  • RIP Devi's Console

    it's official. 

    don't know how to quote on this POS site, but:

    "

    Hey there,

    First of all, to all of you, thank you for your patience and support.

    I have failed.

    I have mismanaged my money and time and I don't have the resources to finish the console.

    This is what is going to happen :

    1) The Console design documents, files, and information that have been done will be released to the public.

    Half the budget of the Console kickstarter has been spent on actual Console design work, and the other half was mismanaged and end up getting eaten up by business and personal expenses over the course of the past two years.

    I understand this is negligence on my part, and I intend on making it up to every single one of you. I know that this will mean I have lost trust in a number of my supporters and fans, and I don't expect to easily gain back that trust, but I'm going to work full time night and day as long as it takes to make it up to everyone.

    Here they are : http://www.mediafire.com/download/ciz8fc7jpucilqf/ConsoleConsolidatedInformation.rar

    The design information includes the Console I, II, and III base units, PCB's, cartridge pcb's, enclosure and related circuits. All of these are either completed or in the final stage of prototyping.

    As I mentioned before, half the budget of the Console kickstarter was spent on the incredible design work by Ken Schurer of Infanem. I want to be very clear that Ken was in no way a part of the failure of this project. He was actually very close to finishing up the Console designs and if it had not been for my own mismanagement of time and money would have had it done a year ago.

    2) The ownership of devi ever : fx is being handed over to another pedal company that will be revealed very shortly.

    The past two years have proven that I am no longer capable of running a guitar pedal business properly. Between the failure of my ability to manage the Console project, the changing shape of the gear industry, and the most important thing imho : the fact I no longer have a passion for guitar gear

    MAN for that kind of thing U got to go Back to the Old boxes from back when!! In those days we would bring are AMPS to the lake and wnen U tilt the Cab down by the water U can see the ****************in DENT it made! With the waves coming off it and Everything ****************!!!!! NOwadays they all play in there Dens and home bars or watever kind of **************** they get up to

      that's sad, I guess when you're hearts no longer in it, it's time to move on. Bob you got plenty of money to burn why would you care? Also, what was this console thing she was trying to build?

          No guys she said sorry, which instantly and irrevocably washes the stink of misappropriation from all past and future endeavours.

        I am not sure how you'd get around some of the pot value issues tbh. Maybe make the pots actually control voltage sources that control vactrola of different types/ranges set by the cartridge?

          I got a few design ideas I was gonna do for it.

          The pot issue concerned me though.

          I donated $10

        totally not surprised by the kickstarter, but I gotta admit I wasn't expecting that...

          Devi has given up her business, her console, and is now trying to start something else. Along with the personal issues she struggles with I doubt she is happy.

        Its sort of a pathetic aesthetic really. Like OK we get it you like to be edgy and make everything pink and black. And what is the sentiment behind that other than hey let me get your sensory attention?

          lol 

          Textbook flakey stoner move. 

           

          What about a kickstarter to get her back on her feet again? Everyone deserves a second chance right?
