... unless they make a synthesizer with 2 VCOs and 2 Digital Oscillators and 5 voices+.

Thanks for your attention  :P

And reissue the Poly Evolver rack ffs. Would buy it regardless.

Best Regards

(no just kidding, still like Sequential)

You may not be alone in this.  I haven't played a new Dave Smith synthesizer since the Prophet 12 was in production.  Then again, I don't seem to like the new instruments as much as the old.  I have a fondness for the older days of DSI - the glory days of the Evolvers and the Prophet '08 and its derivatives.  I would have been happy if the company had stopped right there and simply maintained those two lines of synthesizers.  Ah well....

Oh, wow, didn't expect a positive reply ! Partly because I was in a certain "troll mood" and formulated my post accordingly hehe. But yes, I'm serious about the fact that I would like to see a new hybrid synthesizer. I , and maybe you too, hoped atleast for a polyphonic Prophet 3 or something beyond that.

I get the new synths, the new Oberheim, the Prophet 5 reissue, that's all nice, no doubt. However, I will not buy any of them. ( I got 5 Sequential synths already)

And one thing I don't get is that companies never do reissues of their post year 2000 synths. If the premise is correct that the analog market grew the last 2 decades, there should be new people interested in proven designs ? And furthermore, the complete design has already been done, so that won't cause any costs anymore. Is this to much a risk to produce, say, 500 new poly evolver racks, Mophos, or 500 Moog Sirins, Slim Phattys etc. ?
