i have a few, but could do with a few more, especially if they going to stop being available.
I had a look on Amazon, and its a bit weird. Ive always stuck to well-known name brands, like Kingston, and I see 4Gb micro sdcards by them going for £10-£15! That's compared to eg a 32Gb Kingston for £5!

Meanwhile, though, there are actually quite a lot of non-name brands Ive never heard of before selling 4Gb micro sdcards for £4-5 each. Like who the f**k are Cloudisk?

If you dig down it’s a bit like how Samsung knock out most of the screens used in the world irrespective of the brand name on the TV or monitor, there’s only a few companies making the parts, but a shitload of brands.

Tell me more about how you ended up with four Doepfer crossfade/insert modules! Are they permanently hooked up to other stuff?

have a good few pedals, which id collected pre modular, so picked up two, realised they were quite useful and both send/return for pedals, as well as feeding audio in from anything, while still being able to use the outputs as mono outs.
so grabbed another couple.

Are they permanently hooked up to other stuff?
two of them have constantly had pedals in the loop, but changing around depending on mood.
the other two, one for guitar in, one for phone/handheld recorder in, and two extra mono outs.

now ive picked up the mixer, im hoping to get them all back as loops for pedals, or for using as inputs to get audio to morphagene and such :)

ok nebulae, you need to explain why you didnt bring this to my attention sooner!
sat here, for a couple of hours now, scanning through the onboard sounds, with various cv nonsense and such, through mimeophone :o

i know you said its more like clouds, but i think i was right too!
its like the best bits of both morphagene and clouds, in one box!!!
all the clouds style manipulations, over the multiple samples (slices) in a morphagene reel!!! 8)
i can see why youve grabbed two, if this is just one firmware, i did notice some others on the page, but ill stick with this for now, its bloody lovely :love:

Well reading the Mindphaser thread over at MW, looks like its going to be near impossible to get for sometime anyway. Pre-orders outnumber the number of available units. No more will be built until 2022 or 2023 due to shortages of components from Covid.

E.g. unless you pre-ordered relatively early on, you likely wont be able to get one for some time.

2. The production run is over-requested/sold. There are not enough to satisfy demand, with current numbers. If we could, we would have already been building more of them to try and satisfy demand.

3. There likely will not be any more Mindphasers built until late 2022 or early 2023. Since April, there has been a rapidly developing global semiconductor shortage. Mindphaser is seriously affected, and it more than likely means that there will not be a new run of them coming ready until late 2022 or early 2023, unless circumstances change or we manage to figure out how to grow silicon on trees (not likely)."

^^ On a positive note, there's plenty of time to decide if you really want one. The tough part will be to remember that when they actually become available again in the future. lol
