what does polyend have to do with it? That's a bit odd?

Also, not sure the market needs 2 new Dreadbox synths every year.

Yeah, not sure about the polyend thing.. anyway, let's see first what it is...

Well if it's a more fleshed out Hades with better envelopes, legato and audio-in, it could be very interesting. That thing had great tone but felt a bit half done with the functionality.

It looks pretty good, maybe it'll make me hold off on getting the Nyx.

It doesn't look like it has a ton of modulation or CV options... the LFO only has the 4 destinations, but it looks like it could do some decent FM with VCO 3. I just wish it had more patch points.

Excited to hear this

I think this looks fantastic for the price. Looking forward to hearing it.

Well then!

Good thing that shelf stand I got for the Neutron has plenty of space for another synth. hihi
Sanys
the new design is great
Panason
Wow, that looks super interesting... looks like they really went to town with the sequencer... not sure I'll be interested if the synth has no patch memories but... is that a screen I can see there?
replicalex
I'm kinda amazed there is not more chat about this... Everyone's banging on about new Behringer knock offs or the "new" Roland Tr8s... seriously, i just don't get it
Not that I wouldn't fancy those either but...

This is the first new synth I've had instant GAS for in ages.. And I have no idea what it sounds like ... or the spec... Or anything really...

It just looks badass! MY ASS IS BLEEDING MY ASS IS BLEEDING MY ASS IS BLEEDING

I love my NYX so if it sounds anything like that or the abyss plus a great sequencer then it's bound to be cool... No?
Anyway can't wait to find out more about it. hyper

I suppose so. lol

Although, vague teasers and lack of info on a new synth has never stopped rampant speculation or an outpouring of GASsing on here in the past...

I just think it looks an interesting new design is all. Hopefully not have to wait too much longer for some better info.
replicalex
New pic... still no more info but it still looks BADASS!!! love [/img]

Panason
If this is the same price as the Manther, it's gonna be tough. But the involvement of Polyend makes me think this is gonna cost more like a grand.

64 pads seems a bit overkill. I assume there's a step sequencer on board and all parameters can be automated per step and over MIDI. It would need a proper screen and that little rectangle in the middle looks damn small.
replicalex
yeah, I think it will be more than the Manther (and the Microvolt). Unfortuneatly you're probably right about the price being closer to a grand... wait and see I suppose.
D_Bowman
Looks like some specs have come in. (snagged this off of gearslutz)
