I think someone on here had some sort of tracker of new releases.

Edit: it was Old_Iron here: http://www.bossareaforum.com/Forum/view ... ?f=6&t=701
Has anyone heard from Old_Iron recently?

Nada. We had a PM going in December, but that's the last I heard from him. I hope he's OK!

Yeah, looks like he hasn't been online since mid December. Hope he's okay and just spending his time playing with his collection.

it would be psychologically easier to convince myself to buy one if it was under £400 :lol:
Well, GAK are doing them for £329 so I took the plunge. Should be here tomorrow 8-)

Really loving the DM-101 so far. Absolutely fantastic sounding and so much variety in the various modes.

I thought the custom mode on the DM-2w, which gave you up to 800ms delay time, was a huge improvement over the pretty short delay time of the original pedals but this gives you up to 1200ms in the Classic mode.

The multi-head mode basically gives you the functionality of a tape delay but with the sound of an analogue one, which is good fun to play about with.

I've found an error in the manual though. Both the Startup Guide and the Reference Manual say that in Non-Linear mode the Variation knob adjusts the volume of the delay intervals when it actually adjusts the delay times after the initial delay (this is correctly described on the product page on the Boss website). Hopefully they'll get the documentation corrected at some point.

Rather annoyingly I seem to have mislaid my DIN to TRS Midi cable so haven't been able to sync it up with my PC yet. Will have to have a proper hunt over the weekend.

Did anyone else ever pick one of these up?
