It's fine with me. Every synth doesn't have to have 24db "moog-like" or "12db oberheim-like" filters.

Exactly.

Did you like the sound of the filter on the demo? If so then why would the conformation of some spec numbers put you off? The sound has not changed.

They began hitting US stores yesterday. Hopefully someone on this board has one in their sweaty little paws right now!

This box looks very fine, but for me the absence of an attack stage is a deal breaker... No nice string patches... Would have been a nice live poly...

But that's not what it's for...for what it actually is, I'm liking it more and more. Most famous synths with a real signature sound are limited...some of them seriously limited, like a 303. I have a feeling the limits of the Rocket will induce a lot of creativity.

Heh heh heh ... I didn't really mean 303-style sounds, but basses AND blips and bleeps! That's OK, though, as it shows another side of it. There seems to be quite a few new videos showing off this synth as of tonight. Very nice - I'm thinking I'll have to spend time with one sooner rather than later ...
Muhahahahahahahahaha!

Rocket aside of Shruthi-1 is a big hybrid synth.

I'm pretty interested in this... bandpass is often overlooked on analogue filters

It is pretty nice to have a full-featured synth that is hardly bigger than you common stompbox effects pedal.
Strange omission of an Attack stage on the envelope, though.

It looks so small in the box yet so big next to the Shruthi.

Some more Rocket. Thanks to Depeche Mode.



All sounds from the little synth. Reverb, delay, compression and a little EQing in Cubase 5.
