hahah funny you get a goth feel from it. As I don't see it myself, it's retro futuristic Memphis design.

Yeah, to provide alternate panels you need the funds to do so. And you'll always end up with left over stock. Besides all the new panel designs are made with Eagle (PCB making program), so I'd have to create new files for aluminum. Considering I already spent a lot of time converting to the new look, I don't feel it's worth the time and effort to add more options at the moment.

Pre-orders were shipped last week, so don't think the modules have arrived yet, give it some more time. As for morphing:

The manual states;
Morph between presets when modulating or pressing presets with the morph knob.

So when you select a preset with a press or with cv. You can have it morph instead of switch statically. The morph knob determines the morph speed.

Anywhere between instantly and about 20 minutes. There are 4 multipliers to select in the settings menu, to scale the morph knob and input. It's ranged at 5 sec, 30 sec, 2 minutes and 20 minutes.

cool, good idea with the different ranges, really covers all the bases on that front!

From the setup manual - Sequencing mode Green (0-5v) assign Value to a preset - how is this done? Inside Ellis? or does it follow 1v/o curve?

So i've got it, i actually got 3 of them. Superb module. One issue - can you please add option for deselecting automatically when i press other matrix button ? 80% of the time i want to change one parameter, not many. Deselecting every time i want to change something is tiresome especially when there is none indicator on which matrix button i am now... maybe easier is to add "blinking" light on selected matrix buttons...

To be more specific :
Currently, when going to edit mode, i edit P1, click on P2, and when i turn the knob im editing P1 & P2 together. I'd love the behavior to be :
On P2 press - leave P1 at chosen value > deselect P1 > select P2 > start editing P2 value.

Then when in Edit mode i can hold Bank button and click on matrix to add/subtract from selection to edit groups.

Hey I haven't posted on here in ages, but felt compelled to because I wanted to say that even though I love your designs from a utility and musical perspective, I am unfortunately really put off by your panel designs. The old one and even more the new one sadly. I will go so far as to risk hurting someone's feelings by saying they look very amateurish. I understand it may be an aesthetic choice and that tastes may differ of course, but please collaborate with a good graphic designer. It is perhaps a superficial thing, but it's holding this buyer back and there's likely others like me.
