  1. wauw that is cool, the device on the picture reminds me of the devices Creamware / Sonic Core were releasing around 2006 with Pro-12, MiniMax and Odyssey

  2. Black Corporation is known for building quality instruments, but near 3000 dollar for an 8 voice analog monotimbral desktop, module barebone oscillator / filter model seems to be overpriced on the current market. Why has it got MPE when there are just a few trivial modulation possibilities?
    I’d take a Hydrasynth with expander instead for 16 voices of 21st century awesome sound engine and still have 1000 dollar left.
