Awesome! Very likely candidate for ending up on my shopping list in the near future :)
Would it be possible to add functionality to switch unison on/off somehow without having to turn the Juno off and on again? (transpose button trick)

I haven't found any simple way to switch on/off unision.

Hi really exited about this product and gonna order very soon. I was wondering if it would be possible to add different arpeggio modes like 1 octave 2 octave etc. so it doesn't always go through all 4.
