This is incredible. Great sounding synth. Dave Smith rocks.

This is potentially bigger than the MS-20 Mini for me. A real full featured analog/hybrid synth that can truly compete with the classics of the past. Where the Prophet '08 felt like it was somewhat built down to a price, this seems built up to a quality.

It'll be nice to have a great analog polysynth with all the sub oscs and stuff without having to poly chain my Mopho X4 to a Tetra, run two power supplies (built in power supply, BTW!!), four channels on a mixer, etc. Dedicated 10-key key pad is great for those of us that want to play live and select sounds without scrolling. Seems perfect!

Nick, PLEASE check out what the deal is with the oscillators; I've heard they might not be analog, though they sound great! Love the analog low pas AND hi pass filters too!!!

I can see how this is bigger than the MS20 - it costs 6 times as much :-)

Yes, but it is an amazing value. For those of, us who have wanted a truly great, no compromise polysynth. Like an Alesis Andromeda, only reliable and stable.

I say this is a bigger deal because several manufacturers have been bringing analog monosynths to market for some time, but no one has done a full on poly beast. Dave came closest with the Prophet'08, but this is way cooler and more well specified for pro use with the power supply and key pad, not to mention the polyphony, and the breadth of the engine itself.

Waw, this is the best NAMM 2013 product for me so far (prophet08 and evolver tech, so I guess a combination of DCO's and wavetable, love that architecture) Can't wait to play it.

"reliable and stable" what a joke, i heard this thing has serious problems like the Tempest. Dave Smith can shove that Prophet up his ass. Finish the Tempest first scumbag, its been two years and its a $2000 disaster. Get your priorities straight and fix the Tempest before all of us who bought one and are disgusted by it, file a major lawsuit against you, you greedy prick!
