I reckon making the synth is a higher priority than making a website. ;)

That maybe true for you, but look at how many people COMPLAIN about just that. They want a return to the basics. (until they get it and then complain...)

The h**l with basics, give me something awesome and new. Innovation rules any way you look at it, and thank god for it. I'm happy the Voyager isn't a mini, the P08 isn't a Pro 5, and the Buchla 200e's aren't just rehashes.

Well, that's not quite what I'm saying-I'm saying I'm all for rereleasing the original totally unaltered... I have no problem with that at all. Especially if it keeps the price down. It's just that if the price is close enough to either the originals (which I imagine it will be), or other modern incarnations (a la the FR XS), I would really have to think twice.

Hopefully I'm wrong...
Do you even post on vse bro?

In the Redbull Academy interview you can still apparently watch on Youtube he says that he had a DMX lying in his attic, but just threw it away because he saw no use for it.
