yes, me too.. but only if there was some waldorf-style waveshape modulation... otherwise, it's just a PEK-derivative. And, based on their output so far, static waves seem to be where it's at for them.
Like this: http://www.spacehardware.co.uk/Products.html
Spacehardware Cygnx

Two digital oscillators:
12 sweepable wavetables with smooth and stepped modes and sweep direction.
24 single cycle waveforms which can be mixed using Add, Xor, Split, Phase Distortion or FM.
And an additional PWM mode.

Waveshaping options - Layer, Sync, Fold, Shape, Phase Distortion 1, Phase Distortion 2, Phase Distortion 3

Two analogue filters -
Filter 1: 12dB/Oct LPF/BPF with overdrive
Filter 2: 24dB/Oct LPF/Notch with variable notch mode

Three LFOs and two analogue ADSRs

Edit: Sorry, the Cygnx is only a monosynth

I didn't really take to white face demos, but the sounds I heard with the black version are sublime. For clarification, is DSI involved in this project? New topic?

It should be a new thread. Nothing to do with DSI. Sorry.

I like the sound and the interface looks promising.

There's a blurred out photo of the new DSI synth in the foreground of a photo on DSIs Facebook page right now. Looks about the same size as the P08.

Could be a different brand but not likely in the DSI show room:

I just want to know when Roger Waters and Elliott Smith had a baby and what he's doing on the far left of that photo.

The comments on FB indicate polysynth... but beyond that, fuzz.

I dunno, man. They've said time after time that they're not going to release a keyboard version of the Tetra. I suppose we'll find out soon enough.

Yeah, that's what Chris said it would be. I'm not sure why people think it might be something else, have they not read the thread they're posting in?
