You might want to take a look at the Kodamo Essence FM then ... powerful and extremely useable FM ... sounds great with a Linnstrument or Sensal Morph, interface a pleasure...

No problem with those people. They are right, too. A Minimoog doesn’t need more than note on/off because the sound is so alive! And please check out the recent video with the Jupiter 4 on my channel: the sound is so massive that just pressing a key make you smile. No MPE needed, period.

On the other side, more modern sound engines like FM can be better programmed with keyboard control. (Sorry for the self promotion, but please check out my video Seaboard + Elektron Digitone. Such a sound can only be made with MPE controllers)

So everyone should be happy.

Was looking to Kodamo as well, but haven't heard any meaningful sound demo of Kodamo - all demos sound super-digital as first computer sound generators - absolutely without soul

Anyone heard from Roli Support lately?

I've had a ticket open for almost five weeks now. Hearing of others that've been waiting for over two months.

They are slow. I had to wait about one month to get an answer for a ticket, too.

Here for the gear
 
I'm not waiting on a support ticket but I have been waiting to see if they get any more Rise 49s into stock. I asked to be notified about a month ago but no update so far. Hoping they continue to manufacture them or an updated version.

Another example of “still very happy” with the Seaboard:
