This is what dorpfer is promissing by the beginning of '96:

Standard VCO    4 waveforms (square w/var and mod. pulsewidth, saw, tri,
sin), Freq range 1Hz-5kHz
 
HighEnd VCO     similar as above but w/lin FM input, optimized waveforms
and soft-sync (autumn '95)
 
Dual Ring Modulator
 
Audio Divider (Audio IN, 4 sub-octaves adjustable)
 
VCWP (voltage contolled waveform processor)
 
Noise/Random Module   white, red/blue noise, s&h
 
Ext. Input/Envelope Follower
 
VCF1      24db Low-pass w/Moog principles, resonant, selected transistors
only
 
VCF2      12dB Multimode Filter (low, band, high and notch), resonant
(august) built w/CEM3320
 
VCF3      24dB Low-pass w/Oberheim principles, resonant (autumn '95)
 
w/CEM3320
 
VCF4      24dB High-pass, resonant (end '95) w/CEM3320
 
VCP (voltage controlled phaser) resonant (autumn)
 
Resonance Filter Bank    4-5 band pass filters w/resonance (beginning '96)
 
 
Linear VCA/Log. VCA   both build w/CEM3381, CEM3382
 
Dual low cost VCA (autumn)
 
Mixer    4 IN (audio or gate)
 
ADSR   env. gen., gate IN, retrig IN, 3 time frames
 
LFO      5 waveforms (tri, squ, up & down ramp, sin), timeframe from audio
(5kHz up to sev. minutes!!!!)
 
Shepard Generator    (HA!) beginning of 1996
 
Dual S6H module

Dual VCS (volt. cont. switches)
 
Quad sequential switch
 
Clock Divider
 
Clock Sequencer
 
Dual Trigger Delay
 
Quad Trigger Inverter
 
Dual Slew Limiter
 
Quad Voltage Inverter
8-times (or 2 times 4) Multiplier
 
Midi2CV/Sync Interface (1-ch) (autumn)
 
Midi2CV/Sync Interface (12-ch) (autumn)
