I knew it. Soon as the Focusrite takeover happened.
Not really. The takeover wasnít exactly yesterday (April 2021). Also, it appears to be due to certain components being no longer available. This does happen. A company I do freelance for had a CoDec discontinued last year so it meant that after nine years of production, they had to discontinue the product and redesign it for an updated version.
In my opinion, it seems that Focusrite is focusing on producing Sequential synths exclusively in analog, while leaving sampling, Wavetable, FM synthesis, drum machines, and similar technologies to their Novation brand.

Somebody else made a similar comment - I donít see any evidence for that personally, but weíll just have to wait and see! Also donít forget that Sequential released a bunch of analog stuff before the Focusrite takeover
