  1. Pretty cool. I’m interested, but my wife says I make sounds like that on the toilet, so it’s making me think about the expense. Still want it though.

  2. I agree with Red. This thing is great. That demo vid is fantastic! Not my cup of tea, but a wonderful cup of tea, nonetheless. Sounds like they did their proper development with the effects.

    It looks pretty comfortable to hold & sing into.

  3. I’m wondering, can the mic also be a regular mic with unprocessed vocals? Would be cool if it had a mix knob, to allow straight vocals along with the synth effects processed sounds.
