Well there is only so much to say about a synth noone has tried yet, so we compare it to other synths that we own. Is that so strange?

I was watching this an wondered if anyone on here had gotten hands on at Messe? I tried the 002 at my local store and quite liked it although it wasn't finished as it was v early on. Any update too on UK price availability? Hoping my store will have one to demo too at some point..

More than the 002 is going to be way beyond my means :oops:
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

I fear you are right... Be good to see and hear one in the flesh.

I am a big fan of Paul Maddox and his passion and talent for creating synthesizers.
With the 002 retailing for $5200US, and the 008 going for considerable more than the 002, it could be near the $6000US mark, which will be a very limited market I'm afraid.
EDIT: GOOD NEWS, Sweetwater has them listed for $5495. While still quite expensive it doesn't sound as bad as Paul was first indicating.
Also, Sweetwater has them listed as shipping late summer.

I came across some very good audio and video demos of the 002 on Sweetwater.

Is the 008 shipping this month? Really like all the filter options. What the deal with the sequencer. It has 32 steps on it's 2 tracks, but what are the 12 rows? Like 12 parameters that can be sequenced?

You could always put wheels on it, use overdrive and drive it to work. ;)
Just think, you not only could listen to music on the way to work, but play it as well.
