Yah. I sure wish I could justify it.

anyone got book recommendations? looking for anything that dives into the basics of synthesis, “how it works/how it’s made” sort of things, history, anything of that sort.

Yeh, if it as good as an original P5 it'll be epic with the extra polyphony...having only 5 notes that always the downside of the original for me.

Just bought this, it's more 'coffee table' than 'useful' though but it's also looking a nice Christmas present candidate too but will need to see when it arrives.

Yeh..I haven’t bought new synth for years. They are making more so should be easy to get one. I didn’t want to take the risk though, not after the Korg 2600 debacle.

Sorry if you’ve already told this story and I missed it, but whatever happened with that, did you not get one?
The cool thing about fretless is you can hit a note...and then renegotiate.

wasn’t it kind of assumed they would make lots of the reissues, and then they just made a few hundred and stopped? or something...

the Behringer 2600 is a bit of a dream synth but realistically i don't know how much use i'd get out of it

I got an order in early, but then covid hit and production slowed, with delay after delay...but all the way they promised I was safe as I ordered early enough. I spoke a few times to Korg UK who assured I was on the list as everyone around were having their orders cancelled. My delivery date was put back 5 times..then about 2 days before it was finally about to come they cancelled!

The last person I spoke to said even though production has stopped that they hadn't actually discontinued it, so there is a small chance they might make more....the demand was absolutely insane for them though!
