    1. Is more the other side of the coin to ace. Ace is modular analog with traditional subtractive. Bazille is FM and PD synthesis

      Both eventually feeding in to u-he’s monster berlin modular. Urs has said that owners of one or both will get discounts on the eventual grand project whenever that gets completed

  1. I’m sure Syrum and Kaivo nice, but THIS is the most exciting synth news in years. Now just skip Zebra 3 development and get working on Berlin Modular

  2. u-he makes amazing soft synths. Zebra 2 is incredible. I tried messing with the demo for Bazille, but the constant noise blasts rendered the experience intolerable. As a former Reason user, the virtual patch cables are an attractive feature for me. I’m more interested in Serum at the moment, but at 89 bucks you can’t really go wrong. Why does all this awesome stuff have to come out at once?
