Preorders closed: Sound of Shadows v3 - slimmer 8hp delay with chainable header

Post by jsu »

From this announcement thread.
Modular Grid listing

Only 8hp. Removes VCA from previous v2.
Chainable header on rear

Image
Specs:
  • MSRP: $149.00
  • 8hp
  • 32mm deep
  • Power consumption:
    +12V: 19 mA
    -12V: 15 mA
    +5V: 21 mA
  • Jumper-selectable +5V source (bus/board)
  • Chainable rear header to connect two or more modules together for longer delays.
Here's a quick demo video showing some of the fun to be had with the rear Chaining header:



SoS v3 Owner's Manual here.
SoS v3 Kit Manual here.

10, March 2022: Preorders are now open!
(get ready for some copypasta from the Sinner announcement)

Preorder period ends April 10th.

Preorders for the new Sinner are also open!

The v3 Sound of Shadows module is $149.00 each. (All prices USD)
Kit!
Yup, it is available in kit form as well. $109.00 each.

I'm doing things differently this time. Before, I often ended up buried in building modules and not having time to develop new ones. That sucks, so I'm trying out doing yearly batches - with the possibility of semiannual depending on demand. What this means, for now, is this is the only batch for this year.

Ordering:
Send me your order via the f(h) contact page here. Please include:
  • Name
  • PayPal email
  • Shipping address
  • Item(s) being ordered
Shipping is included for US orders, and discounted accordingly for international orders.

Important: If you don't hear back from me within 24 hours, PM me here on MW. Emails occasionally disappear into the void, it seems.

Timeline!
Preorders close on April 10th, 2022. Materials will be ordered that week, construction will begin a week later.

Is there switchable on board conversion to 5V or does it need to come from the bus?

Switchable via rear header jumpers.

Glad this (and sinner) are available in kit form, have found your kits to be easy builds, even with the SMD, nothing too crowded. So tempted to put four of them behind one panel for QSOS!

Will these new diy kits continue to be available throughout the year or just as part of this batch?

Full breakdown for both:
I'll order a certain amount for stock, plus whatever is preordered (probably maximum of 50 total). I then build the preorders, ship those, then build the rest for stock. When stock runs out, they're gone until next build season.

So both will be available until they're not.

Thanks for the clarification!

Will the front panel jacks serve to interrupt or mult when the chain header is connected via `Delay In`, `Insert In` or `Delay Out` to a second SoS?

Neither. Front jacks and rear pins are summed (mixed).

You should do a new releases bundle for the fans! Kit or assembled.

You caught me in a particular humor and gave me an idea I can't post publicly. :hmm:
Best forgotten I guess. Anyway, what did you have in mind?

Sounds good to me. Subscribers would be automatically added to the preorder lists, and get a free shirt, the stickers, and whatever other swag I start doing, for whichever modules are coming out. Shipping would be free. The rear PCB would even be signed. Subscribers would also be added to a Backers list that will be added to the website (unless you don't want it).

I could send an invoice at preorder time notifying you of what's happening, so you can opt out, if needed. The benefits would only apply to modules you commit to.

Now, if you want to do a straight-up, prepaid subscription service, I can set up a Patreon for that too.

Who wants to sign up?

Count me in.

Patreon option sounds interesting too, you could have US / worldwide tiers or something.

No other changes apart from adding the rear I/O chaining header and updating old components. The circuit is completely identical otherwise.

I'm really OCD about responding so, if you haven't heard from me, I didn't get it.
