Doubtful, they're not listed as an exhibitor. Sounds like this wolf has it's tail between it's legs....

yes that's true, Akai will be launching these to coincide with the upcoming all analog Roland Jupiter 8 reissue with minkeys

You mean this?

Actually if it is the RW in the first demo the synth sounds very nicely 303ish

The second one might be fake due to the location.

The first one...maybe.

It does sound 303ish, though.

Sounds nice, if real. Love the kinda weird character of the snare. The bass bit seems to miss some important 303 features, such as slide and accent, but i'm sure it can be useful

Okay has anyone realized Daniel Gill in the first soundcloud demo is the infamous akai guy from Musikmesse?

The plot thickens!

Distortion in second link sound super, audio signal in and cv in and out is a must have !!!! I'm happy that I didn't buy Aira series synths. This and my new bought MC 202 is a winner, Korg oddysey later and I'm done for this year.

Thanks for confirming. Didn't want to put you on blast which is why I was being vague. I just figured since you put it publically on SC...

Cue thread meltdown in 3...2...

If this is real, those are some deliciously lo-if drums. Is it just me, or does the howl sound like it is distorting the drums too? I had assumed that howl was a cute term for resonance.

i'm trying to remain optimistic. just wondering: if this thing's finally producing sounds again, why didn't they seek some redemption @ Summer NAMM?

Sounds very compressed on that snare dunnit? Bit of an odd first demo.

Would love to hear more, please! It's a pretty simple demo but the device certainly sounds like it has its own distinctive character.

Interesting. Interested.

Dunno about the snare, but the BD and bass sounded good to me. Looking forward to more demos, preferably with video. (Please).

Not bad for $200, I guess.

Wasn't too excited about the kick, but with some smart processing could be quite usable.

Individual outs mod will bring this to alive.

At last we have some idea what it sounds like.. It took mr. Gill a bit over a week though

Am I tripping or does that sound like some flat "techno" preset beat from a 1994 Yamaha consumer keyboard?

Not impressed. At all.
