Maybe it's just me, but i'm not that impressed. :? Or maybe it's a bit hard to show what this beast can do in only 7 minutes...

I'm with you there!

What was interesting was how quickly the guy was able to radically mash up the sound.

Maybe it's that the Neuron doesn't actually make sounds we've never heard before, but it's sythesis approach is a genuinely new and unique way of getting there.

It does seem to have a prophet vs/ppg vibe from what I can tell. Maybe it's just that price tag...

I'm definitely not sold. all I heard was the same Saw Wave throughout with some Oboe and Bell mixed in. Any synth can make a Fat Detuned Saw and throw in a good Modulation Matrix and you can do all that same stuff. I was hoping to hear something wonderous, not a Virus Clone with some Tassman stuff thrown in.

I would buy it for a third of what they're selling it for because it's the only thing that can do what it does. I would buy it for 2/3 of the asking price if they let you build your own models. I really don't think they're going to sell very many at the current asking price, though.

I thought that demo was cool actually. I dont think that synth would fit the type of music I work on but its pretty interesting anyways.

:zzz: :shrug: If that was the demo for a product that I was trying to sell I would be pretty disapointed, I can understand that they were attempting to show how easily you could mangle things but you sometimes need to dial up the spine-tingle patch rather than just randomly noodle, I feel.. I expect the official demos were better?

The ultimate classic has to be the rapping E-MU guy from last year though. Nothing can get worse than that, still was a good product though.

Aaaaaand I've actually tried Neuron VS, however I'm not allowed to comment on it, yet.. I will though, just gimme a month :)

Why would you not be allowed to comment on a product that anyone can already buy on the internet? AudioMIDI.com has them in stock for $899.00.

Get Kubik, Short Ciruit and a couple of BCR2000's then use the change to buy your favorite sci-fi series on DVD.

You'll be able to make better sounds, have better control, be entertained and have hours worth of techno-babble....With change. :shrug:

Pft. Check out the Roland V-Synth demo vids. between the d-beams and time trip pad, you can mess up any sound beyond belief in less than a second.

No modelmaker without the hardware :roll: , I find crippled plugin versions of hardware pretty inane. Especially in a case like this where they've just arbitrarily prevented you from using them together.
