I have been very happy with my new Doepfer system.  The X-treme filter
is fun. I already have a good multimode filter with my ASM-1,
so the X-treme was a good choice for me on the Doepfer.  The two
output shaping knobs really allow you to tame and/or amplify the amount
of grit that comes out of the thing.  The way the LP and HP input works
isn't exactly intuative, and that can be a good thing becuase it leads to
unpredictably fun results.

Oh, and I mentioned before, the doepfer VC phaser just sounds incredible.

Doepfer is cheap(er), easy to get, well built and great sounding.  Very little
not to like.  Funny saying it is cheaper when I spent $1800 on a basic
2-OSC, 1 filter system... but really, it is worth every penny. Designing
sounds is downright fun on this thing.
