You may have seen the press item from FXPansion on this new suite of synthesizers that have been modeled at component level for an "unrivalled level of authenticity". We got a fulsome explanation from head honcho Angus Hewlett who's clearly psyched about how these have turned out. Available soon, pricing TBA.

So far this is the most interesting thing from NAMM. Everything else is just a product of playing-it-safe

truly ridiculous amount of features, excited to finally see it in a store. but it'll probibly cost as much as n.i.'s completec instrument box.

Love the NAMM videos guys, but you really need to figure out why the audio incessantly pops during playback. Kind of ruins some of these great demos. Happening on Mac OSX (both Leopard and Tiger) in both Firefox and Safari.

i totally don't get this thing.....

you take the trouble to circuit-model existing gear, but then you build synths that resemble nothing that ever came before, thus rendering any comparisons useless.

that, in and of itself, wouldn't be so bad, but the sounds this guy is demoing are, to my ear, utter crap.

i believe there is literally nothing in this demo that captures my interest at all.

I think it is great that someone "moves on" and creates new instruments instead of just looking back at old ones. They modeled the great vintage "real" sound and brought the features to 2009. That is truly great.

Now let's see the price.
