I don't see oscillator or filter FM. Not interested if it doesn't have these.

and here I am thinking the MFB Dominion was cool enough to warrant its own club... :hihi:

Sounds great though, especially for the size. Nothing on price yet I'm guessing?

Fully MIDI-controllable though, so with a CV-MIDI module you can still do a lot. At that price that's very nice and the form-factor is great IMO. At the very end they also show the new nanozwerg which has the delay from the discontinued Megazwerg, which is amazing.

God damn that does not look fun to use in any way shape or form.

I like the sound of MFB products but I wish he would hire a proper UI designer.

Noot.

I got the Dom1 and would rather have this ... YMMV and it should.

God that would change the game.
The ui is trash.
Sadly because it seems like it's a killer box for the price

While there are a lot of decisions that I questioned about my tanzmaus (pressing 2 buttons to start/ stop the sequence??) I got the hang of it pretty quickly.

Looks like the delay is a separate module prototype, it's not on the mockup of the nanozwerg on mfb's site nor is it listed as it's own module there.

Huh, you're right, didn't notice that. Apparently they're going to put it out as it's own module, which is great news.

Good to know, as I'm actually looking for a Tanzmaus at the moment! :hihi:

They better do something about the color of those things. It looks like pistachio ice cream from Baskin Robbins. Fugly....
