Holy smokes, that is impressive. And I’m only on the first detail video. (OS made a playlist of five demo video on YouTube)



I hope he’s building a lot of them.

Interesting!
There's a lot I like about this 'upgrade' (OLED screen, lower latency, higher sample rate) but 229mA on the +12v rail seems pretty high for an 8HP module.

Looks amazing. Oz is saying it's available now, but I don't see anywhere that's offering it. Has anyone seen it for sale anywhere?

The "MIDI fader module" os is using is the Michigan Synth Works F8R, which has headers for MIDI and I2C. os confirmed there is also I2C control of the disting EX and it can also send and receive on the Select Bus! I think this module is going to be a powerful bridge of a few ecosystems...

700 microseconds, is that 0.7 milliseconds? i suck at math and converting stuff.

really nice upgrade from the mk4.

also, finally velocity sensitivity using gates... it's so lazy it's not done more in modular. Much respect for doing that.

Looks fantastic, will definitely pick one up. Even uses the Street Fighter “ex plus alpha” logo too.

This is a great development.

Now the question is: how many more upgrades for Mk4 -- can we continue to expect that there will be some support for it in the near future?

Wonder if there’s a possibility of this doing granular effects now that it has more power.

Yeah, insta buy from me, power spec and lack of space notwithstanding. Got an order in straight off the batt ( see what I did there?) cos these are gonna go like toilet roll.

Wondering if the MIDI capability is any different? I keep looking at the FH-2, but I don't need that much power or even an interface that much...

The reverbs and delays in 8 hp could be super useful for more rack space...
