Hello 3DA newsletter subscribers!
GENERAL 3DA UPDATE
Whoah it's been a long time since I made a newsletter! I think I've said that already though, maybe when I wrote the previous couple of newsletters, haha. But it's true -- 3DegreesAudio has really slowed down since I took the new job at Bose here near Boston.

ABOUT THE HUE MULTI-EFFECT BATCH 2
But alas, we're still here and we're still doing some stuff. Like what? Well, for starters, we're about to begin building batch number two of the Hue Multi-FX pedal. The boards are here, parts are on order, and the cases have been in the works since late August. For some reason the cases are taking a long time again. I'm not sure what to do about that since finding a new supplier of machining services takes time and this provider, although slow, has made nice cases for us. So I guess we'll stick with them for now...
Once we receive the cases, building and testing takes a few weeks. So we're hoping to get these out in November. You'll get an email with the shipment confirmation as soon as they are ready to ship!
ABOUT THE HUE BATCH 1...
The first batch is missing the Pulse effect but the good news is that I finished it! I'll be making an upgrade package next and any Hue owner can update their Hue with bug fixes and the added Pulse effect. Note that there was a significant preset management bug in the first batch and this will also be fixed in the firmware update. Erin will be sending along the updated Pulse labels to go with the updated firmware. We'll send another communication when the upgrade tool is available!

AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT....
Have I already mentioned that New England is a beautiful place? I'm sure I have but look at these colors! Almost as many hues as the ... Hue pedal! How about that Hue pedal? To all you first batch owners; do you like it? What should we fix or add to it?
