looks pretty deec!
keen to hear these 'metalizer' and 'Ultrasaw' wave sounds..all the CV options make it a bit of a lil Phatty killer too (better arp, 2 lfos, aftertouch, multimode filter)

looks like the market is catching up with analog demand, feels like there's almost more analog hardware around than digital at the moment!

not good for GAS

If Yves Usson designed this, then probably "Ultrasaw" will be done using his great "Saw animator" circuit - http://yusynth.net/Modular/EN/SAWANIM/index.html

comparison is inevetible and normal and totally ok.
some people like to argue, i guess.

Good old fashioned demo there, where they show absolutely nothing about the synth other than a few mumbled references :(

Just a j**ka**. He claims to be a fan of Marc Doty, so he obviously can't be trusted to behave as a human. ;)

That being said, if he somehow finds this thread and comes over here to babble on, he gets the boot.

That is one great sounding synth & nice to have the CV/Gate controls too (not to mention the Steiner-Parker MM filter !!!).

Funny how my only synth need latly is an analog mono. So many new options. This one looks great, excited to see if Pulse 2 can win me over this one.

Judging only from the interview on the amazona.de page posted earlier, that's exactly what it is...

BTW, the demo on amazona.de is pretty nice. I have to say I'm impressed by this as well. Didn't care much about Arturia so far, but this is a nice step.

Exactly. That's just what I thought. I'd rather hear the thing - and hear it played properly - than hear a couple of inarticulate people whose opinions I have no reason to respect mumbling vague comments.

This is fantastic. If it ran on batteries ala SH-101 it would be perfect. Defo at the top of my want list.

Anyone got a UK £ price?

From what i have heard it's 499 Euros. So that's about £420 GBP and then add 20% VAT which is £84.00 to get your final price of £504.00. But i think it will retail at £499.00 or thereabouts!
