Being of course, very interested and amazed by the V6 from arturia, i was wondering what great physiqual instruments from the last decades that deserved perhaps to have their emulated counterparts (either by arturia than other, numerous, skilled developpers) and so far, founded two of them, both very impressive in their own ways

1) first the Axcel Technos

2) and in second the Synergy synthesizer

any others to add on this early list ?

:lol:

the point is that, taken a bit seriously, you should emulate a human throat behind the instrument itself,

:bang:

...tough task !

There is one I would like to see emulated in a plug-in format that hasn't been mentioned yet: Yamaha SY99.

Subharchord, Trautonium, Telharmonium and Rhythmicon...
Upic, though there does exist a Win 98 version of it, but does not sound exactly like the hardware...(probably 16-bit software...; - )

Oh yeah. I have so many projects that I can't recreate totaly ITB just because of the SY99. There simply isn't anything that can replace it.

Memorymoog and Synthex, though I believe Richard from Synapse hinted he might bring them to " VST " life, especially Moog.

Rhodes (ARP) Chroma deserves a revival.

Quadra, Omni Mk2 and Taurus, but that's mostly my nostalgic ass speaking.

Voyetra-8, but no one will have the balls for it.

Elka Synthex has been emulated by Xils-Lab : MiniSyn'X (actually identical to Synthex) and Syn'X 2 ( Synthex on steroids with lot of xils wizardry and unique features added)

I'm aware of Xavier's effort, but I wouldn't say no to Synapse Audio's take on it.

Of Urs's take on it. Lets hope weather's in Berlin is fine, so Urs's lazy ass wakes up on time and gets on with Elka Synthex thing.

Cs1x really? Had one thought it was a very "lame" sound

Would prefer the An1x
Or Cs10x

I imagine that trying to do a circuit modeling telharmonium emulation could break the mind of the bravest of developers.

I fear for the sanity of anyone foolhardy enough to make the attempt.
