NAMM 2019 predictions / releases


Fingers crossed for the official release of Ob 2!

And some kind of secret to it that’s made it take so long… maybe sample drag and drop in Ob

One can dream


Access Virus ti 3

With hybrid analog digital and cv in outs

Dreaming again


Elektron performance mixer

Flying faders with p locks, trigs etc

Cv in out and overbridge

Dreaming deeper


I’d rather have sampling. :smiley:

That’s the only thing “missing” from my polar…


Yeh my polars a keeper


Probably not (selling or a second) just the one I have will stay for sure. Just big enough and if not on the road (work for now) I play it with a Keystep. It’s still new, let’s see after summer. :slight_smile:


Its so tiny…they should have added a GPS Tracking Module in Order to find it in ones bagpack/Homestudio…


Novation / new polyphonic device , maybe groove box based.
Maybe ultra circuit, poly circuit , peak mini , ultra peak.

I’ll update my prediction that if elektron are there they’ll demo overbridge on multiple devices and announce public beta

I also think the only gear I might get if I buy anything is still a few old remakes - ms101 or Pro 1 (mostly because of the u/he plugin which includes nice fx ) and the 808


Still hoping for a Nord 5
Think they are the last hope for a decent new synth


Hoping MOTU releases an AVBmixer-compatible, portable, sub $250 interface.

Like a MicroBook 3 but with USB-C, ESS Sabre 32 Ultra DAC. 4 in, 4 out. With the same ultra low latency of their newer interfaces.


Maybe Elektron will finally announce their new cryptocurrency, Trigcoin, at NAMM… Hope they show the new Undermine software that processes transactions, runs on Digitakt/Digitone…


That’s a good one :smiley: … mining proceeds in trig steps (use max BPM for best performance).


An effect box by Elektron in the DT/DN format would be extra neat :zap:

For their 20 years, they probably will resurrect the mono machine? Or releasing an analog key for digitone?

Anyway, it’ll be cool.


Im hoping for the Wood Block mk2. Its well overdue an update.


Cuckoo’s Jamuary plan has NDAs around
NAMM… new OP-Z stuff, or :3lektron: ?


His Deluge jam today was probably the best thing I have heard from Cuckoo ever!

Nice way to get some extra interest by putting those NDA’s in there.



Half MPC half APC. Looks to be standalone sampler and audio interface. Also looks like a Frankenstein nightmare!


It’s like everything that frustrates me about the Push 2 and then extrapolated from there. Hopefully they’re still working on the design

Edit(just to reemphasize my point): I cannot fathom a scenario where that will be convenient to use. God forbid if the screen is actually a touch screen- useless feature that is so uninviting to use. Unless my scaling is off and the more rectangular buttons eat up some of the length that the Push 2 demands. I like the idea, but goodness it’s unwelcoming as it stands

AKAI Force

Seconded. I’d love a Nord 5 combining the additional waveforms, waveshaping, and brilliantly chosen effects of the A1 with the superwaves of the Stage 3 and keeping the second LFO, additional modulation sources and destinations, and Impulse Morph of the Lead 4, finally adding the nice OLED on the Stage 3. I wouldn’t even mind if it was more like an A2 than a Lead 5, to be frank. There’s a lot of room to improve the already-excellent A1 and modernize the Lead 4 (which is just a slightly gussied up Lead 2 with a few poorly chosen effects onboard).


Wow, now we know why the mpc live remains unfinishef :roll_eyes:
