nah, an ESQ missing the original waveforms wouldn't be an ESQ that users are happy with. they'd get slagged for it. i'm guessing the legal end of it would be a mess, but i'd love to see them pull through with it.

i've owned (v6) or tried all of them except for this new one, it's a hell of a deal for sure (unless i wait until after v8 has been out for a while and maybe have an offer of $199 again). it's a little over $10 a synth for all of them, i think. i'm trying to set aside money for the MC-707, but i might go for it. too much value to pass up, even if i hardly use most of them.

yes, the Synthi was very impressive. do check it out when you get a few minutes.
