Vostok 2020

Looks/sounds pretty nice!!! Anyone thinking of picking up??? It's definitely not cheap retailing at $5,299 at US retailers. Not sure how this stacks up against the recent ARP2600 clones but this synth definitely deserves some discussion.

I'm sure it's badass.

I got to play one of the originals several years ago and there just aren't words to describe it.

Looks great but that keystep in the video kills the vibe a bit, or is it just me? :hmm:

Interesting that it has both the pin matrix AND patch cords. Anybody know how they work together? For example, if you send two different mod signals to the same destination, one via a patch cord and the other via the pin matrix, does one connection override the other, or do they sum together at the destination mod input?

if my memory serve (for v2, but I assume 2020 is the same for this aspect) it didn't override, so they summed, sort of. but not so obvious.

Try one out before you buy. The older ones were basically ASol modules behind a big faceplate and the pins were basically superfluous. This looks the same superficially. For $5,300.00 I would shop around. You can buy an older one used for $2,000.00, but it has different knobs. Maybe there is more to it.
I would get a Buchla Easel or a Serge Animal, or an AJH Mini System, or an Aion A1 Moog modular euro, or an Erica Liquid Sky and then onto anyone of them add an Eventide Eclipse for the same money.

Wow, pins. Looks better than a Semblance.

How many 'pins' does it come with??? I'm curious on the pin matrix specs and how that specific block stacks against a Hinton PinMix as an example.

I think the other video's are better:



No one gets a Power Synth only to make dull songs :foul:

From all the new synths out there this one gets me the most excited (besides the Erica ones), one of the few synths that gets me GASSED hard. But I won't I have the money for it in a while :(. Maybe if I sell everything I currently have and only eat rice for 2 years while living in a cardboard box under a bridge to avoid rent, hmmmmm.....difficult choice.
