We have just recieved a reaction from Sherman:
Quote from the email:
These rackversions are NOT a hoax. They are reality.
We have 1x rackversion : with 1 regular Sherman FB built in, and 2x rackversion, with 2 regular FB’s built in. However it is NOT correct that there is a built-in stereo filterbank in cooperation with Rodec. This stereo DJ Filterbank, in cooperation with Rodec, will be a totally different concept, with release later in year 2006.
Official (and professional) photo’s will be posted on our Sherman website.
So keep checking Gearjunkies for the latest news around Sherman.
