OB-X8 Manual?

First off, big congrats to Tom, Marcus, Tony, Dave and Sequential/Focusrite teams!!   

Looks and sounds like a winner! 

I know it has only been a couple hours since announcement, but is it too soon to request the manual (even if still a beta)?  Would really like to read more about the Page 2 / advanced menu features and the options for modulation with lfo/velocity/pressure/note/voices.

Same here. I just pre-ordered mine and would like to read up on it before it arrives.

Yes, please.

I look for things like if a preview/compare thingy before overwriting a preset.
So you easily can browse and just look around after one location that is not a keeper, when about to save.
To my knowledge Roland has none, and too many others miss this too.

Under the hood stuff too, seems there are some cool things there.
- are there curves to adjust for envelopes?
- you can, saw in a demo, pick envelopes from the various models if OB

Same request, as it would be nice to wait until the delivery doing something else than hearing all demos of the beast.  :P

Pleased don't "bump" / "+1" / "me too" these; it's really not productive.

I'm sure the team is aware that they need to write a manual; it'll arrive when it's ready

BUMP (or do you really think that companies read through their forums?)

A Sequential employee already responded on GS to people asking about the manual and said it was in hand and still being written. Itíll come out in due course and no amount of comments on here or GS will do anything to speed up that process. We all just need to exercise some patience.

But what about the Squeaky Wheel Axiom?   ;D ;D

Saw that GS post a couple days ago...  Seq does have a history of releasing manuals a few weeks prior to retail release, but yeah, if it's not ready, it's not ready.   Just eager to explore further...

Iím with you on being keen to read it, especially as itíll be an eternity before I can get chance to play one.

They can print 2000 hard copy manuals overnight. And this doesnít include the fact that they can just upload the PDF to their website.

Ö I take peace in the fact that the delayed manual likely means they are still updating the firmware to make it as good as possible.  Maybe some tweaks they thought about after NAMM.
