based on videos from NAMM and other recent announcements, it looks like he's focusing on feedback and mixing modules this year. I certainly couldn't rule it out though.

The original BL is my favorite filter. I will be interested in seeing how they alter/update it for mkII.

Lester was my first hm module and its been a staple in my rig ever since. Regarding an updated version, one of the big things I'd be interested in would be more access to the A and B clocks. Would be interesting to have some sort of output specifically for clocking/sync applications (although I realize there may need to be some divisions given the high rate the switching is done at). The notion would be similar to the synchrodyne pll... Maybe something similar to the HD xor would be cool too?... :despair:

Also, it would be nice to have decoupled switching between the variable outs of A and B separately.

I'd be into more series/parallel configuration options built-in but I'm guessing escalation d will help manage some of that... :hmm:

Other than that, it aint broke so...

From The Facebookman:

The 1973-2 refers to Tyme Safari mk2 (mk 2)?
Original Bionic Lester is 1873.
Coincidence?
Error?
Desperate speculation?

The MK2 lester is similar to the original, but features an anti-aliasing filter so it can also sound like a traditional VCF. There are several more modes of clock disruption and anti-alias switching, thanks to the mk2 illuminated buttons. The core of the module has been done for a long time, but due to an especially inspiring visit to Portland I am happy to say that I have solved the last problems of the user interface and can build the thing now. The bottom section includes the much-requested output mixer and parallel output. The mixed outputs also allow "unpatched" serial operation with the addition of another jack normal. I'll share a picture when the module is being prepared for manufacture.

Is the mk2 expected to be the same size as the original?

Hoping for the ability to do this as well.

A cv'able "circuit bent" disrupted clock double filter is just what daddy needs to fill his empty soul.
