Just posted a sample on his FB page via SoundCloud.  Everything is the synth except drums (which are Kong):

Thanks.

That's 12 (twelve) note poly (not two), and each note can have up to 9 oscillators per note.

D'oh!  Copy/paste error.  Fixed.  Hoping this one has a fancy interactive custom display.   ;)

Really looking forward to this! I find Ochen K's devices mostly super exciting!
(the micro tuning one was not for me, but other than that...) :)

I love his REs. Truly outside the box and always great value for the money. I am sure I will buy this one too.

I have everything of his (except for micro tune because I don't really need it...yet). Can I pre-order?  :s0225:
Enjoy!

I would like to test your synth too, if you need another Beta-tester.

I was like, "oh, that's cool, the display shows the state of the envelope. But what about polyphony?" Then a moment later, "Genius!" :)

I watched the whole video. I do have one question. You were using the computer keyboard to play notes so the velocity was always the same. Does note velocity map to anything? If not, there is the blank spot between the Sequencer and Reset buttons. ;)

That's pretty bad ass; thanks for sharing.  I'm glad he took a custom display widget and really made various controls accessible.  The "pop-ups" for yes/no and the data slider = brilliant, not to mention the envelope stuff.  Pretty bad ass.

I do wish he had made it a bit larger, and the single letter buttons will make knowing the controls challenging.  Still - nice!

Actually, the original design inspiration came from ETC lightboards. Here's the first pic I took of a board that I thought might make an interesting interface:

Yes, right now, velocity doesn't map to anything. I originally had it scale the volume of each voice, but I didn't like the results so I took it out. Maybe the user should be able to select what parameter it maps to/scales? That might be interesting.

I just watched the video on this thing and that super saw is made for hip hop and r@b. That saw is incredible and the whole synth itself is something to behold.

Yeah, if you just added a Velocity button, like the LFO and Sequencer, that pops up a little slider on top of what ever envelope is currently displayed. Then, the user could choose how much of the velocity level should be used in scaling that particular envelope.
