  1. The closer this kind of Eurorack module gets to being an Elektron box or a drum machine the lower the value proposition becomes…. but unlike an Elektron box for example the quality of a typical Eurorack module and the design of the interface leave a lot to be desired. It does look like the most powerful Eurorack trigger sequencer, the question is whether you can put this kind of power to use without a monster system.

  2. Dear Synthtopia it seems that preorders have been removed, presumably the dealers have pushed back on WMD for taking money up front on this product.
