The beta testing was announced months ago, guess you didn't get picked.

I signed for beta testing too, and received some time ago un update saying there were 4000 people signed and they would send more info and bla, bla, bla...

Looks cheap, interesting, potentially exploitable. Hope it sounds good.

Well, it's no Minimoog... :lol: But try looking at it more like a musical gadget from a small company. I collect things like those! Thingamagoops, Chimera stuff, Nano stuff... they're fun to mess around with.

It looks interesting. Ive been following it on and off for about a year now. They have posted quite a few sound samples over time also. However Im expecting the price to be something ridiculous.

i can understand the pocket FM synth thing, but i'm seeing a few flaws, like the style over substance keyboard, and the overvisualisation of stuff like delay? does anyone need concentric circles to know what they're doing with delay. and with the sound demo's i've heard i feel like i'd be better off with a bloody ds-10+. i'll reserve real judgement until the thing actually releases. but right now i'm seeing too much style and not enough substances.

Maybe you should just buy a DS-10 and STFU til it comes out then. :idea:

Sorry but I'm so sick of VSE posters hating on things before they even get a chance to hear/use them.

You guys would have been going; "Sliced bread? I can't imagine anyone wanting that. It won't taste as good as when I slice it myself, with the natural differences in thickness that make each mouthful taste extra PHAT and amazing. Yes, sliced bread will never catch on."

same as giani, i got an email saying i was on the list, a damn long list and that they will pick 100 (if i remember correctly) to test it. i think we will receive and email even if we are not picked.

i like the idea behind it, it's done by people from elektron, the guy who did lsdj. i'm sure the brainstorming session was interesting! let's see what it does first.

Anyone know what the beta testers had to pay for it?
