If any one has any sunsyn demos I would be anxious to hear them, as well as more from the Xpander. i'll try to throw some more of the Xpander up that showcase some of what i co...

Re: Xpander Vs SunSyn vs ???

i'd love to check out a Sunsyn, came close to buying one at some point. also worth noting is that the PolyEvolver has a similar core oscillator architecture to the Sunsyn: 2 DCOs and 2 digital waveforms although it should come as little surprise that i think the Xpander sounds much, much better. btw...

Re: FS1R question...

Ok, I've understood the "logic", even though IMHO it's not as "intuitive" as it should be, maybe because I had already downloaded the editor, but did not enough time to use it yet i rearranged your response to explain your problem. the FS1R begs to be used with a software editor. with the editor yo...

A year and a half ago I found two different Craigslist ads. One for a used DSI MEK and one for a SCI Pro-One. I got both. My intention...
