I believe it's shipping December 31st, 2018. But I could be wrong.

There's some great examples of the Zulu in my new Drum Break sample pack: https://soundcloud.com/paulcheeba/gr...s-demo/s-gBL5S

If you had you would know your question deserves a few laughs.
To be honest I only got through a few pages it’s unfortunate but on gearslutz there’s just so many pages of jibberish that I can’t imagine anyone who values their time to sensibly read hundreds of pages to try and locate a simply answer.
Sometimes I think hey if u ask someone for the time of day, it would be nice if they just gave u the time verse telling how to build a clock or try and tell you where the many places clocks are sold. So simply my question is - does anyone know if the rack version of the Zulu will be coming out soon - in a month , year , decade or never

I did a random search today on Reverb and it turns out there's a person selling one of these 15 minutes away from me. So I have the opportunity to take it off their hands. For those that own them, what do you think? Should I jump at it? The examples do sound great in Paul's drum break library.

Plus a chain of world class hardware, recorded on the best mics and preamps available :D

I still want a Zulu-R FWIW. Might just get a M-A-S and/or 542's and be done with it.

Yup, Paul is an all-star, for sure. He used something RND (maybe 542s or a MBP, but who knows) on some of the breaks. Plus REDD mics as overheads. It's an excellent library and includes individual drum hits, which I didn't expect!

I haven't thought about the ZULU or any of the Handsome Audio stuff for a while because of the issues outlined in this thread, but now I have this opportunity to grab the ZULU from someone in an adjacent city to mine who was the original owner of the unit. I feel like I need to jump at it or I'll miss out ... lol.

If it's a good price for you and in good condition, you'll be able to sell it on quite easily. If the form factor doesn't bother you, give it a pop :¬)

In addition to all the business difficulties Langston may have, it should be noted that ZULU is still a fantastic device.
I uploaded 2 files, one with ZULU as the last device on the Mixbus in front of the limiter, one without ZULU. I tried to match the level.

Because the song is an official release, it would be nice if someone thanked the artist for permission and listened to the original (Just follow the link: https://cutt.ly/Xritxp9)

Nice example - a sweet rounding off of the highs, more depth + separation, with just a tad more perceived compression.

I'm assuming that's a EX/HX + high headroom-type setting? Whatever it is, it's a tasteful way of adding a touch of glossy sheen to a final mix. Thanks for uploading.

They can't "amp" for sure.

Langston plays looser with the electronic and tape-machine vocabularies than a "schooled" electronic designer might, and some of his tales seem a tad tall, but his fan base doesn't care. People like the audio behavior of whatever it is that's inside that goop. I'm curious about both what's inside the goop and the motivation for the gooping, but it's low on my list.

And on balance, who cares what's in there or how he arrived at it? As I've said before, Alexander Fleming's penicillin saved literally millions of lives before anyone, including Fleming himself, had the faintest clue about how it worked. And Jed Clampett may have accidentally struck oil while plinkin' at varmints, but it's still oil.
I know you banged heads with Langston at times, on an engineery soundy type level. Respect for your balanced posts.
Waited ages for my Zulu when they were first mooted - got it eventually, so hope he comes through for all you guys who are waiting for gear.

Yes you're right. The setting is EX + Hi Headroom :-)

Me too. However you interpret the circumstances that brought the story to this point, two grand is a big deal for most everyone here.

I can do it, do you prefer a hi if setting (very subtle), a dirty saturated setting or something in between?

Thanks! I added a second loop.

I would like to see what it's capable of.. but nothing too over the top. So somewhere in between would be great!

I can make the 3 versions so you can decide afterwards. PM me you email, or PM me on Instagram with your mail, I’ll send it today

Where is a photograph of the Zulu R or JuJu.

Not a mockup, not a component, the device itself.

If you paid the $2K you're mad at this point, sure, but this kind of thing is counterproductive. If you didn't, well, leave it alone. Please.

"Starting with Juju
what is the best way to prove this thing is real short of shipping them?

The IG video was of the original case design. Detent pots and pushbutton switches were added to show layout.

The updated case mockup was highlighting the additional updates/changes made to JuJu's architecture.

Static clips don't seem to prove much to folks so what's better? Video with me turning knobs? More of a live in action sort of thing?"

That was 3 weeks ago. Take a photograph.

Hey, anyone using the Zulu in a patchbay? I though I read that someone had an issue with that but wanted to hear some feedback. I currently just have ties to mix bus but would rather move to patchbay... TBH, I just really don't feel like redoing cabling right now and thought I'd ask first. Thanks

Then encourage everyone you know to buy a desktop Zulu. Or several.
