Sure, JS, according to Walfdorf it'll be within the next month.

I get the feeling this might be one of those synths that never happens :(

I really hope that's not true!
I'm sure it will come out as soon as I get impatient and buy a microQ and a microwaveXT!

These things always take a while to come out, they're probably busy getting the Phoenix editions out so they've got a bit of capital to start producing the Blofeld.

Patience. :)

Overpromised and underdelivered.

Wow, reading this thread and the accompanied links has been the first in-depth look I've taken at the Blofeld. Seems really cool. It's a shame if it never comes to fruition.

Is the synth engine the same as in the Stromberg?
Anyways; awesome synth that will be a perfect & ultimate setup in companionship with my rs7000 :D

I would add Elektron to that list of exceptions as well. They have been backed-up lately, but, frankly, that is more than understandable considering the tragedy that has recently befallen their company.

And, of course, Moog.

It's really too bad that they didn't phoenix the X-Pole, because I would have been very much up for that. Although I'd like to help them out, I'm really not interested in owning the uQ again, and the Q+ is a bit too much money for me...
