So in the just out Synth Anatomy video on the Iridium, Rolf talks about the forth coming V 3.0 Quantum release, and also talks about other future developments. The Beta for that will be available in a few days though it is only partial. Part of the reason for this is to move patches back and forth.
But there are also some new secret features for the Quantum in V 3.0 only due later this year.
He makes quite clear this is a family and so one product will not be ignored to develop the other. So this will be good for both products.
ADDED: At 38:13 Rolf says something interesting about firmware development – “and the good thing is, whenever we do a thing like this, which is more of a basic functionality, we do it once, and all the instruments of the platform, currently Quantum and Iridium, will participate from that development.” To me that means there is more to come from this platform.
ADDED FURTHER: So two things going into the Beta V 3.0 are the some new digital filters from the Iridium, and the touch screen version of the Pads, with their four modes.
AND MORE ADDED: They are working on a 16 voice upgrade to the Quantum but because of the analog filters there are some technical challenges that may or may not make this impossible – so Rolf gives no promises for this development.
