Plenty of videos of it have already hit Youtube.

Spoiler: It sounds like a synth.


Nice reverb though.
Edit: Pre-orders are up as well. As expected, it's priced to match the you know what.

I would find a single digital oscillator rather stiff.  If there's one thing that warms up nicely an icy cold digital wave shape, it's a second icy cold digital wave shape to beat alongside it.  When designing a digital pad on the PEK, I always feel the need to enrich its tone with a generous amount of oscillator beating, including from two analog triangles.  But one digital oscillator?  Brrr!

It's a bitimbral synth, so maybe layering two patches that only feature digital oscillators would be the simple solution. It is also said to contain the ensemble effect of the PolySix, so that could help as well.

Also I guess as the digital oscillator seems to be able to run different code then I guess you could stick a dual oscillator in the slot, depending on dsp grunt.

That seems to be the killer app on this thing. Do you want to write your own oscillators (or load up other peoples)? Then you might like it. Otherwise, its limitations seem crippling.

Love it!! (Although it seems to be something that's just bundled with the Odyssey FSQ and not necessarily available on its own)

Yeah I think you can only get it if it comes with an ARP Odyssey full size...my issue...still no Midi In....what the heck?

Not so much a prediction, but a wish... a new Memorymoog.  Pretty please.  With 2 LFOs this time.  Iíll buy one, I promise.

All I want from Moog is a four voice Sub 37 on a four octave keyboard. Multitimbral in a sense that each of the voices can be split, layered or chained (for polyphony) in any manner the user wishes. Even at four voices the versatility of that Moog alone would sell incredibly well.

Iíve never really understood the appeal of a four voice poly... 6 at minimum seems essential to me.
And Iíd prefer the Minimoog 3 VCO architecture over the 2 VCO Sub37. But I think we agree it would sell. Like hot cakes.

Well I think if Moog came out with their own version of the Oberheim Four Voice, even despite its low voice count it would offer something most Poly synths donít which is multitimbrality. Essentially four individual dual VCO (plus sub) Monos under one hood that can operate individually and together. I just donít know if Moog offered their own version of the OB6 or P6 if it really offer anything different in the Poly Market. Not saying it has to but it may start to get redundant after a while.

Well the FM synth everyone* has been asking for might be here: https://www.elektron.se/products/digitone/


*okay not everyone but a good number of people

Looks definitely interesting and seems to sound great. Kind of like a pro version of the Volca FM plus some bells and whistles and minus 2 operators.

Other than the Quantum, Polylogue (for some), and Digitone (for others)... was NAMM a yawner?  Did I miss something?

Today, but arenít the new products announced day 1 so folks can spend the other 3 days pawing and drooling???  That would be the best marketing scheme... most bang for your buck.

Yeah, all the main stuff should be announced by now. Let's not forget that a lot has already been announced pre-NAMM this time.

But I agree. Quite a yawner, or rather unnecessary as an announcement event. Looks like DSI, Roger Linn, Moog, Teenage Engineering et al. did the right thing.

NAMM is quite a let down from the glory days of the Prophet 12 and Sub 37.

But no, I take that back.  There's this masterpiece.  I'm thinking of getting two and running them is stereo:

I like it! 3rd best announcement after the Digitone and Quantum. I'd take four, though, cause quadrophony is where it's at.

What a disappointing show. Roland and Yamaha did absolutely nothing of significance.

You can't say so. Yamaha had at least a countdown.
