Correct. But as you know my use case is quite different from yours (and probably most people, certainly the ones on this forum). Closest I get to using “Thais thing with that thing” is using the Circuit to play or sequence something else.
I actually think the M:S is great for what it is, but it’s too expensive. It needs to be at least $75 cheaper. I think if they brought down the price a bit more people would bite, but perhaps not enough to offset the price reduction? Who knows. And who knows how much that battery pack will be. I’m guessing at least $75-$100, knowing Elektron.
