I'm convinced Synapse Audio will lose money if they don't release Obsession before Arturia's sale ends.

Now we're going to find out.

** EDIT ** Yes, I have a duplicate in the poll. But if I edit it, we lose all the votes so far. So I'm leaving it. If it bothers you and keeps you from voting, oh well.

No we're not, we're going to find out who can be bothered to post in a wagtunes poll i.e. not me, for example.

Not interested in the Arturia's one

Will surely demo the Osbession when it's available. The 80's synths recreations are not something I'm particularly interested in, but if it sounds good and offers some unique sound character I can't get elsewhere I might buy it.

I don't really find my option in this poll. :D

I don't really need another synth but if Synapse Audio will do one that I will like then maybe one day I'll buy it. Eventually. But it will be more because I'll have spare money for a synth not because I particularly need OBXa.

So I would vote for an option like 'Maybe I will buy X synth one day'
don't use plugin/s in this topic! It has aliasing at -196dB and 60fps

Uh... I said Obsession. But that does'nt necessarily mean I'm ruling our the Arturia.

It basically means.... I'd like to hear some more demos from Synapse.

I will buy the Synapse if all these conditions are met:

They release a demo and pricing before the Arturia introductory pricing ends
It sounds better than the Arturia to me
The price is not far off the £99 mark

Otherwise I will buy the Arturia.

Actually, yeah, I do. Already we can see that Synapse will lose sales if they don't come out with this soon. I suspect it will be quite significant given Arturia's doesn't sound bad, something quite a few people agree on.

Yeah, I have a duplicate in there. But if I modify the poll we lose all votes counted so far so I'm leaving it.

You're drawing conclusions from 11 votes in a poll with duplicate options.?
