May Update 2: Post-Superbooth

I am in the US after Superbooth and as usual it was quite a ride. This year Julien (Stazma) joined me at the booth and we had 3 days of jamming hard on the system and talking to people. Here's an interview with Synth Anatomy where I introduce the BTMX and BTFLD and show a few more prototypes, below that is one with Les Sondiers for the French speakers.  We also have a new episode of Schlappy Patching about phase modulation with the Three Body Also Speaking of Julien he released a new Stazma album last week (I'm told there...

Posted by Eric Schlappi on

April is the big run up to Superbooth in May so we have been super busy working on various prototypes, figuring out what we are trying to show this year, and even entering the manufacturing prep phase for one of them (something for the logic subsystem). It was brought to my attention that Sound on Sound published a glowing review of the Three Body, go check it out! Also the Portland Synth and Pedal Expo is next week and we will be attending. Come and say hi, I will likely have a few prototypes in the case already.
