  1. Back OT, this looks great, well featured and non-modular for people like me who still have desk/shelf setups. Really interested in the final price.

  2. I think the price will be high class because we talk here about an individual developer and not like a brand like Roland, Arturia, Korg… Over 1000€ is my suggestion but I can err me 😉
