There already is a Milton feature comparison to Doepfer, Buchla and Serge
sequencers on both the Cyndustries and Buzzclick sites.  We've got nothing
to hide!!!

Yes...this is the way to do this.

Aaaaah...With no defensiveness intended, for what's in them, they are really
affordable.  More than one other modular manufacturer has commented that the
price point is way too low.  Five circuit boards, fully loaded an IC count
of about what...25 , bunch of hand wiring. It's very close to half the cost
of a TBK and while the Serge unit does a few things Milton doesn't, there
are many features that MIlton has that the TBK doesn't.
