Thanks for these insights. As a dev, I appreciate your candor on the technical details and enjoyed the history lesson. Sighting the limitations of the platform that you mentioned, it makes it all the more impressive what you've been able to squeeze out of it.
I feel like this is a key time in saber sound history. It truly is the end of an era in high-end sound as we bid farewell to the CF as we know it and the dawn of a new age of 32-bit performance. It's like going from early 2000's flip phones to a modern smart phone in terms of potential.
It's also interesting to note that in a way, a circle closing here. Back when the open source saber movement started, the features and behavior were modeled heavily after Plecter (and NEC) examples. Then they started adding never-done-before features like NeoPixel blades(RaceManiac), SmoothSwing(Thexter), and supercharged processors (Profezzorn/Proffie). Now, we see those innovations (and more, judging from the OP) rolled back into Plecter. Round and round we go! What a ride!
Thanks for sharing Erv. Looking forward to the future of Plecter Labs and specifically the possibilities of Crystal Focus aka Buttered Toast moving forward. I love readiing your announcements and getting excited at the potential of a new CF release. Takes me back to the good old days. Call me old fashioned, but I only have room for Plecter in my life. Keep up the good work. Cheers!
