I love it too, but it might be going somewhere for me. Not entirely sure yet. I have a feeling that I like it so much because it's my first synth and have nothing to compare it to. One of my big beefs so far is value-jumping. Is there any solution to this as far as anyone knows? I feel like it's a limitation of the synth because of dually assigned knobs. I'm also realizing that I don't like midi all that much in general.
Anyway, playing around with this has given me a vision for an analog modeling synthesizer, so here it goes:
-A 1080P LCD screen with an iPod-style jog wheel for browsing the menu. Or maybe even a touchscreen. Idk.
-The LCD is dedicated to utilities, global functions, mod matrix, envelopes, and displaying values only. Everything else has a dedicated control.
-Endless-encoders for every parameter. And one function per knob. Actually instead of knobs, C-Shaped iPod-style wheels for every parameter.
-No midi. OSC protocol only.
-No keyboard. Instead, a multifunction array of iPod-style wheels that can either play notes, recall parameter values, or be used as a mod sequencer.
-And of course, it has to sound amazing.
