They kept that quiet. Looks & sounds interesting. The specs are a little lacking in detail though.

I think that's quite cheap actually, obviously that's based on little info/sound demos at the moment, but it could be a contender.

:lol: indeed. When I clicked on the Downloads link, it came up with a Rack Attack downloads page, so I thought they hadn't done it yet. Now though, the Rocket downloads page comes up.

Never thought I'd get a RTFM (even a subtle one). :D

Edit : What's the story with the envelopes on this thing ? No attack, decay/release the same settings for filter & amp ?

apparently its poly?
It says it will do chords but is "not a real poly"
is that Moog Opus/Poly 800 style or does it have a seperate filter for each vioce?
