A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
A revolutionary way to boost Your sound !!
The Soulist it's not in between Your guitar and amplifier.....
it's wireless and connected to nothing else than Your amp's volume knob.
If You want that extra boost or drift smoothly back during Your live performance, "the Soulist" will give You complete control of how You want to be heard !!.
By using the side buttons up and down, this allows you to reach the desired "Rhythm" volume. As indicated you can see the light is green. By pressing the center button the light turns red. Now You can set the "Soloist" volume with no limits by pressing the right button. As soon as You press the center button again, the light turns green, and the original "Rhythm" volume returns quickly and smoothly.
The Soulist installation requires only a minute and does not need any setup, Can be easily applied to any amplifier without any invasive operation.
With Your Soulist Every time You'll play a "solo" You 'll sound like a studio recorded version !!
Take a look at the tutorial video hereinafter, and You'll see how easy it is
A) Volume down
B) Volume up
S) Channel switch
C) Stand by button (turns all comes to zero, and when pressed again the previously used volumes comes back as the where)
D) Handshaking button
Also available on our web site in French, German, Japanese and Italian languages at www.soulist.it
All parts used to build the 2 pieces (transmitter pedal and receiver) are designed and built in order to maximize the wireless transmission
Plastic parts are reinforced and ergonomically made
Push buttons built as per highest standards of resistance and reliability
Designed in partnership with the Parma University Electronic Engineering Dept.
Wireless transmission certified all over the world
Connection between transmitter and receiver guaranteed 100% safe from interferences
Communication "univoque". Multiple Soulist units might work on the same space without problems. Each transmitter will only communicate with it's own receiver
The project is not over yet !
When we were designing the electronics, another idea comes out, so, we've made the boards ready to be updated for a new step. We did not have the time to include this futuristic feature into the first production step. We need some more time to test it and make it reliable.
Anyway, all Soulist first production owners will not have to buy anything to get the new feature included.
Just to let You know what is all abut .... it's something that will let You play 100% free, because the Soulsit will switch channels by itself when You'll need it...... without pressing the button !!!!
I'm serious !!!
If you like the sound of what we’re doing but aren’t able to buy one, you can also show your support and help us along by sharing our page with your friends and family. The more people who hear about us and our project, the better!
We’ve tried our very best to keep shipping rates as low as possible and these are based on which country you live in. The rates for each country becomes visible when you choose a reward (top, right-hand side) and then select the desired country to where you want the units shipped. The prices are for express courier delivery.
Please notice that Soulist’s Kickstarter shipping rates include import duties, VAT and/or other taxes for shipments to EU countries only. Other countries may be subject to local import duties.
Often easiest solutions gives best results........
I've been playing in different bands and I've enjoyed every single minute by doing what i love the most. Just a little thing always annoyed me: the sound of my "solos". Every time I listened to records or wen I attended a "big boys" concert, the sound coming from the guitar soloist is clear and powerful at the right time and at the right volume. Obviously during recording sessions in professional studios the "effect" can be managed and adjusted during the mixing production. In case of live performances something close to that can be managed "on stage" or with a skilled sound engineer. Unluckily amateur musicians can't afford that, so, as anybody else I've tried to get close of that "sound" buying different boosters from the market, but none of them ever gave me what I wanted. The closest result to my expectations was achieved by my friend who plays the Bass ! Every time I was playing a solo he was turning my amp volume knob up and down....manually !! there would be just one problem .... he was supposed to be playing too.......and the result was not always "accurate".
So that got me thinking. How could i do that by myself with accuracy and at the right time and always at the right volume ??
The Soulist it's the solution to all of these problems !
It took me almost there years to complete the project and finally get my dream has come true. When the Soulsit was finally presented at the Frankfurt Musikmesse in 2017, the enthusiasm from the musicians and experts that saw and tested the product encouraged me to take a "bigger step". So I'm pleased to say that the Soulist is now real and ready to be shared with all my soul mate musicians all over the world.
I really hope that You all might soon enjoy the "expression freedom" that comes with playing the Soulist "ready" near to Your foot.... as I'm already doing !!! We thank You all !!!! Passera Andrea
Risks and challenges
For the last thee years we have dedicated out time and put to use all of our resources to make a musicians dreams come true. The Soulist has been designed down to the finest detail with the every intention of giving the musician what they have always wished for on stage
From the very start of this project we have chosen to produce and manufacture every single part here in Italy. We have all been present in ensuring that every single item has been tested and made accordingly to our own specifications. Prototypes have been tested live on stage and in recording studios by professional musicians for just over one year. The feedback we've had has been invaluable and has been used only to improved the final product. As you can see from our videos, right at this very moment we have every single component ready for assembly, already tested and ready for production.
Before Christmas the product will be ready to be shipped and put into your Christmas stocking.
