Thanks Leonardo!

the ToneCore looks like good hardware, I've not used it but it does seem to require very specialised skills to program.
We want to ensure our toolchain is open source and cross platform, and that patches can be written in plain C/C++.

For the exact feature set of the finished product, it will depend a lot on how much money we can raise. So we are loath to promise too much!
But rest assured that your requests have been heard. Moreover, 'hackability' is already very high on our agenda.
