Let’s not turn this thread into some morals ethics my values are more valuable than yours my feelings are hurt your feelings are hurt waahwaah internet pseudo safe space psychology discussion. It’s not interesting to the majority here and if you want that type of discussion take it to off topic or any of the other dedicated online forums for that.

MmmmmKayy..?

Two more weeks till the next concrete update until then we’ll get another picture of pine trees in the fog and obscure electrical components. Just enough to let us know that Jim is still alive and doing his thing.

Looks nice allthough he might have forgotten to put the light when he took the picture. However I forgot to ask what does the midi and the microusb exactly do?

I would think it's just the basics with midi on devices like this: MIDI CC control over the major parameters. Some people are really weird, and they want to use MIDI as a way to control their equiptment instead of CV.

And firmware updates via MIDI probabaly. As far as I understand there are microprocessors build in?

Ok so i get it, theres a contingent of muffwiggler right now sat analysing my post count in this thread, i get it, were near combustion, shits going down shits getting real! and i'm risking it all by just being here....

However i think its sometimes good to remember what we are waiting for! I will just put it out there that if my TE2 sounds as good as this demo then me posting this, walking the line, getting one step too close to disaster, will have been WORTH

I think the microcontroller was envisioned to essentially “push the buttons”. So midi can turn the motor on and off, enable the rec on off.. set step position? tempo sync the sequencer?
Lots of ic’s on that pcb though! DAC’s? ADC’s! multiplexers?
If it was just to push some buttons I don’t think it would be such a dense board!?? ..but I’m no engineer.
Glad to have midi control over some things, even if it’s just play/record! Will be fun to explore all the possibilities...

Does it have anything to do with the linking of 2 TE2's toghether to make them play stereo? Maybe enabling like ping pong modes etc? I dunno!

edit- i would make sense if you played them stereo you might want them to rewind or stop together in sync also.

I appreciate everyone's enthusiasm, I really do. But man, this still feels like we're at the "What color are we painting the master bedroom?" phase of the house build. I'd honestly be surprised if anyone gets an actual package sitting on their doorstep before summer of 2021.
When I wrote this last September, I was expecting you guys to fire back and tell me that I was crazy or being over dramatic, not to actually agree with me! ... But now I'm starting to think that even this prognostication was a lil too ambitious.

I periodically go to the Soundcloud page and play the demos just to try and remain positive and daydream about all the bleeps and bloops I'll be making with this one of these days. Somehow I doubt that I'm the only one who does that.

The positive way to think about this is that besides the (couple remaining) circuit boards, Jim has everything else figured out and ready to go.. I think. Cases, sides, meters, front panels, buttons, knobs etc. etc. Hoping no major revisions will be necessary but I think summer of 2121 is realistic.

Ha, I agree with you - hoping you mean 2021, however.

Whoops! Well, Jim did give 85 years as his last official timeline!

Hihi , just realized that I did the order (for the TE 1 at that moment ) nearly 4 years ago...
I am very glad that Jim is still working on the TE-2 and hope that it will be something unique.
I have a already arranged some space on my desk next to the modular for it.
I hope it will come in 21
I am relaxed

...this is the way ...

The demo sounds fantastic. Lets face it these pcb's are the meat of the TE2, now they are finalised, well, its massive step forward that one little demo.

Its within grasp now even if you still need a fucking long arm.
