I liked the FM7 color scheme better. Olive green, red & yeller.

Excellent...added an arpeggiator & lovely morph feature. Very aggressive sound.

I bought the upgrade, but sadly was too busy to do too much with it.

First impression though is that the new features are great, especially the morphing stuff.

Sadly they seem to have done away with the randomization feature. Dammit.

Uh, it's out now.


It's definetly better than FM7, I like the new interface especially.

Afraid I still haven't really sat down with it (relatives are over), but I think it's really an improvement.

There's a video tutorial on the website now, plus some more information about it for those of you who are interested.
