New analog synths on Engadget

Mark wrote: "Hey man. Love your blog. Have you ever considered doing a feature on all the *new* analog synths out there? Comparisons and so on? Might be cool." So I did just that for my Engadget column this week. I only did keyboard synths, so left out the mighty MFB Synth II, which is tiny and knobby and has MIDI, program storage and a sequencer, costs €480/£329, sounded pretty good to me at MusikMesse: review and product page. There's the much simpler Technosaurus Microcon II for roughly the same price if you include the step sequencer. Any others Mark should know about?


Comments:
Another "modern" analog synth is the SemTEX XL. It's a really great machine available as desktop or rack-module.
 
Many here:

Feel free to add any that are missing. =]
 
Acidlab.de has a bassline and an analog synth named bombass.
 
what about http://www.elektron.se/
 
Buchla 200e http://www.buchla.com is pretty cool too
 
The technosaurus stuff was discontinued long ago... Elektron doesn't make analog.
 
I just emailed Technosaurus:

ME: Are you guys still in business?

THEM: Don't believe the rumours.
We are still here and if we can serve you with anything else, please let us know - thanks!
Best analog regards
