Nobody does it so why would you expect IKM to be any different. You can't even trust the sound demos you've heard because you have no idea how much post-production has gone into any of it or how long and hard they worked just to get a handful of nice sounds to demo.
You have to remember that trade shows are run by marketing departments and you can't trust marketing departments. Ever. And if a company isn't big enough to have it's own marketing dept, they'll hire one for a trade show. You should consider any discomfort you feel as a life lesson. You'll know better next time.
Look at the image on that page - it is very clear that there is no way of assigning the LFO from the front panel. It's not IKM's fault if you don't do your due diligence. You can hardly expect them to give you a list of all it's limitations.
There's a difference here: It's a headline feature that you can't use without additional hardware. They took the trouble of caveating that with the ADSRs - but didn't with waveform modulation.
As for the panel labeling, are you seriously telling me you've never come across a synth where you access functions that don't have a printed front panel label for them?
As I said, it would have been logical to access using either the ALT key or toggling into a modulation mode by holding LFO/ENV and then turn the osc 1+2 knobs at the top - a workflow method they already employed for oscillator/noise level. Heck, there's even a "level" label below the wave knobs that would have worked as a description for this too.
I love the idea that it was possible to do due diligence on this based on a panel graphic. That's hilarious.
