Slurp!

Yes, I am very sure that if this first batch has sold as well as is being reported that Korg will be falling over themselves to create more.

But it's still a lot of money, and Berry are already making the black/orange rackable version. Oooh!

I want a grey one, or a blue one, I hope Behringer make a grey or blue, I think a blue one would be popular...

From what I heard Korg made 400 ARP 2600's worldwide. Take out a number for VIP's plus I understand some people know about and ordered before general release then there was not many left for distributers worldwide. I suspect most will have an allocation about 3 or 4 and the big distributers 5 or 6. I don't think they have been distributed yet to dealers. With low numbers it will perhaps keep original prices as they are.

Feedback loops? How do you mean, exactly? Or is it a secret between yourself :thumbup:

I'd assume that being semi-modular, it's the ability to patch an output back to an input near the beginning of a chain.

Or anywhere, taking the main out back into the reverb is very cool, the filter too, but adding modulation to the feedback signal before it arrives, for some reason, this synth does this very well, a bit like my VCS3.
