I want another one of these but I'll wait for later in the year when the initial demand hopefully dies down. Mine stays on blackhole reverb most of the time right now so I need another one to do all the other things it can do :omg:
Aww yeah that’s why ordered two right away!
One of them always stays in the big sky and blackhole modes. The other one I keep for more experimental stuff- pitch shifting, delays, etc.

Everyone had the same opportunity to buy one if they were quick enough, it doesn't matter if they asked about it a week ago
or a month ago.
i know it's meant to be a fair system, but if you're like me and didn't email because there is no preorder/waitlist and there's no point adding to someone's workload just because you're impatient, then you got zero chance to even try. i thought we were all kinda waiting around for it to go live, so i just refreshed every now and then and hoped for the best. there was nothing to indicate to me that some people were going to get advance notification with dates and times.

at least now i know to check at 1pm on monday, because someone who already got theirs posted that info. that gives me a fair shot at the second batch.

you're kidding. so, there's no waiting list, but there's an unofficial waiting list? lovely.
There was no "unofficial waiting list". FX Aid modules were purchased through the website like all others.
Everyone had the same opportunity to buy one if they were quick enough...
Ah, but no forum thread anywhere, is truly complete these days, unless it includes a conspiracy theory :hide:

Yes, I was disappointed, too - but then I spared a thought for poor igorrr, and how he was probably kicking himself at the thought of how many more he could have sold, if only he'd produced a bigger batch. So I'm over it - I know I will get one eventually, one day - but I won't be getting two, because now I have a Tiptop Z5000 on the way. Meanwhile I :love: my 3xMIA - a super little module.

The only thing that really pissed me off about this whole episode, was the way that Schneidersladen (my last, desperate port of call)...
a) Took my order, despite not having the stock to fulfil it.
b) Proceeded to charge my credit card after I'd cancelled the order and they had acknowledged the cancellation.
c) Blamed it all on their new website.
d) Left me swallowing a small loss, due to currency movements while the refund was going through. Only 6.28 GBP - but it's not the money, it's the principle.

Anyway, that's my morning :mad: done with - enjoy your lush reverbs, you lucky, lucky...
It may stop, but it never ends.

Just swapped the knobs on mine to the micro ones (thanks to Thonk) and I’ll see how they work out.

I don’t know what else AH could do. With delayed production and unpredictable international shipping & custom delays you can’t promise very much in advance. I waited for more info on the site but none was coming so I eventually followed directions and sent an email. Shawn was careful not to over promise anything and was patient when I misread the date and asked again. Anyway, there’s said to be another batch coming real soon.

Are there more algo demos anywhere?

Was there actually a second drop of 50 on Monday or did it get pushed back?

Standalone FX AID editor application is now available for both PC and MAC (Windows 7 x64-- up, Mac OS 10.12 - up). The first run requires internet connection to load program files and the current list of effects. After that the program will occasionally update itself and new effects automatically.
Application has the added "Program Library" section to load custom/free Spin programs. Which are then shown under the "User" effect list.
Please note that buggy custom programs should be checked & corrected with the default Spin application. FX AID editor application will not provide detailed information on errors.

Igor, the application doesn't load previous saved .json banks from the web editor or the application itself.

File -> Open Bank -> (Select .json bank) -> Open = Nothing.

Amazing, @igorr. 👍🏽

Now I need to check spin resources. Not sure if there is a Mac editor, etc.

EDIT: Also, if anyone comes across good programs that work well with the FXAID, please share. I'm especially looking for glitchy or granular fx.

Can't get my hands on it since more than 2 months.
Wish I will be able to grab one before my next performance.
But since I'm waiting, reading this tread weekly ... I guess I will order 2 directly
I wanted it to have a great and compact end of chain reverb (like the blackhole / big sky preset)
but the constant stream of new features makes wonder why I will not need 2 !!!!

Tested the MacOS app today and it worked perfectly. The ability to load my own SPN files was the icing on the cake. Thanks @igorr for providing the app.

what on earth?? Even though I got one of the first batches of the FX Aid, I've never been able to update firmware until today. I couldn't get the module to recognize the wav file when I played it out of Windows Media Player or Wavelab. Played it out of Reaper and it worked on this first try.
Stand alone app is wicked!!! Thanks Igor!
Would love to load third party weird spin algorithms into it!

Ok. That’s good to know. I’m sure shipping anywhere right now isn’t easy but I appreciate the info. Thanks so much.

Igor, saving a PDF is not renamed with the chosen name, it currently always saves it as bank.pdf.
