          Where can the Dominion X be had? I've looked around online, and nobody seems to carry them.

                There's a lot of cool new toys in Eurorack.



                Other than that? Dunno.

                  Thanks, Michael. I came across the Thomann site, but was hoping there might be a US dealer for them. Analog Haven doesn't even list the Dominion, even though they carry other MFB products.



                  I wish there were more retailers in the US that carried synths made by smaller companies. I guess I should be glad that Austin at least has its own synth boutique:

                        As far as I know, they have not shipped yet, so no one has first hand experience.

                          It's an interesting race to the bottom in workstations these days. Gigabyte romplers for $1,000 with better acoustic pianos than you could get for $3,000 five years ago.
