Haha! Meant no offense (so much so that I misspelled the word loquacious ;)), and I look forward to you getting a tensor (and every other new glitch/stutter pedal out there) and making more stop action vids! :thumbs up: ; :cloud sharting rainbows:

No offense taken.

I too would love for me to get a tensor and every other new glitch/stutter pedal out there for more stop-action visuals.
It's super fun to improvise visuals to improvised sounds. And glitch/stutter pedals are so rich and evocative for that kind of thing.

Patience now. New preorder ship date is 1/25.

I apologize that we are not going to meet the January 5th estimated ship date for your Tensor preorder.

The pre-production Tensor circuit boards were noisier than I liked in certain situations. I decided to upgrade the ADC/DAC from a portable (low voltage) Codec to a higher-performance Codec with its own, separate power supply. The new Codec has 104 dB dynamic range, -95 dB ADC THD+N, -90 dB DAC THD+N, and up to +12 dB analog gain to handle everything from quiet guitars to synths. I decided it was better to be a few weeks late than have the first batch of Tensors be noisy.

We expedited the initial set of circuit boards, but unfortunately they will not arrive this week. All of the other components are here,

Here is the current schedule:
January 11: prototype circuit boards arrive for validation
January 22: production circuit boards arrive for preorders
January 25: preorders ship

Since we missed the shipping date, when we ship your Tensor we will also send you a coupon code for 15% off a future order from our web site. Valid for 2 years on any size order.

Finally, one thing we didn't show in the preview video is that the Tensor has a USB jack for firmware updates and USB MIDI. All of the knobs, switches, and jacks send and receive MIDI continuous controller messages.

Thank you for your patience and support

An ILF pedal I can finally buy, and keep!

Yeah the depth of possibilities with a USB midi controller are pretty ridiculous. It becomes less of a pedal and more of a workstation for faux tape manipulation and glitch.

The preorder started on black friday so with the sale they were ~$250. I don't know if they're back to regular price now.

Should have a demo next week to run through (it won't be the final version. Those ship 1/25 as previously stated).

299 on their website. I guess I'll wait for that guy to sell it in the B/S/T.

Sample length is 4.8 seconds.
Time stretch ratio goes from 1:4 to 4:1.
It would be amazing if it went longer, a la Outward, but it should be pretty great either way.
