hm - the video is pretty fresh. i think im gonna write them and see what their up to. interesting.
seems like HW-features will be similiar in their approach, i also put a sd-card on the board in the pic above on spi1’s pins, which i freed while getting rid of the orignal UI. like that it could also act as a sample player/recorder for bigger files, once i get all the fatfs stuff running (this is not going to be fun for me i guess)
what i like about oliviers designs is that they are bare-metal. aldought, theres nothing bad to say about teensys, its just a preference (which is going to make my life a little harder).
another thing is that i’ll follow some physical design rules. i run the little brand “seismic industries”, which aims to be eurorack conform, but just a little flatter for those who want it. I don’t put parts higher that 3mm on the backside and i use angled connectors for the power, like that i sacrifice a little physical UI space, but the things stay flat.
so far no other manufacturers adapted to it (ok, maybe most havent even heard of me/it i guess), and since everbody has 50mm deep cases so far, it doesn’t seem to be a decider for them. everybody just keeps talking about HP…
