Maybe knock on the door next time...you wouldn't want to catch them talking about the Aira.

Dare you to ask Dave Smith about the future of the Tempest.

VERY interested in the Waldorf 2-Pole, that's something I was waiting for quite a while now. Anyone who remembers the 4-Pole from back in the day knows that they can make pretty cool filters, and this time it seems to be a more dirty version with 2 poles which may be just the thing I need for the noise I call my music. :) Thanks for keeping us up to date, Nick and crew!
