Looks like the video has been taken Down.

Here are the key points if you didn't get to see it (copied from gearslutz post)

100% analog
All analog signal path (VCO-VCF-VCA)
1 VCO: saw, square, tri, noise
Sub osc (sine or square, 1 or 2 octaves below)
Ultrasaw (detune)
PWM (LFO or ENV)
Metalizer waveshaper (sounds like sync sweep)
External audio input
Multi-mode filter (LP, HP, BP, notch)
2 four stage EGs with fast and slow modes
2 LFOs
"Brute Factor" for folding audio back into filter
Arpeggiator with tap tempo, hold, SWING!

The Synthacon (with Steiner-Parker filter) in action. Sounds pretty evil.

Damn this is looking more and more interesting, which makes me wish even more for a smaller version without the keyboard which I don't need.

analogue isnt dead. It just never left us.

Quite a few people here on KVR would like to think otherwise.

Finally Arturia decided to do something useful and manufacture a unique synth by Yves Usson. I wouldn't buy it, I'd prefer more oscillators, sync, ring modulation, etc., but it sounds fine.

F^&*( YES!!! This thing looks so good, and has such a nice snap to it. I'm in the market for a new mono synth after having to sell my little phatty. This thing looks and sounds much nicer with what seems to have a much broader range of tones imfo.

Maybe this is more up your street.

Minibrute, Minitaur, Pulse2... were being spoiled with analogues this year. I need more money. Now.

Definitely up my alley.

How much?

YEs we are definitely seeing a resurgence of analogue.

I hope the big three are listening/ watching.

This can only be good .
