Hope you like it!
There are a couple of “hidden” features that is only mentioned in the quick guide:

Temp-bypass by clicking on module name and module selection on back panel by clicking on module name :)

Great device . just one question . Are the EQ`s parametric or graphic ?

PDME615 & PSE315 is parametric, Lo shelf, mid bell and top shelf.

DEQ Drive is a bipolar eq, like a bottom/top shelf combined with a drive circuit. More for adding some crunch and do pretty wide tone adjustments :)

I've done some testing now on drums, synths and guitar. The shaping possibilities here are excellent and it's really easy to use :thumbup:
I was concerned that it might be a bit DSP heavy when having four modules active but it's sitting mostly at 3-4% which is good. However, adding either the Vintage or Modern guitar amp doubles this percentage.
Conclusion: I'm getting it!

I already found a use for it in a mix I'm working on and the TE200 Tape Machine module is an instant favorite :)

Is this a better song title, album title or artist name?

I've really been looking forward to this release, Erik. Definitely going to give this a try, and most likely buy.

Long-awaited product and a good complement to the previous Multi-FX OUROBOROS and Filter Chain X8187_

Momentary bypass is cool idea, but it should be automatable to allow performance recording. I find it creative to use momentary bypass for various modules within the chain when playing the sounds. I know it's possible to automate module selection and then select "bypass" value, but this is manual approach to achieve it.

However, I really miss permanent bypass button for module. At the various stages of sound design I very often compare the sound by bypassing the various modules (I bypass, then need to click somewhere else). By using the bypass button it would be very easy and comfortable to do it. But without the permanent toggle, it's really uncomfortable because I always need to dial the menu and then remember what module I have previously bypassed. This goes against a good user experience.

It seems that "tone" CV input for certain Drive modules doesn't work.

It would be also very useful to have CV ins for "gain" and "freq" (each band) of "PSE315" module. Creative effects could be obtained by modulating those parameters. Achieving it through combinator is cumbersome.

I wouldn´t really mind using a combinator if it was merely about setting one up even though it is naturally easier to just plug a cable in.
Thing with the combinator modulation is we merely got 8 CV- ins so far. These can easily be already in use or needed elsewhere if you incorporate several devices.
The additional control-ins (just 4 anyway) only count that much because they translate the incoming CV into stepped curves using 0-127 values.
Hence I aswell support CV-ins for as many parameters possible where there is enough space like it is within the saturation and especially the comp section.

Automation for temp bypass could be arranged, I didn’t include it since you have automation of module selection, and automating can create unwanted clicks and pops when modules are activated/deactivated. But if more people are asking for it I’ll definitly take this in consideration for an update :)
