And there's the new analog poly. But at $3K.

I'd give it a go, because its' still cheaper and better equipped than a Prophet 5!
Considering parting away from:
-Roland TR707
-DSI Mopho

$250 per 4 osc+sub voice, at MAP. No shame in that.

Let me the first to say it sounds cold and digital and is a total ripoff 8-)

Now that we have gotten that out of the way... :dancer:

No sequencer! :shock: HPF :yahoo:
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

Just when I'd managed to banish GAS to the outer reaches of the universe, along comes the Sub Phatty and now this !!

This looks really nice. Can't quite tell from the photos but it appears they've even done away with those Lexan overlays from their other instruments.

Can't wait to hear it in person. Very excited about the inclusion of a resonant, analog HPF. And four oscillators plus sub?! That's approaching Solaris territory.

Wow, that looks amazing. Great with a new polysynth, all though I still would like a polysynth with a different filter character than Dave Smiths filters.

The band that did this demo is worth checking out by the way. Made an awesome EP last year: http://www.darkentriesrecords.com/store ... ehicle-ep/

Yes--it is a great EP. They are making some very cool early German new wave sounding material and with great production.
