Hi all, I'm Manuel at Oxi Instruments. Sorry but I've to reply in english.
First off thank you for your comments.
About the price, I have in my mind 500€ market price.
You have to take into account dealer margins and all costs. The housing is CNC aluminum, it's not exactly cheap. The board includes many components, 8 cv outputs adapted from -3 to 5V, battery, charging and measurement system, Bluetooth module..., and don't forget the 128 RGB LEDs. We made a lot of optimizations to get as close as possible to this price point but we say € 600 because we don't want to lie to anyone in case extracosts appear. Anyway you can get a great discount by backing the campaing the first few days. I can't tell exact % but I promise it will be under 400€ and as close as possible to 300€ for the first backers.
About the limit of steps I agree with you all. Most of the time you don't have musical ideas longer than 4 bar, but when it's the case, you don't want to feel limited by the hardware. The arranger of Song view is really cool to chain patterns but anyway, it can be annoying to have to resort to that feature in this case.
I will increase the steps of the MONO and CHORD MODEs up to 128 steps. The last 64 steps will be available from the UI in a not so obvious way but they will be there. Fair enough?
Thank again and spread the word if you liked the project!
