Behringer Teases a New Blue PPG Wave

This one was spotted and sent in via Soviet Space Child.

"It’s alive! Some time ago we showed you the internal design of a new synth which one of our eight synthesizer engineering teams is working on.

Today we like to share with you the first working prototype which also marks our first wavetable synthesizer - modeled after the iconic PPG Wave.

We are still far away from a product release as the firmware is extremely complex but we can already tell you that it sounds truly amazing.

Would you be interested in this synth?"

Clones aside, with the following in mind: Behringer tried to sue Dave Smith Instruments and 20 forum users for libel.

It was dismissed as a SLAPP case.

"SLAPP is an acronym for a Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation. ... At its most basic definition, a SLAPP suit is a civil complaint or counterclaim filed against people or organizations who speak out on issues of public interest or concern."

In other words, suing people to shut them up, and in this case not just a business, but actual forum members / end users. It's generally considered a bully tactic. Does that have an impact on whether you support a company or not?
