Any new classic synth emus on the horizon? Moog, Arp, Obie?

Pondering the few gaping holes in my virtual synth collection. I'm surprised we don't have a "definitive" Arp 2600, Moog Model 10/15, etc emulation by now. The Arturia 2600 doesn't do it for me. We have a truckload of Minimoog emus, and the wonderful PolyM, but we can only get the earliest classic Moogs on iOS. There's the funky standalone Arp 2500 - too crazy to hope for a full Arp 2500 plugin? I wonder if these synths are considered too difficult to emulate properly, or not enough of a market for them (hard to believe). Supposedly the next PA update will fix the broken bx_oberhausen - I'm looking forward to that.

Synapse is working on Prophet-600, OB-X, and maybe at some point also a Memorymoog.

All of those would be awesome... The Legend is in my top 3 - wonderful synth.

Isn't Synapse Audio's Legend already a kind of Memorymoog Lite since it is polyphonic? The Memorymoog was basically 6 Minimoogs in one, plus added extras such as an arp.

I'm pretty sure that Gunnare is working on the 64-bit edition of his Memorymoon as he did for ME80 and for Messiah.

There is also probably something on the fire at Xils-Lab.

Has Synapse given a time estimate?

I think Gunnare's role is more or less limited to making factory presets. Chris Kerry does all the programming.

I've read somewhere (but I can't remember where) that NI hasn't dropped FM8 and plan to release a FM9.

The memorymoon thing doesn't get close, so a Synapse memorymoog would be great, as would a U-he one, but I recall reading he said he's made a promise to not do it.

My dreams to be released one day as plugins :

Wow did not know about all of this. And as of late, and I don't know what it is, but I have had this need for nostalgia in my keyboard sounds. Guess everyone is on the same page. (and I don't mean synthwave...which is actually cool, but not what I mean, ha)

Hope the OB-X is next! Is there much point in the Prophet 600 now that we have Repro-5? I really don’t know... is there much difference?
