    Ok, I'm leaning further and further towards the "purchased" side of things.

    I'd like to know that as well. I would love it if it could trigger the envelope.

    Well that's neat! :eeks Question is; would I use it? Hmm. Dunno. I like the creative potential.

    Totally into this one, grabbed a white one. Seems like it has a lot of interesting experimental possibilities for sure.

    The more I think about it the more I want an external trigger. This is probably just my modular synth background talking.

    I’m glad folks are excited about this. I personally don’t have a use for it, but it really looks like an “outside the box” kind of idea, which i want to support in this industry, and perhaps folks who are more clever than me can put it to good musical use. I hope they sell well, and are used to make great music!

    For those who ordered, please post clips when you get it!

    This made me have a nice daydream of Nick Drake being brought into the present and handed this and the other pedals in use here...

    So it's a volume and tremolo pedal in one?

    I think this will finally let me use my Sputnik II the way I want. The blend knob will allow me to dial in just the right amount of fuzz underneath the rest of my pedals. I don't currently use it because it takes over everything. Now I can even use the random oscillator as a slight granulation under my tone.

    I'm fairly sure there's a space for this on my "odd delay" board to manage some of the oddness. I'll know soon enough, I guess.

    hmm ... first impression had me believing it would supply a CV signal to something else; now I’m not sure it will do that

    - this is a case of thread ping-pong -

    but that’s ok it’s still awesome - hope the supply lasts just a little while , i wasn’t quite ready for a cool new Spaceman gadget :(

    Yeah, the Explorer Deluxe is the only pedal thus far with CV.

    It looks like CV in can be used in at least 3 different ways. The 3rd demo by ABOP is pretty good. But I could see a bit more possibility yet uncovered there:



    It definitely can generate its own CV. It does this via the soft switch or the audio path.

    Even though it's not something I can use, I really like the creativity he put into this pedal!

    Doesn't this video only show the CV out of the Mission Control? I haven't seen the input used yet.

    The 4th video shows the IN at about 1:11.

    What this really means to me: this is one step closer to fully midi-controlled Spaceman pedals.

    Hmmmm... MIDI doesn't seem to be within the Spaceman ethos.

    Can you explain? Spaceman are the only non-midi pedals on my board as tech advances (and I’m able to midi dirt), but they stay because of the absolute cool factor and usefulness.

    I could be wrong but I just don't see him doing anything digital. Processing or control.
