Well okay then.

Thanks - I will.

Still an interesting synth though, loved to try one out someday.

haha sorry if that came off as rude, it just seemed like a useless comment, when the features being implemented are all stuff that aren't applicable to the analog domain. then again you didn't know what to expect
No one cares, no one sympathizes,
so you just stay home and play synthesizers.

That's what was going through my mind while listening.

Looks interesting. Will cost a lot though, when I think a dedicated rompler like that should be less than a $1000. There's probably tons of empty space inside there. It would be cool if they made a desktop Mellotron with the upper and lower LCD's and such on it with basic outputs for $500. I'd buy that.

good god that looks amazing. wish it was affordable!

Ableton and serato sounds like a pretty sweet combination to me, about time they did something like this.

I hope it turns out to be something great whatever it is. People have been using Ms. Pinky with Live for a while but what can they do with Serato? Auto warp marker tracks to use with your live sets? Use Serato as some sort of vinyl/cd interface for Max for live? What fancy thing can they come up with for using control tones. 5 days and counting till they spill their secret. :P

i've written it here before but i very much doubt that there will ever be a Nord Mod G3. the G2 just didn't sell well at all (at least in the U.S.). that's usually not a good indicator for a third kick at the can - much as i'd like to see it.

adding touch screens and additional interfaces will only jack up the cost and price to the further detriment of sales...

better to move on rather than keep hoping and wishing.

just my two cents.

John Bowen Synth Design will be demonstrating the Solaris on the main show floor this year at booth B5912 near Moog Music and Dave Smith Instruments - the companies of two synthesizer pioneers that John Bowen has been associated with in his long career. Solaris is coming!

It bugs me that there are no new upgrades, either sounds or new functionality, for the Blofeld. When they release sounds for the Largo, I think they should also make them available for Blofeld users.
