I would be interested in that, for sure.
My only analog these days is my MKS-80. It's a fine instrument, for
sure, but I still get the urge to run a patch cord now and then. I also
miss the knobs of my Prophet. I was thinking of getting a FatMan and
building a MiniMoog-esque case for it, just for fun. If the FatMan had a
3rd VCO, I would probably go for it.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I would like to see an optional
VCA that had ADDSR (like the Korg Poly-800 and the DX-7 made famous -
two Decay stages for more control). This setup seems to be *extremely*
rare in analog systems. Am I the only person that likes these?

If your life silences your song you should alter your life.
For your life is then alone worth living if it kindles your song, nay,
if it itself is a song, winged and endless.
