DMC Series Strymon / M5 Combo Firmware

We’ve seen a huge number of players using the Line 6 M5 on their boards.  It’s a great “utility” pedal, since it can do all kinds effects really well.  We love the “Tube Drive” model, but don’t tell anyone…  The M5 does have one secret weapon – MIDI.  By connecting your Timeline and M5 together via MIDI, the DMC pedals can control both.  This means you’re free to put the M5 on the back row of your board out of the way while still being able to control it!  Here’s the video:

 

The music is by local metal band Outliar – check them out here.

No more backlog!

It is with great pleasure that we announce the following:  the pedal backlog has now been filled.  We shipped a record number of pedals in the last 2 weeks.  We will be shipping from stock or on short lead times from this point forward.

Here’s the last of the backlog, shipped today:

 

Many thanks to our customers for their patience, and we hope everyone will stick around to see all the cool stuff we have coming out in the next few months!  We’ll continue to post our in-stock units on Facebook for those interested in getting pedals immediately, so check us out over there.

September 2012 Updates

Lots of stuff happening here!  First, we moved into a dedicated workshop / office space.  This means a more streamlined process and faster turnaround times on orders, as well as the opportunity for us to create some great new stuff.

Next, we’re prototyping some new products as well as refining some of the new stuff teased earlier this summer.  The DMC iTTY biTTY boards should be here next week and we can get the first few of those shipped out to our beta testers.  Once we have some videos shot they’ll be in the store.  The loop switcher pedal + MIDI controller will be next, and then we have a couple of other things that we’ll announce in October.

Finally, we have selected winners for the T-shirt contest (yes, we know it’s really late!) and will be announcing them here and on Facebook on Monday.  Winners, just email us through the contact form with size and shipping address and we’ll get it taken care of 🙂

Thanks again to all of our customers / friends / family for making this such a good year for us at Disaster Area.  We can’t do it without you.

Big News!

After almost a year of sweating and freezing in the garage, we’ve moved into a space of our own. We have most of the equipment in the new shop and have been shipping pedals for the last few days. There are a few more things to get done (painting! desks! Ethernet cables!) but we are moving much faster on the queue than ever before. Right now we are on track to ship all current orders in the next 2 weeks! After that, we will be shipping from stock. Stay tuned for more announcements, we’ve got new stuff in the works very soon!
