Well there is the following post from Jamie Munro over on GS in teh DS-80 thread when someone asked if it was real, noting that Jamie has been helping out with RD-8 firmware/beta testing and other things, so gets "information". although I must state that he is not employed by or has received any payment from Behringer/MT.

it's real

some of its tech is also acting as a donor for other projects, as said above this is a huge task, can't say more than that really

ftr the long advanced mentions are becoming a thing of the past, so the whole 2-3 year wait will no longer be a thing thankfully, big ships turn slowly but they still turn

I hope this makes you a bit happier Hugh!

The shared technology makes a lot of sense... I just hope the wait isn't too long, and it lives up to expectations.

The year is 2987. The ghosts of long-departed SOS members gather on page 3738295 of the All-New All-New Behringer Keyboards thread, eagerly awaiting news of the DS80 that is finally due to be announced today.

Current members of the forum look on the ghosts with some confusion, but tolerate the long-standing quirk of the synth section. Hardware interfaces were replaced by direct brainwave interfaces many centuries ago, and keyboards are a strange anachronism, barely remembered from a bygone age. The forum pities the ghosts and, retaining the good-natured ethos for which it was always known, the AI moderator (HughBot v3.7) has allowed the thread to continue running.

There is dismay as the device is finally shared in all its glory – the poly-AT works, but most are underwhelmed as the great announcement reveals that it is attached to a single, monophonic DS80 voice, in a unit with 17 mini keys (and of course, external PSU). It is rumoured that the ghosts agreed to haunt Behringer analogue synths in revenge, and not a single one of their devices ever stayed in tune again…

Come on now this is being recreated by Behringer, not Korg, Roland or Yamaha!

Well at least, as a ghost, you know that Roland aren't going to chase you... :D

You're NOT already automated Hugh?

I've always assumed that only a robot could type that fast yet not include any gibberish in their replies ;)

2987? there will always be an Arpangel equivalent on this forum, in the future you’ll see his ghost walking down the dusty corridors of SOS plucking his spring reverbs and stroking his wooden end cheeks.

Interesting news on the OB-Xa that they are beta'ing. It looks like they have lost their copyright / trademark application for the name 'Oberheim' for the simple reason that everyone knows it's Tom's name and that it wouldn't be right to try and trademark that. He is too associated with Oberheim music products it seems.

I didn't realise that Gibson 'did the right thing' and gave him his name back a while ago. I knew that Yamaha had done it with Sequential/Dave Smith. Always good to see the big boys playing nicely.

The article I saw also mentioned that Dave Smith / Sequential had an application for OB-X as well but no further info on whether this is a genuine name of an upcoming product or just a blocking move against Behringer. I do hope it's the former but can understand if it's the latter.

That's not how it works. You might be able to register it, but unless you're actually using it in trade then you'd be wide open to having it invalidated.
