Could it be a "new and improved" Prophet 5 . . . Or even a Prophet 10? I'd sell my sister for one of those :lol:

i'm guessing it's either:

1. new prophet

2. fx unit

3. some sort of expansion module for the evolver

EXUBERANT CONSUMERISM

Is it a fishing for ideas for future products without paying a market research firm??

I guess sequencer. They don't make a standalone one and they'll need some lower-budget thing to test potential boomchick engine designs in real world.

:lol:

If I wanted to do some market research, I'd just ask what people thought directly - I wouldn't go through a convoluted exercise like this to get it. ;)

I'm guessing that Linn would be in charge of the Boomchick's sequencer since that's what he's known for.

An analog style sequencer would be nice, though.

I've re-read the thread as DB suggested, but I guess my brain is too tired. I'll give it another look tomorrow with a clear head unless someone's figured it out by then.

DB, is it something someone here has guessed or is it something hidden in your posts?

i would love to see this. a hardware sequencer that was well matched to the evolver & designed to take advantage of it's modulation capabilities.

My friend with close ties to a reputable internet musical instrument dealer told me that there were rumors of an 8 voice (or something > 4 voices) PEK being developed.

But who knows. He also said that there were rumors of a Studio Electronics (probably a CODE) keyboard being developed as well....

dB, I'd say it read more like something that someone had actually figured out, rather than a random guess. Would you concur, doctor? :wink:
