the sexiest modes are 2 and 3 for me, but mode 1 is probably the most used, as matrix mixing is fun for all the family :D
i like the idea of the switching and matrix working together, feeding and eating fx.
or any combination really.
mode 4 has been my least used, as quad speakers i dont have set up full time, but ive discovered i can make a sort of audiothing, motor type thing with it, which has been fun too 8)

+1 Elevator fan here, they were helpful when I had questions and didn't try to sell me stuff I didn't need.

It's some weirdness on their site... It says pre-order, but two pages later it says the pre-order is unavailable and the only option is to be notified. It also says the ship date is May 14th :hihi:

Does anyone have input on DPO vs Instruo Cs-L vs something different?
First up... I've been backtracking and..

Welcome to the wonderful world of modular... looks like you spent some time researching what you want.. Looks cool. :tu:

I don't know either the DPO or Cs-L..certainly the Cs-L has been on my maybe list, along with many many other complex/modern OSCs (modern.. I have the Scippmann Omega_Phi and Generate3.. not classic complex OSCs.. but modern/complex IMO).
A couple of weeks ago, first one then a second guy were both offering up to 1,000 Euros for an Omegas-Phi, either Mrk1 or 2 (I have a 3rd hand Mrk1).. That would fund a Mindphaser and leave a profit for.. yup, more modules (like.. for free )..
Like an old lover.. O-P and me had to communicate.. justify staying in my rig... this is what came about.. just 6 outputs from the O-P.. and some utilities (I love utilities.. they bring MY rig to life and make it very playable.. for me) .. Im doing the same now (one OSC pieces) with Qu-Bit Chord2 and then Generate3... and then Mindphaser...
My takeaway... these modern OSCs can do so much.. which one to buy, that's the dilemma... ;)

Anyway.. the Omega_Phi earning it's permanent place in my rig... from my dead hands only :hihi:

Reading, watching like crazy... but this is a seriously deep rabbit hole! And thanks for the welcome... I'm having great fun so far.

I'm going to add Omega Phi to the homework list but damn hefty price tag. Even if scarcity and price might put it out of reach, I'd like to compare.

I think the tasty bitties you've got coming should do just fine! :hihi:

And thinking of your mixer expansion... while I never intended to get the µZeus, I have to say that I love flipping switches. :D
