Similar for me, but it's Arturia as opposed to Behrinwhoever :tongue:

Same for me, but in my case amazingly, it's all about <click>BRRRRRRR

Until a month ago I didn’t own anything of theirs, I bought a cable tester for work.

I'm just discovering the Arturia V collection, and yes, I can see what you mean...

So was I!

Elf, the V Collection is still good, but it used to be frighteningly good when it first came out, I genuinely thought that I had the instruments it was replicating, with no need to have the real thing, they were that good, especially the Moog Modular, and 2600, they were almost too rich and fruity.
Then, they changed them, and now I hardly use those things, I still use it for some things, like the Rhodes, Wurly, and organs.

Anal Lab4 probably changed the sound. I have this.
Anal Lab2 is prolly the original sound which can't get these days.
Although I have an old download from when I purchased Anal Player nearly decade earlier that could still have the original sound.

Interestingly, when I migrated my studio recently to Apple silicon I decided everything had to run native. So reviewing all my soft synths (what I have installed against what do I actually use) I decided just to use v collection. And although I’ve had it for years, I’m really thinking it’s first rate and I’d rather use these in a project than invest in small analog retro synths.

The only Arturia thing I use now is the JP8, the Rhodes and Wurly are just about usable, but not my first choice, Mellotron isn’t bad.

Introducing Behringer PRO-800, the worlds first analog 8-Voice poly synth that is affordable for everyone.

Delivering 8 fully analog voices with 2 VCO’s per voice, the PRO-800 faithfully delivers the amazing sound and experience of this historic synthesizer from 1982, all while introducing brand new features in a form factor that works within modern-day setups.

You need presets? We Hear You. PRO-800 delivers user memories for up to 400 sounds.

PRO-800 is also fitted with the iconic GliGli modification as standard, in addition to many of the new features that we have implemented including, the noise generator which was only ever found on the rare Japanese editions, full MIDI cc control, USB MIDI connectivity, dual polyphonic sequencer, dedicated LFO with 6 waveshapes, and VCA overdrive.

PRO800. True 8-Voice Analog Polyphony, now affordable for everyone.

Estimated Price USD $599, Shipping April 2023.

Video makes it pretty clear they're aiming at the Minilogue XD module.

Something is only introduced if it's actually available, its a bit like introducing me at a party and then saying "but he won't be coming until April"
I'll keep my eyes open sometime in 2025.
All these announcements became tiresome a long time ago.

They announced it almost two years ago, this is the first time they've put a release date on it.
