oof. yeah. that's another thing, beyond it would have been nice to go black on steps for sharps/flats, it would be aweeeeesome to have octave up and down knobs/pads.

and i know sacrifices had to be made to keep it so inexpensive, but the pads suuuuuuck.

good thing i'm probably in the top five worst finger drummers ever! and that includes handless humans.
Where did you get one of these already? Are you one of the initial reviewers?
lol. i WISH i had pull like that.

someone here, when i was bitching and moaning about a pre-order i had placed not making the first shipment they received, pointed me to Control Voltage, who had some in stock. alas, they appear to be out now.

Ah, lucky find. I am not in a hurry, but I was curious. I have a Digitone already but this thing just looks fun.

Perfect Circuit had a decent stock on launch day as well.

I loaned mine out to a friend who is on the fence. I figure by the time he realizes it’s a good axe to have around, shops will have replenished stocks.

Here is a more or less ambient track I made with the Cycles. I'm really digging this thing and having a lot of fun with it.

The arrangement was done on the M:S then single tracked through a tube preamp. It's actually a remix of an existing own tune which was way to bad.

edit: Sorry posted in the wrong thread... :doh:
