Anything goes! Inventors! Artists! Cutting edge solutions to old problems. But also non-commercial usage of record cutting. Cost- effective, cost-ineffective, nutso, brilliant, terribly fabulous and sometimes fabulously terrible ideas.

Flo is a fair person and knows very well some of his equipment who product and sells is not 100% his own patents that's the reason who share the files for personal use to the public.

Hi Sure, lets go again:

1 - "Every professional with good electronic skills knows that, Lelon electolytic caps are rediculous brand for Pro Audio."
aswer: Each person thinks of a way, if you do not like the electrolytic capacitor, buy a clean board and put the components of your preference, the manufacturer you like. I'm sure you're a professional in electronics, so the option is entirely
yours.

2 - "flozki wrote:

I Agree with you !"

aswer: I also agree, if the project was copied, cloned, stolen, please show me exactly. :wink:

3 - "Flo is a fair person and knows very well some of his equipment who product and sells is not 100% his own patents that's the reason who share the files for personal use to the public."

aswer: At no point did I question someone's personality. I repeat what you said, I do not know mr. Flo and I respect his point of view and yours too, even not agreeing.

The definition of open source is:
Open project, with 100% of shared files, which is not the case, sharing an electronic schema is not open source, because if it were, any electronics company would provide technical manuals.
90% Open Source is not Open Source. If it's to be 100% Open Source, what are the preamp board files for download?

Ok, I think we've talked too much about this, you already left your opinion, I left mine ....

Next.....

Check the MyShank blog (dated 6 months ago!) and on here. Just stating facts.

There's lots and lots of information on Vinyl Recorder, doesn't compare.

Maybe you could be the 1st actual user to review the product and give more info then the actual retailers.

Genuinely hope your purchase is better then expected and more :-)

Steven is definitely a trusted retailer so far. But the way ZEZ cutter is being introduced in the market is unfortunately poor. Finish the product first and then start selling it. I would create an official thread and make it live with live updates on the latest changes, keeping a track of all the versions, giving detailed specs and gathering users to exchange a bout their experience. I think that the ZEZ cutter is definitely a great experimental project. But it don't looks like a serious commercial alternative so far and we need to try it plus some real user feedback before judging it. And it's still unclear why Myshank removed the cutter from its website, all the pages about ZEZ are now unavailable for several day.

We are developing some last minutes parts for a best quality... That's all.
There will be some update very soon on the website... Stop panic now.
As said before, have you seen some manual about any lathe? There will be one (of course!!!!)... for the owners. If you don't have any ZEZ, you don't need any manual.
We had to see our production way to improve many things... and it takes time too. Now everything is still developed in Brazil with Ciuens, but built and assembled in France in My Shank Headquarter, yeah baby! (simple warehouse, but headquarter is so badass, right?)

Bump! Yano any first impressions to share? Looking forward to read you.

Btw I got a few questions regarding the cutter.
1- is it modular, I mean is it made to be modded or upgrade. For instance can I swap the preamp or the amp modules?
2- is the system open source? Can I get to participate and tweak the source code to adjust it to my needs, share it if I want...
3- can you sync several cutters together
4- can it cut lacquers

Peace!

Hi dude,
I can answer those questions, hehe.

1- Yes, the entire project is designed for hardware upgrades. Cutter head, preamplifier and main panel.
2 - No, the system is not open source, the code will not be shared, but with feedback from friends and customers we will adjust to everyone.
3 - Yes, you can synchronize multiple lathes via MIDI to cut the same material at the same time. But all lathes must be connected on the same computer.
4 - Yes, of course.

I know everyone is anxious, but please, wait, you'll like what you're going to see. :D

Cheers,
