Any chance on "reassign voice allocation" mode like on a Prophet 5? The possibility to choose from reassign/round robin/unison per patch would be nice, expecially with 5 voices and long decay sounds.

Feature requests before the synth is out?  That's a new one :P

This will be added to the TEO-5 and TAKE-5 feature request list.

People are excited about this synth! It's a gotta have for me! Even with Take 5 and PRO3. Oberheim has always been so out of reach price wise.

I'm with you. I've never been drawn into the Obie world, but have been tempted by the OB-6. Having landed a P6 and Trigon, no room for anything big, but the TEO might be the "finally!" moment that brings that sound into my life.

Thank you very much Gus  :)

Yes, as the anticipation for this little "80s" pinstripy Oberheim power package is high, one is eagerly reading every snippet of information in the pdf manual like in those old printed shiny catalogues/brochures as a kid in search for wanted features. And the idea now was just to kindly ask before the actual release so that it maybe finds its way into the product when ready.

And congrats to the design team - this little thing just looks sooo tasty and yummy! Like the perfect package of size, features and looks. Also, being still affordable it will fly off the shelves I'm sure.

Not a feature request, just as a question: would it be possible to use the mod matrix to generate a similiar effect like the octave wave shift trick of the OB-8, explained by Marcus Ryle for the OB-X8?

For me, a lot of music I grew up with and still listen to has that Oberheim sound: Rush, Pat Metheny Group (Lyle Mays), etc. I'm sure there are more. I think Lyle Mays has influenced me especially as a keyboardist. But the cost, both vintage and modern, has been a bit high. If the little TEO-5 has just a fraction of the Oberheim sound and DNA, and I believe it does, I will still be happy. It will fit well with Take 5, PRO 3, and my Korg Prologue. Great as a second tier board for live work too!
