XFM Weekly Report #1

Hello, this is Endo from SONICWARE.
Thank you for your support.
I'll be sharing the development status of LIVEN XFM on this blog every week until it is shipped to those who have pre-ordered it.

LIVEN XFMをプレオーダーしてくださった方に出荷が完了するまでの間、開発状況を本ブログにて毎週シェア致します。


1. Development status and schedule / 開発状況とスケジュール

In order to improve the quality and NG rate of the LIVEN series, we are in the process of transferring the manufacturing factory from the current factory in Vietnam to the factory in Malaysia, which has acquired ISO9001, ISO14001, and ISO13485 certifications, and has a lot of experience in manufacturing electronic devices and is committed to quality control and environmental protection.

As of today, we have completed the transfer of most of the parts and molds to the Malaysian plant, and are in the process of checking the operation of the parts and adjusting the molds.

However, there has been a delay in the arrival of the molds for the silicon buttons used in the LIVEN and PLAY buttons in the LIVEN series due to a worldwide shortage of containers and a significant increase in shipping time caused by the increased volume of distribution.

The silicon button molds were scheduled to arrive at the Malaysian factory in mid-April, but they will arrive at the Malaysian port on the 12th of next week, clear customs on the 19th, and start checking at the factory around May 20th.

As a result, we were planning to ship the LIVEN XFM in late May, but now there will be a delay of about a month, and we expect to be able to start shipping around the week of June 21. I am very sorry to have to report this to those who are looking forward to XFM.

We will continue to ship the second lot around the end of June or the beginning of July as soon as the first lot has been shipped.
The third lot is scheduled to be shipped in July without any change.

We will post weekly updates on the production status on this blog and in the LIVEN group on Facebook.
If you have any questions regarding this matter, please feel free to contact us via the web.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, and thank you for your understanding.

We will continue to do our best to create products that will make you happy with your purchase, and we ask for your continued support.




そのため、LIVEN XFMに関して、5月下旬の発送を予定しておりましたが、現時点で一カ月程度の遅れが予想され、6月21日の週ごろから出荷できる見込みです。XFMを楽しみにしてくださっている方にこのような報告をしなければならないこと大変申し訳ございません。





2.Weekly Report / ウィークリーレポート

We have received some samples of XFM-related parts/materials from the Malaysian factory.


First, the case. / まずケースです。

It looks pretty good, but we need to make some adjustments to the silk and mold.


This is an individual box. / 個装箱です。

The printing on the box has also been changed since it is now made in Malaysia.



Overlay sheet. / オーバーレイシートです。

The overlay sheet is used to create sounds using all the parameters of the FM sound source in XFM.
The printing and surface coating were fine.
