I doubt it will have 8 filters.

The VCO just has a strange splitty detuner thing like the minibrute I guess.

Looks interesting, but what are the OSC's? VCO's, DCO's, Digital?

Considering the tune knob seems to entirely be there to create some sort of supersaw effect I'd hazard a guess at saying the oscillator is probably digital. I mean...it IS waldorf yeah?

Well yeah, but the much anticipated Pulse 2 was going to be analog. Not sure what's up with this company, first the Stromberg, then no Stromberg, then the Pulse 2, then nothing, then this? WTF is going on?!? :lol:

I have the feeling that this is a relative of the Pulse 2... possible a low-cost cut-down version to compete with the other inexpensive monosynths

Yeah, all oscs go through the same filter. I personally think that is really cool, paraphonic synths work really nicely with effects like overdrive.

Pulse 2 was always going to be digital osc into analogue filter. I reckon this is what the Pulse 2 turned into, don't see any real need for the rest of the functionality of the P2 if it's just going to increase the price. I love how any cheap analogue synths there are coming out at the moment!

Ahh I see, yes there is an abundance in choice at the moment - always a good thing :)

I'm trying not to buy anything and just knuckle down and get some music finished (even holding off on the MS20 and I have wanted one for a long time) but this looks really cool. A nice addition with virtually no learning curve Is a good excuse to add another instrument ha.

The rest of the functionality: 3 oscs instead of 1...

where did you get the impression tht the pulse 2 had digital oscs? Especially since the page for it says:

"Three analog oscillators in combination with a true analog cascading filter is what Pulse and Pulse 2 have in common. But we didn't stop there. The filter circuits now also offer Highpass and Bandpass modes. We added analog Filter FM and Ring Modulation along with paraphonic modes that allow up to eight voice chords."

Yeah, I like that. This and the Stylophone S2 (really!) are high on my list of want-to-play new synths. Funny how these little, cheap (relatively) instruments capture my attention. High fun factor, I guess, along with immediate gratification? Hmmm ...
Muhahahahahahahahaha!

If I get one it'll be called the Waldorf Racket.
