would prefer synton style panel art but indeed this is uniquely a TiNRS instrument and no doubt a future modern classic in its own right - big ! don’t sleep

I am trying to find it now to verify but can't seem to locate where I saw them mention this. I am following for news on most of their socials... anyways 5 betas followed by 25 unit first run they are shooting for august? things change tho especially with all the production snags globally..
Ok, thanks. I'm starting to get a bit excited for this. The more I've been looking at it and listening to the TINRS folks it's making good sense and I'm starting to imagine how I'd use it. :party:

Checked but couldn't find anything there so I asked and got the reply "September?" .. so, it doesn't seem to be set in stone. :tardis:

I think the old panels are a bit boring. The TiNRS style is a bit of a happy hour hottie. :beer:
New track! Drum synthesis heavy, melodic piece where Instruō harmonàig is doing the chords. 🐡

Good name for a tune or band or whatever...

Yeah, I noticed that the dollar has gone down quite a bit.

Are you on the top of the list, btw? They'll send ut 25 units/month. I'll probably get mine in November or even December.

Yep, after registering an e-mail was sent out confirming the placement in the queue along with some general information about how the process (payment, etc) will work.

Thanks, couldn't find that but I emailed and I'm in the first batch Sept/Oct.
Will see what final cost is and how weak the $ is.
BTW: for the Fenix II/III purchase using CurrencyFair was quite a bit cheaper/better exchange rate, than bank transfer: https://www.currencyfair.com/
Perhaps there are better options now?

I wish I had the where with al to be able to bring myself to spend that much coin on a single synth.
Also I wish I had that much coin to spend on a synth period. Well I do have the money, if only I didn't
have to eat and was actually working and stuff.

yeah, figure the coast of each "module" ? and then case... shit, so the Jupiter 8 was $16,000USD adjusted from 1982.
Or you can buy two Buchla modules for the same price, hell the 296e was $4600+ !
And then it's unique and contained and portable.
Trying to talk myself into it, yet again!
As much as I love the FII+III I don't use it as much because it's of the far superior banana breed.
