Yeah, a friend of mine has it, and I'm quite pleased with its sound compared to many of the new analogs out there. Knobs feel nice too.

My only gripe with it is that the only way to change the pulse width of the oscs is via midi cc, but I guess the sneaky chaps at Vermona may have done that on purpose to have more people buy their eurorack patch panel expander :roll:

I played with one when I was in Germany last year and my impression was that the sound quality was fantastic but the standard synth lacked a bit of modulation possibilities unless you added the Eurorack dock.

Yay! Glad I turned other folks onto this little box. It's completely cured me of wanting to buy another analog monosynth. I mean, sure, I'd take a Mini over it! But at $620 for this verses $2500+ for a Mini...I do miss oscillator sync and pwm. I also wish mod wheel affected lfo amount as opposed to pulse width, and wish that you could turn the oscillators completely off to play the filter in self-oscillation (though its tracking isn't 100% like a Moog's). Small tradeoffs.
