Sounds very drony like the Evolver, which is a good and bad thing. Good because you get the suboscillator which gives it more low end, bad because it won't exactly replace the monosynths that we'd hope to replace it with, which aren't very drony at all.

Surely droniness is just a function of how long your notes are?

Sounds cool but it also sounds very evolver-esque. I'd be curious to hear samples intended to sound more vintage. I think that would be the main reason a person would want to purchase this over an evolver.

I didn't want to release all your secrets. ;)

Thanks for sharing those even if you didn't actually "share" them publicly.
(for those that don't know, these are in fact demos by DocT)

* Yes I'm aware the Micron has sold heaps and sounds really good.

I've said it before but I do like the new DSi products oscillators. Even though they may not be drifty like Moogs of old they do sound good when doing sync and PWM. I wonder if that filter could be worked a little by adding in small modulations like noise & slow lfo > cutoff.

Glad to see you folks tackling the important issues.

I thought that I had read it was multitimberal, but with all the info removed everywhere I can't confirm this. Anyone recall if I'm correct?

It would need more analog chips for each part multitimberal so I highly doubt it is...

Yes, it's 128 part multitimbral, the only issue being that as it's monophonic you can only hear one voice at a time. ;)

Has anyone else noticed there hasn't been any Blofeld key discussion since this got leaked?

Haha. LOL! That's what I figured. I'm not the smartest person by any means, but I was sure that I had read it, and I just couldn't figure out how it could be possible. I just had me a blackie1 moment. :oops:
