WOW! Awesome find Rocket!

Seems like such a more resonable way of sequencing.
OP-1, RYTM, A4, CS-50, PUSH

A response from Acidlab:

Hallo John,

it will still take some time, untill I can deliver to U.S. I try to
give
the first prototypes to friends in germany for testing.

As I present the new bassline in on my webpage, I will have some units
on stock to sell.
The price will be 550 Euro + shipping 32 Euro to U.S.

Best regards

Klaus

Better pic and info from matrix synth:

Synthesis
- wellknown, acid experienced sound synthesis designed after a famous
role model... ;-)
- new, stabilized oszillator circuit
- new VCA-design with less noise

Sequencer (live sequencer!)
- sequencer must not be stopped for any operation
- 96 patterns organized in 12 banks
- 12 songs can contain 8 different patterns
- livesequencer for songs and with tap- and stepmode for patterns
- rollfunction to rotate patterns
- patternchaining for up to 8 patterns
- patternlength from 1 up to 16 steps
- up to 5(!) octaves sequencer range
- transposefunction in songmode

I/O
- Audio input that replaces the oscillator
- FM input to modulate the filter
- CV/gate and accent impulse out
- Audioout ("Männerklinke") and headphoneout

looks like it's built really well and sturdy. Like the silver one better though.

looks very interesting. this could be a solution for those who want a 303 sound and do not want to assembly a x0xb0x. But it looks like it was made by MFB :? I like the first acidlab design much more..

i love my original acidlab...
i think the programming in the new version will work to add some things i missed in the original, though i still think that the original was easy as h**l to program..
they sound pretty decent too!

The first one is easy to program...but the fact that if you make a mistake on step 31...then you have to start over is bullshit.

that's true... very frustrating!
more than that, my biggest pet peeve is that you can't replay the steps in a manner that will allow you to write the pattern down as in the original. the note knob removes that possibility. i wish there was a midi file export or something....
