Just flashed WW with Orca and had a play with the DPO.
Literally from the first few notes after reboot I was thrown back entirely by how amazing this thing is.
Think I can convince myself to cross sequencers off my list of stuff to get, not sure. No demos I've heard or seen of Metropolis, René or the Verbos Voltage Multistage quite compare to the experience here. I know that sounds radical, I've only watched a million videos of those and may up end up getting one down the line but damn, this is a five star effort.
I specifically found how it lends itself to hybrid playing/sequence programming whereas with White Whale I found myself dealing with individual hits and mutes in xox-programming which of course makes sense for what it does but doesn't compare to running, like, a René on steroids. I should say i kind of left WW prematurely around looking into the scales portion of the module. I didn't really gel with the basic CV step programming. Orca opens the grid up for what I feel is some great potential with a euro counterpart, starting in its first view. If it weren't for having just gotten MI Grids I might have also still felt the need for running WW and Orca both.
Will spend more time on manual now but have a question --
The CV A and B leds weren't emitting any light for the 30 minutes I spent with Orca. CV A out did what it should pitch-wise with the DPO though, didn't have a lot of time. The four gate lights were flashing plenty.
