In Europe the first batch arrived and already sold out. People received theirs as early as the end of december. I received mine (from Thomann) on Januari the 3rd.

I'll be bummed to miss out on a low serial number first run as I jumped on it soon as the buy option came available. However I know of sevreal U.S. sound designers and producers that have already been testing pre-production first run units for a little over a week. Perhaps this is what Seven refers to? Maybe a bit of a wait will benefit with newer firmware.

Anyway, the iOS editor just popped up. Most intriguing is the Preset Blender button. It appears that 4 different patches can be loaded at once and morphed around with a big X-Y pad.

Oh wait...maybe only the four effects can be morphed with the X-Y?

So,e words in FB that those who are receiving the first units have some complaints on the action being clicky and noises. Rumor is that it will be fixed on future models and that a simple felt strip can fix the issue issue in the first units. Of course this is just FB rumors and innuendo.

If it sucks it will in the Classified ads above at a reduced rate.

Oh dang, so - what do you guys think? Surely you'll have to install latest OS to get the new patches and bug fixes... showing up tomorrow? The stock must be in dealers prior to them emailing you?

If mine sucks you can have it for 800.
If it sounds punchy (which is hard to tell as YouTube recordings are weak) I can make it scream.
The LPF & HPF sounded great, so we'll see if the DCOs got game.
Sounds like discrete audio though and if so I'll be keeping it.
Thought it was worth a shot for 1 large.

Perfect timing too as I take off after CES every year to go to NAMM and do modifications to the rig.
No need for NAMM this year, NAMM came to me.
3 weeks to get the D12 ready and prep the new racks.

OK, someone here must have received a DM-12 and is ready to give us a review.

What's the verdict? idk

WiFI connects easily for my iPad, preset manager is really useful as is selecting effects.
Being able to adjust the faders, knobs and wheels (which are more fun than touch crap) then using iPad to save from menu hopping.

Soundwise, it is very fat, big and plugging it into a Radial Space Heater is pretty sick.

For 999 and a 3 year warranty from Sweetwater who has stellar support should not be overlooked.
I didn't need this as Zebra2 HZ and Solaris are plenty these days.
But plan on using this as its smaller, easy to replace and Solaris can retire to bedroom/garage studio as it's been punished for 6 years now, time to treat her right.

Well this all sounds very promising. How does the action feel?

Aftertouch is natural to me by default.
On my Physis K4 I have to program it.
But as far as "action" goes I dont have problems on any keyboard.
Played the very best and worst, springs, Poly AT, etc.
I just adjust but this synth has no issues other than the programmers had too much fun with Reverbs and Delays making their presets ineffective at anything other than emulating massive Caverns and Grand Canyons.
The fan cannot be heard even though it concerns people.

FedEx stalled out 70 miles away Friday night and chose not to run my route on Sat with no scheduled delivery at this point. Got hella lots o work at the day job next week, a family funeral and gigs all next weekend. Will likely not even get out of the box for another week, now.
