’s not..? Could we record cv’s? As long as we kept our signals in the correct range in to the tape, we could boost them on the way out.
