Just be sure that it’s clear they both implement granular time-stretching – I believe there is a difference?
My impression of the ER-301 is that it is just hugely powerful: assuming the CPU capacity doesn’t get the user down. Not to sound like a fanboi, but what can it not do out the box / with accents? I’m just intrigued what people have stumbled over.
You may want to clarify ‘scope’.
And you may want to explain your own [the designer’s] concept of live workflow etc. – I mean how you see the er-301 being used, and what it was, essentially, designed for.
I just bought it for time-stretch, panning, and sample playback, but its switching capacity is going to really help [those two extra outs]. I was never really going to be disappointed with the module, given that – unless the manual grains unit defeated me and I could not stretch.
Incidentally, please do clarify the difference between clocked and grain stretch, in your documentation.
I mean, bugs could be an issue… if I were you, I’d concentrate any apologetics for that Cheers.
Also, add a comment on the capacity / ideas to emulate existing sound modules such as Clouds.
