Yep, so basically we agree but he doesn't even mention EGs which seems strange to me.
BTW in my previous post I didn't even mention "polyphony", so I'm not really sure why you are sending this to me ??

The main thing that indicates that it's duophonic (apart form it now being said loud and clear by Amos), are the words "KB CTRL", "LO" and "HI", they are the real telltale signs
Duo mode could be switch where osc 2 is set to free running or to some relation to osc 1 (3rd, 5th) as on the Microbrute I believe.
This synth look very interesting and if it's not too expensive, I'll probably be getting one, however I really think that indicating "Paraphonic" instead of "Duophonic" is a big mistake even though it's correct. I mean why don't they put that word on each and every synth, why this one ? I think it's misleading.
