Yeah my wife contacted Independent Music before the waitlist was officially launched as well.I emailed Andrew/Independent after announcement before the Australian waitlist was even available. I got an email last night about purchasing and I ordered it within 30 minutes. The email said the first shipment is expected to for Australia on the 29th of June.
Having more outputs is really going to make my life easier, and I can't wait to do less preset switching and more scene switching.
Same on USA .if you want to skip the waiting list you pay $1000 more.just wait your turn on the list and you get the lower price.Not sure if anyone has stated it specifically, but the IM website now says expected release date is July 6th. It also now lists the price as +$1000 from what it has shown previously, with a note that those on the waitlist will get the original price.
