Has anyone tried this?
Doesn't exist. It was a huge debacle.
doesn't exist?! but, but......it's on the internet! what a tease.......
haha That thing was quite the scam
Well, Dei Ever is still refunding backers, so people did not lose everything. It was an epic failure of a project however. Kickstarter changed a lot and is now much more strict about projects. You have to show that you have done some development and can actually reach the goals. This was not the only fiasco that kickstarter had to deal with, they learned a lot from projects like this one.
I don't know of many effects pedals that never came out but the console was a great idea and programming weird bitcrushing synths that glitch out would of been fun.
Wow. I had no idea. Seems like she got a lot of vendors interested too. I did watch her video and wondered how in the world she was smart enough to make any kind of pedal
Impractical, debacle, whatever...that would be super awesome to nerd out with. Never mind the standard I want to build my own version.
Build all of your favorite pedals on your cartridge format.
And you could reach down and swap boards between songs.
Lots of nerd points.
The guy from Infanem was the one doing all the development.
And devi sold her business to dwarfcraft devices... She is no doubt a talented pedal maker. I think many pedal makers would agree with that.
i don't doubt her ability to make pedals, i think this is a pretty cool idea. What I doubt is her marketing skills (watch her video and you will see what I am talking about)
Well, in all honestly, her pedal making abilities were not amazing. The build quality on her stuff was horrible at best. A lot of her pedals sounded the same. She did come up with fun things like using joysticks and stuff. But, whether that was revolutionary is dubious at best. I mean, it's just two axis which you could get with two normal pots. She did have interesting ideas and I think that the Dwarcraft-built stuff that still bears her name is very interesting and probably very nicely built.
I think she would be the first to admit she was not a technical genius.
She is a hack in every sense of the word. I don't mean that she didn't come up with some cool stuff here and there but it was pretty obvious she didn't really understand what she was doing. It's like she'd breadboard an existing circuit and then plunk in random components until something happened. That works I guess but I'm certainly not going to be impressed by her 'building skills' or what have you.
Dwarfcraft has said they will not be releasing this product. It's understandable. I wouldn't either.
As far as I know the schematics are open source, Devi did share them online at one point. So anyone could adopt the project or improve upon it.
Might need to contact Ken at Infanem though. As far as I know he pretty much designed this sucker.
Yeah, from what Devi wrote in her big Mea Culpa, if she had given the whole 40K to Ken instead of just half, the thing would have been a reality.
I have a really, really hard time believing the R&D cost that much. I do. I feel like it was ready to go but they didn't have enough money to put out the actual orders that were made. Which is a damn shame.
The "wasted 20K" would have probably helped with that final step. It was a true debacle. Again, it looks like she is still refunding people as of December 2014. So, hopefully everybody is made whole at some point.
Well I noticed the schematics aren't available anymore? Or they are buried somewhere??? I know she shared them because I looked over them at length. Maybe Dwarfcraft took them anyway.
Yeah, she definitely released them as part of her big initial statement on the whole mess. I wonder if they felt that they did not owe that anymore once they actually started refunding people.
Didn't she also sell off the cartridges and prototypes that did get made? There's definitely info out there. I was far too general in saying it doesn't exist.
