anyone have a chance to play one yet?
are they rack mountable?

thank you
xparis001
I playd one at Musik Messe. it sounded fantastic. I don't think it's rack mountable. its in the same case as a Rocket.

I hear they're shipping out July 1st.

I gave my band's singer/bassist a note for his 40th nirthday that I am getting him one as soon as they become available. smile

Interested to hear more of synth. Not heard anything I don't particularly like but not getting hooked in either. Just my thoughts anyway.
Christopher Winkels
I'm really excited about this, but (and there's always a but) I'm not hearing a lot of tones from it that are reminiscent of my favourite string machines, the ARP Omni and Yamaha SS-30.
Sir Ruff
Thought those demos sounded pretty dang great. I know they tweaked it towards certain machines more than others (not sure which ones), but I can't imagine a more fully featured or sonically diverse stringer in the vintage realm.

It's actually got me questioning whether I need to shell out for the local Yamaha SK-20 I've been eyeing!
Cadence
I think I'll make a judgement call once I hear a few more reviews in the coming weeks. I am anxious to hear how flexible this unit is.

I am waiting for this device to be available.

Meanwhile, the manual is available :

I managed to get a preorder in via Sweetwater -- they don't know for sure when it will ship, but are projecting early September. I think the quoted US price was $369.

Really excited to add this into my setup and flow.

Oh, and I should mention -- it's not yet on the website.

If it had cv/gate I'd have a boner right now. It doesn't and not a big fan midi so yeahhhh ... waah meh

I know this is Muffs 'n' all, but how would adding cv/gate to something like this make sense? hmmm.....

CV/Gate for something that has 128 voices of polyphony?
Christopher Winkels
Yeah, the anti-MIDI thing doesn't make sense with this. It's digital anyway and has gobs of polyphony. MIDI is a natural fit.
Barfunkel
Definitely buying one when it comes out. The latest demos sound sweet. No idea what analog string machines sound, but I can think of a million uses for the sounds I've heard so far.

What exactly would you do with CV/Gate for a polyphonic, digital Desktop Synth ?

In my case, the Main reason I never bought an old string machine is because they don't have MIDI.
So, finally a Stringer with MIDI, which is great news applause

Yeah that's exactly what I thought. "You want to play one note at a time or something?"

get an a192-2 cv/gate->midi module and you can have two voices of stringer from modular synth/sq/random Mr. Green no more excuses for not buying this twisted
that said it would have been nice if there was a cv/expression/footpedal input for that big registration/mix/timbre knob. but no doubt it would have made it more expensive, for just a few who would use it. for this kind of money you should deal with 'special requests' yourself. perfectly do-able 8_)

I have no use 128 voices of polyphony. On a real note, does anybody besides Vangelis? I just want a string synth that isn't the size of a pontoon boat with cv control. I guess I'm alone on that though..

I also would like that, but for the size and price I think the "spreadable fat" will fit the niche just fine. Also I would only buy such a thing if the keyboard could also be used as an external polyphonic CV controller too (similar to the Roland 184 keyboard)

but then you wouldn't have all the knobs, and it's back to menu-diving again seriously, i just don't get it as it is they had to combine several functions. but it seems like a practical compromise. i guess this thing is more for real-time players and less for programmers ...

and besides vangelis there's guys like cowell, ligeti and xenakis who regularly use a lot of voices for clusters/clouds.
the solo section is only 8 voice. to me that is a bit of a disappointment ...
on the plus side i realized that you can use all the fx simultaneously thumbs up

if you want a 1voice cv stringer you can easily built a modular voice. main thing would be those washy fx, methinks ... switch that off and it's just a bunch of saw's.
fac
... or simply buy a bunch of cheap guitar pedals (choruses, phasers, flangers, reverbs) and use whatever synth with CV you already have.

I understand that 128 voices is probably overkill (although once you make 6-8 note chords with loooong releases, you might find out that 32 voices are quickly consumed). But who would want a monophonic stringer?
