Now THAT looks interesting. Can't wait to hear audio demo. I may be forced to buy something new for once. Twice, actually (new SEM - meet the new boss, same as the old boss)

Trigger ins look interesting, 8 step sequencer wouldn't be enough for me to use by itself though.
OK, I didn't realize that what the up/down switches were for. Yeah, 8 steps is hardly enough. That's why I was calling it drum "Synth" instead of machine. Yes, trigger ins AND CV input is going to be lots of fun!

maybe they finally realized they might sell more of their products if they don't give them retarded names.
I'm not a prude, but I can do without the silly names and graphics. Glad this one looks professional. I like Dave's cartoons, though. That's where his artwork belongs.

The Mungo State Zero wins my vote for best looking new product. However, no one seems to know exactly what it is. Most seem to think it is basically a VA with patch points. I've also read that it could be analog under a digitally controlled interface. The price tag is the most interesting thing of all, word is this will be $10,000. If that's true, I wonder who the target market is?

what I've gathered is that is VA with patch points, but that they send cv? thats what I understood from the video at least
No one cares, no one sympathizes,

it sounds like they don't send CV with the exceptions of the 2 audio ins... which basically makes it like the MS-20 legacy controller. For that much $$$, you would hope it could interface with other gear! The other thing is, while it remembers all the patch cable positions, how would one know what those positions were down the line? :!:

I think they were going for a sort of buchla thing, as the buchlas have patch memory so you can call up a patch, and then whatever you have plugged in overrides the preset, allowing you to get an all new sound, if you have no patch cables in the memory goes to what you had saved to the preset

if it works like that its a great system

yeah, I figured as much, but I'm saying, how do you know where all those patch cables were? Or do you just accept that once you save a sound and move on, editing saved patches will be somewhat arbitrary?

The guy was nervous as h**l, the song he was making was awful, but come on!

STAR TREK STYLE CONTROL SHOULD BE A FEATURE ON EVERY NEW PRODUCT!

The future is here. and I wants me some interfaces that suit my futuristic sentiment. and everything should smell like ozone.

That deluxe memory boy sounds great. I'd like that in a rack device. Really cool analogue delay. Yes please ;)
