USB in addition to the midi in, out and poly chain.

The software editor is supposedly going to be able to be used as a plugin soon for the MoPho and Evolver...so, maybe for this one as well. USB works for that no? (or no?)

Yeah I'm just kidding, being a curmudgeon. ;)

I realise they wouldn't leave DIN off.

Suppose it takes the burden off the regular MIDI chain a bit if there's loads of SYSEX flying about.

Can't help but be a little skeptical here.

Who is the other guy? Is it possible he's just some guy who mocked up a proto in his garage, and Dave was just drunk enough to sit for a photo op?

And why is the only evidence on Twitter, and is now gone?

Of course, Summer NAMM is just around the corner.....

EDIT: I'm getting here late; was there legitimate-sounding text along with the photo?

Perhaps it's because someone ignored their NDA.

The other guy in the pick is Stephen Fortner, the editor of keyboard magazine. The twitter is still on his twitter profile, but the pic was taken down. I very much doubt this was an illicit leak. For one, why would Dave and Stephen both pose for a pic with a new product they didnt want anyone to know about? Answer is, they wouldnt. The only reason they would post it and then take it down is to get people talking, not because they dont want anyone knowing about it.

If you dont want a product to leak then you certainly dont pose for photos with it with anyone.

I think it's fake and they're trying to gauge what the reaction to such a device might be.

I also think it would be freaking PERFECt for me.

Seems they've moved on from bling names, and are trying to appeal more to aliens.

The whole phot removal approach is probably just something to stir up publicity for it. However at this point it may not be real.

What I would find odd now that I've thought about it would be the fact that another product may be released before any definate news of boomchik/linndrum 2 has even hit. Which is quite odd considering they both keep saying it's gonna happen.

i would much rather this than a linndrumm II, i loved the sound of the mopho and a poly mopho would be killer to add to my rig. absolutely killer unison bass !

I can still see the photo linked to on the synthtopia site. I pasted it at the bottom of the previous page.

Also I wonder if this might have some relation to the analogue side of the LDII.

I thought the prophet 08 was a poly mopho. Not that Im against this product, it just seems odd that the linndrum 2 hasn't progressed much further than a concept in the past couple of years.

It probably isn't hard for them to make this from the existing MoPho design.
