Superbooth 19


#614

Gee, for that price, it’s only for the hardcore.


#615

It’s just been confirmed in a promotional email from Elektron.


#616

I said “see if there’s more interesting Superbooth news/discussion than the CS-80 clone or the Digitone Keys”

That means I’m looking for news on anything other than the Digitone Keys - which has two threads of its own already


#617

Lol my bad that part of the information failed to register.

VST Plugins in Hardware (without a computer)

This has been promised for a while with the ELK MusicOS – and they’re showing a few prototypes now at Superbooth.

For instance:
Retrologue
This is the Steinberg Retrologue Hardware

Mind Music Labs (the maker of ELK MusicOS) showed this at NAMM:
MML%20Rack%20Extension
Propellerhead Rack Extensions Hardware – I think this is now at Superbooth too.

There are other VSTs being put into hardware too. You can see more at MMLs page for SB19:

You can see the Steinberg MML Retrologue at the Yamaha booth H310
MIND Music Labs is at booth (O504)

What VST would you love to see in Hardware ?

Moog Filtatron (iOS app)

This one is still looking very interesting to me. And while it is a bit pricey, the Kickstarter price of $1249 is in line with the Lifeforms 201 System they did a few years back, and comparable to other whole systems in the eurorack world. I have been watching their teaser vids and digging the sounds. The aesthetics of this one is a bit more pleasing, and overall feels a bit more like a complete system compared to the Lifeforms system as well. Very cool.


#622

The $1249 price of the Voltage Lab for Kickstarter backers is reasonable, imo.

I have no experience w/ Pittsburgh Modular products myself. I know a local muso who seems satisfied w/ his Pitt. Modular gear. OTOH, the comments here about quality control issues are a bit worrisome.

It’ll be on my radar for some time, at any rate.


#623

Yeah the VRL has an awful lot in the one box. The other thing from PM to compare it to is the Microvolt 3900.

ADDED:

When i saw those i looked at the PM site, they have a one year warranty.


#624

Definitely. I have a Microvolt 3900, and it is an amazing synth. This VRL is taking it to the next level.


#625

I’m going to ask Pitt. Modular user buddy some things… The QC issues are only truly serious if the warranty isn’t being honored or something.


#626

I’m starting a new topic for this beaut.


#627

I think a new topic for the Novation Summit is a given too – but Novation is still crickets on it.


#628

in addition to their new X-Pan, looks like Make Noise has something else up their sleeves for this Superbooth:


#629

I’m getting that X-Pan thanks to this thread. Stop it!


#630

Damn! Count me out for the Keys. Summit it is!


#631

They said they have full stereo at their booth, so i guess another stereo module? Take my empty pockets and make noise :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#632

That new analog multifx looks DELICIOUS!

also excited to see those VSTi and RE plugouts. Who knows, maybe one day I’ll have my Kontakt player hardware box after all :diddly:

Kontakt is the only VSTi I’d love to have as a hardware instrument (with support for large SSD)

Crazy idea here – what about Overbridge ? As an Elektron mixer ? IDK – it is crazy!
