What is it? BAKVENDT is a granular synthesizer masquerading as a reverse delay. It can delay stuff in reverse, time stretch stuff in reverse, freeze stuff, pitch stuff upwards in octave intervals, pitch stuff downwards in octave intervals and generally make lots of narly noises. It packs quite many features in a small footprint.
What does it look like? The pedal has top-mounted jacks. I’m moving away from the stamped letter graphics as it’s way to time consuming. The pedal will be decorated with a minimalistic white plate with the parameter names on it similar to the FORM2. The plate could easily be removed if you wish to illustrate the pedal yourself. A picture and a paint sketch for reference:
Quick and dirty demo filmed at ILFEU: (Big thank you to UC and Ognoy!)
What does it cost? BAKVENDT costs 180 USD. Norwegian customers pay 1800 NOK (VAT included). Combined orders will have a higher shipping cost depending on the selected method and destination due to heavier weight (see below). Each BAKVENDT will weigh 490g (0,49kg). Before you say it; yes the shipping prices are insane.
Norway with tracking – 145,00 NOK Europe without tracking – 18,50 USD (not available for combined orders) Europe with tracking, 1 kg – 41,50 USD Europe with tracking, 2 kg – 47,00 USD Europe with tracking, >2 kg – 52,00 USD Worldwide without tracking – 23,00 USD (not available for combined orders) Worldwide with tracking 1 kg – 48,50 USD Worldwide with tracking 2 kg – 60,50 USD Worldwide with tracking >2 kg – 73,00 USD
How do I order one? I’m selling 20 units. I might do a second run if there is high enough demand. You can make a reservation by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following details:
* Your ILF username * Full name, shipping address, phone nr (phone optional) * Shipping preference (tracking / no tracking) * PayPal user ID (email address)
All reservations should be made before August 25th. After August 25th I’ll inform you if you’ve managed to make a reservation (limited quantity). In the old thread we discussed sending all North American orders in 1 package and distribute them among the buyers. This would reduce my workhours and your shipping costs. I'll request payment on September 9th. In the meantime those of you who wish to combine your deliveries can make an agreement among yourselves. Please feel free to use this thread for that purpose. Once/If you decide to combine your shipping please inform me at email@example.com with the following details:
* Full name and address for the combined shipment destination * Names of the people who wish to have their shipments combined
I’ll distribute the shipping cost among the members who wish to combine their shipments when I send out the PayPal invoices.
When do I get the pedal? The pedal is designed and ready to be produced. I’ll start production as soon as all reservations have been made. I estimate to have all units produced and shipped out before October 1st. I’ll keep you updated in this thread if there are any delays.
OK that should be it! Let me know if I forgot something!
