This is pure speculation, but... It's a digital architecture for the oscillators, so in theory, increases in polyphony are possible with clever optimization of code. Waldorf/Studiologic were able to increase the polyphony of the Sledge from 8 to 24 voices with a firmware update. It's possible Flame have done the same with the Maander.

Edit to add: I suppose it might be more accurate to say "8 voice paraphony"? If it had a standard OSC>VCF>VCA design, you would be needing more filters, as well. But the Maander has a fixed filter bank, no matter what number of oscillators or "voices". So, adding more digital oscillators doesnt require more filters to feel like polyphony has been increased... If my understanding is correct, that is...

Pretty enticing list of specs, btw. :nana:

It looks cool and sounds hot. Even with 4 voice poly it's still awesome :yay:

I wonder how interested flame / per is in MPE - this thing looks incredible and I'd jump on it tomorrow if plans were afoot for mpe integration...

That would be seriously dope. Now I know why you want to contact them :lol: . I looked on their website for any sort of contact info but couldn't find anything either man. This seems like another company who make innovative high quality instruments- and they are pretty much unreachable.

:party: :banana:
The MIDI output is handled by 2 MIDI channels total- 1 channel for the OSC and another channel for the trigger tracks (filterbank, noise, input). Note numbers can be set for each of the 14 trigger tracks on a single MIDI channel.
