FXCore coming soon?
« on: March 27, 2020, 04:45:51 AM »
Hi All

I just realized FXCore  page has been updated in the past months with some documentation and this sign:



Has anyone gone throught the docs and specs? Any insights?

Do we know when this is be released? (Frank, can you give some hint?)

Yeah I have all the docs downloaded and waiting for the dev board to be released.

It's fairly straight forward, if you want to start it , press start. You can work out the rest of the controls for yourself !

Engineering run (small production run) is going so really just a waiting game for it to complete.

Final dev board design done and currently being verified, have one on desk next to me.

Getting quotes for assembly of dev board.

In circuit programming board (basically a USB to I2C board that works with assembler) done and working. So you can have a 3-pin header on your project board to program the FXCore in circuit.

Working on docs detailing how to talk to the chip so you can write your own program loader if you want, additional app notes, etc.

We are going as fast as we can, some things just take time and we cannot rush them, others are affected by the various "shelter in place" laws so we are having to work around them.

Well geeze, now I'm excited about something I didn't even know existed 60 seconds ago :P

As an end user I'm interested how many effects in a row it can do?

That depends on how complex each is and how much memory each uses. As an example at 48KHz sample rate the rotary speaker+reverb program uses about 33% of available computational power but all the memory so you would be limited to filtering type things at that point but you would need to triple duty the pots (they are already doing double duty for the rotary and reverb controls) to get controls for the filters.

What's the max delay time?

32K samples so 1 sec at 32KHz sample rate, 2 sec are 16KHz sample rate, etc.

Does this new chip go beyond what the FV-1 can do? How?

You've got me all curious now!

Would it be possible to do granular synthesis with a chip like this? I've been trying to get my head around DSP stuff recently but it's like a dog trying to do calculus

Some datasheets and example code over at Experimental noise if your interested.

It's fairly straight forward, if you want to start it , press start. You can work out the rest of the controls for yourself !

Hi Frank, Great news. What is the position on getting a Dev board for UK developers?

Check with Profusion, they were shipped this past week so they may have received them by now.

I just emailed the sales@xnoize asking this, but what will the cost be for a dev board shipped in the US?  Interested in picking one up ;D

Board is $125.00 plus shipping which depends on where (typ $8 to $9 via USPS) and sales tax if you are in AZ.

This seems pretty fun I must say! But is there any spec comparison with the FV-1? :)
