I have the pleasure of sharing an exclusive video with VintageSynth.com forum members.

This is a video of Tom Oberheim doing a walk through of his Voice Two Pro synthesizers. There are currently 10 prototypes in some serious hands.

I cannot claim to have one, therefore cannot answer any questions. I know the members here will eat this up and so here is your

Goddamit, all my granddad does is sit and watch TV with a blanket all day long. I wish mine was as cool as Tom.

If at all, the new Two Voice will be even rarer than the original one.

How many are they going to build? How long is Tom going to run R&D and manufacture? He must be well in his eighties...

I have never bought a synth new in my life (everything was used), but this I would seriously consider!

Edit: Now that I've seen the price, I guess I'll have to pass... :(

I also remember seeing this a little while back. My first thought was, if that's what 4 SEM oscillators sound like in unison, I can see the appeal of the 4 voice! Fatar keyboard and new sequencer are uber kewl additions, plus the same patch panel as the Pro, are all likely worth the wait for those still waiting in earnest.
I am no longer in pursuit of vintage synths. The generally absurd inflation from demand versus practical use and maintenance costs is no longer viable. The internet has suffocated and vanquished yet another wonderful hobby. Too bad.

I was on the waiting list for the SO4V for three years, before finally jumping ship (when TO all but admitted it was pretty much never going to be finished). I had the chance to get on the 2V waiting list, but couldn't quite swallow the drop from 4 to 2 voices. Now, I dunno... :dontknow: :lol:
