I hope it will sound better than the Creamware PrOdyssey. And could I have switchable filter types (4012/4075) and two full sets of ADSR, please?

Would have rather seen them redo the MonoPoly but this is still super cool.

Is the 2600 next?

Let's hope so.
If they can just make a 2600 that's about 73% of the original size, with improved speaker amps, and switchable 4012/4075 filters for under $1500, I'll be in hog heaven!

Hmm ... and if I buy a Les Paul Jr. to go along with this, I could re-live my high school band years!

I really could have cared less about the MS20, but this re-issue intrigues me.
Muhahahahahahahahaha!

i'll be very happy if it's mini. i've never seen an odyssey in real life, but i've always thought the measurements of them seemed very big and awkward compared to the way they look in pictures. its one reason i've never tried to buy one.

Hey, forums are places for opinions to be voiced. No need for personal insults and remarks.

If you don't like reading peoples opinions and thoughts then maybe you shouldn't be here never mind a mod? Childish remarks like calling people a "knucklehead" won't get you anywhere
Hmmm, I guess you don't understand humour.

Anyway, if you don't like reading my opinions and thoughts on what you post here then maybe you should be here never mind posting comments. ;) Particularly utterly ridiculous things like 'it's unrealistic for a gigging musician to take more than one keyboard'. :lol:

I don't know if my perspective is helpful or not. But I have to admit that I chuckled a bit at the use of "knucklehead."

Nice. Let's wait for details. I read it to be released in September 2014.

Wow, I was away from synths for a while but this... just... wow. A great time to get hooked on synthesizers again.

Please, please Korg, give us a full-sized keys version. :beg:

Heh what are the chances korg will label the circuit boards for modders to add patch points?

This is truly bizarre if true :shock:
Why would it not be? It looks like an official announcement from Korg to me. Not really any reason to be skeptical here... :?
I've seen too many fake leaks and internets conjecture to not be skeptical, but yes does look to be real.

Doesn't stop it being bizarre (but awesome) though :lol:

Hello 2600...
If you've got the skills to do that and you want a 2600 it would be much cheaper and easier to just build a TTSH I reckon.
