Their description of it doesn't mention analog at all.
If it isn't analog... what does it do that pretty much any digital/software polysynth couldn't do?
String synths just produce saw waves, and they usually do it paraphonically. So, what you're looking at is an extremely limited synthesizer without any synthesis functions that can only really do one thing (and without individual voice articulation)... something that any polysynth can already do. Most string synths depend entirely on how good the effect covers up how boring they are... so this had better have an awesome set of effects. But even so... aren't there some pretty amazing software effects out there right now?

$400

Cheaper than an Elkorus, but I'll wait to hear it before deciding if the savings is worth it.

I think that while what you say is true, that is only true in a very general way.
I mean mac and cheese and fettuccine alfredo are the same thing in a very general way right?
If you look at a stringer as a synth, yeah it is pretty gosh darn boring.
But is not just about sound design. String machines may have been created as a cheap way for covers bands to pull off the sound of larger producitons. But they became an esthetic in their own right.
Though Kraftwerk, Jarre, Vangelis. Joy Division etc were probably just pulling out the string machines in their day because polyphony was expensive and doing chords with monosynths is time consuming.

But I think the point that is being made is that the product seems like a waste of money if it is a digital string machine? I mean I'm sure their is plenty of software/romplers with vintage string machine patches. And they are probably better value?

That said, it could be a bloody brilliant sounding digital string machine. Then it would make sense to buy it? :lol:

It is a waste of money if it is a digital string machine because there are billions of polyphonic digital synths that can produce a saw wave and have interesting effects. If you're cool with digital/software, why would you own digital synth software, and THEN feel compelled to buy this product? It doesn't make any sense.

If this product happens to have the greatest effects ever known to digital hardware, then so be it... but we don't know yet. And yet, everyone's like "I MUST HAVE THIS." It doesn't make any sense.

Oh I get it, you guys are acting like Waldorf doesnt have any reputation of virtual analog ass kickery.

I don't even know what would constitute "virtual analog ass kickery." Wouldn't that mean it sounded analog?
What are you going to do with an extremely limited paraphonic saw wave generator that almost sounds like analog?

Not give a shit and use it as a stringer? :dontknow:

You don't have a synth that could do this same thing?

I really don't know what the purpose of a "stringer" is in today's market. I mean, it's just a sawtooth generator with a chorus/flanger effect. Any synth can do that.

It doesn't even have a filter.

Just like I don't understand why there must be 10000 different guitars out there, all with the same strings, pickups, shape, controls etc.. The answer? "It sells"!
