I am hoping a Polytwelve from Korg. Polysix, double polyphony, 2 oscillators per voice, 61 key full size keyboard, and unison mode with portamento (can be polyphonic) and a pitch bend and modulation wheel. As well as 64 presets and a patch book for those.
Korg, Casio, Alesis, and Yamaha (Minilogue, WK-7600, SK-1, CT-X3000, SR-16, MX49)
FL Studio 12, VSTs, MIDI keyboard
Non synths include string, woodwind, percussion, and toys for SFX.

Not aiming at you Rob. I see a lot of folks over at GS talking about connecting scopes to their modulars and stuff like that. I thought those guys were sick of looking at screens :lol:
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

Looks like the minilogue has two EGs--one labeled AMP EG and one that looks assignable. Unless they completely bungle something, I think this will destroy the JD-Xi competition. It may not have the same number of specs but it seems more immediate.

A strong hint that it may be a fake. J/K = just kidding

EDIT: let me also add that if those knobs are multi position rotary switches, the items are not evenly spaced. When the knob jumps from the items on the left side to,the items on the right side, it's going to have to jump several clicks.

EDIT 2: notice that the shape of the unit is chopped off on the left? But despite that there is more space between the left vertical line and the displayed edge than there is between the right vertical line and the edge.

EDIT 3: what is wobble? Some new name for vibrato or tremolo?

Maybe something like a Wow & Flutter on the Strymon El Capistan?

A German shop has the following up now:

Korg ARP2600
Waldorf Klassenzimmer room reverb
Waldorf Kassettenspieler
Waldorf Magenbitter bass synth

But they also have the Yamaha Montage renders from last year so they might just be putting up all the rumours.
