Everything has been delayed.
The SAMPLYR module has been sent to a few beta testers who really put it through its paces and found some issues and gave very good suggestions for additional features which we need to get added into the firmware first before sending it out to all customers. Production and order fulfilment has been seriously delayed lately because of alternating illness of staff. Development of new products has been on hold while I was organising a private move out of the apartment my partner and I have been living in for some years, which took much more time and energy than I thought.
In short .. for a small company like ours, when life gets in the way, it affects business more than it would a bigger one.
Unfortunately this affects you, our dear customers, and for that I am deeply sorry! And in order to make it up to you I would like to announce our ….

MIDI Modules from Wonkystuff
These were already covered in the July Newsletter but they are now officially for sale on the Wonkystuff website!
The new MIDI system consists of the 1U base module mb/1 which is a MIDI multiplexer: it accepts MIDI signals via a 3.5mm socket and then transmits all 16 MIDI channels on individual output sockets for consumption by the other MIDI modules in this system. It's important to understand that the outputs transmit MIDI serial data and not CV!
The other modules in this system are micro modules for which you would need a uBase to install them in your system:
The website has much more information about this, you should definitely check it out!
Also here is a short video which shows how the mco/1 works:
We at tangible waves are also preparing an extended integration of MIDI functionality into AE modular, e.g. to handle polyphony easily, and getting comprehensive modulation possibilities via MIDI.

It's always exciting to see complete albums being made with the AE Modular. And the ones below are
Chariots on Fire - 101 (Dolittle)
This was made with the AE Modular and the Yamaha TX81 for pads.
Vingerlik - Keurslager Kurt is "fingerlicking" good and shows how you can make big sounds with a small synth setup and a powerful effects pedal (in this case the Hologram Microcosm)
L+R Studies for Stereo - Keurslager Kurt shows off his new mini case with a few modules to great effect in this forum post.
