Wow, this thing is completely nuts!
Very cool, but I wonder what type of art you can actually achieve with this. None of the demos sound musical. I'm hearing sounds but no music...
I like it, but I don't know what I would do with it either.
I want it for sure but my brain already hurts to learn how to use it. This one is really gonna test my threshold of how deep I want to go...
Interesting move to start taking orders in april 1st.
Maybe that's the whole point? (i.e. a joke)
But it wasnt a joke. However it lead to tons of speculation...especially considering how the device does enough that a joke would make more sense than it being real.
That's why I think it was an interesting move. If it was a joke, doing it on April 1st would have been the punchline.
This has been in development for a long time. It's not a joke.
I see this useful in a lot of ways. With midi controller you can use as a multi fx unit. Program patches for pads. Loop. I want.
I am also peaked at this. I've been waiting since winter Namm '18 for the launch. I talked to the Empress guys this year and they mentioned that it was a huge R&D challenge to get it to market, which makes me a bit wary that they will have some bugs to work through even after launch.
I've been wanting to get into the modular synth thing for quite some time and this is a great way to gain a working knowledge before getting $2k deep in synth modules....and as you stated, a really interesting way throw a whole multi fx on the board with near limitless potential. I assume all the effects will be up to Empress standards so that would be pretty appealing. $500 is actually not bad considering the capabilities.
Has anyone preordered this or planning on buying?
I may be ordering tonight. just gotta check the Paypal/Reverb funds in the light of a hefty IRS disruption.
I hear you on the IRS. Oh to be young and get money back. I'm probably 2-3 weeks out before I can convince the wife
I popped for it. It shipped today.
Did you order direct from Empress or from a dealer on Reverb? I'd prefer to go through reverb to use up some reverb bucks but sent some messages to see if they actually had inventory yet.
Fresh from the source. On IG it looks like there are various timing things going on. Dealer shipments started moving out last week so the dealers could ship this week. The Empress-direct orders are going out in the order of being ordered, and it’ll take a few days to move them all out. Mine will arrive soon.
Please post first impressions
Gotta finish the workday before I plug this in...
We better not see you online later...we demand reviews!
How long is your work day dude
I’m booked until 6:30.
Still trying to figure out which button is the on-switch.
I think you just plug it in to power it up
