Wow Tony !! Very cool. Since you asked... In general, the panel is too
crowded for my personal taste. However, I can see why you would do it that
way to get the time and level pots in rows. And, if someone was concerned
with real estate, this answers that by cramming a lot into a little space.
For me, I like the feel of the interface with the bigger knobs and spacing.
That was one of the things that attracted me to MOTM in the beginning. Of
course, that would make the module 4 Units wide instead of 2. I would make
that trade off, other might not.

I agree wholeheartedly. I fell in love with EGs controlled like this when
the Casio CZ-101 came out. I have always liked the concept of stages with
time and level instead of defining what each stage actually is (like a lot
of my stupid Korg stuff). The looping concept is new to me, but I can see
how this would be a great feature to have. So, functionally, the module
looks great to me.
