This video has sold it to me...
I've had one on pre-order since April, but I guess that didn't get me a slot in the first batch of shipped units. No matter, it'll get here when it gets here. I am excited to hear what people do with it when they get it.
Do you mind if I ask where you ordered yours from? Also, are you in the US?
Yeah, ask away. I'm in the U.S. and I ordered it from Sweetwater. They got a shipment of 100 and I was evidently #120 on their list. When I saw The Guitar Center actually had them in stock and Sweetwater was telling me I'd have to wait until August... I just bought one from The Guitar Center. Came July 20th. I guess I could have waited but there didn't seem to be a good reason to.
Anyway, I really dig it. Fun to use and sounds great. I need to figure some stuff out as the keyboard tier I have it on is a bit high for me to see all the controls, but even though, it's pretty simple to figure out and hard to make sound bad. Keyboard feels good... I think I need to adjust the aftertouch response curve. It's very easy to trigger. The whole thing has a very solid feel. Doesn't seem like they cut corners, except for the part where the keyboard can sense and send out velocity... but not use it.

It is a very good synth, no doubt.
I had it for a couple of weeks (from a friend) and had lot of fun. Its sounds great, it's expressive and easy to get into. The only minus point is its MIDI implementation. With its CV I/O and all its synthesis features (very peculiar filter and VCO mixer) it is so close to the perfect 1-oscillator analog deal... Anyway I found unbelievable that its knobs/parameters CANNOT be automated (it does NOT support ** any ** MIDI CC) so I cannot create any storage and most of all create envelopes on a sequencer. A pity. It felt "unfinished" (as I am used to Roland synth such as the Juno106 or JD-800 completely MIDI controlled).
Maybe something you wished to know before getting one.
Remains ideal, if you just work "old-school".
