Until now I wasn't aware that UPS had "toddler on a tricycle" as one of its delivery options, but that seems to be what Sequential chose :hihi: I can't fault them for choosing the cheapest method though, I'm just impatient to play with the new toy...
you're lucky, dhl seem to have been forced to take on snails. email on the 4th saying delivery by end of day on 5th.
email on 6th your parcel will be with you tomorrow.
was sat in the local office for 2 bloody days, i could have walked there for it!

DHL is weird. Sometimes packages arrive almost before they are shipped, other times I think they bury packages in the soil for a while and let them age with the kimchi.

It depends on where you live also! I had to obtain a clearance from Greece and the DHL office there was so fast and friendly. They went to the office and obtained the clearance and then sent it to me (in New Zealand) in 3 days total.
After two weeks, the NZ DHL delivered it to me :nutter:
NZ DHL was the worst DHL I've ever dealt with, after that they sent me email hoping that I'm satisfied with their service! So, in short, know your DHL!

I got a microphone DHL-ed from Sweden to Australia in less than 3 days from completing the order over email !! I couldn't post a letter to next door and get it there in that time.

That's a busy toddler... I'm about 1/3 of that distance, but it's still due to arrive Monday. Seems to be taking a break in Lenexa, KS all day.

Here's one I did a few days ago...
The patch I have running now is cool for hours of playing... but I haven't managed to get a decent recording yet... and the new toy arrives a morrow... :hyper:

I got mine 10am UK time...
had a go with it in isolation from my ongoing patch... :love:

Then found a fitting sound to add to this ongoing mad groove...

Really very happy to have this unit... if not for the auction, I would never even have known about it.

I'm not sure whether it's going to be a long-term keeper for me -- but playing with it tonight did inspire a bouncy new track, so maybe it will survive on its own merits instead of my original expectations :)

Edit: everything good now, got BFD3 + expansion license today.

Glad to participate in auction and my appreciation to Luftrum. Certainly a huge task to coordinate ... remembering the focus of charities that benefited for many years not just the awesome deals on software they also got us.
