From the AS website: So, what product would you like us to design next?
I have about 3 products coming out in the next 6-12 months. But nothing new past that on the design board, since I have been so busy with the Leipzig keyboard synth.
I have a few ideas of the type of synth/analogue related-product I might do next (though it will never be anything radical, synth analogue stuff as been around for 30 or so years so it’s all been covered. All I can do really is re-invent the wheel, so to speak.) I specialise in monosynths, modulars, percussion and analogue sequencers. I will not get involved with DSP, digital circuits (beyond MIDI and logic), patch memories (complex and expensive to implement) or polysynths (expensive) – to give you an idea of our design ethos.
If you want to share your thoughts let me know. But please don’t be offended if I don’t reply since there’s lots to do here! But I will try and share my thoughts back where I can. I will of course ignore any offensive emails! (There’s always some opinionated bright spark out there).
Maybe I’ll list some of the funnier ideas on this site (and keep the best to myself!). Some things I consider when thinking about new products; do I have the technical skill to achieve the design, will it be too complex or expensive to produce, will anyone actually BUY it! Also I have to like the idea. I never design any product that I won’t enjoy myself.
