Am a bit late to this thread, honestly was hoping for an instrument with this form factor and versatility from Crumar.... They have all the pieces and then some...
Lightweight 88 key perfect for open mike nite...one instrument, 4 minute setup...bliss! Anxious to try Compact 2x..hope the organ engine works out.
OTOH Maybe korg/yamaha has something on the drawing board. Would sell like hotcakes cakes.

Sure Korg or Yamaha could do something like this, but it would cost a lot more.

What is the level of tweakability of this board? Or is it more of a "take it or leave it" type of format? Since we all have our own definitions of the best Hammond sound, programmability of both the basic organ sound and also Leslie parameters would be desired, and the same would also be said for the other sounds as well. One glaring omission I did spot, checking on what info was available on the SL webpage, was the lack of a wah effect, which we would want for clavs.

I found another video today. It goes a little bit more into the synth section. It seems that there are a variety of waves available.

At about 6:04 the keyboard went silent. I was wondering if that was on purpose, or if it was a glitch.

I don't expect a whole lot of on-board synth editing, but an ipad or computer based editor would be really cool

Ugh. That certainly didn't look intentional or like normal functionality to me.

Do we want to believe that a company would be stupid enough to consciously leave a major malfunction in a marketing video?

I guess in this day a and age, yep. smile

The video wasn't an official Studiologic video, so they didn't have control over the content. It looked like the presenter was trying to act like it was nothing, but he was raising one of the sliders and still not getting any sound. I'm glad Sweetwater has a free 2 year warranty on their merchandise.

He had said shipping in few months so might be a few bugs left to work out.

LOL! Now that was hysterical! I love how he kept hitting the key waiting for something to happen... and then runs his fingers up and down the keyboard...clackety-clack! Talking over it all the time. Good salesman! OY

There's another video, showing much more of the organ engine (skip to 6:10 to go directly to the playing part):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BXvfGnSNcY

And a more synth/performance oriented one:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0czE4ZEzKQ

Wonder if that keyclick and leslie parameters on the organ section are adjustable and if you can assign the leslie speed to the damper pedal...

I like the first video better. It showed that the organ can be split and used like a two manual Hammond. I wasn't impressed with some of the sounds on the second video. It looks like the two drawbars controlling LFO speed and depth only affect the LFO modulating the filter. Maybe it can do a good imitation of the Yamaha GX-1 on the beginning of ELP's Pirates.

Had to add my 2 cents.
Just watched that video and he was showing how the drawbars can control parameters of the synth. He then pushed a drawbar all the way up and lost his sound. I think he pushed "attack" full up and didn't hold the keys long enough for the sound to fade in.
Anyhow, still very interested in this keyboard. Hope they can get it in somebody's hands soon - so they can do an in-depth demo/review.
