Looks nice, but too little memory :(

For the stereo we need 1+1 second for guitar effects, at least 128kb

Even stm32f407 has 192kb of RAM, about 3seconds on 16bit, with all interfaces , dsp engine, etc and it's inexpensive

No chip is perfect for everything and unless you are doing very long delays a second per channel is a lot. Most delay effects (reverb, chorus, flanger, etc.) work with rather short delay times so 2 or 3 seconds of raw delay is not really useful for these types of effects.

For my style of playing, the ideal delay length would be one that allows me to complete my performance and leave the venue before anyone hears it!

No date yet, we are working on what we expect to be the final rev. We do have a beta dev board up, similar to the board that was at NAMM but now with USB interface, rotary encoder for program selection, etc.

Assembler is moving along, prints resolved values to an output file so you can see what any equates were resolved to, memory usage info, etc. Much more info than the FV-1 assembler provided.

We will not have a booth at NAMM, decided to focus on FX Core development rather than spend the time preparing for the show. I will be there Thursday and Friday so if anyone wants to meet please let me know.

Hi Frank, development sounds like it is progressing nicely for the FX Core chip, do you have any more updated info about the new device, or any info on an appx. release date.
Cheers

Nothing to share yet, just taking longer than we would like but at least it is all forward movement.
