The price is a STEAL, and the board is going to be AWESOME!

    Thank you to ALL involved for making this new venture possible! It is a much needed niche that will be filled within the community!

    I think we all need to take a moment and collectively be grateful to the hard work of MANY different people who made this possible!

    I'll 3rd that. I will have to wait awhile before I can get one. The US board I have, will have to do. For those that made this possible, I thank you, My hats off.

    Like it matters what batteries you use.

    Anyway I don't like the idea that you can only use 2 fonts with this, I thought the whole point was to have customizable sound fonts?
    dont get me wrong I love it that theres a ready made board but sorry I think lightmeat and darkmeat suck, worse sound sets I've heard in a long while. If I want to buy a CF lite I want to change the soundfonts to something that's more pleasing to my ears.

    I was all sorts of happy and now I am not.

    That is unfortunate Sid. Well, I guess we can't please everyone. I am sure that E57 will cry himself to sleep knowing that not everyone likes the fonts he made for everyone to use. Shame.

    Sorry but with all the fonts that I have heard I feel these 2 are sub par and it wont matter cause I cant change it to one that I like.

    If you don't like it. Don't buy it. Trust me Tim's business won't hurt because of it.

    Well, we know that fonts are subjective in who likes them and who does not. I happen to like both of them (and I work with them daily) which is a big reason that they exist in the first place and I think most folks will like them too when they hear them with their own ears rather than on video. Not everyone liked US 2.x font, but that didn't stop them selling out each time they were available (and talk about a "buggy" board).

    Whoever said that the PC-L was supposed to have customizable soundfonts? You need to get a CF for that. For a PC-L to have customizable sound kinda defeats the purpose of CF wouldn't it?

    You are being really harsh on those two soundfonts. They are CF quality fonts and better sounding that any other boards out there (except the CF of course). In fact, E57 and Novastar took the time and effort to create two new soundfounds for these boards instead of re-using older fonts.

    Why are some people making this more complicated than it needs to be?

    For a year now we've known a new soundcard would be coming to TCSS...Strydur was [correctly imo] not forthcoming with too many details about what it might be, so I see no reason for anyone to have had any specific expectations and certainly not user customizable soundfonts...I never expected that so am in no way disappointed this doesnt have them.

    What it does have is two sound options which is one more than Ultrasound did [I liked Ultra's choices but if I hadnt I had no other choice at all eh? With this if you don't like one 'meat' try the other] and a board that presumably will not have the quality control [or switch? etc] issues that plagued Ultrasound, has a warranty that will be honoured - this is no small thing - if the odd bad one gets through [not so likely with MH testing EACH one not samples] and is based on Plecter quality design and with the functional nicety of the Plecterlabs standard two button control schema for reliable blaster bolt and lockup, APOP, 2 accent LEDs...etc...and a REAL LED DRIVER...and IT WILL BE REGULARLY AVAILABLE.

    Sounds to me like this is equal or better than the US 2.5 in every way and some people STILL aren't satisfied??? ??? ???

    [let me note again: ...and IT WILL BE REGULARLY AVAILABLE.]

    Since my other sites are music sites I'll just have to quote Brother Mick:

    You can't always get what you WANT, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you NEED.

    [yet again: ...and IT WILL BE REGULARLY AVAILABLE.]

    This is exactly what this hobby NEEDS and the ingratitude of the "I want it all, I want it all, I want it all and I want it now" complaints about what PC-L 'isn't' is disturbing imo.

    [one last time: ...and IT WILL BE REGULARLY AVAILABLE.]

    Hallelujah, Halle Berry, Halley's comet, Hal 9000 and HAL YEAH this is the best news in this hobby in a couple years and people need to show more appreciation not cast doubt.

    The people who are bringing this forward must wonder why they bother with some of the response they are receiving but I can only thank them.

    So thats it: "Thank You."

    My 0.02 cents Cdn...we now return you to regularly scheduled other rants already in progress...LOL
