        New Evolver?

         

        That would blow my awesome limit to smithereens. If mind is blown too many times in one week, one could go a little crazy.

         

        Although, I remember reading someone from DSi suggesting that they are not making same instruments twice, or something, but cannot find it anymore.

         

        But man this Namm is already at the upper limits of awesome...pretty sure, I wake up soon and I will be cranky for a whole day.

         

        First theres nothing for ages, and then:

        A bit

    • King Korg looks pretty interesting to me.  I'm looking forward to hearing more about it.

          I hope they give the vr-09 this:

          '' Jupiter Version 2.0 Features

          • Three types of low-pass filters; combined with the previous type, a total of four filters are now available''

          .. and some of the Synth Legends, series of free sound libraries (it cannot hold as much or use ARP so is limited)

          I wonder if it'll have release velocity, and what the price will be.  Depending on those two things, I might pick one up.  22 lbs. for 88 keys would be nice.

        Edit:  Whoops.  Beaten to the punch.  Well, I can at least give color commentary -- this looks like a rare beast.  4 oscillators + sub osc per voice, lpf->hpf chain, distortion, delay, feedback, and even what looks like a waveshaping section.  I'm sure this will be expensive as hell, but sweet Christ, WANT.

          I'm so excited, that I must hold my mouth with my hand so that I wouldn't yell compulsively and scare people. Christ, I might start to cry soon!!!!


      • Holy crap, that is a megasynth! Only the sound could let that down, and i bet this one will sound pretty damn good

        • New from Korg: KP3+, Kaossilator Pro+

           

          http://www.korg.com/kp3plus

          http://www.korg.com/KaossilatorPro+

           

           

          The videos look very... umm... DJ.  As for the units themselves, I guess we get new effects for the KP3+, new synths and PCM for the KOPro+, and USB MIDI support for both.

                Sonic State at MS-20


            • i like namm 2013. gassing for dave smith prophet 12, but probably can only afford mini ms-20. but what I really need for gigs is Yamaha MX49, to compliment my Roland 37key rompler

                I am totally mindlessly gassing for P12!!! I probably cannot afford it, but even though I would need a gig piano/organ/e.piano and workstation first, I'm still aiming to get P12 this year, or next, and leave the mundane stuff into the shops, and wait for next Casio synth to do everything else.


            • On the 30th anniversary of the Yamaha DX7, Yamaha didn't even represent us a synth.

              How boring they are!

                regarding Yamaha i have to say they don't get enough flak form synth players...we see enough moaning about Roland but at least they still make "synths"..Yamaha just do R.O.M players now all dirived from the Motif...there's no synth by yamaha in 2013 that has KNOBS and SLIDERS like a real synth should.

                Korg never drifed away from synths and has the bottle to re issue the MS20

                Roland still in there but really should being back some classics -sh101, tr808 but at least they are attempting to bridge the gap with the legacy collection for jupiter50/80

                Yamaha - i used to be just about ALL yamaha gear back in 80's-early90's from the rx11, rx5, spx90, cx5m, fbo1, sy77, ry30, mu80, tg33.

                 

                yamaha don't make synths now...they make rom players.....DISCUSS?

            Working...
