  1. Oh please, just another VAsynth

  2. "via M-Audio where you'll find the form and a teaser video with The Chemical Brothers. "

    Not the Chemical Brothers but the Crystal Method.

  3. get ready for a new M-Audio crappy product.

  4. Maybe it'll be a sound card that doesn't glitch the audio signal.

  5. i think it's a soundcard with properly working drivers.

  6. i've never had an issue with any m-audio gear...maybe it's because the PC's i run this gear on are always clean OS installs that never hit the internet?

  7. i had troubles with one and my pc installs are clean and they don't go on the net either.the audio was going off for no reason i replaced it with warranty and it- was rthe same..i'll never buy one again :)

  8. ok those are the two biggest shills there are. however, please amaze me without being a pedal or effects box like all the roland count downs. seriously, we need something new.

  9. OMFGZ! It's a new VA pluginz!
    It's the coolest new thing.

    I love how the guys are like " it's uh, unique".

    c*ck tease indeed

  10. The tag line "Something wicked this way comes" is from Shakespeare's MacBeth. Perhaps it's a VA version of the M5 :-)


  11. I just posted the details over at Gearslutz. Basically: 49-key VA, audio interface with ProTools (et al), 12 oscillator layers/voices, 41 oscillator types, 53 drum sample types [don't know if this means kits or individual samples], software editor included, usb audio + midi.
