I wonder if that detuning was intentional or if it has a difficult time staying in-tune? :unsure:
Yeah, no. That didn’t sound like a healthy synth.
The cool thing about fretless is you can hit a note...and then renegotiate.

Yes. I assume they’re demoing preproduction units, and that one sounded like it was either detuned without him realizing it, or something was wrong with its innards.

I thought that's what you meant. I'm not used to synths enough to recognize it being out of tune just yet.

Pretty psyched to see what Behringer does with their "clone" of the old CS-80.

I wonder if Yamaha is going to make theirs as enormous and enormously expensive as a real one.

Looks amazing. And complicated. I was hoping they'd do a bit of a Deckard's Dream kind of thing instead, but cool regardless!

It sounds good, but out of tune for sure.

I would really love it if they made a version of their model D that was polyphonic. I really think they'd be heroes of they expanded, rather than just reproduced, other people's stuff at affordable prices.

You know, for the price of a Matriarch, you could buy enough model Ds and make a paraphonic synth... :whistle:

Pretty sure that dragging around 6 racked model D modules and a midi controller is not as easy as putting my Prophet in a bag.

All I really want is someone to make something that works like my Prophet, and sounds like a Moog. Again, something Behringer could be doing that would make the world hail them as heroes.

Yamaha announced they were looking a making a re-issue so I think that’s why old Blackbeard suddenly rushed up a render of a CS80.

Be interesting..there’s a lot of custom IC’s in a CS80.

Wait, what?

They need to stop announcing clones of every synth that ever became a popular VST and finish the Oberheim clone. They sure like to announce clones of complex polysynths at a brisk pace, but the team they have working on them does it in their spare time, basically. Beyond that, it'd sure be cool to see this, and I'd want one and would have to stop myself because after years and years owning the arturia plug in, I still can't program the damn thing for shit.
This is an excellent rectangle

The Novation Summit was just released: https://www.musicradar.com/news/superbo ... -polysynth

Good news for me as this will probably put used Peaks in the 700€ pricerange which means I might be able to finally get one.

True, but I guess they also want to stagger everything and gauge public reaction whilst also trolling every other major brand that can't do things as well and for as cheap *cough* Roland, Moog, Yamaha *cough*
