December 2019 Update
The EssenceFM Project
Dear musicians, early adopters and synth gurus,
All the patches from this video will be included in the synth, and a lot more.
Currently we have 40 patches in bank A, a GM-compatible bank consisting of 128 patches + a full FM drum kit, and about 200 voices that are used by those patches.
About the Development
The metal enclosure is prototyped and will be in production soon
Some obstacles showed up again. We had to choose a better chip for the USB-MIDI interface, and some components we selected months ago during the board design weren't available anymore. Not a big deal, we found replacement parts that are even better than the originals.
Getting an EssenceFM
Pre-orders will open this month for a limited number of units (we'll send an email when it's ready), then normal orders will take place once the synths are ready to ship, normally on February 2020.
We hope you enjoy how this project is going. Many thanks to all of you.
