that’s Reverb. that’s not the resale price. and it just reflects the rarity of the Cirklon. direct from Sequentix they’re 1440 euros, which is about $1700 (usd). the CVIO one is about $2050. so, if one is after a Cirklon with CVIO and a breakout box, it’ll be about $2500. not sure what shipping/taxes are; maybe another $150. but you’ll pay those if you buy on Reverb too.
@sacguy71 if you’ve waited 3.5 years I’d think you would’ve made up your mind by now. but I get that your process/workflow changed and adapted to the lack of the Cirklon being there. if you have the cash, I’d say give it a shot and maybe see what you’d do with it and what it does to your workflow without using your other sequencers. could be good, could be bad. regardless, you won’t lose money in reselling it. even if you’re not some a-hole selling it for $4k, you’ll at least make your money back.
I do get your sentiment though that it’s best for controlling a bunch of hardware. that’s 100% what it’s meant for; I’m using it with 20-ish synths/machines. that instrument list is a god-send. as are the cvio setup/scaling options. little stuff is just so streamlined, well thought-out, and intuitive. almost always when you think “I wonder if it can…” the answer is “yes!” BUT I will say you can do a large chunk of what it does in Ableton, if you’d prefer to work there. you may have to add a DC-coupled interface for CVIO control, or a bunch of midi-cv converters. but it’s a different workflow, obviously; the Cirklon is meant to be the center of a hardware-based studio, for people that want to sequence with hardware.
