I'll probably get the V if I eventually update the Collection.

Is that a vote?

You should be OK, but isolate yourself for 2 weeks to be safe.

Bought the V (no brainer in my mind) - imho it sounds great and has some interesting tools under the hood. I’m also planning on buying the Synapse as well, although probably will wait until it’s on sale. But honestly: I don’t consider either as capable of sonically being exact copies of the Xa - although I expect that Richards will be capable of sounding pretty darn close.

Why both? Why not? The more you play around with something like the V, the more you get to know it’s personality - which almost assuredly will be different then OBsession. There’s something very cool about Arturia/Synapse/Brainworx etc. starting with the mandate of producing a focused emulation of an Ubersynth like the Obie Xa, and then running their version in it’s own direction - by the time that they release it; it will still likely retain the characteristics of the original mandate, but it will be so stylized that it will be more about Arturia and Synapse (in this case) then about the Xa
There's really no reason not to wait until Black Friday to buy anything at a certain stage of your collecting career. Because it's really hard to beat 50% off. Which for some people means they can buy 2 for 1. :hihi:

So companies may not actually miss out on the amount of sales, but may actually miss out on 50% profit. That goes for every software company, if people have enough patience to control their gas.
