Not a bad solution, if you can afford their stuff.
I keep forgeting about this company.

I hate sounding like a corporate manager, but this kind of stuff is where it's at. I would would bet a million hundred dollars that the big three are putting all their efforts behinds something like this.

Huh? It's just an expensive, ergonomically dubious computer, isn't it? Running Windows, to add insult to injury.

I guess it's appeal just depends if you are a fan of the plethora of available softsynths and not having to bring a computer/keyboard controller combo everywhere.

I would like something like this.

Image

The top 32 knobs can be MIDI for a 32 step sequencer able to be routed as a modulator or sequencer. Faders are mixers and fully assignable to anything else. Route external audio or manipulate internal sounds.

USB and MIDI, VST capable software Editor. 2 MIDI INs and Outs (A & B). Uses memory cards to load your own samples for wavetables and arrives with a new technology.

Sonic Emulation Analysis Resysntheis In Negative (subtractive) Grains
Partial Additive Incorporating Nosie

It takes small clip of audio and reads ALL of its data (freq/spectral/length, pitch etc) and distributes all of that info across the synth as controls and settings. It also has a groundbreaking Extrapolation Engine where any sound it loads can be recreated through synthesis and seamlessly looped. By picking sound categories and sonic attributes it will apply the proper ADSR and keymappings etc. Lots pf Random/Scrambler features.

There are ports on the side to connect the 2nd release a drum machine with similar technology, but that's another story...

I'm really in love with LA synth sound and think that Roland should release a true Super LA synth. May be something like the the D-70 but with a true expanded engine of the D-50. I'm still somehow waiting for a D-8000 up to now :idea:
These synths are not from the big three, but I also want Clavia to make Nord Micro Modular G2 and Novation to make an expanded Novation Analog synth.

The Roland 9001: the future of musicians entertainment.

Here you have a:

* Built in computer with internet access so you can browse the latest VSE threads of what you should buy.

* A microwave that pops popcorn better than a MicroWave.

* A TV for whenever you need the latest and most up to date news.

* A versatile Analog[1] synthesizer with included step-sequencer!

* And a copy of Marc Doty's "Analog and Me" thrown in to get you on your way to synthesis's paradise.

[1.] Virtual analog utilizing the latest in DSP technology.
Well fffff.

I've heard that this could happen, but I always thought it was an urban legend. A myth told by girlfriends and wives to keep the studio at bay, along the lines of "If you make an ugly face it will freeze like that." 'if you buy another synth you won't want to buy any more."

Is it really true? Please submit yourself to the nearest detention center for examination and reprogramming.

With all the great synthesizer line, I also always dreaming of a re-cycled synth tool box from Yamaha. May be something like this Loop-FactoryX (found on the net), containing most of their older synth, in one interface and one synthesizing environment:

Also, an Anniversary model of the CZ-101 with more features for cheap would be fun :)
