New version?
« on: January 20, 2023, 11:08:37 AM »
Is there a new version of the main board on the way that supports Pi 4s? Is there a timeline for availability? I'd like to buy a kit but not if a new one is right around the corner.

Not exactly "around the corner", but I'm working on v3 which will be designed to mount "B" format boards like pi4 without making enclosure mounting difficult.  It will include a lot of additional features too.  I cannot tell you when it'll be available though.  I'm sending off for the first board prototype this week, but it's very different in a few key ways and I just don't know what issues I might run into and how many iterations it will require.  Also, software for the new hardware and features will need to be written.  I have prototype code, but nothing complete yet.

It will be somewhat more expensive, but still quite a value.  Especially since feature/performance wise it will go head-to-head with MOD Dwarf in most every regard and include some additional features they (and some other commercial multi-fx) aren't likely to have for quite some time, if ever.
