As stated, I like to offer products that I think are good. When I heard the
Selector at NAMM, we were right beside their booth, and I kept floating over
there like Fred Flinstone smelling a brontosaurus burger every time they fired
up a sequence.

For the record, when I heard the Vocoder on a Future Music CD showcasing the
Doepfer Vocoder module, I (figuratively) shit my pants. I also had a Doepfer
MS-404 and loved it.

No, it was me. But I like everything about it including the looks and patching
format, not just the sound and apparent quality. That's why I said it was my opinion.

Well, I'm actually a really nice guy and AH -is- a forum for debate. But if
you post your views, others will likely post theirs too!

Speaking of things not available in North America yet, Tom Carpenter from the
UK has a very interesting modular analogue percussion system that is beginning
to grow. I hope to offer this too in 1999. What is the interest level out
there of such a thing?
