NAMM 2016 Rumours & Facts

Oh! I love this time of the year! NAMM around the corner and lots of new products about to be presented, some stuff leaked, some stuff officially released before NAMM, speculation, etc, etc.

What a great time to be alive!

So, synth-heads, what may we expect from NAMM? Let’s check out some rumours & facts

Fact From Korg
Man, you’ve gotta love the guys from Korg! For the last five years or so, they’ve introduced lots of analogue affordable products and reissues. This year a week before NAMM, they’ve released this wonderful analogue poly called Minilogue (it’s quite hard not to miss read Korg Minimolgue as Kylie Minogue). The Minologue, it’s a four voice analogue synth with a street price of 500 dollars (US). Two VCOs, with pulse, triangle and saw waveforms, wave shaper for all waveforms, cross modulation, sync capabilities, ring mod, noise, resonant VCF which can be switched between 2 and 4 poles, keyboard tracking and velocity tracking, VCA with dedicated envelope generator, a second envelope generator which can be assigned to cutoff, pitch, LFO rate or intensity, an LFO which can modulate almost anything, analogue HPF, delay circuit (can be set pre or post HPF), 16 step sequencer, 200 presets memory and 8 different voice allocation. Probably this will be selling a lot!

Rumour from Akai
Akai has been experimenting with analogue products for the last couple of years, and there’s been some weird hate towards their analogue drum machines (rhythm wolf and tom cat) all over the internet which I don’t understand nor share it at all. Well, they posted a video on their Facebook page celebrating the 30th anniversary of their AX synth series saying it would be a nice product to bring back… lets just wait on it!

Roland Rumour
The guys from Attack Magazine think Roland will be presenting something that has to do about the Space Echo, claiming that the RE-201 UAD plugin quietly disappeared from UAD store, so, maybe we’ll see an AIRA range space echo?

Nord almost fact
The sweedish company has teased a video on their youtube channel showing some new product, so, we will probably see a new Nord Piano 3?

Oberheim Fact
Tom Oberheim is bringing new eurorack module, the SEM plus and a sequencer module, so, modular guys might be very happy about this news.

What other good stuff would we see at NAMM? Leave your comments!

Pre Namm 2015 rumours and facts

Well, this is one of the most exiting times of the years for all of us gear geeks! Namm is around the corner and rumours and new products are all over the internet! Let’s check out some of them…

One of the most exiting news for this year is the reissue of the ARP Odyssey by Korg. They put up the site arpsynth.com and there’s a live stream that will take place the 21st of January.

But in the last days of December, Behringer started some rumours of their own version of the Odyssey for about U$500 on their Facebook page.

Some days ago, a few images of a new Roland Synth were leaked on Facebook, and deleted a few days after, but, according to MusicRadar, the synth exists and it would be an analog/digital hybrid, and the guys at create digital music say that it might have some polyphonic capabilities, very much in the original Junos fashion.

Clavia has also posted a teaser for a new synth in their Youtube channel. We don’t have a clue of what this might be!

Akai has launched three new controllers with lots of control, specially for plugin instruments with seamless integration.

Dave smith has launched a new Eurorack modular, the DSM002 character module. According to Dave Smith himself, this is the character section from the Prophet 12 and the Pro 2, with all the digital effects like grith and air, hack, decimate and drive.

Legendary italian company Generalmusic (GEM, LEM, Elka) apparently has been bought by a finish company which will be manufacturing new products

Casio has announced the XW-PD1 and XW-DJ1. The first one is a groovebox and the latter a DJ controller.

Also, Arturia, has been talking about a new interface that promises to be revolutionary…
