After ordering it in June with a estimated July delivery date, my Folktek Conduit arrived today.I've spent the last almost two hours playing with it and I must say, having fun. It is a pretty simple device with 4 knobs and 10 touchplates. There are 4 jacks. One for audio out, audio in, cv out and cv time. The 4 knobs are for mix, feedback, time and filter cutoff. Learning to control it and use it musically should be interesting. For the time being, I'm not using any outboard effects until I get a better idea of what I'm doing. I'm running it through an old Line 6 POD I've had since 1999 and using some of it's effects. Like I said, I have been having a lot of fun making sounds and noise, but I feel a lot like I did when I first started fooling around with a Synthi AKS in my schools electronic music studio in 1972. Cool sounds, but I don't have a clue what I'm doing. I will definitely be playing with it some more today and tomorrow and will let you know how I progress with it. Can't wait to try some of my effect pedals with it. Using touchpads , you affect it differently depending on where you touch the pads and how much surface of your finger is touching it. You also get different sounds from the pads depending on which other pads you are touching at the same time. Like I said, it is fun to play.
