Aleis Fusion Price Drop

Looks like the Fusion 6HD is down to $999, and the 8HD to $1499. Title link takes you to my favorite synth shop for mainstream gear, Novamusik.


  1. I just got mine this morning. I couldn't resist those four synthesis engines for a grand!

    Its too bad this board had such a rocky start - a [b]very[/b] buggy OS, mediocre samples/presets, etc.

    It was only released about 6 months ago...the newest OS fixes all the serious bugs and adds a new soundset. Hollow Sun just released their third batch of extremely tasty samples/patches for the Fusion a few days ago - they are [b]astounding[/b]...really nice PPG and electromechanical boards...I'm really loving this board more and more. The featureset is pretty deep but the navigation and editing system is intuitive and easy to get around on.

    Shame that it looks like it will tank...

  2. Congrats Carbon111! So, will we get a Synthwire review soon? ;) Can't wait to hear what you think about it. Yeah for some reason I thought it would tank due to the design. I don't think the timing was right for it. It's both a shame and fascinating how much impact the physical design of a synth can have on whether it's a success or not. If it were charcoal black or much darker slate I gaurantee it would have been more successful. It would've had that "bad ass" feel to it like NIN's shadow XT keyboard for example. But, who knows...
