    Will it retain full functionality or will some controls be limited?

    This could very interesting.

    I've not heard anything else other than it'll be released in April, and in some reports the Summer.

    It'll have to be much more limited- the XO line has 3 knobs each, unless they change their format for this one. Very curious about it, as I love the BMS but won't get one because of the size. Between this, the Chunk synth, and the Barge Grinder, there's going to be a lot of interesting pedals do out in the next month or two.

    Summer NAMM would be a better place to drop it- last summer's NAMM is where the XO Micro POG came out, IIRC.

    Some of the XO line has 6 knobs, like the Q-Tron+, Memory Man, Polyphase, etc.

    Ah, forgot about the medium-sized XOs (I have a Q-tron+ XO myself :rolleyes:)

    That would make more sense than the smaller three-knob XOs- the POG is mostly an octaver so going to three knobs wasn't a huge difference, but the BMS has a lot of stuff going on that would benefit from a setup like the Q-tron+ or Memory Man.
     
  9. Surely It will have sliders still! I dig sliders!

    The XO Qtron + is functionally the same as the big one so maybe they can pull this off. Sliders are better given the BMS's complexity though.

    Damn. Must sell mine before April!

    I love my BMS but the bypass absolutely sucks - makes any bass sound like you got it out of a christmas cracker. The XO version should be total win.
     
  16. I just want to know if it will come with an expression pedal input!!

    Exp pedal input for start, stop and rate :hyper:

    if only...
     

  20. How many of us would have to email EHX for them to actually consider it?? Exp pedal inputs for multiple parameters would be heaven!!

    Considering it's XO it'll be true bypass for sure so that issue should be sorted. I imagine it'll still be 24v power though.
