Sounds and looks pretty good, I hope it's fully programmable without a computer... probably not.

Speaking as a new microkorg owner (second hand, I know I left it a while!) this definitely strikes me as Novation making a similar product and then adding their own spin on it.

Cannot wait to watch some more in-depth videos of this.
