Found the specs on Gearnews :
PERKONS features four hybrid voices made up of a digital sound engine, analogue filter and overdrive. Each voice has 3 sound engine modes with 8 knob controls over the parameters including filter and FX send. There’s a built-in LFO with morphable waveforms, an analogue BBD delay circuit with send and return for each voice and an optical compressor. Each voice also has a velocity-sensitive trigger input, individual output and effects send/return on grown-up jacks. At the end of the chain is a master overdrive.

I'm curious how the two apparently separate sets of clock dividers works.

On paper, this checks all the boxes for me. It's like they took the things I liked most about the DRM1 and the Pulsar-23 and added a really fun looking sequencer. I never got my hands on a SEQ12, but it looks like it shares some ideas with multiple lanes of 16 steps with clock dividers to extend the functionality of those 16 steps. I'm really looking forward to some demos.

EDIT: SD car slot? Interestinger and interestinger.

This looks pretty intriguing. Wondering about the digital engine underneath. Could it be similar to the LXR-02? Looks like it's a three way toggle switch to change modes on the digital engine, but can't quite tell with the photos.

I was excited about this until it was official. For $1999 there are a lot of drum machine options.

Not sure I'd post the "take my money" gif until I was actually able to hear the thing, but that's just me.

looks/sounds great so far. Need to know more about drum modes. I heard some pretty trad analog (inc. 808 snare) sounds--meh... but clearly it's got some other stuff in there too,

That design looks great, but there's no CV over the modulation parameters, so it's no threat to my wallet for the time being.

On the Hainbach vid, it looks like it records knob movements into the pattern? Pretty sweet. Love the sound

Conversely, I have been looking for a performable percussion sidecar for my (small) modular rack for awhile. I’ve been on the fence about getting a Digitakt for months, and now I feel like that indecision was just the gravity of this device’s birth pressing backward through the timeline. Recordable parameter automation plus velocity-sensitive triggers (plus MIDI, I suppose) will handle anything I can see myself throwing at the problem of “make beats and not-beats know about each other”. My previous in-person encounters with Erica Synths gear led me to think this would be a real one before I even heard it, but anything that can make Hainbach giggle like a schoolboy? I must get my greasy paws upon one posthaste.

the only thing I dislike is the lack of trigger outs... this sequencer looks great and I´d love to use it to trigger other stuff as well
