So Dave said it's likely going to be two products this year.

My money is still on an OBX which just seems obvious at this point (Tom is desperate to use the trademark on a product, lots of videos coming out on youtube about the OBX and in general people demanding more reissues)-Not my thing at all but whatever.

The second is likely going to be something small. My hope is for a Mophox4 successor. Just a small four voice polyphonic synth with a simple architecture. Likely DCO based, monotimbral, single effect engine, arpeggiator and step sequencer, patch memory and that's it. Nothing fancy but it would be nice to see Sequential do a synth under $1000USD made in the USA. I think that it's a category that's missing from their current lineup. It would be an excellent tool for musicians who are primarily playing another instrument (ala guitar, piano) and just need to play a few chords on a poly synth next to them and it would also be a great learning tool for beginners looking at getting their first poly synth. I doubt it will happen but fingers crossed.

I would be thrilled with such an instrument, something of a familiar design (Rev2-based) and less likely to be afflicted with loads of software problems.  The main issue for me would be - as always - the length of the keyboard.  I think four octaves is an excellent size for such a synthesizer, or at the very least, 3 1/2.  I agree, it would be refreshing if Sequential were to revisit the older days when it produced smaller, simpler, and more modestly priced instruments.

I think if such an instrument does happen, it'll be the same keyboard length as the original Mophox4 as to avoid conflicting with the P6 and OB6.

I agree.

Eww. I'd rather a PEK successor.

Yeah, that's kinda what I meant.  Like a PEK "REV"
