@STB-  Please give us your thoughts after you have had a chance to live with it a little while. If it's like my experience with a new DSI, it becomes your new best friend.  It gets a little strange when you want to take your new find out for drinks (the wife starts giving you weird looks :o ), but the relationship settles down and you'll find that you have  new musical partner for life!

Sure! I've had it for about a week now. It's the tremendous machine I hoped it to be.
It's super accessible und just fun to play with. On the one hand I was able to get the sounds I wanted out of it pretty quickly, on the other hand there are just so many other possibilities to discover over the next weeks and months.

The built quality is great and - coming from the piano - the keys feel super.

I've had no issues with jumpy encoders so far. Osc1 and Osc2 pitch can be a bit fiddly because they seem a bit over sensitive. Though I don't have the impression that the encoders behave erratically. Still it's a discussion I'll keep an eye on.

Soundwise the REV2 has a great versatility. From very classic analog sound design (as you would expect from an analog synth) to the broader possibilities the concept of the REV2 allows it'll likely become my main instrument for the next weeks. What I'm impressed with it is how focused it feels. While it offers quiet a few possibilities it still has a nice minimal touch to it.

So, yeah: I'm amazed but still at the beginning of discovering what the REV2 can be about. I'm really looking forward to other users sharing their thoughts on their REVs too.

That first one, awesome patch! Instead of showing as much as possible just showing one patch and demo it nicely :)

Yes, I caught that under-the-breath remark as well.  I suppose he may have been referring to the Andromeda's problems - its bugs, lack of company support, etc.  But it's an unpardonable offense nevertheless!  :o

I was about to say! Alesis Andromeda may have it's problems but it's way more of a powerhouse and has way more capability than the Rev 2.

Allright guys and girls I will distance myself from my name sake  :).

Good news: one more week and I will be the very happy owner of a Rev2 - ohh the wait.....

Aw, we're just having fun, Gerry.

I'm looking forward to your Rev2 comments.  I'm sure you'll be thrilled with the instrument.

You can talk up multi-timbrality till you're blue in the face; fact is, I've yet to hear the Andromeda produce anything that sounds as pleasing in timbre as the even less powerful Prophet 08.

Found another short video, kind of like "Berlin" style, playing with filter cutoff and envelopes: https://youtu.be/fJtIeJ35ueE

And another two (quite early Klaus Schulze like - really my thing):

Isn't that what its all about? :) Luckily I have enough cool synths to play with while waiting for the prophet, and cool to see that more and more videos are coming out.

Finally got my Rev2!! Love in first sight. Sounds GORGEOUS. It's an awesome PWM machine, IMO

Here are a couple of video demos I made as of today:

Here's something I did (I've spared you all the full ten minutes  ;D ).  It's not the best thing you'll hear today (or tomorrow, to be honest), and it's not been through any final treatment, but it is quite fun layering lots of sounds which use the gated sequencer.  Nothing but my Rev2 used.

DSI: P12M, Rev2-16.  Roland: JV-2080, JX-03, JU-06, JP-08, TR-08, TR-09, Moog Subsequent 37, Alesis QSR, E-Mu Proteus 2000, Novation Mininova, Yamaha Reface DX, Marshall JMP-1, Boss GX-700, Oberheim GM 400, mostly Yamaha guitars apart from a Fender Telecaster.  Oh, and lots of cables.

Absolute synthnewbie here and the rev 2 is my first but beloved hardware. I made my first patches and a little piece with it, so all sounds and fx come from the Rev 2.
