The problem is that building even a simple sequencer would be
expensive, and every sale would cut into sales of MOAS. This might
even mean that MOAS wouldn't happen, and I think Paul would prefer
to deliver new and unique modules. After all, the simple 8 step
sequencer has been done sooo many times. But don't get me wrong,
I'm just as eager as everyone else to get VCOs, VCFs and the
sequencer. :)
