      1. No, no we can’t because I find it hilarious!
        Besides, I had nothing against digital synths. I have many.
        This is an ugly looking box though.

    1. If you don’t like the box, you can in fact buy the VST (Synclavier V) or app (Synclavier Go).

      I imagine the box is for people who want a self-contained hardware synth with physical knobs.

      I’m a bit disappointed that it doesn’t include a full-size Synclavier-style knob though. The original LED switches (so many of them) were cool also (and are somewhat replicated in the iPad app.)

      And of course the original synth had the legendary Prophet T-8 wooden-key polyphonic aftertouch keybed – I imagine you can hook up something like a HydraSynth or an Iridium keyboard though.

  1. If you microwave this you can enjoy a tasty meal of salsbury steak, mashed potatoes, and warm apple compote.

  2. If you microwave this, you’re insane and need a shot of Prolixin, not a synth. C’mon, all of this stuff is a VST in a box, even if it has keys or pads. That’s the heart of anything that’s not pure analog. Besides, who would buy a Synclavier without knowing WTH it really is? Its like taking on a big dog as a pet. 😛 If an Opsix SE runs about $2K, then this is a serious bargain. Maybe not everyone’s style, but still as powerful as $#@!

  3. They priced themselves as if a synclavier in the 80’s but we are in the 2023. This thing shouldn’t cost more than an elektron groove box.

    1. It’s a boutique hardware synth for people who want a Synclavier desktop module. If it’s not your thing, you can still go with the app or VST version.

      1. If you want to discuss boutique, there are many sites about clothes and fashion. I am pretty fed up with the collectors, the fashionados and the fashionistas, taking over musical spaces. I care for instruments, i don’t care if they can make this in yellow or in blue. This is not a catwalk.

    1. Next, you’ll be declaring you’ve never heard of old guys like John Chowning or Max Matthews.

      Hint: Everyone gets old. That doesn’t make their accomplishments any less impressive.

  4. This gear has no any knobs for realtime control, just the single “swiper”. It means, it’s not really made to use for live jams. But it’s also not a workstation. So, what you can do with it? Just layering up to 12 sounds? This isn’t anything exciting at all. You can do this easily on PC or doing some layering with your existing hardware synths. The video shows it perfectly, it just highlights on sounds and nothing, which makes the Regen exciting to use as a hardware synth. Personally I feel the mission is incompleted here.

  5. I disagree, because its in the same general bracket as the Waldorf Iridium, with similar capabilities. There are quite a few near-boutique synths at that price now. Its interesting to see how much they cross over.

    1. Funny you should mention that, since the Iridium Keyboard has polyphonic aftertouch like the original Synclavier! I’d be happy to have both. I’d also like to see more synths with the Iridium Keyboard’s polyphonic aftertouch Fatar keybed.

    1. Oh no resynthesis, built-in sampling or sequencer like the original yet! Sounds like resynthesis is coming at least.

      Nice demo of the Synclavier’s FM capabilities as well.
