Just started digging into the review. Did you order one of these...? Got your hands on it yet...? Or maybe I got the wrong thread?

A little anticipation when it comes to the release of a new product is not a bad thing but in this case it seems to have been taken to new levels.

One could postulate that year+ lead-times 'twixt announcement and delivery could lead to cynicism on the part of consumers. I'd have difficulty arguing against it. However good the product is, don't announce it such that years go by before you can place it in the hands of those you initially courted.

The Osmose may well turn out to be brilliant. I liked the look of it but I didn't preorder one on the premise it seemed a bit premature.

The videos were nice but I'm not even going to consider it until I see one in my local tech box-shifter and have seen some hands-on reviews of it from sources I trust.

Seriously, ASM nailed this with their Hydrasynth. Hardly any teasers then dropped it, complete and awesome, on the world. Just saying ;)

Can’t really judge for obvious reasons, just listened to a demo, the sounds I found annoying, but, they were only presets, I guess you can edit it.
Too complex, always loads of "twinkly bits" reminding me of 80’s Wavestation type sounds.
£1,659 isn’t much of a shock, could have been more.
Not for me though, just not my cup of tea,

I couldn't give a stuff about the sounds it makes. I've also found many of the sounds in the demos unappealing, though they are just someone else's creations, and I'm sure my own would be vastly different. YouTube is full of appalling sounds made with synths I know can sound gorgeous.

For me it's a controller. It could come without the internal synth (I didn't even realise it had one when I first decided to purchase) and I'd still buy it.

Isn't this the thing that Mr Nagle has been twiddling with extensively on his Facebook page?

Yup. He's quite enamoured, it seems.

I still think you might find time for EagenMatrix, presets notwithstanding... ;)

(Sometimes regret selling the Continuumini.)

You may be right. I've taken a look and it seems horrendously complex, and actually 'un-musical' to construct sounds.

But yes, I'll give it a chance. It certainly isn't a reason for me purchasing the Osmose, and if they offered a cheaper version without it, I would have opted for that! :lol:
