Some what weirdly however they seem to be modelling the old UI rather than taking advantage of the cool things Arturia did to make it more playable....

Price TBA but should arrive later this month apparently

    They just keep coming, coming and coming :confused:

  • Says 23rd Jan. pricing TBC.

  • Doug shows off the Arturia one to give you a idea of what it might sound like!

    Yeah. I’ve got the Arturia one. Is ace. One of those synths that’s on a lot of records I liked back in the day - Laurie Anderson had one :-). Seemed so unobtainable so nice to play with it. What is good about the Arturia version though is it has quite a good UI for editing sounds. The FM engine makes the DX7 look very simple

    Zappa used to write his classical stuff on one too - back before he found people who could play that stuff

  • Better start saving now for this one...

  • don't be too much hyped, from that ^^^ description it looks it's just controller app for this hw:

    Wow, let's hope for the best 👍🏼

  • aah ok, thanks for correcting !

  • But from the description it looks like more a light version rather than something like the Arturia Synclavier V.

    „Synclavier Go! (for iPad) and Synclavier Pocket! (for iPhone and iPod Touch) re-create the original Synclavier II FM Synthesis engine, with a touch-screen interface inspired by the original hardware. The Synclavier DSP Engine – used by Arturia in its Synclavier V product line – is a faithful recreation of the FM- and Additive-Synthesis functions of the original instrument.“

  • The original synclaiver had sampling and disk recording in as well - I think the feeling when they released the software version was that that aspect had been long superseded by other things

    If you've purchased it, yes.
    The really unique element however is its very own way of doing FM synthesis which is unlike what you can find in Yamaha FM products and their derivatives.

  • Now confirmed, launch date 23rd January $19.99 USD to 31st January.
