And Bionic Lester mk III.

Here it is with some more verbal elaboration - the idea of preset quad LFO and Malgorithm sounds quite exciting to me. The Bionic Lester seems to sound way more clean now but the filter mode modulation will surely be great...

I just hope that Kermit and the Malgorithm will still have the SD-card slot then... :chewie:

He certainly wants to keep the MKIII morphing preset line named consistently - Bionic Lester did also skip one version, didn't it?

Regarding the so far experience I would not be surprised if the Tyme Sefari software development would lead to an MKIII version before it gets released on the MKII. I don't have one - are there any issues with the MKII?

I guess by now I find the MKIII interesting for the developed feature set and the MKI for the rawness of design and sound. I got into Harvestman/IME relatively late mostly because the MKII line did not seem very interesting to me.

Anybody have scans of these booklets with panels of new modules that we can see in videos?

Kermit originally was released as a mk II model (there was no mk I).

Yes, agree with promised Tyme Sefari firmware update. Need it now.
It promised various improvements/refinements to fidelity, less noise, etc.

Verrry curious about the Kermit & Malgo, even though I don't have any space for them. Thankfully they won't be out for a while. BL & AJ also look great but I have enough filters & vcas at this point.

I don't have any issues with Tyme Sefari personally and still finding new uses for it. If a new firmware comes, great, if not that's fine too. I have other "clean" delays so if he were to make a mk3, it would have to be really bizarre for me to replace the mk2.

The MK1 versions are amazing and I would absolutely recommend picking them up if you can find a good deal on them. I couldn't imagine replacing my Bionic Lester/Double Andore/Tyme Sefari+ASoT MK1 (especially since my TS seems to be more of a MK1.5) and the MK1 Hertz Donut is magic and will be in my main oscillator rotation along with the HD&PH MK3.

So Bionic Lester isn't a switched capacitor design anymore? Seems kind of vanilla honestly. Guess I'll have to track down an MK1 or Bi-N-Tic

For switched cap filters, in order of usability:
Bionic Lester
Synchrodyne

I believe I saw a mk I BL in the BST; I somehow managed to control myself and not buy it.

I think BL mk III is the first of these modules we'll see. Looking forward to all of them honestly, and I will make room for them all. I've always been a big fan of Scott's design choices, but the mk III line is next level.

Regarding Tyme Sefari mk II I believe Scott had said that the hardware doesn't really need an update at this point, but he did mention a firmware update a while ago. I think time frame is always up in the air as other things come up. Personally I have considered selling mine on multiple occasions, but I always conclude it's a failure of my imagination and I just need to explore further.

I just got a Hertz Donut MKI via Reverb - unfortunately both primary frequency pots seem to be broken. :bang: :waah:

Or ist it known, that they are very wonky and only work when you turn them slowly? The modulator behaves as expected though.

The sound is great indeed and pretty much what I was hoping for. A great companion for the MKIII - I hope it is fixable...but why shouldn't it...

looks like BL will be maybe 15 hp and the others around 12 hp? Can anyone confirm or deny?

Had the Synchrodyne and Bi'n'tic and regret selling the Bi'n'tic quite regularly. Still need to try the MK1 BL

Bi'n'Tic has a lot of "dead spots". How did you work around that?

Not really related to anything, but I felt the Synchrodyne & Expander is the greatest module in modular synthesis (caveat: limited synthesis experience).
