Sounds great, enjoy! Still thinking a DM12 or the Pro800 Knock off. But this one is a nice surprise. And price point of the CS-80 clone is still an unknown.

Another pet peeve (although not about the instrument): I pre-ordered mine from Guitar Center in early January. In April they auto-cancelled my order because it had been waiting too long so I lost my place in line. They were more than happy to put the order in again for me, but I said no thanks, I'd rather pre-order from someplace that will keep my place in line while I wait. Should have ordered from Sweetwater which will keep you spot in line and provide actual updates about shipping, or gone overseas to Thomann and Andertons which have both had them available off and on for a couple of months.

I know it"s come up before - but what is involved for US citizens to purchase from Thomman"s or Anderton"s? US dollar is about .92 euros right now. Purchasing without paying VAT and shipping to US occasionally seems a bit cheaper - is there a duty to be paid stateside?

I don't know about Guitar Center, but when I ordered my Model D via Musician's Friend (same company as Guitar Center), after a month or two had passed in backorder status they sent a note asking if I wanted to cancel my order or stay in line. I said I wanted to stay on the list. It worked. I got my D.

I'm not interested in someone's ability to program. I'm interested in their ability to compose and play.

My memory is that you don't have to pay duty if the value is under $800, which a Poly D would be.

 

THAT explains it. Years ago before many sources were selling Eurorack in the US, I made a few orders from Europe. It was cheaper to order Doepfer from Germany or England than from California. I never had to pay duties and wondered why. My orders were always under $800.

That would have been nice and I would have appreciated that! They just autocancelled my order and sent me a notice and I didn't find out what was going on until I called. I'll still shop at GC because they're stupid close to my house, but I won't do pre-orders there anymore.

I ordered the Poly D April 24th and Sweetwater said their entire May allotment was pre-sold and that mine would ship in June. I figured I'd get my pre-order in before the fulfillment dates pushes out to July. Well, mine shipped yesterday. Then I wondered whether their original June fulfillment time frame was a sales tactic. The tactic is called scarcity whereby people want more of what is in diminishing supply.

I have to say that I don't really understand the desire for this keyboard. Never been into paraphonic. Too much like the synth section of my old Arp Omni II.

It has its own uses and charms, and varies widely in utility from keyboard to keyboard. It was once a cost-saving measure, but it has often led to some cool musical stuff. My Arturia MatrixBrute can do some really neat things with Paraphony.

I would have said the same until I played a Moog Matriarch. It was unreasonably fun and sounded great. If you can't have a true poly, it's got more tricks than a mono synth.
