Based on comments from Guido quite a while ago, I'm guessing it's an updated dual manual Mojo. Probably DSP/Gemini based. Take that guess for what it's worth (spoiler alert - it's worth nothing).

It's a picture of a laptop, so I'd guess either the long-awaited update to the VST version of VB3, or some kind of enhanced computer editing capabilities for one or more of their hardware products. Unless the photo is a red herring. ;-)

His contempt for the Mac OS has not diminished, I suspect. Unlikely that there's anything for me on the horizon.

I'm sure he writes the code for the hardware products on a computer. It could be *anything.*

It will be exactly what they felt like building, nothing more nothing less. And kudos to them for being in business keeping true to that.

What would be killer is a single manual 73 key modified TP-8O with the dual DSP Gemini in it and whatever controllers needed for the all the engines on-board.

My guess is the Mac market is small for him and supporting both platforms takes time (and if he outsources it, money). He could at some point begin using some tools that allow him to write in C++ or whatever he's used to and compile for both Windows and OSX and iOS for that matter. But this is all a lot when you're trying to put out hardware.

Good point, and the screen is displaying a bunch of code.

A GSi version of the Nord 73 would be great, and nothing to fear from the comparison.

Not to mention they could easily undercut Stage 3 Compact by at least $1k US and easily match SK1 88s price - possibly undercut it buy a hundred or two.

Players are wrong, they don't even know what they want until someone makes it. And home/hobby players drive feature lists and design (sarcasm). I'd say this were true except GSi isn't really in the home hobby market and they don't really make anything that's not for gigging. I mean, for Pete's sake - they built both desktop and rack versions of the Gemini which is nuts in today's market. Unless their research with players suggested there were enough people that wanted their sounds but to use with their existing keyboards.

I don't know what percentage of keyboard buyers would be interested in a 73-key board with a Gemini foundation... but whatever it is, I would guess it's more than the number interested in the nichier Crumar Seven. But of course, it's in the details... not just sound but ergonomic design as well as price, weight.

Yeah. Perhaps it'll have mini-keys with knobs and sliders too close together. razz

This is where the GSI/Crumar delineation confuses me. As the announcement was on the GSI page, I assume it has nothing to do with the Mojo. I assume it's software related, based on the pic.

Which brings me back to the notion that they build what they would like to play.

No kidding, we'll find out when we do.

Though I *was* seriously considering a Mojo 61..eventually this year....we'll see if this changes that direction.

Just get one. It's awesome. GSI is either updating VB3 or coming out with something for the Gemini. Why would you want that? Just go for the 61 and enjoy.

Not for synth patches it's not. In fact it's severely lacking in this regard. wink
