Love this, sounds great, but I’d be very worried about reliability, you’d really have to buy two, at least.

Probably one of the most innovative sound generation principles to be introduced in recent times, but I can't really think of many things that I'd want to use it for.

This must be one of the few synths that both looks cool and sounds warm :mrgreen:

I agree about its practicality though ;)

I don’t know Martin, at the moment there seems to be a lot of "lets be different for the sake of it" synthesisers out there, also, there’s lots I don’t understand, or want to understand, and lots that just seem to have every synthesis method in there including the kitchen sink.
That’s why I like my Matriarch, it's simple, easy to understand, even the Mega FM I’m getting I can justify, it’s just a great FM synth. I think we have to be very sceptical about some things and a lot of stuff is the emperors new clothes, these things tend to become popular with young people, nothing wrong with that at all, but it’s simply that they haven’t used the stuff first time around so it’s new, and it’s a novelty.
Modular synths, lo-if this and that, off the shelf stuff to make things sound grungy, it’s ironic that most of us hated all that stuff back then, and we wanted things to be as high a quality as possible!
