  1. wow want to see a demo – I am intrigued
    ….
    update: there are demo videos on the site, it looks awesome -now I just want to know $$$

  2. There are sound examples on their website. Sounds pretty interesting, especially the granular synth. If it happens to fall in line with the OP-1, not a bad thing, having a portable, small device that gives you multiple synth engines to work from and FX. It does sound a bit bright but nothing is wrong with that if some unique sounds are coming out of it.

  3. Looks like alot of fun and the 8bit modes sound really interesting although the FM is particularly harsh. Hope it’s affordable.

    1. I think they humbly bowed out a while ago. Unless they pop up with the very strange OPZ and release it to a very odd audience of music/video producers, this thing could do well depending on the price. OP-1 released at about 900 bucks. Hope this thing is solid when its release time.
