looks like they're trying to be like the Virus TI and have it be an AU or VST....hopefully without all those bugs I heard about.

Arturia makes great stuff and is a great company. In terms of sound quality they are always spot on...

I'm thinking this might be a little less than everyone thinks. The Creamware stuff that's out there does essentially the same thing and it sells for around $700-$1000...

I'm guess it will come out at about $1200 and maybe dip down to $1000 within 2007.

Of course, the Orgin offers more then any of the Creamware devices but if you want to corner the market, offer more for the same price.

This does look like a wonderful piece of gear!

That's over $2500 USD!!!

Arturia can go fug themselves if they think people are going to pay that! It's a cool product and all but $2500??? You can buy a fucking Moog Voyager for roughly that!!!
