I’ve almost bought Quadrantid Swarm several times because it looks fun. I’m actually proud of my restraint (and am patting myself on the back as I type this). I figured it’d be best to use all the goodies I’ve accumulated this year over adding on.

Plus I’m on the hunt for guitar tone and fx tools again.

Right now I keep refreshing the delivery status on Delay Llama which still shows it’s in Greece.
Now that it's set up it's like I planned this all along- but, no it was impulsive and crazy.
Restraint is good. But this thing belongs with eccentric weirdos like me.

:hug: no worries my comment was purely a self reflection in the face of wanting (and still wanting) what you bought! 2021 was a busy, but productive and effective, shopping year for me.

I guess lump me into the eccentric weirdo group because that’s likely a 2022 purchase for me. :borg:

:o A bit?!! :hihi: 8) ... I can see, poor vurt, scrambling for a shop that has these in stock, but finding only "we expect more any day now", making a pre-order, and faithfully remaining glued to his screen, hitting F5 until receiving confirmation that one has shown up.

I wouldn't mind having one of those swarms, however, much like the make noise desktop synths, I
can not buy every cool musical gadget that exists. Currently there is much I would rather buy
with the money before it. :shrug:

I don't know that there are any 'display models' to be had. Only seen (pre-release) demo's at trade shows. It's freeze functions, are really appealing.

Ah. sorry. The nerve of them. Obviously, they are unaware of who they are dealing with. Post a link to the shop, and we'll inform them en-mass via email of your influential social media standing, and they'll come around. Or, just do that thing where you threaten to hold your breath until you turn purple, on a live youtube feed. :tu:

There ya go! :D Feels 'empowering' doesn't it? Have their logo flashing off to the side, and point at it repeatedly {bad shop, bad, bad!}, while embodying your truth. :tu:
