How are we not talking about that yet? Will we see a bunch of new polys soon? What other chips would you like to see?

Because we don't really do electronics here- muffs is better for that? Anyway, cool news. I guess DSI have something up their sleeve again?

Maybe Doepefer will resurrect the A111 high end VCO module too.

Because of the amazing old synths with dying chips that can now be resurrected.
Because of the new things that can now employ this VCO. Memorymoog reissue anyone?
We all know it will sound exactly like the old ones! :roll:

Excellent. I hope they get around to the 3320 filter as well. That, combined with the 3310 env, can be thrown into anything and be really powerful.

There are a number of people here who build and repair synths, and love talking about them at the component level.

This is major news for us Synth DIYers - I've heard rumors that they're $15 each for ordering at low quantities :D I'll need to look into it further.

Oh wow, this is a godsend. Hopefully will pave the way for a few other reissues. Expensive business though, so fingers crosed.

That would be excellent, although the vco is the big thing in my opinion.

That is great news and let's me sleep better at night knowing i won't have to buy used 3340 at 90 bucks a piece should one of the 18 CEM based oscilator chips installed in my synths fail at one point.
