▶ I just installed Justins/The Cargo Cult new delay plugin: Slapper & wow!!!
Instant gratification – I got a multi tap quadraphonic delay pattern running in it & totally zoned out for an hour – highly reccomended (if in doubt, grab the 30 day demo & try it!)
Wow – just four days, from when I ordered the Make Noise Erbe Verb module from Clockface Modular in Tokyo, until it was handed to me by local courier in Plimmerton, New Zealand – that is dangerously fast!! I am used to waiting patiently for a week or two for such things to arrive – even when I’ve bought modules from Australia!
The Japanese postal system certainly makes NZ Post seem pretty basic – in Japan you can choose a time for delivery of goods, including after work & into the evening… Great to see they are also super efficient with international post!
