Roman,

Will the oscillators be 3340 based?

I have always loved the old 3340 VCO polysynths. I had a bunch of them back in the day Prophet-5 rev 3, Voyetra-8, Jupiter 6, OBXa and OB8. Loved them all.

I was somehow able to stop myself from buying the DD. but with this, I dont know if I can resist! :omg: I resisted Deckard's Dream as well as the CS80 has never been a favourite of mine. But I will have to buy this one for sure. I always considered the PolyKobol to be a more feature rich Prophet-5,...

My understanding is it's going to be a polyphonic synth with the features of the PolyKobol II but sound-wise based on the Kobol Expander synth. The Kobol Expander uses the SSM2040 for the VCF rather than the SSM2044 used in the PolyKobol II. I would expect the back in production CEM3340 to be used f...

Amazing news! Reissue Pro-One in Euro format by Sequential next? That would be the best news in a long time for me.

Wow! You have crammed a lot into those panel layouts. I like the layout and am very excited to once again have a Minimoog but in a more compact package and the added PWM is a huge plus.

Crow, I want to thank you for undertaking this project. I will be waiting to purchase when available. The CS-80 is my favourite synth of all time. I remember a used one for sale in a music store in Toronto in the early 90s for around $2,000 in excellent condition. I was a teen at the time and didn't...

I would have to choose the Prophet VS (except for the difficulty of repairing it) and the Microwave 1. Both are stunning.

I would take the SEM over an MS-20 mini any day. I like the sound and build quality over the Korg. If I could choose a new SEM or a vintage MS-20 at roughly the same price, then MS-20. Vintage SEM would trump all.

Tough choice, but:

1. Octave Plateau Voyetra 8

2. RSF PolyKobol II

3. Synton Syrinx

MS-20 kit price in Japanese Yen

A few of you were wondering about the price of the MS-20 kit in Japanese Yen. I received an e-mail from Shimamura Music informing me that it is 105,000 Yen. That works out to about $1,050 USD. Still too rich for me but any of you who live in Japan or are planning a trip over there might be interested.
