Waldorf Kyra -- formerly Exodus Valkyrie


#21

With all the effects, osc’s, 32x oversampling and operating internally at 96k, it still promises 128 note polyphony.
And people wonder why the digitones 8 note polyphony is questioned :joy:


#22

Until its Not playable at Messe it sounds Like a hoax.


#23

Cause limiting your options promotes creative thinking, easy.

And of course the chances of people picking up digitakt/octa to resample it :wink:


#24

Will there be a desktop version though? I have no use for all those keys.


#25

Not universally true and you could always limit yourself…yourself if that’s what you need to be creative. When it comes to actual sound design though … I’m not sure many would agree.


#26

Oh man I love that line.
Just imagine how uncreative and disappointed Elektron users will be if they release a 16 note synth, or heaven forbid 32 note.
The mind boggles :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#27

Always loved this piece… :smile:


#28

I don’t think it’s a hoax. But this line is interesting „We’re interested in engaging a number of people/companies for the launch of Valkyrie.“ sounds like they have a prototype, but the need someone who Finance the marketing, production etc.


#29

The flyer says it’s a real product that exists now and is fully playable…
But then it goes on to say realistically on shelves 2016? :thinking: So who knows…

1280 oscillators?? :grin:


#30

Never too soon for speculations. I say it’s about 2’000€ for the rack unit.


#31

:scream_cat::thinking:


#32

looks promising sounds awful i will go with Waldorf Quantum


#33

Have you ever heard a synth demo that doesn’t :thinking:


#34

Yes Modor. :smile: but its a matter of what you like…


#35

Ok will have to listen to more Modor demos as the ones I heard sounded awful :joy:


#36

haha you get the joke. the one i like is the Video of the Analog 4 MKII this is serious and to be honest you´re right some demos may not sound good. the purpose is just to show the synth capabilities. nothing new here soudwise who nows time will tell


#37

Sadly, specs don’t translate to good sounds all the time.
This strikes me more like a vaporware, but I could be mistaken. Maybe all they need is a proper demo and sound designers.


#38

It’s just a promise though… And we have yet to see the price.


#39

Yes true, Elektron once promised Overbridge :lying_face:
Regarding price, we may be pleasantly surprised as it’s all digital

From their soundcloud:

“Valkyrie is a mainstream synth and will launch at a mainstream price.”

Not sure what that means.
