What The Hell Are They Building In There?

by Chris Randall

Let me state for the record that this is not an April Fool's prank. Homie don't play dat. This industry's habit of putting out fake press releases on April 1st is right down there with genital warts and Logic on my list of favorite things about the music industry.

Those PCBs are very real. And that's all I'll say right now.

In other news, we're forging ahead with dealing with the 64-bit Boondoggle. The easiest ones are done, and now we have to figure out how to deal with the old products. This is an especially difficult process with the oldest ones, since we've been coding the plugs with this Boondoggle in mind for some time, and the younger plugs (basically from Ronin's re-release on) are able to deal with it in a certain fashion. But anything before that (roughly half our catalog) has Issues that need to be Dealt With.

The upshot is that you'll see me saying "FUCKING LOGIC" on my Twitter feed a lot more often in the next couple months.

Can I say "Geddy Lee" every time you say "FUCKING LOGIC"?

Also, if I never see another PCB it will be too soon (been soldering preamps all week....).

Looks like something to get excited about.

The PCB's not the 64 bit nonsense.

Sweet... AD hardware. Where d? i sign up!?

Calculators. Those nice big nerdy ones that do trig. Right?

Great. He's building a dongle now.

Is it a new Jupiter 8?

Nice business cards. ;)

I still want to hear your professional take on Logic's issues??? Both as a dev' and as a musician, Im really curious...

sadly doesn't look like little cards full of FX programs for the tip top audio Zdsp

i'd guess it's the PCB that is the brains to the special AD electric shaver that is designed specifically for certain types of neck beards.

So it looks like something small and the spacing at the top center looks like its for header pins as opposed to IC chips. Custom shields for Arduino?

Hardware based Ronin box with lots of fiddly knobs (I can dream, can't I)?

I pretend to know more about electronics than I actually do but I am intrigued. Since I recently took advantage of a "I still can't believe it actually happened" sale to acquire all AD effects sans those I heard were going to be unified in the near future, this seem to be a ingenious way to get me to pay you more money.

My best guess is that it's the basic of some sort of AD flavored hardware sequencer. Or a ray gun.
