Yes, the Studio Electronics Modstar Sensei Analog is in stock!

Manufacturer Description:
SENSEI ANALOG is a lustrous, three discrete Oscillator, all analog duophonic dream machine (OK, our customized MIDI 3 is a clever forgivable digital necessity) which could, should, be thought in the same breath as celestial chariots of old—here transporting earthly creations beyond the hammered bowl/barrier of the firmament into a synthetic, sonic paradise.Four supreme, exalted filters: SEM, 4075, 5089 and SE88, one for each Class-A OSC, and the overflow for the final resonant subtraction, tint and sanction the transformation; ensconced, appropriately enough, in a Special Edition Monorocket black “carbon” case. Man, does that ever matter where uber-beefy power delivery and connectivity, clarity of sound, supreme build quality, and handsome, rugged portability are concerned. Internally mounted IEC supply makes your pack & setup nice 'n easy—does it every time.

2 stage Class A discrete design, using 3 pairs of hand matched transistors; DRIVE—'70s era distortion and Drone control.
Compact switchable dual audio/CV router.
Ring Mod, White and Pink Noise, Sample and Hold—Classic Synth Toolbox, with LFO and slewing control of S&H.
Versatile, low-noise six channel summing mixer/attenuator for audio and CV—pots are wired with logarithmic volume curves.
