👍👍

Ability to set rew/ff speed via microcontroller . Might mean midi control of tape speed?

Next (final) rev of all tape control / analog boards due soon. Not sure about filters etc.. but I think that includes the filters.

Excited to see the final metal cases and wood etc coming up. Have to make final decision on panel color and jack type!!

Been a lurker for some time, finally jumping aboard. Grateful there seemed to be a spot or two left in the first run. :)

There were people who wanted refunds. I'm pretty sure your "spot" made that possible for one of them.

I am still hanging in there. It will be worth the wait.

Last fall when production started back up, I took on the unfortunate task of tempering some folks excitement with the reality that none of us would actually lay hands on a TE-2 before summer of 2021. Now that the summer is quickly approaching us (and soon to pass) and the snail's pace that this project is putting along, I'd be curious to gauge what expectation you guys have that this unit will even manifest before 2022 now?

We have none of the information we’d need to make any reasonable guess about when it will be released. Anything anyone but Jim can do is talk out of their ass about things they have no clue about. We already have 55 pages of that. No need for more as far as I’m concerned. It’ll be done when it’s done.

Well. Apparently, as the 55 pages of speculation, due to pushed release dates and similar, I would say - Neither is Jim. :hihi: :hyper: :hihi:

This is one of my favourite threads ever, when I lose faith in humankind I can always return here, to see that there is still people who stays positive and optimistic over and over again, despite being let down. :love:

I don't care how long it takes. It could be another two years from now for all I care, because when it lands I will ACTUALLY have one in my hands :) as for the naysayers... they will just have to drool over the youtube videos because they ain't touchin' mine!

Considering that Jim bought a pick and place machine and a CNC machine and his hired electrical engineers to do the PCBs, programming, etc, I am neither worried about getting it nor disappointment. This thing is going to be perfect, well worth the wait.

I put in my pre-order just a bit over three years ago, so at this point it's been so long that I just hope Jim takes the time to do it right.

Not particularly stressed about stuff, just ready to play the damn thing.

Once it's all the way in and has been jamming for a long enough while, it doesn't smart the same. I concur.

I'm new to this thread and just finished reading through all the developments. This sounds incredible, I would love to use it on one of the sends on my hexpander.

Really good work, please keep any new developments coming, what a super inspiring bit of kit.

Anyone else thinking of starting off with the 104 u rack to give some room for accompanying modules?

Three years and 56 pages on a ghost. Regardless I have a feeling it’ll be worth it. Now why can’t I get on the list? No response. Is it closed?

Do you know the size of the rack required for just the te-2? Also, I'm a bit confused by the options available...are there certain customizations we need to pick of is there a "stock" te-2?
