This looks lovely, and sounds great by all accounts.
Looking forward to trying one...

...oh, very Synthi... :thumbup:

(The cat's not impressed. Probably getting fed up with watching stunning analogue synths being used for random electrical noises.)

...think I'll have to wait for the Behringer one!

Love the "digitally controlled analogue patch/mixer matrix" 8-)

Beats inserting those fiddly matrix resistor pins ;)

I compared the matrix to the original VCS3 and to the Arturia clone. There are things missing. Oscillator 1 & 2 should have two outputs, one for each waveform. Here there is only one. How do you use either waveform? They doubled up Oscillator 3 and the S&H, so I guess you get one or the other. On the back panel there are 2 labeled CV inputs. There is nothing on the matrix for these. I would assume that they are there to plug in a sequencer, but no clue how to do that. So far they are late in posting a user manual, but so far there seem to be some serious limitations as seen from the pictures.

This is a prototype, be interesting to see if they address the issues you mention.
At this price point, it’d be churlish to omit things.
