Sorry for all the drawn out intrigue. It's annoying for us too. We were working on something and a local friend of ours hinted something on our facebook that they shouldn't have. It's just not to that point yet. We had made a lot of progress and then hit some roadblocks that have me re-evaluating some other options. That happens. The circuit does have some delay functions, but the design objective for this circuit wasn't to do "the Blackout delay" or anything definitive like that. In fact, the pedal will be more geared toward modulation type effects as was originally planned, but with some cool delay line tricks.
Obviously, we're fully concentrating on getting the Crystal Dagger out in the near term. Following that there are already some mostly-completed minor releases that will drop quickly after in the new year. The circuits for those are related to the Crystal Dagger circuit, but more stripped down and will be the lowest priced Blackout stuff to date. We also hope to introduce the Mantra V2 somewhere in there as well - which will be incorporating the popular "low-gain toggle mod".
All that to say, the big mystery circuit is still being worked on, but its not yet to where I'd even feel confident describing it as the features seem to change every time we talk about it.
