This looks very interesting indeed!! I'm in the market for something like this at the moment.

I'm currently using a Roland RD300GX and Hammond XK1 setup but am really missing some decent synth sounds.

I've been looking at the Clavia Nord Electro 4 and am curious to hear how this compares!?

Also, am keen to hear how both the V-Combo VR-09 and Nord Electo 4's Hammond sounds compare to my XK1!!?

Any idea of price for this?

It's £729 in the UK which seems quite reasonable.

I guess it is not important to most players, and at the projected price you can't complain, but......

.....no aftertouch.....

CAn you upload addotional sounds for this? How many sounds does it come with? If more sounds were uploadable from out expansion cards that would be great. Not bad sounds for an old progger like me!!

Sure why not? I play my DX7 through my SH-201 with effects, arpeggios, dual sounds etc. Must be the same on this one, or better.

Looks like old "To Host" 8-pin DIN connector for COM-port cable (MINI DIN (8 pin) <--> D-SUB (9 pin)), that used in old synth in pre-USB era.
