Man, this is really cool! Nice work. It will be neat to see the final product. I wonder if you'll be offering that with knobs not connected to the board?

If the price is right... (Volca Bass)

I'd love to be able to layer up multiple x0xb0x sequences without sampling. I like to sequence my x0x externally most of the time anyway. I really like using several tracks of the MD, changing note length and muting/unmuting for variation.

Might end up getting me into some DIY as I'd want to separate the knobs and use something a bit larger.

I'm already imagining two x0xes in one box.
X0Xbox2?

Wouldn't that be x0x2b0x? or x0xb0x2? Also, x0xb0x squared is still only one x0xb0x. But a square makes me think of four, so reasonably, it might also be four in one box.

x0x in s0x on b0x with cl0x?

Well I was thinking of you had two xoxes in one box, the CV/gate possibilites would make that a "squared".
Especially when you include all the slide/accent stuff as well.
i'm thinking it could be two independent X0Xes, or one X0X could control the oscs from both boxes from it's sequence, while cutoff or some other param could be tied to the other sequence.


Damn I should just shut up, build that and sell it.

Well I am working on getting the millionaire industrialist/gambler thing down first.
Then I can worry about releasing products and hit singles that are featured in movies about playing hooky.

I do believe your are showing your cards early in the game, Mr. Grande. I would not do that if I were you ...
