Yes, too bad for the other brands, but this is the toy everybody will want! True analog doepfer solid with usb and midi control... a dream came true

400 euros seems like a lot for a simple monosynth with no keyboard, effects, and built in sequencer these days, even if it sounds like it can authentically re-create the soundtrack to Doctor Who and the Sea Devils...

Looks very good but I will like another oscillator.

Wow... this looks like a brilliant way to get into the Doepfer modular without first investing into a complete system. Really, really cool!

I agree totally with Marc JX8P. But still, for a simple monosynth, 400€ is quite much.

For those who recognize 400 is too much for this, here is what you are looking for:

ITS like a far more complex roland system 100 101 synthesizer unit - sans keyboard of course- and as such, is potentially a steal at that price. Maybe deiter doepfer is plannign a coupel of additional chunky modules in the same style, to make a small system..who knows?

good stuff :-D

I can always rely on a good German nerd to make me feel thoroughly ignorant. But it's good to be reminded that I only recognize a portion of the tools available to make music.

I admit, I don't get this product - I don't know who it's aimed at and what it's unpleasant noises are used for. Clearly I'm in a minority, and I'm facinated

Boring instrument and interview.Can it be played to make music or not? That is the original design for this box, yes.

Only one vco,one adsr-env and no Portamento are not enough.the price is to expensive. Mr Doepfer must add some other functions to it and think about the price.I have a MS 404 and with Dark E as second vco it can sound like a huge fat analog monster but i will wait.

oh i think Dave Smith will have it beaten with TETRA ..... these things are fine if you are Kraftwerk..... but i dont 'really' see the musicality of these devices. sorry

I've got one and its a stunning little box of fun, the fact that it has no effects is a bonus, I sold my Mopho to buy it, the Mopho was much more sterile and the user interface was poor, unlike my Evolver. Long live analogue, death to all VA's.....

I'm not really digging the idea of this as a synth. Maybe I can get Doepfer to custom make me a machine that detects all the dark energy in the universe.
