Did you not see all the inexpensive Behringer clones? RD-808, Pro-1, Odyssey, MS-101, VC340 vocoder and a $200 analog mono desktop with sequencer called the Crave which can be polychained.

Arturia introduced the MicroFreak: 1-4 voice poly using digital oscillators, analog filter, touch plate "keyboard" with polyphonic aftertouch.

Nothing from Roland.

Korg showed the Minilogue XD which was teased about a month earlier.

I was most excited for Teenage Engineering's release of their new Pocket Operator Modular System.

They are complete stand-alone modular synths that come in build it yourself kits (similar to Nintendo Labo) that are definitely worth a look.

I went to the NAMM show last week (Fri-Sun).

Neither Behringer nor Moog had booths there at the actual NAMM show. Both of them instead had product premiere events in the Los Angeles area instead.

It's always cool to go, but this year was kinda boring, mainly because most of the manufacturers do their official announcements prior to the show now, instead of at the show. The show is just an opportunity to just check out these already-announced products in person.

The MicroFreak is the most interesting to me, since it has poly aftertouch which I haven't had poly aftertouch available since I sold my SQ-80 14 years ago. Would be cool as a controller for pads on my softsynths that support it (although it's only a 25 note keyboard).

That Arturia video is so funny...what sounds were made on the Freak (obviously not the drums) and how much processing was applied? But the hipster dude was cute ;)
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.
