Oh. My. God. Superb - super exciting! My Grendel Drone Commander needs this friend! :-) Figure he'll stick to his ammo-case builds, based on that front panel design?

Exciting! Love the patchable options!

Damn that looks and sounds good. I sold my drone commander because it eventually proved a bit too limited, but I really liked the sound of it, this might suit me better then.

I dont think this will be ammo case, judging by where the power or audio cable is situated, though its hard to get a decent look.

Does sound amazing, especially with the drive parameter tweaked.

Sequencer looks mysterious, would like to know more on that score.

That does sound good 8_) And how many of our fine shekels might this cost us?

Sounds damn good; very 303 like at times yet definitely it's own thing. I wonder if it can process external audio?

I hope so. I also hope it'll be battery powered like the drone commander.

I dont think it has a sequencer? I hope it does though, would make it a no brainer for me, if the price is right.

EDIT: scratch that, just saw the sequencer, also spotted an EXT in jack. If its battery powered as well, i'll be super duper happy.

Can we assume does this has the formant filter? I love the drone commander, but will this have anything really in common with it other than name? That being said, it's got my interest.

Sound great indeed. Been a long time since I like something that squelched like this does.

I picked one up last week. Great built, the sound is very acid-y. When you find the sweet spot on that filter it's pure gold. I haven't sorted out the on-board sequencer yet, but it makes the RA9 a sort of groovebox :) The cv/gate inputs/outputs are good, still playing with those. I would have liked MIDI too, but no other complaints.
