Yes your correct a digi version not sure which one. The samples are purely show distortions produced by the low end. I'm happy to recieve any samples from units. Most 1176 will be of a similar sound (distortion) despite all the different versions.
The original sampling was from a hardware product. Yesterday I added a new feature to the set, so samples will follow.
The new version is now being tested! V1 will be taken down off the website tomorrow,for the next version! If you want to get this at about half price you can buy this now. Release v2 date is not confirmed.
