  1. This is kind of impressive, and at a great price. Funky and clunky, and sorta sexy for both reasons. Hell, any analog box under $500 is practically in impulse buy territory! No MIDI though, so hate will follow here:

  2. Saw a couple of ribbon synth’s at Musikmesse the other week, designed for German electro fans to go out into the woods any play, seems cool; but I want to know how easy it is to play the note you want, is it continuous pitch change or chromatic, and can you detune into scales?

  3. A shame about the clunky push-button note trigger, when even the Monotron can detect ribbon contact. Otherwise, quite a nice little box.
