  1. Good on him for not just trying to make another Moog clone. It has a nice PPG-ish thing going on that would blend nicely with an all analog polysynth. Interesting.

  2. Man that oscilloscope is really cool!

    Forget a moog clone, a wavetable synth that has phase distortion and FM options, this thing is awesome! the FM option has me down already!

    This is an exciting new synth as have many been that came out this year.

    1. I thought about this too. But I kind of think that patch memory makes me complacent with sounds. I am far more likely to flip through sounds I’ve made and presets when firing up one of my synths than make a new sound. No patch memory means I have to get good at knowing exactly what settings I need to make a given sound type (bass, lead, pad, etc). If I really like a sound I make on a patch memoryless synth, I simply sample it. Sure that doesn’t leave it open to augmentation in the future, but I’m not to picky about that.

  3. Sounds really interesting! Dirty but in a quite musical sense. I guess it will be pricey and you’ll have to wait a bit for it if you want one. but let’s see…
