The Studio 440 is in the top right hand corner.

Got it in that one that the chromatic option is not implemented yet. I would imagine you'll have either one octave on the pads or you can set up which pitches you want where.

Cool, that video confirms the samples run through the analogue filter.

How did the price jump $500 bucks between videos or did I miss something?

I just did a conversion of euros to us and it came out to 2 grand USD.
I hope I did that wrong.

No, that would be correct, but published prices and company statements say $1549 USD.

EU prices contain VAT which makes up the difference.

the more demo vids I see, of the new Elektron devices the less excited I am.
It just doesnt sound terribly analog to me. But rather it comes off as a really good rompler.
I know this is largely due to the kind of mainstream sounding patches they use (and thank god no dubstep).
But I wish these demos did more to demonstrate a range of possibilities rather than try to hit all the popular timbres.
