As I listen to, say, a podcast featuring SENSEL’s CEO, speaking about all the amazing [haptic] things they at Sensel are THINK-TANKING about, I think, 'What a great music production time we live in."
My next thought, not yet being a MORPH OWNER is, "WHY…is there not a single Morph available for sale on planet Earth? And then, “WHY is Sensel not divulging more info about the WHEN…even if only to say, 'Brilliant as we are, we have no clue.” Maybe Mr. Musk has a supply, stored on MARS.
JOUE’ has stock, McMillan has stock, many other MPE devices that I DON’T want…have stock. I tend to think that there’d be one of the Sensel genius’ focused on inventory and supply chain. A fulfilling notion.
I know: COVID, Chips, Bottlenecks, the harbor at Long Beach, blah and blah. Still, I’m thinking that more than a few companies must have responded, about the time that Trump said, 'Don’t worry, I got this [RE a few Covid cases], preparing to have lots of Dry Powder on hand, just in case something weird happened, like a pandemic. Ah well, water under the bridge now. And true enough, Sensel could rightly say, “Mark, where were you when we created the Haptic Universe?” But I never professed to be one of the chosen, gifted ones.
So, I simply wonder, is SENSEL telling anyone anything about WHEN we may expect MORPHs to be BUYABLE again?
All the feature sets are cool, along with all the coming future-tech, but it kind of might as well be a good PDF novel, given that folks can’t buy one.
JOUE’ is courting me, but what I really want is a MORPH. ROLI, I suppose, would like to have me back again. I’m not illuminated. Don’t need a new magic ring for my finger and frustrated by seeing TOUCHE’ SE continue to appear in lists of MPE devices; clearly, it’s not one (cool as Touche’ is). I own TEC Breath/Bite, so kind of got multi-points of control nailed…for solo instrument stuff.
I could make a decision, if only I knew approximately long should I expect to wait for a MORPH? Long time ago, I signed up for the LET ME KNOW where there’s Morph News. Crickets.
The largest wolf (JOUE’) is at my door. Or maybe I should buy LUMI before ROLI shrinks its offerings down to Colorful 8-Key Controllers (Ad Campaign: ‘A FIFTH A DAY IS ALL YOU REALLY NEED!’). Perhaps they’ll be magnanimous enough to give us one extra high key, just to augment the 5th without having to throw a lever.
I know, there may exist, hundreds of WISH I COULD BUY ONE topics in The MORPH forum…dunno, didn’t look. If there are, my cursory scan of HAPTIC DELIGHTS TOPICS/QUERIES seem to swallow up what may be a group of us who don’t yet own, so I thought I’d inquire.
