In my opinion this is the most exciting synth at NAMM. The functionality and price point slay the Moog Minitaur which I was initially so excited about.

This is like a modern day SH-101. SUper Cheap, super cool. As long as those shoddy looking sliders hold up, this thing might kick some ass.

Those knobs and sliders looks crappy... Nevertheless, it seems like a cool instrument, no menu diving and great sound.

It sounds nice, but a 12 POLE filter? I think he means 12 db/octave; Arturia's website lists it as a 2 pole filter, which sounds a little more realistic.

If the filter is any good then this thing is a double bargain. Even if you never use it as a synth being able to filter external audio makes it a decent $500 investment. The CV interface is an added bonus. I think I might have to have one of these. I get the impression it is going to be a quirky and unique synth. If the envelopes are fast enough it could become a great drum synth.

No preset memory, one voice, the smallest keyboard I have ever seen. Does not look like a winner for me. I wish they would charge more and give me a real useful analog synth. A keyboard version Mopho is a better bet for real performing musicians. It will be a fun toy to play around with I sure.

Like the sound of it but the idea of patch sheets kills it for me... had enough of that 20 years ago, lol. Also no MIDI control of the parameters.

A rackmountable version with patch memories and full MIDI spec would get my vote.

This looks really great. A cool little synth I look forward to having fun with and probably the best thing at a disappointing NAMM this year.

I agree its a modern sh101 they should add a keytar grip.

Its the only synth in years that I am actually thinking about buying. (and I own an sh101)

"This is a new synth with a 100% analog signal path" ... "The arpeggiator is digital"
