  1. how do they add more memory with firmware update? such a magic 🙂 i remember they added 128 more preset (one more bank) to the evolver at about 2005 so i guess it’s optimization, but 8 more banks? they must have know they gonna do that from the start.
    i didn’t know we couldn’t have alternate tuning per patch, i love this feature, the vintage parameter added as a mod destination sounds even more interesting… good job!

    1. by using space they didn’t before. generally you don’t use all your resources up for rev a, unless it’s poorly planned. *shrug* just normal product planning to me.

  2. “Realtime sequencer recording” would be a great update.
    This is a good one tho – Alternate tuning per patch is sweet.
