    I'm hoping it's kind of POG-ish in nature.
    :D

    I saw their new Quasar enclosures when I went to pick up my enclosures. Looks great! I called Brian right then and there to act like I had some skinny like I was a corporate espionage slueth.

    There will actually be two quasars. We are on the cusp of releasing the baby version. Still waiting on some parts, but the first batch is almost done.

    The deluxe version is still in development. It will be ridiculous.

    The octasynth is almost ready for production, but needs a couple minor tweaks, which i wont have time to do until after we are done with all of our "end of year BS"

    The fembot is kind of at a cross roads. I have put an F-ton of work and time in to this pedal, but I'm probably going to have to split it up in to two separate projects to make it usable for the average joe. The current design is just too hard to understand even for me, and way too easy to make it sound completely useless. We call this "flanger hoax syndrome" at the shop :p

    We have some other "top secret" stuff we are working on as well. I have a work bench covered in prototypes right now. I've been working on this stuff for so long, and can't wait to turn them in to actual products.

    I still think the Quasar is the best Phaser out there. I have had 5 or 6 phasers the past 2 years and just have the Psilocybe and the Quasar now. Quasar is quieter. I just posted this in another thread a few days ago.

    If the new large box Quasar is even better than the current one tell me when to send you my money Brian!!!!!

    Whoa, there's a blast from teh past.

    Any chance that you will come out with some sort of filter or synth pedal that will work with an expression pedal? I crave replacement of my Line6 FM4 (although it's cool even though it's a tad harsh/digital).

    Maybe I'll get some sort of univibe clone and run it into an envelope filter and octasynth. :bong

    The octasynth is essentially an octave down and square wave generator with an internal voltage controlled filter and amplifier. The output volume follows your playing dynamics. It is monophonic, but tracks really well. It's pretty damn convincing sounding IMHO.

    The fembot is something I have been working on since i designed the first noisebox prototype. There were some 4 knob prototype versions that were sold a couple years ago, but I kind of lost a bit of steam on development when the moog freqbox came out. Essentially the heart of the effect is that the input signal modulates a carrier frequency. It is supposed to do a bunch of other things too, but as i added more options, it kind of became too complex to actually find useful settings.

    any clips of the octasynth out there? sounds interesting but maybe too much crossover with my pigtronix mothership?
