I'm a Doepfer modular owner and am VERY fond of their products. That being said,
I applaud ANY attempt to make true analogue gear -- and especially modular --
available in North America. And I don't mind the "sales pitch" at all (actually,
I didn't even think it was that salesy). I think it's fantastic if somebody's
enthusiastic about this kind of niche product that they're selling. I mean, get
real -- it's not like there's any way in hell he's going to get rich selling
anything as esoteric as an analogue modular gear these days, so if he wasn't
really into it, why would he bother?
