Don't any of you quit your day jobs to go into comedy.
It has become somewhat cringe worthy but at least now it's just bad jokes. When Dune 3 is released that's when the bitching will start. "Why didn't you add the feature I wanted ? Why ? You suuuuuuck".

I'm sure Richard is working hard and it just as anxious to release D3 as we are....or he just enjoys torturing people. :lol:

I'm sure it's the former and not the latter.....
Dune 2, being as great as it is, Dune 3 can't possibly be bad unless they removed things. As I am short on funds, upgrading will depend on some unrealistic expectations on my part because I simply can't afford another synth right now unless it is out of this world earth shattering. That scenario is unlikely since this isn't going to be a brand new synth like Dune 2 was to Dune.

But we'll see. Richard might surprise me.

The Dune 3 update should expand the range of sounds it can make so open up the opportunity to create and sell new sound banks and thus recover the cost of upgrading ? :)

Yeah, I'm sure. Probably anyway. But on a purely musical level (I actually write lots of music) is it going to give me anything that I don't already have in Dune 2 and, for that matter, other synths that I already own? Unless it incorporates "new" synthesis algorithms, it's doubtful. I mean Dune 2, adding spectral, granular and physical modeling synthesis to it, just for starters, would in fact create a different beast that, along with its already unique features (8 voices all individually programmable for starters)

THAT is something I would pay for simply for the purpose of making music without any thought of deriving an income. Because that would truly be one amazing synthesizer.

But I think you and I both know that the above scenario isn't going to happen.

More likely than not, Dune 3 will probably add the following:

More filters
More LFOs
More MSEGs
Wavetable Editor
More and/or better FX

None of the above really turns Dune 3 into a new synth. Sure, nice to have, especially the wavetable editor, but by no means a deal maker for me.

Of course the upgrade price will also determine whether or not I upgrade. $99? Probably not. $50? More likely.

Ultimately, it's all going to come down to what Dune 3 has to offer.

I'm just not as excited about this release as others here, even though Dune 2 is my favorite synth.

And maybe that's part of the problem.

I wonder if there will be an additional price reduction if one owns The Legend and Dune 2. It is certainly a trend that I like and means that I am more likely to purchase!

But if you use a touch bar it‘s getting more expensive.

There should be a special price for us : we've promoted the Dune 3 release (well, our own way) more than anyone. :D

Dune 3 release is like a Nostradamus prediction : we talk about a lot but it never happens.
