Subject: Re: [motm] Module Idea -- Harmonic Bias Source

I agree, I have a micro modular and love it. The only difference is fewer
knobs and fewer DSPs. fewer DSPs only means less polyphony. Almost all
patches written for the full modular work in the micro. It's virtually
unlimited in the number of modules you can incorporate. Downside is you need
a MAC (or PC) to program it. And it is digital. Sounds pretty good for
digital though.
