This should sell by the bucket load. Im going to wait for a bit for prices to hopefully drop but it does look very cool. SH101 for 2012.
Do prices on new hardware like this eventually go down? I was thinking $400 for a preorder is as good as it's gonna get, but I know very little about the market overall...
Oh yeah, sorry, $400 is a steal IMO, seems to be US only tho.
Poly would need, as a minimum, mulitple VCOs; massively useful to have additional VCAs and then filters, LFOs, adsrs etc.
Lots of waveshaping on baord tho so you get a ton of mileage from one vco. Easy to make a tri into square, PW and sine, theres 4 for a kick off. All at the same octave is the only downside.
this looks fun, the demos are shit, but knowing some of the designers work, itll be great.
His steiner vcf demos are great, tonally;http://yusynth.net/Modular/EN/STEINERVCF/index.html
Another huge advantage imo is that you can tunr it on sans pc and get on with some fun playing.
A beast i tell ya.
