Looks pretty cool, have to say I like the wood end panel.

Damn this looks cool.

Brilliant for low-investment rigs as well. I admittedly wouldn't buy this because of 1) it cannot be rackmounted and 2) the USB outputs only operate at 48khz sampling rate (like the TI).

If only they used USB2.0! Then there could be 96khz.

However I will say that the TI Snow looks like an excellent answer to the Blofeld. Its good to see smaller, cheaper versions of top quality synths being made.

Cool. It's like someone thought "Let's just rip off the control panel from a TI Polar, remove the keyboard and see if it still works! Hey it worked! Let's put wood ends on it too"

I really like what I see so far. Just haven't seen the price yet.
Blofeld/Snow would make a mighty fine compact rig.

The front panel is completely different from the TI Polar. The colour scheme is the only similarity there.

This Snofeld is intriguing, I hope they go for the same price.

I think it will be priced higher than the Blofeld,maybe a little under a grand.

This is definitely interesting, should bring access some more money hahaha.

Which means more new and cooler synths!

it seems like they can do no wrong.
No one cares, no one sympathizes,
so you just stay home and play synthesizers.
