Let us know in the comments below!
An 8 trigger output drum track and 3 melodic CV/Gate tracks make Ground Control one powerful and versatile Eurorack performance sequencer. It can even power your whole case.

UNO Drum is a 12-track drum machine featuring 6 analogue sounds and many more PCM ones in a compact form that makes it easy to bash out rhythms and create patterns. A percussive partner to UNO, then.
It's an unusual configuration for a Eurorack oscillator but SoundForce has gone all in on the sliders with their DCO Digitally Controller Oscillator based upon the architecture of the Juno-60/106.
Gibbon Digital is bringing an interesting console-style Eurorack case that perfectly fits their TK-1 1U keyboard and their other modules. They also have an iOS step-sequencer on the way.

Fantastic new synthesizer coming from Novation which mashes together the Peak and the SL MkIII controller keyboard into one marvellously polyphonic synthesizer. Novation has reached the Summit!

Keeping the dual nature of the original NYX the NYX V2 expands and deepens the possibilities and the patching into other modular gear. Check out this preliminary video.
A range of electro-acoustic noise boxes made by Berlin-based 10cars that look like they were found in an abandoned 1970s school room. The unseasonably named Autumn Soundboxes will be at Superbooth.
Pittsburgh Modular has a custom Eurorack synthesizer designed for sound design and experimentation to reveal at Superbooth. The Voltage Reseach Laboratory could get very interesting.
The tease machine leading up to Superbooth has started and IK Multimedia are dropping clues to a new device they are bringing to the show. Knobs seem to be the focus, which is nice.
