There was a lot of expectation about a new product from Ableton. It turned out to be Operator, a software FM synth costing $149. Their normally loyal customers are furious.
That big ugly synth from Korg has been announced. It's called Oasys, and it's basically a $7,000 PC-in-a-synth that runs Linux and has every other Korg product cobbled into it. More
More later. For proper, up-to-date coverage from the right time zone, try Harmony Central or Create Digital Music.
