The Home-Built Effect Processor Express

Death“What you see before you is an OPEN DSP system. People are currently using it to create some of the most ORIGINAL-SOUNDING EFFECTS and INSTRUMENTS in the world, since its architecture is open. Its users tweak, modify, CUSTOMIZE, improve and develop the software it comes with. It’s inexpensive and can be quite portable. It runs MIDI or connects to your Palm Pilot. Some programs don’t require either to make fun and useful effects.” [via] Link.

  1. Compare it against other commercial DSP hardware. $245 is cheap for a private jet, a new sports car, and a versatile DSP that could replace a large part of your studio. Get a new guitar effect pedal by downloading new software, replace all of your digital synth machines and move your software synths to a dedicated piece of hardware, use it as a mic compressor, or set it up as a sampler. Right now most people try to do this with a laptop and USB or Firewire soundcard, but $245 beats $1400 or so for the laptop + soundcard route. That’s not even mentioning the vast array of commercial software required for each thing you want to do, where if the OSS theory applied to audio production works you can have all that for just the cost of the hardware.
