I hear ir only a few times. Though Holger, the guy with the PS3300,
Elka Synthex, CS80, ObMX 12 voice, etc, etc....
he has one two and sais he likes it a lot. It didn't hit me that much,
but he also have a "real" 303 also. If he thinks the 404 is a piece to
possess I trust in his oppinion quite a lot.
He sais, he likes it for its nice bass sounds and super easiness to use.
For all you modular lovers:
I heard its built pretty much "modular" like. MEans all insert points
are made by jumpers and are most easy to access. Its also thought of
being used as a part in the doepfer modular setup if needed,
