Is it just me, or is this VERY similar sound and architecturally to a Prophet 12?  I was interested in the Hydra at first blush, but the more I watch and hear, the more it seems too redundant to my P12, which I consider a lifetime purchase I will never part with.

I have only had my hydrasynth for a week but for me so far it is pretty different to the P12.

Oh great, I was afraid someone might say that.   ;D

What do you find the main differences are so far?  What are your overall pros/cons with it after the first week?

Well itís early days but to me they just sound really different. The oscillators/mutant stuff gives a much larger palette of sound pre-filter. The HS seems to sound more fizzy/distorted in general, the P12 sounds smoother.

This has been mostly from playing the presets so far, when I get more in to programming it I will post some more info...
