I might be down for one of these. I'd like the idea of them containing an effects loop so that they could incorporate FX in the DIs.

I have an old serial #24 that I rebuilt the power supply section on. It pairs up nicely with my old F-2B with a Series I/II Stereo rig( my favorite configuration) I look forward to the acquisition of the new unit in the future.

I am very interested IN-2.

I ask some points.

1: How would work as Direct Box ? Pararel for phones and 3 pins ? Active or Passive ?

2: If it is available, DS-5 with additional 3 pin out as DI is easy for gigs.

The price hasn't been established. We are just finishing up the DS-5 and then the DS-5R. The IN-2 will be after that, but I'm not ready to set a date just yet.

But it will have inputs for 2 Series I/II instruments, and will have switchable voltage.

I am going to have to opt out of this one, though I signed up a couple of years ago when the idea was first introduced.

And for posterity's sake, here's a link to the previous thread

I'm keeping track of names, and will let you know as this develops further. I'm working on the DS5R this week and so I hope to have the pricing and features for the IN-2 all ironed out by the end of the month.

I have waited so long I don't mind waiting a little more.
I have no news to share though. I hope it doesn't cost more than what I have stashed away for it.
I have been waiting for years.

I'm still working out the pricing, there's one part that's proving hard to source, but dad is still on it. Hopefully by the end of the month I'll have pricing and a schedule down, then to make it look pretty like the new DS-5!

Still working on it, DS-5R and the IN-2. The DS-5R is actually being much harder than we thought, and some of the components for the IN-2 are quite obscure, so we are looking into other components.

I promise that I will announce here on the club as actual information is available to report.

Well, it was the standard power supply. We're planning on having both the DS-5 and DS-5R in stock and then you can have either one on a new order.

Charles ,
Having had rebuilt the power supply circuit in my old IN-2 as close to original as possible I can report that the original IN-2 is not designed to do that.

However, with a different type of power source some active instrument circuits can be powered with a 1/4" TRS cable with the additional conductor.

I'm thinking about modding my DS5R to something like this. I don't need all the features, just the DIs and switchable effects loops for each channel. The biggest issue for me is the metal work (punching holes for the XLRs) as the rest of it is just soldering basic connections. I have some Reichenbach transformers just sitting around waiting to go.

Thanks Wolf,
I asked that question because on Mondays I am the "House" bassist and was looking for something that other bass players could plug into to use my rig. I have a series bass. I wonder if Alembic makes a unit that can do both.

It should be pretty trivial to build a switch box that would go before your preamp input that would select either the output of your power supply or a quarter inch input. Or even purchase a Radial or any number of other switch boxes.

Charles,
If you have an Alembic DS5R in your rack to power your Series I , the front and back audio outputs are in a parallel circuit if I remember correctly. If you wish to let someone play their bass trough your rig providing for example you have the signal output connected from the back routed on the way to the amplification , a mono instrument can be plugged into the front TS 1/4" jacks on the front of the DS5R. If you switch to mono both sides will get the same signal down 3 dB I believe per parallel mult . You just might want to unplug the 5 pin from your Series I from the front of the DS5R first. I have done this before and it worked.

Here's one for sale: Ebay link

Crazy price, but you can make an offer...

For the new units:

Would be uberawesome if they can make it so, that the functions of the rotary switch can also be switched with a momentary footswitch (through Jack outputs)
Than you can make everything midi switchable with a device like the Voodoolab GCX/Rocktron patchmate, etc.

Thanks for that Flip.
I got all excited only to be disappointed once I opened the link.
What a pity that its 110V otherwise I would be all over it (with an offer that is, probably at 30% of their asking price - tops)
Mica, please do not use the above asking price as a benchmark for future IN-2's
The on/off switch needs to be in the front of the device also. I have moved my F2-B and DS5-R switches to the front of both boxes.
