Here for the gear
I cannot easily recall seeing or playing an analogue synth that was bilaterally symmetrical, and note that the expression pads on the left and right appear to have identical functionality. Further, the eight lower buttons on the right are labeled "Left Hand Favorites", and the corresponding buttons on the left are labeled "Right Hand Favorites". Are these for ease of use irrespective of the players' dominant hand? Does the Pan easily accommodate the ARP-2600 technique of inverting the keyboard pitch, such that the highest note is on the leftmost key and the lowest note on the rightmost key? (I recall reading somewhere that Josef Zawinul was fond of this)
