Dear AE modular Community,
The year 2018 comes to an end, and I want to take this opportunity to say a big THANK YOU to all of you! It was an exciting year with really a lot of work. Over the last few months there was even so much going on that those of you who had ordered in this time had (and still have) to wait several weeks for shipment... Although I’m not happy about this fact, it nevertheless made it clear to me what an awesome community you are. No one was really complaining, instead I have heard so many understanding and encouraging words from you, it’s totally amazing!
In the meantime I got support for the production, and a big bunch of development tasks (see below) have been done, so I am looking forward to a wonderful and exciting year 2019 for AE modular! Together with your support and inspiration it will grow with a lot of new modules and mature further - and all this would not be possible without YOU!
A special thanks goes to Carsten and Felix for their incredible and enthusiastic support; you guys really rock! The heaven has sent you!
So again, a BIG, BIG THANK YOU! You are such a wonderful community!
New Standard Rack and Modules
Just in time for Christmas I have finished work on optimising and redesigning some modules that are part of the standard Rack 1 and Rack 2. In addition there are now also new variations of the cases which can now also be connected to each other.
Rack 2 now contains the trigger sequencer TRIQ164 as standard (which is the successor of the STEP10)
As before the complete systems are available in the shop now in their new configurations.
These are the new modules:
As you can imagine this was quite a lot of work, but in my opinion it was necessary to overhaul some of these fundamental modules before they are released to a much greater market in 2019 (more about this in a later post).
News from the Forum
There wasn’t a huge amount of discussion on the forum, but I was really happy to see more original performances and I am impressed on how well those artists managed to fit the AE system into their compositions!
Meanwhile The Tuesday Night Machines was tinkering again and is now controlling his AE modular with an IR remote: http://forum.aemodular.com/thread/114/receiver-module-easy-building-attenuator
Just a reminder for everyone, that tangible waves will again be at the Superbooth next year and that we will make this an event that you don’t want to miss!
Early Bird tickets are still available until 31st December at https://www.superbooth.com/en/tickets_en.html
