They're doing the sequencer in Euro too:

Pity about the lack of analogue clock in and out, but you can't have everything.

The lack of analogue clock is a welcome sight as this doesn't render my Friendchip SRC totally useless.

Looking at the SEM PLUS VCF, it has an input to control the HP/LP balance via the Notch In jack. This is what the SE filter module was lacking.

Guess another module is needed for the signal mix. The SE module has filter inputs that can be attenuated and over-driven. Wonder how the SEM PLUS sounds with externally over-driven inputs.

Sounds like he's hinting at a programmer in the works.

Didn't hear a price on these. Guessing they're cheaper than their SEM Pro.

He alludes to a programmer, which is great. But who knows when any of this will actually be available.

Cool. I actually was wondering if that going to be his approach here.
