So far it's 40 minutes of suits and Jordan Rudess. No Odyssey yet.

Now we're over an hour into this thing. Still no Odyssey. Some Swedish dude from the "Dirty Loops" on now (never heard of 'em). Unbelievable.

I saw "dirty loops" and unbelievable in the previous post thinking it was the good sort of unbelievable, un-muted the live broadcast and immediately regretted the decision. Maybe this will motivate Jonah Nilsson to research time travel to stop himself from this terribad performance in 2015 that ruined his life.

At least they are finally talking ARP now.

So yeah, it's the 85% size of the MS-20 Mini.

They said 86%...but "with the same playability in a smaller footprint", yeah, right
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

Ah, let him have his moment. Bob Moog's been getting all the love for years now.

When did Robert Plant become Roger Daltrey?

Also that wasn't an ARP on Baba O'Riley...it was a Lowrey organ, my mom's Lowrey made that same sound.

Oh well, don't let that get in the way of the hype.

For $1400 it's got a wall wart :banghead:

Wall warts are great, the power supply is the most likely thing to die on any piece of electronics and with a wall wart you can just replace it easily.

There's been a lot of typos on the presentation, you'd think they could get someone to give them a proof read beforehand.

Kind of wish there was less jazz noodling in this demo.

Wonder what's the deal with the XLR output? Built in DI?

Separate power supplies aren't a bad idea, but any time they don't spring for just a couple inches of cord between the brick and the wall my soul dies a little more.

And yeah, pretty tune, but not super great as a demo of the Kodyssey.

$999 isn't too bad.

Is that Jim Henson as Dr. Teeth asking about the Kronos pricing?

Yeah I like the line lumps more than the wall warts too.
