you’re absolutely right! the 287e is already built and we’re working on its firmware. i started building 290e prototype, the schematics is very complex, 13 processors in total, sooo many analog components too

we're working hard on it, not an easy task to make an os from scratch :) really hope to make it ready along with the 287e...

needed some serious redesign, so the work is heavily in progress, electrically ready prototype is almost done, and then it comes the time for very non-trivial firmware

not exactly, but kinda close :) it is an independent module with the virtual panel instead of the real one. main purposes - midi/osc/wifi/bluetooth and dedicated connections to 283 and 287e. controlled via ipad. will also do everything that 225e does but in a proper way

287e pcb bunch is ordered, the run should be ready within a month or so.

as for 290e, we need to finish the long-lasting model 283 which becomes 15 channel midi/osc->-cv->-midi/osc wireless/wired interface, with the little help of upcoming Wormhole breakout. and then and only then i could get my hands over 290e, the work on it will start by the end of this year, i believe

this thing is called WORMHOLE, and it will be able to bind al the internal 200e processes to the outer world of midi/osc/wifi/bluetooth. coupled with the upcoming model 283, it forms the 15 channel midi/osc <-> cv/pulse interface. as for model 287e, such combination will give the ability to interchange the audio material with an ios devices and more...

ABSOLUTELY NOT! ground control is the center of the keen eco-system, and this thingy is kinda window to the usual world of max/msp, midi-sequncers and so on
