Want to talk about music hardware or software that doesn't include Reason?

I'm looking at getting one of these.

From Perfect Circuit, it's $1099. So it's always been on my wishlist, but a little more than I'd like to spend.

But I just noticed that direct from Tasty Chips, it's $845 with shipping and paypal fee.

Curious if anybody here owns one and what your experience has been. I'm sure a lot of similar stuff can be done with Grain, but with hardware and that slider, it looks like so much fun :-)

And for those who don't know about it, here's some videos and images:

From the back it looks like they use a Raspberry Pi 2B inside the Box as the main CPU. that would be pretty nice as you could make a Backup of the OS and have the option to have it repaired/serviced quite well even after the company would discontinue it.
If you're in Aachen, come and visit us at the Voidspace. ... Pool's closed due to corona.

Yeah I'm still thinking about it. The lack of audio input is a downside, but the ability to hook up audio interfaces is cool as well as USB MIDI controllers.
