Reissues you'd like to see...

Post by aqualung23 » Thu May 19, 2016 2:36 pm

Korg Mono/Poly would be my top choice. I want one so bad but I can't trust an original for reliable performance. Reasonable to think it could happen given that Korg seems to be one of the only companies interested in doing vintage reissues. But I'm guessing they would probably bring back the polysix first.

I'll play along. I would like to see the things reportedly happening that haven't been offered for sale yet.

The Polysix had a great effects section but today people are expecting a lot more. Korg was reportedly working on an ARP 2600 re-issue. If so, I presume 86% size. I'll opt out of the presumed slim-key controller.

Tom Oberheim has to get that SEM Plus eurorack on market, but will be self-competing with his SEMs/two-voice/four-voice AND the OB-6.

Roland boutique/Aira of the VP-330 strings/voices. Maybe when the current boutique line is phased out some new stuff will crop up.

Akai needs to re-issue some vintage 12-bit HARDWARE-BASED samplers like the MPC-60/S950/S612, they could do it smaller/cheaper/lighter with greatly expanded memory specs.

Yeah I'd love to think I could buy the JP-08 for $399 and get an authentic sounding Jupiter 8 reproduction, but from A/B demos I've seen, the Boutiques don't really cut it IMO. I did mess with the JP-08 at guitar center, and while it is a cool sounding synth module for the price, it's no Jupiter.

SP1200 would be great, pity Creative killed E-Mu. Maybe Rossum can do it?

That's because Boutique is DIGITAL and DIGITAL is like MATSTURBATIONS with p**n.

I'd like to see Jupiter Roland 5 reissued for under $899 dollars with on board fx and iOS capability.

I think a Fizmo reissue could be cool... especially since there's a lot that could be enhanced (or basically just fixed) if they picked up where they left off and design it so you can properly access the features from it's front panel. As a groove box sized desk top module with new and improved software editors, it could be a hit. Or even a decent sized performance oriented keyboard with poly after touch to really take advantage of how trippy it's modulation capabilities are.
This looks like a psychotropic reaction. No wonder it's so popular...

The Mono/Poly is a great synth and would make a neat reissue but I don't think the markets really out there for it. She's such a strange girl that most guys just don't know what to do with her. Now if they combined the features of the Polysix AND the Mono/Poly and rolled out a new/retro monster synth with that ssm sound to compete with the OB-6...

Personally I'd be more interested in some new Moog offering with polyphony.

Or if Yamaha could pull off a CS-80 and Roland a Jupiter 8, I'd kiss my girlfriend's a*s. That way I can't lose.

I'd love seeing a boutique/reface incarnation of the Polivoks - with minikeys, midi and maybe even patch storage. Probably Korg could handle that (oh no, they already got the minilogue).

I don't like the drums, but the drums like me!

I would definitely second that. SP1200 prices are astronomical right now. Love to get some of that crunch into the mix.

A Mono/PolySix would be awesome! They could easily combine every feature of both into one synth with obvious upgrades like Midi and patch memory.

I'd love to see Yamaha do a AN1X version 2 with the ability to load sampled waveforms to use as a third OSC and a knob per function layout :)

I'd be really into a reissue of the Sp12, filters on each channel. Just listen to any of the Cabaret Voltaire from Microphonies to hear how amazing it can sound. +1 on the An1x. Yamaha didn't listen when they hosted that survey.
