Officially I'm still between the Nord Wave and Kronos for a sample manipulation synth, but in reality the Kronos is quickly betaking the lead. It has a more flexible sample manipulation architecture, better effects, and then (obviously) a world of other stuff wrapped up in it. The multi gig sampled piano is particularly enticing. So I voted that I'm getting a Kronos, though I still need to have a hands on test of both the Wave and Kronos.
No announcement yet.
Are you getting a KRONOS?
