I often say "I will totally buy this" but this time I mean it.
I will happily forgo any Crumar/Siel stringer for a modern more reliable box that weighs far less.
I have been needing a string machine since the Crumar I had on loan went back to it's owner in LA.

So yeah, I am def buyin one.

As soon as I pay off my new Mac Pro.

ps wow it looks like it does splits? Or maybe just layering.
The graphic for 'tremelo' is very cool in a Orange amps way.

This is something I could want. But first, what does it sound like? Demos please.

Great! I've been wondering why none of the synth companies haven't thought about releasing a stringer.

Whoever came up with *that* name should have his head examined -- or his balls cut off, more like it.

"Grease" as a synthesiser name...? Uh, well, this is what you get when my countrymates try to be funny.

Most of them are funny, but not in a ha-ha kind of way...

Like "Dancing Bear" for a drum machine is any better? Or Moog's "Phatty"s.

I guess Waldorf was tired of using Bond villains' names.

The only thing, that i don't like here, is monophonic e-piano - I was hoping to have Vermona Piano-Strings in a box :) But maybe it can produce cool vintage bass on it. Otherwise - I'm sold (if it sounds good, that's it, of course).

I really like what Waldorf is doing with these boxes, but I'm waiting for an upgraded Rocket or something similar, though. I see they have included an ensemble effect and also phaser and reverb. So, it's possible to do it and also add some memory locations. I think a Rocket with memory, ful ADSR, extra LFO , these fx AND master tune function (please!) could be done for not much more money. A keyboard version would be really cool.

I'm definitely gonna pick one of these up aswel as a rocket. The filter doesn't interest me though.

I'm intrigued by the ability to layer two sounds in the Strings section. Especially the choir with strings.
If it can produce something even remotely close to a VP330. I'd purchase it for this reason alone :-)

honestly at this point I dont even care.
If this was a product from Roland or Korg I would not be as enthusiastic.

Do you think they had been planning this for a while?

I noticed the pulse 2 had paraphonic mode....
