  1. This one should be interesting! Just wondering why they ruin such great synths with that horrible graphic style, e.g. evolver font? Think the Prophet 08, what an beast and it looks amazing too! The reason is: no ugly peculiar fonts or graphs used. DSI should follow although Korg or Clavia look, what do you think?

  2. I’m sooper thrilled and excited to hear it! I agree with you josh. Looks like
    a low budget effects pedal… Although I’m pretty sure its going to be summin special! I’ve been eying out tb303 type analog bass synths which are few and far between considering the popularity of the original . I reckon that despite its dodgy Lamborgini yellow appearance it’ll sound like a million $$$. Now to fly to cape town to hear one! God bless africa!
