    Hi Seb,

    I just got my new Thorax yesterday - looks beautiful. I haven't had a chance to get it set up yet (in the process of redoing my so-called home studio) but I saw the previous post that mentioned you were tweaking the Thorax model.

    I have the "older" model - or at least it looks like it is compared to the new pics on your site.

    Are the differences cosmetic or are there internal changes as well?

    Mostly cosmetic like puting the meter behind the panel and shifting a few switches around...
    The 'colour' control on the preamp has different db spacings and the pad jumps by 10 db steps instead of 15db steps....
    However , all tones attainable through one unit are attainable through the other.
    The changes in the gain steps has more to do with setting up a coloured default mode than anything else.

    We have included a comp bypass toggle on the compressor section to ease A/B between comp and bypass modes.

    Along with these changes is a slight price increment which you'll see take effect in the next week.
