I know it’s been quiet around here, but rest assured that the ZDS Shifter has been steadily moving towards a production-ready model!
We were initially projecting it to be available before the end of 2017 and while it certainly will be in final beta by then, I now expect to be accepting orders in early 2018.
A lot of spit and polish has gone into the interface and programming to make sure the final product is as perfect as can be!
As you can probably imagine, with a tool as flexible as the Shifter, there are a great number of setup permutations and scenarios to test — to the point where I’ve had to build out additional hardware testing rigs in order to automate it all. This has taken additional time, but it’s the only way to get it “right”. I won’t put my stamp of approval on each box until I know it can stand up to the abuse of the road and can perform 100% reliably on stage.
