I got to see it in person at Knobcon last weekend. It was a little over a foot long. It will fit in a Eurorack format and power from it, but it also has it's own enclosure with wooden sides. I believe that Synthtopia link is correct as far as specs.

I was excited that you could program the sequencer with MIDI input as well as step through the 32-step sequence with a clock trigger in. The sequencer had buttons arranged in the shape of an octave. It had step length control, rests and ties (kind of like a TB-303). It could also do some midi to cv out with cv, gate and an assignable one as well (for aftertouch, velocity etc). I could see this being a good companion to my MoogerFoogers.

It is also great that it is one full voice with a much more polished look and operation than the Werkstat.

I think they will sell a lot of these at the price point.

Exciting stuff. :)
I think the way it does or doesn't handle MIDI will be a big selling point..

Mind you, part of me wonders if maybe I should keep my distance.
I have some Moogerfoogers and Frostwave pedals that are CV compatible, plus a couple synths that are set up for CV.. recently I'd been considering getting some things like Silent Way and CP-251 to get some more CV control happening without exposing myself to the rabbit hole of Eurorack.

BUT, i really like the look of the Modcan Quad EG and LFO's... I could make real good use of those.
So who knows, maybe this will push me over the edge..

Sounds like the interface is fairly intuitive? Stoked to hear that the sequencer is 32 steps, i tend to write in 8ths/quavers, so 16 steps never feels enough..

I'm loving the CP-251 with Mooger Foogers and expander modules for the RME. That's enough to satisfy any longings I get for modular madness for a long time.. I hope. :wink:
However there is another very small company in Asheville (Make Noise) that is making some really cool systems and modules. I had to check these out to satisfy curiosity:
