Coming this fall. Price coming soon.

Pretty intrigued. The original Drone Commander eluded me, just as I saved up money they went out of production. Rarely do they sell used for a decent price and I don't feed scalpers.

yep, it was posted in that "new gear" thread i think.

looking forward to it as I never got a drone commander. I don't need it, but I'll probably flip something for it, been wanting one forever.

Something about that original in the ammo box tho...
When you turn the knob, it does not sound bad.

Not seeing it. I can delete this thread. Sorry, was excited. Was re-checking price on the DC2 standalones and stumbled upon this.

I agree the ammo can was a great aesthetic. I had plans of stacking it with my RE501 at one point, obviously never happened.

I don't think it's in the 2017 thread, but if it is, it doesn't matter. Lots of items have their own dedicated threads. :snax:

no no, don't. I just remember seeing it before.

2 oscillators in a box AND a low pass filter with an LFO? might kick my shapeshift mountain off :no:

draft of the manual:

http://rarewaves.net/wp-content/uploads ... 1-test.pdf

Seems to me they've missed a couple of important things for me to put it on a pedalboard, although I don't doubt it's still gonna be pretty awesome for keeping next to your synth/whatever.

misses:

* 3.5mm jack in
* when plugging in it mutes all oscillators, so you can't have your guitar in at all times and still have a drone going
* no way of muting the oscillators if nothing else is plugged in. (these two problems are easily fixable with a mute switch and having them go no matter what's plugged in)
* the footswitch seems to just stop sending audio out of the pedal

So I guess this means it's more truly the drone commander in a pedal format, not so much an fx pedal for your guitar.

Wish it had audio in sync too. The DC1 didn't either.

Pedalboard? This might push me into a real tabletop setup. Or a pedalboard for my hands instead of my feets if you want to be reductive.

Hmmmm I really hope they can make it so external audio doesn't switch the osc off. Guess it could be easily fixed w a bypass loop or a mixer, but you wouldn't be able to process your guitar or whatever w the LFO.

Either way I'm gonna buy one. :)

Also too lazy to edit.

This is gonna end up a tabletop piece for me for sure, just read the manual. This would be sick w the eurorack. Set all ya drums and leads up and make a sick drone synced with all of it. Yessssssss!

But the GAS thread gets so much churn that things can get lost easily. It's great that you created a thread for this, much easier to keep track of.

The draft manual confirms the option of squarewave or TRIANGLE waveforms for each oscillator! :yay:

Looks like their facebook page is the best source for up-to-date info? If they have a presence on IG, twitter, etc, then I haven't found it yet.

What is the point of putting this in a pedal format?
