Flipping The Script...
by Chris Randall
I think that picture tells far more than a thousand words could. After two years of R&D (a sentence fragment that in no way conveys the experience we've just been through), and coincidentally during the week of Audio Damage's tenth anniversary, we have succeeded in releasing a hardware platform for our DSP effects, and are ludicrously proud to unveil the first three Audio Damage hardware products: DubJr, Grainshift, and Errorbox. You can read about them at the Audio Damage site.
All three are 8HP Eurorack modules with ARMv7 CPUs doing the dirty work; they all retail for US$179.00, and all three are now available at Analogue Haven for immediate purchase. Analogue Haven will be the exclusive U.S. distributor for our hardware products; they will not be available via the Audio Damage website. We're currently in negotiations with a couple other distributors; we expect to have product at EquinOz within the next couple weeks. If you'd like to see Audio Damage Euro products at your favorite (non-U.S.) modular synth store, tell them to drop us a line, and we'll try to get it sorted.
We'll be rolling out audio samples in the next while (although if you're familiar with our products, you know what these sound like for the most part already) and videos in a few days. I'd like to take this opportunity to personally thank Shawn at Analogue Haven, who bootstrapped this whole operation, and my lovely wife Elle, who made boxes and power cables, tightened knurled nuts, and packed hundreds of modules. Hundreds. She is, if I'm not putting too fine a point on it, the shit.
