I must admit this news came as a surprise to me as I thought it was discontinued years ago!

I still don't think there's a 6 voice fully multi-timbral analog poly that competes with the Tempest is there? I've certainly seen nothing I'd want to replace mine with. In fact it's probably going to get more use than ever as I begin integrating it properly with my (small) euro setup. ;D

For some reason, Elektron's Analog Rytm doesn't really appeal to me as much as the Tempest -- as Tempest's ability to deliver a pretty comprehensive multitimbral experience checks a lot of boxes for me. The only other synth I've come across that appeals to me in that regard is the Cheetah MS-6, but they're older and harder to come across. I like that the Tetra has an analog noise source, but programming one (let alone for percussive combos) standalone seems a bit off-putting.
