16 Presets is a nice number to me! Not enough to warrant a screen (and I like the simplicity of the grid of bank/patch buttons), but enough to decently aid live use.
I'm tempted to replace my Minitaur's 2-octave midi controller (Akai MPK25) with the Sub Phatty, for; control of itself, control of the Minitaur, or both synths at once. The only downside I see to that setup, is possibly not being able to send CC Messages to the Minitaur to access it's useful under-the-hood functions (trigger modes, note sync etc.) without a computer. Does the Sub Phatty look like it can send CC Messages at all?
If not, perhaps I could incorperate the Kaoss Pad 3 or another device into the midi chain.

Any other users on here interested in some collaborative effort on some templates?

After hearing all the available content of it, I can say this: I like the sound, but it's not the Phatty's sound I'm used to hear. IMHO the original Phatty sounds better... it's overload is very creamy and not this multidrive sterile sound.
The stability of the oscillators seem like a nice upgrade... it was not a problem for me, since I live in a very very very hot country.
Correct me if I'm wrong about it, but don't you agree with something I've said?
PS: They should've used something else for the interface, instead that "white in your face" thing. Maybe black + yellow?

Cost is the #1 thing for most of us working stiffs and the street price that Sweetwater ran out and advertised of $999 is the NICE price.
