We have a local politician in this city named Nick Xenophon.

Some rather odd thoughts crossed my mind when I misread the thread title :)

I'll have this by monday so can't wait to get stuck in and programming it. From what iv'e read and heard on the website it's definitely something interesting. Will do a full review once iv'e had it a few weeks and done some more factory sounds.

It looks like the bastard lovechild of Doepfer and Access. Not a bad thing!

Damn that thing sounds pretty good! But that filter sweep... sheeesh! Steppy as h**l.

Hmm doesn't sound steppy here I just received mine for factory programming been going through the features for a couple of hours and it sounds top notch.. Its about the size of an Analog 4 the knobs have a very good feel to them i'll have a few days on it and report back but so far excellent. Oh the FX section rocks.. here's mine.

In the filter demo video around 6:02 when the filter is in self-oscillation I believe. It wouldn't be a deal killer for me though. Post up some demos when you have time!

Looks well built..given that and the memory, it kind of depends on what the price is for its placement in the market. Feature wise it looks like it is in the area of the Phattys, but if it is priced more like something in the Dark Energy / Minitaur range - then it would be quite a steal. Seeing that it is a small biz though and patch storage usually doesnt come cheap on an analogue I'm thinking it'll probably be around like 1500-2000 usd or something..
