Has anyone heard back from Foxtone regarding the b-stock Lem218s? Was expecting to hear something by the end of last month, sent an email about a week ago but I have yet to receive a reply.

I spoke to them this week. There were apparently some with scratches but it wasn’t clear to me if they were actually supposed to be sold as “b-stock” units, I.e. it sounded like a miscommunication in terms of pricing between staff. In any case there aren’t any more and the regular ones will be around later in July or August.

I didn’t order that long ago, but I’m crazy excited for mine to arrive as well. I took this past couple of weeks to sell a bunch of stuff that I like, but barely use. I’ve sold my MPC Live, Organelle M, OP-Z, and Roland System 8. I ordered a Jupiter XM to replace the System 8. My setup will be centered around the Easel Command, Pro 3, XM and eurorack with a Five12 Vector sequencer tying it all together.

Very excited, too. I just got a FedEx shipping notification, from Brisbane, CA, for something that weighs 10 lbs. I imagine that's either the Command Module or the Morph. Seems a bit heavy for the Morph (light for the Command Module?) so, maybe! Reference number says SN 0027.

It's so strange. I do not have the patience to order something and wait for it but, I do have the patience to wait even longer for a store to have stock on hand so I can order it and have in a couple of days.

Woo Hoo, looks like I got SN:0025. Still bummed about the whole Lem218 situation, I talked to Wes at Foxtone in early June and I was told there would be more than enough available for the demand and I should hear back by the end of the month. Now we're in the 2nd week of July and still no word.

This is rad! So does anyone know, the only way to get the USB A Card included, you have to order directly frm Buchla and select the addition of the Morph?

I called Foxtone/Buchla and was told you can purchase the USB A separately, even if you bought the Easel Command from another vendor.

I ordered the Morph bundle as well & I was told to expect three separate shipments (EC, Morph, & USB-A chip). I would guess they are probably holding off to ship everything at once for European orders.

Congrats! :tu: :party: Looks and sounds great! Mine seems to be taking an extended tour of California destinations before heading east and is now due on Monday. Did yours come with all those cables and shorting bars?

Very exciting!

Yep - 4 bars - 6 cables - 1 TinyCable

My only observation so far that the noise circuit sounds better than any other I have heard. I’m sure this is woo, but it seems different.
