That is only a third of the feature set, I think? I too, want to hear more. The demo he did a thousand ages ago used all the functions. To me, it was excellent and got me on board.

I don’t think he ever did a juju demo. It’s a new product.

The source material sounds a bit congested (mix wise), plus it's mono, so perhaps not the best showcase?

When I heard the first Zulu demos it was the opposite, I wanted one badly!

@ illacov - you should get a Zulu-R and JuJu on Access Analog (online hardware):

The Analog Matrix from Access Analog - connect to analog hardware in the cloud!

Great way to test gear. Many have bought Silver Bullets after testing it on there too FWIW :¬)
If source material is a concern, I made a public ask for source material for JuJu demos, the only consideration is no compression or wacky processing on 2 bus with about -6db peak.

Care to share something I can process

And bigfurry is right. I'm only showing off the PAX circuit in this demo because I'm damn proud of it. Simulating Germanium is not easy and yes it's not extreme but it's not in solo either. Be glad to share the PAX only passes of those clips here.

Juju has mutes. Not a bypass. If you mute PAX and Induct you're back to dry.

The Distortion circuit is running at less extreme settings here. Be glad to futz it up for you, but the whole idea is frequency bent distortion in parallel is the aim.

It's Dry + PAX and + Induct. Or various combos of those 3.

Thanks

Was that in this thread? I thought I could narrow it down by just scanning his posts, but there are 430.

Run a drum loop and run a synth loop into it and turn the knobs in an extreme way.

Yes, he did something on a rock mix, a 2buss treatment. It was really good. I’ll look for it when I’m off work, but Langston surely can reference it for us

And yes, of course it’s a new product. Right there with you. He did a short demo using what I guess was a prototype.

First off, here's a short video demonstrating JuJu on a pre-recorded clip of music by Kyle Esposito.

I hope this helps shed some light on JuJu's layout and signal management.



Thanks

Sounds nicer in that vid. Anything level matched?

All 3 circuits,
PAX is being slammed by the DOA follower that makes up gain for the Klint Filter EQ. So its getting rather creamy but not "set," to distortion. Its moreso a tickly distortion but its really sweet combined with INDUCT (which is tickling transients too on the compressor side but not super slammed).

Thanks

Can you please show an a/b video that goes between Pax+induct+dry and the unprocessed signal with the volume levels evenly matched? The volume difference makes the two signals impossible to compare.

Also can we have our shipping updates?

That was my first impression with those u Tube vids. Levels were not even close. With levels matched there might not be as many oohhs and aahhhs

Is it likely we’ll see the ZULU R before the end of the year? I preordered such a long time ago expecting it for the end of 2018 and now I’m beginning to doubt it’ll come before the end of 2019. :/

Some time this year is starting to feel like wishful thinking.

Unless I'm missing something, I think this is the last update we have received, over a month ago... The posts that we do get make it seem like it's still in the design phase.

please level match the audio on the Juju demos. I thought that was common sense for demos since mostly every manufacturer/developer does it. They are totally pointless if not level matched to best ability because I can't make an objective assessment when the audio is jumping 10+ db between clips...

Last Friday @ AES I ran into Langston and had a chance to chat with him for about 20 minutes. With all the big names in the building, I thought it was pretty cool of him to take time out to speak to an ordinary Joe like myself. This is my 2nd time meeting him and I have to say his sincerity, and passion for what he does is very apparent. I'm sure some folks may not want to hear this, but I'm just calling it like i see it.
Of course I grilled him about the impending products we've all been waiting for for quite some time now. He didn't provide me any specific date, but reassured me that the wait is all but over. He said very soon.
@ Langston
Thanks for your time. It was very informative.
Keep up all the great work!
