its got an oled screen?? fail, those things fade away into nothing after a couple of years, not going to be many vintage ones of these around.

It's hard to tell for the price. It's tiny, yet capable of so many fun things, yet also a beta, so it should be cheaper than the official release.

...but if the price is right, I'll definitely jump on it! Even sell some gear I have around if necessary...

Yeah, it's got that Mac-o-phile metrosexual appeal. :roll: Kinda like the Nano on steroids.

Nice two-fer troll there. Congrats.

Anyway, I'm on the mail list too...it's about a 1 in 45 chance of getting one I guess. Hope it's cheap if I get drawn, otherwise the non-existent money's still just going to be waiting to become eurorack modules. This thing would look wicked cool sitting next to my Casio VL-1, though. :P

I hope they do it black. Or gunmetal. I'm not a fan of the appley look.
