Does anyone know what's up with the price on this thing? Every press release I read says that it is supposed to be€461/$610 but the online retailers that are carrying it have it priced at $799.99...Anyone know what the actual price is supposed to be?

Fwik, the Pulse 2 is cheaper in Europe being that it's made there.

The great thing about the Pulse 2, besides all it's great features, are it sounds more unique than many of the other modern analogs out there.

Thanks a lot, its a really great synth to program IMO. Always liked the sound of Waldorf synth (filters) The Pulse2 has a lot going on under the hood, plenty features to keep you happy and tweaking for a long time.

Check this out too:

It looks good. I would bring this out live if they've cleared up all the sync/software issues.

Really looking forward to this. I hope they have sorted the jittery encoders.

Yeah, so Waldorf, if you're reading this. Sort out all the issues that plague your, otherwise, amazing gear. Stop making new products and support what you have.

So now that this seems to be in the hands of a few people, how does the ominous paraphonic mode work?

Wow, it sounds really awesome. If I get the same impression when playing it myself, it'll be very hard not to buy this synth
