Well, to be honest, I've been playing with the 420 for a day now, and,
while it totally rules, I still like the Doepfer A-121 quite a bit. It's
just a different sound, hard to describe without resorting to silly

And there are certain other Doepfer aspects that I like, for instance, the
oscillators have a rotary switch to set the octave. In my live setup, I
used the D. osc's for "tonal" sounds and the 300 as both a control voltage
(to the 120 and ring mod) and a semi-random pitch source. I like being able
to manually sweep from LFO to supersonic range with the 300, but the D.
design makes it easier to do conventional musical lines.
>And the knobs are where you expect them to be!

That's most true!

I am most thouroughly enjoying the 420, I love the FM1 -/+ control! And it
just sounds amazing, looking forward to building the 2nd soon!
