It's apparently supposed to be cheap - like £100-£150, and if so, they will sell a bucketload of them, especially as it integrates into the modular world...

Oh, they will almost certainly sell by the bucket load.

Looks like Duplo. But for that price I'd probably buy one on a whim after a couple of pints, I haven't had a decent doorstop since the old Microkorg. :D

Not my bag either, but if the price is right it will sell. Good luck to them.

To be fair, I do have the vocoder, MS-101, D, and RD-8 and am quite happy with them. The teller will be build quality on this I think if it's going to be the price mentioned above. Though, the Crave is listed at £140... The D feels pretty solid except the wiggly switches, the MS is about the same build as the original really, the vocoder is very solid, and the RD-8 is fine with its plastic top but the main gripe I have is the clock in/out minijacks, they're dreadful. This new 303 thing looks to have the top-mounted jacks like on the D, which are better than the (presumably horizontally mounted) RD-8 ones. The knobs on all these seem pretty solid though, which is where the TD-3 is going to get its action I expect.

I've got the boutique TB-03, which does the job well enough for me, so I don't need this one, probably...

Thomann now have the TD-3 up on their website, with a supposed delivery in 2-3 weeks, although I'm guessing that might change. Also there are blue and red versions as well as the original silver (although at the time of posting the sliver version is not on the Thomann website).
Pricing wise we are looking at ~150€

Seems to have been removed?!

Yep, for that price it will appeal to a lot of people.

Some more Midas related info,
Firstly the new hub 4 designed with the DP48 in mind can also support their new DL8 stagebox which is powered via PoE, so it only needs one cable back to the mothership, great for putting these small AES50 boxes wherever you need without worrying about an extra power cable.

More interesting is there new Stageconnect system, this allows 32 channels of 24/48 audio in many configurations (so I believe 16 channels each way is possible at the same time) at 0.5ms latency plus 18W of power down a SINGLE 3 pin standard XLR microphone/DMX cable. Plus it will be publicly available free of charge for other companies/users to use and implement into there products. Neat eh?

Found this interesing comparison between the Berry Pro-One and an original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4LN3BZGrog

Looks like they've pretty much done as good a job with replicating the sound as they did with the Model-D :thumbup:

I've long spoken about how the Pro-One is my favourite bass synth, how super-fast its envelopes are, and just how incredibly flexible it is. If I didn't have the real thing I'd be beating down doors to get this. I may still get one for the live rig, but I can wait a while until the potential gate bug is fixed.

It prompted me to contact my preferred supplier :-)

They said that they don't list stuff from Behringer until it's released these days, as the delivery dates have been unreliable in the past, but they'll appear when they have them so I shall be keeping an eye out.

I sold my Pro1 in 1988 for £70.
