Few questions; Is the A6 still in production and will it remain so for the foreseeable future? Will the support continue for the machine i.e. OS updates/fixes? Are the first, more expensive Alesis A6’s different in any way than the later Numark ones that are apparently now made in the far east as s...

Dave, the one major question I have had and the one thing which has kept me from pulling the trigger on an A6 purchase is what will the status of the A6's ASICs be in the future? CEMs and SSMs were used in several synths from many manufacturers so those chips were manufactured to some degree in sur...

I'm shocked that the marketing group fought you It wasn't the marketing group. I was the marketing manager of the synth division, and I was certainly behind it.

said analogue section, not the whole synthesizer with digital routings included. In the video I posted earlier in this thread, it has Dave Smith saying just that. If its wrong, he should probably email sonic state to stop hosting that video, so people don't continue to get the wrong idea from it. H...

Once again, the analogue section is supposed to be like a one voice Prophet 5 No, it isn't. It's supposed to be an Evolver. ;) Seriously - when Dave designed the Evolver engine, he was definitely not trying to recreate the Prophet. He was trying to completely outdo it...which he totally believes he...
