Well, they did hash tag digital and blofeld, so my guess is a Model d clone.

Do you think Behnringer will wait at least 11 days to announce his clone?

Like you are supposed to do after a first date?

I wonder if Behringer now owns Waldorf ? A huge synth like this after such a long time, just getting by on little products, like the Rocket / Streichfett ?

Hello yeah! Waiting for microwave xt to pop up on a local market which is a rare toy. Think I might get this one instead if it's better choice in wavetable synthesis. This pic looks like Schmidt synth a bit, hard to tell for sure tho

I hope it's got analogue filters.

Nice find

I believe it says Travel Speed under one of the knobs (the one with frame) in the "Osc" sections in the foreground, hence Wavetable-synthesis.

It's going to be expensive, but I'm still interested.

Is it the much-fabled Stromberg?

Looks like a flagship beast! Also looks like a hartman design.

Hnnngh...is it....gasp....Stromberg???

Damn, it made me restless! And still almost month to go.

I hope it has at least couple parts of multi timbrality.
And boy, would I welcome a step sequencer, that could sequence a couple of external tracks as well.

Woah! Very nice! Maybe it's a hardware version of Nave?

YAS YAS YASSSSS!!!

I was hoping they'd come up with a new poly, I'm already super-excited about it! :D Definitely will be following the news about this one!

Here you go.

Maybe they sold enough of their $20,000 "20" synth to partly fund this.

Analog filters, 3 oscillators, wavetables, 6 LFOs, touchscreen, 5-octave keyboard, granular sampling, etc.
They can take my money now.

Please let this be scanning wavetable and Additive based... essentially FL Studio's Harmor in hardware form featuring analog filters..... this will be an instant classic if so.

I hope the analog filters have character and that it's possible to access digital filters like those on the Q and XT (especially the comb and waveshaper filters). And that it has analog VCAs with overdrive.

I think I can make out 3 Oscillators....

and strangely, the word "QUANTUM" - upper lefthand cornet of the synth

Finally! This is the exact synth I was hoping someone would make! Especially Waldorf. And it's basically the synth I've been slowly building in Eurorack; a Wavetable, Granular, Resonator synth with the addition of Analog waveforms as well!

Being that this one is from my favorite synth company, I am sold! Now to start saving... (they mention $3000+ which seems about right for a synth like this. Probably going to be around $3499)

Yeah, that's the price point that immediately jumped into my head the minute I saw all those knobs and the Waldorf name. Good thing is that the vid clearly says this is a prototype which means Waldorf isn't going to actually ship this beast for another year at least (if at all... snark*) which gives me that much more time to save up the cash. This is exactly what I have been looking for to round out my synth collection.

A Waldorf Hartmann Neuron

Looks great- and love the layout (4 buttons on each oscillator- one for each of 4 types of Waveform Generation/Synthesis)

in a year or so... maybe there will be a desktop version the rest of us can afford (the non- Shadow/Grey version)
