MacBeth Elements Synthesizer

I've been watching a few videos about the MacBeth Elements synthesizer today (that Macbeth is one kooky Scottish bloke!). I'm pretty convinced. This thing is beautiful. I love the design. There are certainly some elements of the old EMS synthesizers in there. Those knobs! Those tiny switches. He's very mindful of the aesthetic of the thing.

But the whole thing still seems very practical -- my reason for not getting (what I'd imagine is a comparably priced) Buchla music easel.

My one concern is that the envelopes are just Attack, Decay, Sustain. No Release. I love release. 

This video was released today, and he's saying they'll be ready to ship in six weeks! We may see them sooner than I'd thought.
