WOW! :-)  And since the association shot into my mind while
reading the subject line I have to ask: you dont happen to be affiliated with
the Lego Sound System from Austria, do you? Its a (I think) vienna
based underground sound system which was mostly active in Italy
last time I heard of them.  And since they do mostly acid, I had to ask :-)

This page is confusing me.  Can you same me a bit of time and let
me know if your synth is available standalone (without a GUI)?
That'd be sweet, since it has a nice aggressive sound.
