Using something like this can be really useful, especially if used subtlety in ambient music.

Just because it's all there doesn't mean you have to use all of it all the time.
That’s exactly it. When working on the sounds, sometimes I’d just find myself listening to a single vco through whichever filter with nothing going on modulation wise and was just floored with the pure tone. That kind of stuff is what this synth is about as far as I’m concerned and honestly that’s the kind of stuff you really need when working on records with bands.

Or with some oscillators and envelopes, with almost no modulation, you can create almost rompler quality instruments like piano's and Rhodes. It is nice to have a ton of modulation, but that is a different thing then how expressive and versatile the components actually are though. Thankfully this synth has about the best in the business.. probably the best actually, but who knows for sure..

When I first saw this I was like "Oh man, they finally made a polyphonic Pro 2"
Then the disappointment fell...just another monosynth

Oh well.

I noticed both VCOs have sync buttons. What do they sync to? Oscillator 3? Each other? Selectable? 3 to 2, 2 to 1? The mind wondereth.

are the wave tables similar to evolver or p12, or are we looking at something new? user wavetables?

OSC 1 syncs to 2, and 2 syncs to 3.

New wavetables!

I know right! Nice to know my whimsical needs are being implemented by more companies.

Yep. And another mono. I’m back on the fence.

I look at this more like an ultimate version of the Toraiz AS-1 more than the Pro 2. Seems to build on everything that does well and adds the wave tables and filter choices. I dig my AS-1 and Ive been seriously considering a P6, but need to give this some thought...

Pretty damn cool. Can you chain two of these together for 6 note paraphonic?

No polychain currently.

I should point out that the VCO design is new and unique from the Prophet/OB 6! There is wave shaping on the saw and triangle waves in addition to the square wave when shape mod is used.

With all the great synth designers that must’ve been in the room, together with Dave, while creating this synth, nobody thought of how cool it would be to find a way to route all 3 analog filters (that were already there inside the synth) in series to create wild formant bass sounds?

The VCO's sound similar to Moog One in demos. Also the added ladder filter makes me feel this is some kind of Sequential-Moog collaboration..

looks beautiful. addresses the issue that some people had with the digital oscs on the p2. probably be over 3k over here in oz, but it’s nice to dream.

been waiting a year for this to come out. kudos to dave and team, still running sh!t in 2020!

now i wait patiently for demos

Is the VCA analog?

Are the envelopes linear or exponential (or better yet, continuously variable between the two)?

The look of it gives me a serious TVP vibe, prolly be over 4k in oz like the pro 2 was.

Other than the name, this doesn't seem to have anything to do with the Pro 2. I would look at it as a completely new/different synth.

While the digital synth engine it packs certainly looks intriguing, it isn't really in the same space as what Sequential seems poised to announce. I have room reserved for both if they live up to expectations!
I assume you got the same email, but looks like the osmose won't be at NAMM. I was hoping to play with it.

(I also pre-ordered early on)

I speculate that
DSI likes software envelopes. And they don't care about user defined curves. So fixed curve software envelopes

Is the special edition limited production in any way? Or is it going to be available for the foreseeable future?

likely start off linear

I speculate that they are mod sources and destinations like in my other DSI synths so you can adjust the curves to some degree yourself by feeding itself back to itself

That’s what I do on the Pro-2. You can shape the envelope to get as snappy as you want this way. I presume the Pro-3 works the same way. Some of the demos sound very bubbly and snappy so I wouldn’t be worried about that!

Yup, this works for sure.

It would certainly be far easier/faster to just have a setting for exp-lin though, just saying, it should easily be do-able with software envs.

yeah for sure, i often have a few mod slots used just for the envs.

Deepmind implementation is nice and easy, they should clone that

looks good and sounds very very nice

cant say id be happy having 3 really nice filters but only able to use 1 at a time.

spose gotta make room for a four in the future.
