That's six things. You must like it more than you think. Did they have 
a working 24dB filter there? I didn't hear it...

They are developing a 'potpourri' module to address this. Of course, 
who knows when it'll be available.

True, but I'd like to compare the price of a comparable Serge panel 
with the Selector. Granted, a comparable Serge panel will have 
a lot more going on in terms of CV, and the Osc's have linear FM.

That's one of the reasons modular synths exist... To beat back 
the accordionists! (Apologies to Astor.)

Easier,
