  1. From a design standpoint it is very interesting to me that all the knobs and switches have completely nonsensical labels.

    Brings up many questions.

    Is this a trend?

    Are there other devices that do this?

    Is it a eurorack module thing?

    Any users of these devices want to comment on if they enjoy it, perhaps because it’s whimsical?

    Normally I can get some idea from looking at a panel what it might do. In this case though it’s impossible to even determine that it is a mixer.

    I’m not against this idea at all. I’m just wondering if it’s a trend and if customers are getting a kick out of it.

    1. The Cockpit module actually doesn’t have nonsensical labels. They’re labeled “sidechain, ch 1, ch 2” and so on. (Sidechain refers to sidechain compression, since the module has a built-in compressor.)

      Many of their other modules do have nonsensical labels, and I’m presonally not a fan because it sometimes went too far. On the BLCK_noir I could never remember if “cabin pressure” meant dry/wet mix or the effect parameter.

  2. Would be so wonderful if Endorphin.es could make a version with true stereo inputs (maybe would have to be 2hp wider), so that ducking of Clouds etc could be done without the need for clumsy adapters… so that pilot and copilot don’t have to sit on the same chair anymore 😉
