I don't want to be the sole naysayer here, but I played with this thing
for quite a while at the NAMM show and was greatly underwhelmed with the
sound. It's hard to describe what seemed dissapointing to me without
getting into the tired old "true analog dogmatism" thing and nebulous
comments about fat versus thin sound, but my first impression was that
this machine is to the modular world what the DW8000 was to the
poly-analog world (remember how excited we all were that it had a built
in digital delay?).

Did I just have a crappy pair of headphones, or what?
