Looked really cool. Tony had one. I think he said it was pretty cool.
I had one around the same time period. It was a very cool piece. I ended up trading it for a Voyager which was far more useful to me at the time.
Sounded great and had a great keyboard. I recall it really had it's own flavor and not the utopia mixture of famous legacy synths. The flip up panel was beautiful to look at but failed miserably in reality. It has to be the top board in a stack and when it was the top board in a stack, you couldn't comfortably reach the controls.
I guess the module version solved all of that?
As I understand it, the Arturia folks are not the biggest fans of the Origin. I guess it was kind of a challenging product for them.
We also know what they didnt like?
in this age where modular is hot, this instrument looks better then ever.
They promised some stuff that never happened. Still, it's a cool piece.
Actually they prommised adding what we now know as the v-colection in modules..
This alone would set the Origin in a class of its own..
In the end it seems the developers at Arturia where allready on other projects the day this released.. and with success, as thesedays Arturia is both successfull in hardware and software..
