I'm loving the features. I'm fearing the price.

The screen is one of the big expenses on other machines. I have a feeling the Z will be quite reasonably priced.
"Release: September 2017"ok. have to sleep a long time..
I think the thing that excites me about this new product is the fact that it is controlled by sequencers which means that it will be more of a live performance and jamming instrument than the OP-1 which made you render everything to tape and only let you control one instrument at a time.
didn't they at one point mention that they were trying to hit a $300 price point?
My impression is that it is 16 tracks directly linked to the listed tracks. If you look at the row of 16 buttons, there are symbols for all of those there. I wouldn't think that you can set 16 tracks of all drums, as that would involve some button presses that might not be as straightforward without a screen.And those things on the top -- they looked like jacks last year, but now they look like they might be buttons. As in, you choose what mode you are in using those buttons. That conclusion is based on the other jack being labeled with "out" and that (unless they use old-school PAL/NTSC), I wouldn't think they would output video via an audio style jack.
iam so glad that this is coming from TE. it's huge in terms of possibilities. different tape machines etc. september sounds awesome to get the cash in the right direction. it has a plastic/fibre housing and i hope it goes for 299.
