It's annoying when they auto-correct company names, isn't it..? :lol:

And here is the Ub-Xa TMS, it's still a way off as they are still working in the firmware, something that has been rather slowed by current events but it's how the final will look as the tooling has now been made. Looking good.

For me, the dimensions feel "off", but I guess the physical stature of the originals is biasing me against it.

This is one where I think it would feel more balanced with 4 octaves *ducks*, largely because of the width of the performance panel and the lack of depth front to back.

Anyway, not really major niggles... :headbang:

They are now teasing a prototype of their Solina clone, the hardware is done and it's off to Germany to get the firmware done.
I will say what a packed PCB the voice board is.

Personally if only they had copied the string section from the 310U not the straight solina, there is a reason why JMJ had a 310U midified and made road ready rather than just using a solina.

Just adding a couple of new photos from Behringer's FB of the exterior of the Solina and to say to The Elf, unfortunately they have slimmed down the keyboard a bit from the original and as such have removed 49 of the original's keys.

That Solina module has my name on it. Always fancied one.

Module is perfectly fine with me! :lol:

I just bought the TB303 clone. The yellow one.

I'm sorry, I had to, I was a teenager in the 90's and grew up in the west county - lots of free parties techno/acid house clubs.

You cannot argue with £133 for a ton of nostalgia

I owned a real one for a while. Got bored of its rather limited palette when other (modern) keyboards were able to emulate it so well... Sold for positively silly money!
