This is one of the coolest and most innovative inventions I’ve seen in pedals, well, ever! The Console : FX platform is an open source platform developed by devi ever: fx and engineered by Instruments for a New Electric Music. The goal for this platform is to create a standard by which developers and DIY enthusiasts can produce affordable effects in small, or large quantities, with low overhead and very little capital.
The idea here is that you buy a Console hardware interface that has the ability to load up to three cartridges, depending on the model. The cartridges are your effects circuits, so you can have up to three effects and only one console. Where it gets really interesting is when you consider the possibilities of combining up to three cartridges at once if you have the Console III interface. If one fuzz isn’t quite mangling the signal the way that you’d like, you can swap it out for a different circuit in a matter of seconds. The sky is the limit with this.
