Except the MoPho will be in stores and reviewed by all the usual hounds and the MFB products will only be referenced, here, Matrixsynth and AnalogueHaven.
Though DSI and MFB gear are lightyears apart. You could chuck a Mopho down the stairs and it will probably still work. The MFB stuff would be shredded.
It is strange how little information there is out there about MFB stuff. I've owned a Synth II and the original Synth Lite and somehow fell into a stellar deal on a Synth Lite II this week that I couldn't pass up (waiting for it in the post now). I've enjoyed the MFB stuff I've owned but they all had a major drawback that kept them out of my studio. The Synth Lite was the first knobby monosynth I ever owned way back in 2003 when I first got started. It was definitely a cool tool to learn on but I "upgraded" to an MG-1 in 2005 and never really looked back. The Synth II was not a giggable instrument. It wouldn't stay in tune outside of my home studio, even with an hour to warm up and settle down. I can't do that. Even the vintage analog monos I've owned did better than that! I hope the Nanozwerg is more reliable.
At these prices more people will begin to buy MFB gear just for the h**l of it. $300 for a patchable knobby analog module is peanuts. Has me thinking one of these could be a great start to that modular I've begun to think about building.
