  1. mfb makes great sounding stuff but it would be cool if it was in a case that had the option for eurorack. stand alone boxes with more plugs sucks

  2. Dunno if I’m going to be able to resist this one. Sounds amazing and it’s priced like a Volca. Can’t imagine controlling it from the front panel is any fun at all but controlling it from a BeatStepPro or Circuit or something should be good fun.

  3. Hmm…seems interesting but a hear a very noticeable noise floor. Like very noticeable. Hopefully it’s just poor recording
