So, Synth Squad will be discontinued, and there will be only Strobe?

Good thing - if I want to buy a synth I want to buy only one, not three. :wink:

Yes - DCAM Synth Squad is now discontinued - it's not viable for us to keep selling and supporting 2 versions!

Strobe2 is just the first in the V2 series, which will be sold individually - this enables faster development and allows people to buy/upgrade to the synths they need.

It's talked about a lot in the other thread, but basically they don't know what it will be like, or if it will be considering that now effects and sequencing are built into each synth. Basically you can use v1 as it is until the other v2s of Cypher and Amber are out... and at that point you can just layer them in your DAW, eh? I can't even think of what Fusor might be?

Thank you. I don't have DCAM but I thought that I may buy it at some point. In particular, the concept of Fusor as a special layering thing with some advanced possibilities (arp, FX) was very appealing to me.

Just bought... Wow! Fair play to FXpansion.

Strobe 2 has that 'huge' sound. And the filters sound damn creamy. Absolutely lovely... :)
