If you go for that kind of size you might as well add the last bit of the keys, which are a fraction of the total size you need for a real CP80 anyways. I wasnt opposing the idea of a true CP80 and CP70 re-release, which is in my view a fantastic instrument sonically, aesthetically and how it feels playing, i just think the ‘no-keys’ thing would make little sense. Same for the rhodes.

You can still find used CP70 and CP80s but given how these were big stage instruments hauled around you have to be a bit lucky finding one that isnt too beat up. A brand new one would be a cool thing, although I guess Yamaha wouldnt hesistate to ask a lot for them. They are (somewhat modified) grand pianos after all.
theyre around $4500

I want a $300 desktop/rack model, not keys...tiny strings with microscopic hammers...I dont care how they do it...

you wont change my mind

Keys, bro....keys!


In all seriousness I have two refaces and never knw where to put them, dont need the keys or speakers (both of which are decent) just wish they were rack units...hate how thats almost completely gone out of fashion

I think your problem is that you need something to set your Reface CP on top of, like a Rhodes MKI or something. The solution is always buying more gear, in any case.

Will PPG be getting a module?

Excited for future digital/hybrid synths from Behringer. I hope the Deepmind name isn't done with too.

Clavinet with Model D Reissue on top of it. On top of the Reissue sits a Reface CP with Boog on top of that, then a Volca Keys sits on top of that, with a Monotron on top of it. Then it's a fridge magnet Rhodes/Arp combo like the plastic couple on a wedding cake.

What's the Clavinet sit on? An elephant and 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢

I'd buy it but only if it came as bass pedals. Like the OG. I would even learn how to play it!

How about a clone of the Synclavier II under $1,500?

I'm sure that's possible for less than $1k, so long as it's a 61-note synth-style keyboard without a separate CPU/VDU. Could probably use the same casing as the PPG Wave clone?

Could do the hardware, with a separate PC app for the software tweaking / sample editing, etc.

Absolutely!

About the only synth where FM doesn't sound plastic, thin and harsh

OMG, that is an awe-inspiring piece of hardware. I'd love to own one even if it doesn't make any sound

I kind of got that impression too. C15 is one of those keyboards that interested me until I got Prologue. But it still has a draw... sell a couple of telescopes or something someday for one I think.

C15 should be a 76 though.... maybe there'll be an option.

It's nice alright. Trouble is, when you think of it, it's based on digi hardware that may become obsolete very quickly. That's the first thing I think. The second is: I reckon I can programme something better to run on my computer.

Wrt the first thing, that's the beauty of a hardware synth. It's always as fast as it was on the first day.

Wrt 2nd: your 'personal' computer is guaranteed to slowdown.

Totally agree though, it's just NI in A Box, and I can do tricks with Prologue code today.

It doesn't necessarily need to be a personal computer. It can be a very low-latency computer that's dedicated for the job. That won't slow anything down. But I see you understand my view point.

Resistors, capacitors and transistors are harder for me to put together in a large package comparable to analogue synths we can buy. Software-based digital synths are not. That's where the line is drawn for me.

Will be interesting to see if they go for the vintage sampler market or if its too niche for them? I think they’d sell shed loads of a slightly finessed SP clone.

Still waiting for more info on Behringer Jam, that has a ‘12 bit’ button on it that might cover some of that sound.

It doesn't even have a MIDI input.

both of which are truly beautiful machines

i would love to own either, seriously

couldn't care less that people moan about the guts of that C15 being a reaktor ensemble spin off, that is a good thing imo - i wish i had that beauty , maybe one day my mrs would kill me and i'd be homeless

so yes, of all the synths mentioned

a synclavier on roids or something with that interface would be amazing - bring it up to date though

it is common knowledge the amount of tech they have employed this last few years and they keep acquiring more across the land in which we live from coast to coast, i expect something like the synclavier may not be a pipe dream

For most people:
- if it runs Windows, Linux, OSX = personal computer.

For me:
- If it's smaller than a fridge, it's a personal computer.
- If one person can afford it, it's a personal computer.

I grew up with big computers.

The appearance of the Poly8 seems to clarify B's strategy in terms of platforms

1) Small modules: Model D, Wasp, CAT, Solina
2) Medium modules:K2, Pro1, Pro800
3) 3 octave synths: DM6, VC340
3) 4 octave synths: DM12, BBG, Poly8
4) 5 octave synths: OBXa

Oddballs are the MS1, Odyssey and the 2600, and perhaps the DM module.

For me, I can cope with the 4-oct keyboard when it's a mono-timbral pad monster like this..

My request for the month (albeit not a clone):

A small-format polysynth/sampler with real-time track recording as a portable 'notepad' for composing with on the move.
I nearly got a Korg Microstation a while back as I liked the size and simplicity of recording songs, but the GM-style sounds put me off. A similar keyboard with multi-track sequencer and better internal sounds would be perfect, particularly if it could sample.

- Must be really simple and fast to operate with no menu-diving.
- One-touch *real-time* recording onto simple tracks, with basic drop in/out functionality.
- Can record unquantised and 'off-grid' in real time to preserve subtle timing within playing.
- Tracks can play internal sounds or external MIDI channels.
- Integrated sampling for quickly capturing sounds on the move and using them to make a track with.
- Only basic sample editing / processing functions that can be controlled direct from the panel.
- More detailed sequence / sample edit functions available via app.
- Ability to store samples with each 'song' so that a complete set of sounds and sequence tracks can be recalled from SD card or internal memory quickly.
- Transfer of songs and samples to computer over USB
- Light and portable.
