There’s been a bunch of Instagram posts of various cassette mechanism parts lately, hopefully some assembly is going on while the pcbs’s make their way over! ?

So I guess the question now is whether or not there are some surprises in store for the incoming "rebrand" on the 15th of June? You guys think it might include the long awaited prototype and possibly an ETA? Why is 15th June significant is really what i'm wondering seems like a crazily arbitrarily chosen day haha

Ok, so the 15th date is nothing but a URL change, which i do find odd because the current one is great motomodular.com and its such a nice name too so i don't know if its already trademarked or why thats going to change but, yeah.

I’m wondering if this will fit in the moog 3 their rack. They are off by mm. Like 60hp. Kinda seems close. Would rather this be my third in that rack

You might be able to make spacers for the moogs to push one of the side panels out the few MM that you need so the space case can fit in. ?

New name is "Catskill Analog"

I'd rather have Motomodular on my TE2 but yeah i guess that name is taken already or contested?

I do like the new logo though however!

I’ve signed up for info when it becomes available.
Hopefully the new name/webpage is a signal things are getting closer

My guess is that the new identity is what fits Jim’s aesthetic for his products and company for today and the future.

i must admit, at first i thought the name was trying to weigh in on the "cats are cool" phenomenon and was reading it "cat skills" or "cats kill" and couldn't work out which way around it was and what it was trying to say cats were skilled at or what they might be killing... After a couple of google searches i realised that its probably the area name where Jim comes from... Then it made a lot more sense and my first disliking of the name soon passed when it got through to my thick skull its a placename not a cat meme. LOL

I realised this as well after some research on google.
Then again those who don't know this maybe will think the same about the cat meme thing.

I don't get it. The whole thing here with all those updates and changing brands every now and then. I mean if he cares so much about communicating he could have asked the community and the buyers what we think about a rebranding. I would have told him, man just finish the thing and focus...

Judging by his past work and all of the updates, I honestly can't think of many people that are more focused and hard working than Jim is.

In that order :hihi:

I originally wanted black faceplate, but the prospect of clear anodized aluminum for that vintage hi-fi equipment aesthetic is tempting...

I do like the new CI and also the name and must say the new page looks very good to me - the new logo is ace in my opinion. As someone who has placed an order about 1.5y ago I do question if the second rebrand in between less than 12 months alongside announcements of new/other products in developing is what I'd like to hear, see and read about. You can see this as an entitlement of a customer that already paid for a product and value that as snotty or legit. This has nothing to do with how I'm into the project of the TE-2 and appreciation for the company's work in general where we do see a very dedicated person who runs it and by all means is trying to create an exordinary well crafted product. That factor alone is worth to be part of it for me.
