X4 and the "XBOX"es

Postby dreamblaster » 2019-3-10 @ 13:36

Hi,
here is some news :

I have created prototypes of a new PCB : X4 :
this board is very similar to X2,
but with added line in and high quality ADC, for external effects processing.

I plan to try make a guitar effects pedal based on it. Not sure if it could have use for DOS gaming ?
I made 5 boards of X4 now, for testing purposes of different software ideas.
Not sure if I will ever make a larger batch, it could well be very limited edition, just for experiments :-)

Also working on the X2BOX and X4BOX :
Enclosure, to use your X2 or X4 standalone, over USB.

More news on trying to print these enclosures soon, in this thread.
Let me know if you are interested in X2Box
or have great ideas for X4 :-)

Like external X2 case that is compatible with X4 or future "X" project.

Huh, i've been playing guitar for 20+ years now. Started when i was 15yo, now i'm 36. :dead:

I'm curious, what kind of guitar pedal do you want to do? Just modulation effects? Amp simulation? Overdrive / Distortion?
