exactly what i predicted on [AH] ~ it is the previously
released "afx mode" firmware upgrade with a custom skin. you
could get a normal BS2 and just update the firmware for the
same thing.

also from what i understand, the BS2 is p. good and you
wouldn't do wrong acquiring one

i played around with a supernova II in guitar center like
twenty years ago and i still kind of want one today

man i dont listen/into gear so kinda ignored all the hype
and anticipating for this release thing as it had no bearing
but just the blinding expecatational let down from so many
people online was really off putting. any comments i veered
into on all the promotional posts were just in poor taste
like something better was owed to them or anything like
that. and just how vocal they are in being upset that it's
just X or that they didn't also get Y with it. so weird i
always thought the people who really were in tune with these
types of music could get around that natural habit of having
unrel expectations and what's worse is then loudly
proclaiming that to the world. off putting a bit and
especially from the product engineer's perspective , they
put out something they think is cool and to hear the most
vocal people being not about the kit at all but that there
isn't more aphex tunes associated with the release. wild!

the fans built it up into a big deal for themselves, i
suppose, not richard. he was pretty frank on the nature of
the project. kind of funny really

I wonder how much Novation paid him to use his logo/brand.

Anyway, I dodged the hype train by assuming it was just a
rebadged BSII from the start, because why wouldn't it be?
The real collab already happened last year. But I couldn't
help but think it be really cool if it had been some kind of
wacky drum machine. Which, I mean, I guess it is now, but
with a pointless 25-key keyboard if that's all you're using
it for.

I would have liked to see something with an on-board
sequencer and designed from the ground up in collaboration
with Aphex Twin. That would have made something special, I
think. Maybe. Or I should just shut up and buy a used BSII.
