That's simply amazing!
But which revision are they making? Hopefully they do the White Face rev.

I hope they don't put the word "paraphonic" on it...

I feel faint.

This is one of the most amazing and bizarre things to happen in the synthesizer industry, ever.

I am really excited.

Are we sure that April Fool's day doesn't fall on 17th Feb in Japan ?

Will be released just in time for my birthday too. Time to start buttering up the wife :)

What's the betting this becomes one of the biggest pre-release threads in the history of mankind ?

The photo on the Korg website looks to have an extra slide switch by the filter controls. Perhaps filter types are selectable between the 2 pole and 4 pole ARP filters.
Probably a single large SMT circuit board. Great idea from Korg!
