“The reason for this upgrade is that some of the MkI components reached end of life, so we took the opportunity improve some of the hardware to our new buttons, encoders and screen.”
That was some seriously bad choice on components then. The MK1 is not even two years old…who is to say the same poor choices will not happen again with the MK2? I wouldn’t take Elektron’s word for it that’s for sure.
Anyhow, nothing to lose sleep over, the circuits are the same (for better or for worse…the first 3 could do with less noise, imo). Mine has the burnt edges, hope it does not get worse.
The company has become something of an online laughing stock the last few months and its only getting worse. Loads of dissapointed people that paid a premium, only to receive a product with end of life components, within the first two years!
