Axel Hartmann's 20 Hardware Synth Coming Later in June

Anyone interested in a Waldorf Blofeld or StudioLogic Sledge style synthesizer? Axel Hartmann's 20 is almost ready to ship. Here's some more details and pictures.  

Featuring a Fatar keybed and much more inside, the Axel Hartmann 20 is, according to Axel Hartmann himself, going to be shipping by the end of this month.

Here’s more details courtesy of MatrixSynth and Axel Hartmann.

"Set up for final testing and sound design. Fatar has sent us a b/w keybed for checking into a modified aftertouch ribbon below the keys, which works perfectly. The final models will be back to an all black keybed. The Synth you see is the first with black anodized surface. The grafics are laser edged. I am quite positive, that we can finally release the 20 by the end of June... Please visit our Facebook site "20", for more information."
