guys I had an idea for FXAID and was curious if it was possible ..
to me it seems it would possibly make more sense if the "left" button was a bank button, and the "right" button scrolled through the diff banks in 1 direction. Pressing the Left button would take you to the 9th patch, where the top row is on dot 2 for example.

Seems it would be a lot more efficient at getting to your patch even if it was one directional. Maybe a future alt firmware could do this?
I think on average it wouldn't really be more efficient because it would need to be one directional. In the current scheme you can never be more than 16 presses away from another patch. In yours I think the maximum is 10 but it has the unfortunate effect of requiring cycling through either 3 or 7 more presses any time you push one too many times. I think the need for additional care would offset any real gains :despair:

9 is more efficient than 16 :)
How about a long press of the Left button, goes to the next bank. Or maybe both buttons at once goes to the next bank

I think in this context "geiler Scheiss" can definitely be translated as "hot shit". Which remindes me:

Amazing soundtrack.

Ok, added "Delay AUX" to the effects list. It works as requested: Right channel is used for send and return to externally process the feedback pass.
You're the fucking man igorrr. My unit was meant to be delivered today but DHL fucked me and didn't even attempt it, I guess Monday is the new weekend anyway :guinness:
I literally have no idea of what day of the week it is...

"Generator" effect added to the Shaper category.
It is audio rate waveform generator with coarse and fine frequency tuning. Third knob crossfades Left output from sine to square, and Right output from triangle to rising sawtooth. D/W knobs serves as level control.

if you keep adding features you could build a system out of 20 FX AIDs ;)

It's starting to look that way. I found an actual photo from Happy Nerding headquarters:

Extremely impressed by how good FX Aid sounds!

I would love something like a tape saturation patch. Maybe controls like input gain, tape age/tone, and wow & flutter? I'm thinking in particular about the result of running a whole patch into a three head cassette deck, recording onto and monitoring a tape loop for some saturation and warble.
Seconded, there aren't really many modules that do something like this. A compressor would also be welcome!

Does it/could it track 1v per octave?

Do you know if there is a waiting list or if they take preorders or anything like that? Or will it just be a mad dash when they restock?

The chips itself can not quickly react to the CV changes, so proper VCO is not possible due to this portamento effect. Anyway Generator effect can still have many useful applications as modulator or static / weird tracked voice.

I hope that the preorder window isn’t at 3am or something ridiculously early...I need my sleep these stressful days.

I have always been a bit confused about these "send / return" loops. Wouldn't I achieve exactly the same thing, if I multed the output from the FX Aid (the "send"), then ran it through a filter or whatever and mixed the result (the "return") with the original input signal before sending it into FX Aid?
No. Because when you patch in a filter in the feedback path, each repeat gets more and more filtered. For example if you patch an LPF, each repeat will get darker and darker.
