cliff fx-1 dsp boards ?!? looks interesting...
« on: July 21, 2010, 08:45:31 AM »
seems like a good product for diy... figured i'd post the link

http://www.cliffusa.com/content-digital-effects-modules.asp?PID=81

there are modules for guitar specifically as well as mixer type, karaoke etc...
24 bit/48khz and only 2.5" x 1" or so... not sure about control implementation but seems user friendly.

Doesn't sound like you can program it though. Seems like you can just pick some presets and they put your chosen programs into the memory. Since they have to program them based on your choices, I doubt they'll be selling them in DIY quantities of 1 or 2 - I'd think their minimum would be something like 100 or 1000 units.

yeah, i think they come pre programmed. but i think that custom programs aren't mandatory. i believe the 'guitar' one  as well as the karaoke and mixer ones are pre programmed with a set of effects deemed suitable for their use, so you MAY be able to purchase smaller quantities of those without any special 'customization'. just the standard fx-1g say... maybee
your probably right though- you'd probably have to buy a bunch of em. the site is definately geared towards supplying  businesses and not individuals...

But maybe Steve at Small Bear would be into stocking them. I'm not sure what this has over the Spin FV-1, but new options are always nice. They don't seem to post what programs come in the guitar board, would be nice to know.

It sounds good, but super-generic, as you would expect this kind of thing to sound. I'm sure the audio engine is capable of quality sound, but those programs are snoozeville.

Sounds very good but the lack of being able to control any parameters with pots puts me off

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

I dont know. The reason why I'd get into DSP is to do things analog or simple digital can't do. Basic echo and distortion effects aren't super appealing.
