Not everyone hates his job! If you are skilled (and I believe Robin W. is!) you can choose the job you love most.
And who wants to ruin his good reputation, if he could work for someone else?
I think it's not proved that the TT-303 is produced by the same bad people which got in trouble with adafruit.
And it's not a small one-man-project only to make fast money. It's not soldered by hand in a small workshop.
It's surface-mount-technology for which you need a modern factory! And they tried to make the TB-clone even better
with a clever modern sequencer.
For me I want to know if I should get one before Roland will stop this project.
But who knows about the future. Perhaps Roland does not do anything and thousands of TTs
will be produced and you will get one for 100 Euros in 2 years... (like the TB in the 80ties :wink: )
