the other is the rollzer and it was sort of scooped up by ciat-lonbarde as a plumbutter extension so it was remade in a Ciat-lonbarde style

the FAQ is very helpful

The output is also an input (it says for things like the shnth!)

@Meng Qi:

which Tocante did you choose? and why?

I'm planning to buy the Thyris for softer sounds

Ack!!
Which is best??? Because I can't possibly buy all three, I'll have to make a horrifying and momentous decision.

is it safe to say most of the curry chair clip is thyris (based on the markings)?

or did he layer all of them together?

I am getting the Phashi, because I love its soft sound. ;)
Thyris is saw sound, not possibly soft...

phasi is the one I'm looking at as well
I love the square waves from the shnth and the thyris I'd like to cover (to some degree) with a tetrax one day

Intriguing!

I'll be looking forward to seeing the early-adopters' demos of sound and playing style.

Having a Sidrax would probably cover the thyris soundwise, as its triangle wave based, or am I mistaken?

I loved the droning tones from the smallest Tocante in the curry chair video, is that maybe the phashi?

I can't wait to hear the audio examples of these. Old Mr Grassi is still one of my fav instruments to play, and it's because of the interface. So these could supplement the shit out of that real nice.

I did order a phashi, ever since reading "The Crying of Lot 49" its been my obsession to find a portable synthesizer for the outdoors. This seems a step in the right way.

Same.

Thanks for the dedication, bartlebooth. You sold me on the WAD, Tocante will be easy.

The older, copper look is incredible but I will say this new redesign is fantastic. I guess that might be why nobody has posted up bumming at the loss of the copper?

yeah i love the copper look too but these are wonderful in a different way. more polished i guess, but they still look like artifacts unearthed from a colony of time-travelling ancient greeks. plus these should sound better than the protos, peter said he spent a lot of time tweaking the tunings to get them to sound as sweet as possible
