Rare Waves Hydronium - Effects loop

So I just looked back at this synth, and I realized that it has an fx loop built into it. It also has two different audio ins (which is cool because one mutes the oscillator and the other one mixes incoming sound with the oscillator). But the fx loop seems unique.

The loop is placed between the filter and the VCA, which apparently mitigates the noise one generates when plugging synths into distortion/fuzz pedals (as we often do).

Wondering if anybody out there knows of any other synthesizers that have an fx loop integrated like this. It seems like a pretty dope idea, and Iā€™m surprised that I have not seen it on a lot of other machines.
