Thank you Thierry....Thank you Fred....I still have a lot to learn as a player, and I think I have not yet gotten to the point where I am limited by my instrument....The limitations are mainly my own....So I'll keep practicing for now...

Thanks so much for your video Dominik!  Nice to see you "in person"!

Nice panel layout, did you use a laser to do the lettering?

I particularly like the pizzicatto feature operating in the zero volume region, not sure I would have thought to do that.

Dewster, thanks for embedding the video.

Yes, there is a fablab in town and fortunately they have a laser among their tools. Crazy machine.

Velocity ('pizzi-control') has been found more or less by chance while experimenting. And well, at least me being quite happy with that feature. It instantly felt like normal behaviour simply following the given emotion.

Dominik,
seemed to me that the noise is simply added to the pitch waveform (simple arithmetic addition). Nothing more complex (like the modulation/multiplication). Is that so?

Ilya, exactly. It's a simple two-channel OpAmp mixer (pitch and noise) before the VCA. Which provides one with something like old scool analoge drum-machine percussion or noisy shellac recordings or resembles wind instruments..
