Where are the actual videos of it making sounds?

There are none, it's just a 3D render at this stage.

For example, a synth with 1VCO, 1VCF and 1VCA, if its 4 voice polyphonic, it means that all voices have 1VCO, 1VCF and 1VCA stages, if its 4 voice paraphonic, it means every voice has a VCO, but the VCF and VCA are shared between all of them (horrible explanation, but I'm sure it will help to understand)


No, that's good. So, it's just the envelopes and filter that are shared, but it's still got oscillators for each voice. So the Pulse 2 is an 8 voice, 3 oscillator synth that uses one Filter and Amp between them. So, if I played a note, and held it through the A and D of the ADSR, subsequent notes that I played while still holding the original note down would bypass that part of the filter, and just come in on the 'S' part? (if that makes sense)

I think it is one 3 OSC analog voice and 8 digital OSC.

Wow, I kinda ignored this when I was perusing the news from NAMM - got caught up in the Minibrute stuff. I'm actually a lot more excited about this now. If they manage to price this well like they did with Blofeld, I reckon this will be a real killer.

Its more like a mockup, since people were photographed with it at NAMM. It just wasn't plugged into anything

A price quote online said 599 USD. Not sure if that was expected retail or suggested pricing though. If it's the latter and there's good deals to be had on it, I might go for it even though I have a Minibrute preordered.
