Robert brought some samples of a potential new generation of AE Modular patch cables to Superbooth. They’re made from silicone instead of the plasticy rubber outside and have new tips too, which fit nicely tight into the sockets. The silicone also makes them super flexible and soft, which means they’ll not push or pull on their pins while in the sockets. Patching them felt great and I made this little video of them wiggling around, while I was on the train back home today
They look promissing! Are they equaly compatibile with two kinds of sockest (old and new)?
Yes they are. They fit quite nicely in both types.
Please be patient though ... Robert has been hand soldering those few prototypes and still needs to find a way to mass produce them to get the price to an acceptable level. But this is definitely a priority over the coming months.
I've no big issue with the current ones, so not rush... but yeah, these are a real step up - they feel great to wiggle , and a really nice positive feel when you insert them.
we also have all those new modules to look forward to too.. busy times at TW HQ
I think NightMachines had really got the hang of wiggling by the time the orange ones came out of the bag. Most funky - I could use that rhythm for one of my sequences.
I agree with thetechnobear , times are busy and very exciting. I look forward to my second expansion and I can feel that it's going to be a decent one as I've been using what I have and I know where I would like some duplicates.
Also looking forward to getting my head around better integration with some of my existing equipment, even if it's just the audio side, although the CV aspect would be interesting as well. So at least one 4IO is going in next time.
