The user interface is hard to use because of the black fonts on a rather dark background.

The knobs look good, but their setting is also hard to read as the dot is too small and dark. And there is a light stain on the metal surface which moves as you turn, but shouldn't move, just like shadows.

I can't read many options on the IM matrix drop-down menus as the text is longer than the box is wide.

Add two additional EM modulation slots just like for IM, namely 2 EM 3-4.

Sine wave is missing from the oscillators, which as such sound weak somehow. I guess your synth would sound better if you used the Attila Fustos oscillator modules, which were used in Tarkus. Especially resonance sounds much better.
