Been hounding Karl about that but he promises no dates to me the bastard! Probably a smart thing but I'll hopefully have a chance to piss around with it tomorrow at the Source of Uncertainty fest and threaten him a little more to speed up production! lol. GOOD TIME TO DIG SYNTHS INDEED!

So... er, anyone have any actual details on this? Analog/digital? The name implies "poly", but it looks monophonic? Too bad there's not a better panel shot.

Yeah, the sounds in those videos seem monophonic to me. Until there's more information I'm not sure what there is to get so excited about besides Glen Plake manning the controls.

just played with it tonight! poly as in two notes... the ribbon is duo phonic... and two independent midi channels and CV outs and stuff. 2 osc (one a type of additive it seemed with CV over each of the 4 (5?) parts), multiples, filter, VCA's, 3 LFO's adsr (loopable), each things with its own little quirk... fully patchable... normalled stuff... SOUNDS RAD.

What the h-e-double hockeysticks!? We're you in ninja mode tonight? The knas stuff is soo delectable. The color scheme and layout is a delight. The ribbon is super fun and expressive. Get one so I can play with it.
