Craig gives it a pretty good review though he missed some of the bugs as he had the version that still had the stepped glide.

excellent.

it seems that the CWA team is working hard on refining this box. I see that you got an update in matter of few days.
Hopefully they address these issue in an acceptable time period so this box becomes the next Creamware hit.

Yes, I'm hoping they sell a lot of these! Absolutely amazing sound!
The sooner they polish off the firmware, the better it will be for Creamware. We don't want another "Waldorf"... :sad:

It isn't worse than Arturia's MiniMoog V (which doesn't retrigger envelopes in poly mode), is it?

Don't know, never tried it.

Its just the voice-allocation/attack-truncation bug thats making me crazy. I'm holding off posting my reviews on Analogue Heaven, Harmony Central and my own site until CW fixes this. In the meantime, mono still works great and the sound of this beast is nothing short of fantastic! I think some people aren't noticing the bugs because a lot of the poly sounds have very short attacks and decays - these type patches work just great for "organ" or "clav" timbres but suck for pads - and I love pads! :wink:
