Latest News - June 2nd
You may have heard there is a derivative module from the E370 called the E352 Cloud Terrarium. This is being used to debug the hardware and software that eventually will be in the E370.
Ambient musician Robert Rich has made some E352 demos, which is just 1 VCO with 2 outputs (they can be different algorithms, but much be the same pitch).
Have a listen here, and there are more if you look over to the right side of the page.
The E352 is entering the first set of beta testers on Rev 002 hardware (works but has jumper wires). I just sent off for Rev 003 boards to be made, these should be production-worthy. Once these test OK (I'll know in 2 1/2 weeks from now) I will start on the E370 boards (the jack board is a separate board) but knowning unless I make my own errors (likely, it's kinda tricky to be perfect the first pass) the design is stable. The only realy difference in the 2 hardware platforms is the E370 needs more pins on the processor to connect to more ADc and pots and DACs. But the 'core' is the same, and much (over 85%) of the software is the same.
The E352 is not "better" or "worse" than a E370. It's 1/2 the price, 1 "voice" and does not have TZFM. For E370 backers, it's a way to make sure I have ZERO hardware surprises in the fall close to shipping. The goal is to have Rev 001 of the E370 up and running by July 20th.
The other good news is most of my panel parts are in stock: the knobs, jacks, pots and displays. I will order the optical encoders (no cheap mechanical encoder for me!) in 4 weeks.
