What synth is that he has his hands on... that info may help tremendously.

That picture is a subtle hint that the new instrument will have MIDI.  :D

I believe it's either a Roland Jupiter 8 or a Jupiter 6.

Jupiter-6 (which was connected to a Prophet-600).

A collaboration perhaps?

sounds logical... the Prophet 600 was the first synth to make good use of MIDI

That was meant to be a joke though. But I'd take the Sequential jacket!

In all seriousness, MIDI is getting long in the tooth.  Modern computers and processors are capable of much greater precision.

The Sequential jacket was worn by John Bowen btw.

Sooo many possible hints!

Ah, I think I got it: The next synth will sound so harsh and cold that you will need a good ol' Sequential jacket to keep yourself warm.  ;D

If the Sequential Jacket is the hint, DSI has a lot of old products to revive: Prophet 600, Fugue, Max, Prophet 2000, TOM, among many others...


... or perhaps it's not a hint at all.  It could just be a walk down memory lane from a previous NAMM or trade show.

Another question is, will the new instrument be a DSI or a Sequential synthesizer?  Could the Roland connection suggest a Sequential instrument (regarding how Dave was given back the name)?

If there's anything to it, a collaboration between the maker of the Prophet 12 and the maker of the Solaris could be very interesting.  But I suspect more the collaboration - if there is one - would be with Roland.

How about USB-C ports only.  ;D

USB-C to CV adapter anyone?
