If Cat then with Factory Upgrades and possibly a few modules to patch to and from.
However, while the endless discussions about "how close this or that" are certainly good for sales and stuff, they have a decreasing impact on my ambition to do more such things.
Not everyone asks you know, justsayin. However, when you find the ambition for the Octave Cat and/or the evolution of ACE, or just the next evolution of Berlin Modular, I'm definitely down for that.
As much as I like the Cat, and FWIW, I own one with the 2040 filter, I could play with filter FM all day on that thing, I would also like to see your take on the CEM multimode from the Elka Synthex in Diva. Maybe you should call it Diva XL so that you can charge for the upgrade. New modules of that caliber aren't really a simple "update" in my book.
I don't really have anything constructive to add here as I feel like my tastes put me in the minority of synth consumers, e.g., as much as I'm excited about your take on the P5, I was one of a half dozen or so who felt that monosynths are perfectly valid, even in software. Also, I don't care much about pure emulations of synths, just of different parts of them.
At any rate:
+1 on the Octave Cat
+1 on ACE XL
