Any of our European members have any info on this? Looks very nice!

It looks like a one-off individual project. A pretty amazing one at that!

Check out the website. Several units have been produced. Operation and service manuals are available as pdf.

Looks like an Arp 2600 with the addition of 1/2 an Arp sequencer, 2 additional envelopes, a wavetable VCO, multi-mode filter, 2nd VCA, and MIDI. Exactly the additional modules I'd want to add to a 2600!

Can someone tell why this year some many companies are making a 2600? TTSH did one years ago, I know, but this seems oddly coincidental.

You're right. I have seen and heard this instrument in live performances by the developer/builder himself. That's an amazing 2600 on 'roids, if I may say so!
... why buy it for $100 when you can build it yourself for $150?

I'd love to see a Russian take on the arp 2600. Cold war panel design with Polivoks mixer and filter section, and a digital shortwave radio section in place of noise. Maybe some interesting low res digital digital oscillators, something like a mix of old waldorf wavetables plus an ESQ-1. :omg:

Were (are) you in Europe? Several performances? I've sent an email to the website requesting pricing info but haven't heard back yet. Probably expensive (and justifiably so) considering the size and build quality.

Several performances?
Twice as of yet, to be precise - during an annual modular synth meet near Idar-Oberstein where you have to bring a (at least semi-) modular synth to attend. We'll (him and me, that is) will both be attending it again this year on the last weekend in May.

"Then came the last days of May...", as Blue Öyster Cult said almost half a century ago :hihi:.
