    I have also had the pleasure of playing with the prototype. Honestly its hard calling it a prototype because it was already a polished piece of hardware. Can't wait to get my radiator so I can attach it to the rest of my live console.

    I'll third that. I've been burned by several hardware kickstarters, this one is different. The hardware is real and well polished.

    Yup! I showed one in the KS video.

    Andrew is crazy good at things like this. I would not dream of doing this without him.
    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    This is something that should put people at ease. Chris isn't one to sign on to something that is half-baked; he doesn't risk his reputation lightly. The same can be said for Adam Raugh at X-Laser. And that also applies to all the other supporters who are long-time members here on PL, including me.

    That being said, I honestly don't see any risk in this Kickstarter campaign. I am one of the people who had a chance to experiment with the Radiator at NASA's Kennedy Space Center for the Yuri's Night celebration last April. This is a real product that works, and works well. The extra features they have planned for it are great, but honestly it's already an amazing piece of hardware as it presently stands. That's why I had no qualms about jumping in on the Kickstarter. The fact that the Kickstarter price is likely to be a few hundred bucks less than the eventual retail price is just a bonus.

    This is my partner Andrew:

    For those of you who haven't made the connection yet, Andrew is "Neon Captain", and he will be joining us at SELEM this year.

    That's cool too, but just remember that you will likely end up paying more for it if you wait until they're selling at retail.

    PS: Wonder how many Radiators we'll have at SELEM next year?

That way you can do a mix of a canned show or frame and then add live elements without having to switch between projectors or switch inputs.
    If youíre into the eurorack world, Iíve got something to address SOME of that

    Here's a really quick little video showing off one of the very non-standard features of the Radiator. It's the ability to take an abstract from the shape generators and perform radial clones and translations.

    We're working hard to make this little console amazing!

    Very cool! I don't remember you showing this to me in Florida...

    Could you add oscillations to the shape before you clone it? So you'd have a bunch of mini-lissajous in a circular arrangement, for example? And what about color modulation? Is that applied before or after the cloning process? (Or can you select where in the chain the color effects are added?) So many questions....

    cloning is still a work in progress. that's really just a teaser.

    yes. cloning can be applied to anything that the shapes generators can make.

    color modulation is applied before the cloning.
