I love the design, the concept, and the modular integration. I like digital oscillators paired with analog filters as well. For sale blofeld, ms20mini, dx21, broken eps16, well used micron :lol:

This synthesizer looks absolutely fantastic. I'm excited.

They probably still share the single VCA.

He doesn't say they have their own *amplifier* envelopes, just their own envelopes. Not exactly clear what that means but of course you could route different envelopes to OSC levels etc.

Me too. But I'm a little turned off by the price. I mean, it's $2,000. You could almost get a Prophet 12 for that price. I may wait a couple of years until these things start hitting the used market at reasonable prices.

No, this is just Marc post-Moog, where is able to evaluate synths without everything being a comparison...to a certain unnamed synth .....by an unnamed company...unless I named it already... :cry:

I say the early symptoms surface with the microbrute review/gushing and knew he was fully infected by the time the KORG mini-something came along. Or vice-versa, but I knew something was very wrong.

If he bypasses the chance to chime in or correct Dave's use of para-phonic in the next 2 pages, then he is definitely on his death bed.

Death bed or not. I would actually like to see him doing a Pro 2 video.

It LOOKS expensive, so I shall assume it is very expensive. But I hope I get to try it out in a store nearby eventually at least.
