i'll definitely try one out once my local store gets one in, but i doubt ill be able to afford it anytime soon.

looks like Trent Reznor got his already though (pic taken from Adrian Belew's blog)

i'll definitely be picking up one of these to go with my two nords! I'm looking forward to having Microwave/XT Wavetables again. I once had an XT, and I sold it. I didnt have the attention span back then to learn it, and could never get anything useful out of it. That "pickup" demo was great, I wish...
