I was about to post this as well:) Great video.
Made me feel good about the unit and Neural as well!
Interesting. I like when he struggled with reattaching the encoders. UGH!
Yeah and he seems like no slouch! I would not even dare to TRY to do what he did! I really liked seeing how well built the QC actually is. Did you catch the part where he said he even took apart his refrigerator?
yeah, I had to rewind to see if he really said what I thought he said!
I asked on the YT page if he had any observations about the Wifi component since that’s the most complained about aspect these days, seems like
Did he respond? I am hoping when they get the next version out that the unit will be able to use the USB connection and the pretty poor Wi-Fi becomes a non issue. What do I know? A whole lot less than I thought I did 20 years ago!
Happy to see someone go through that deconstruction exercise. His points about heat dispersion were interesting and I am usually happier not to see a fan inside the device if it doesn’t need one. They tend to get noisy or fail over time. Interesting that his assessment was that the screen was the primary source of heat on the QC.
Would like to have heard a bit more detail on the processors but I suppose you can dig that up online.
Was a little surprised by his cost estimate of the chassis/enclosure. More expensive part than I would have assumed.
Was trying to estimate the difficulty of DIY servicing of the footswitches, if necessary, down the line. Not sure I would be too enthusiastic about doing it myself after watching the video, but it did look doable if you are intrepid.
While he was demonstrating the clip on the internal SD card, I couldn’t help but observe, as I have on other modelers, that I wish they had included a user accessible SD card for storing things like backups, user created loops, setlists, presets, captures, etc… At least the QC has cloud capabilities.
All good points you are making here. Just like Apple. Why can’t we just have an SD card? Is that too much to ask? Fear of losing control? What in the world would make a supposed cutting edge technology builder refuse to allow the freedom of a 25 year old proven technology? I just don’t get it.
Very interesting stuff. I enjoyed seeing how the “swabs” are put together. Very clever design. I see how the encoders are linked to the button/knobs but I’m still unclear about where the switch contacts are. That CNC produced box is beautiful and allows them to fit alot into that tiny chassis. It’s easy to see why the QC is on the pricey side. Thanks for posting the vid, Brian.
he said, " It is a full module inside. Maybe I should check this point again next time "
guess we’ll have to pester him to get back in there soon
My pleasure Pete. Trying to find ways to add to the forum beyond just griping.
Yes, no shortage of that!
Way cool Brian. Thanks for this.
My pleasure. I thought he did a pretty amazing job of telling what is inside.
Cool video, and it actually reveals that the QC is very well designed !
Yeah, thanks for responding. When it was all finished I felt the same way. It made me feel better about how much I paid as well. I am typing this on a new MacBook Air. They are over 2K if you get a lot of extra RAM and Storage…
