How many people think that they will actually get one if they pre pay? :)

Seriously great idea though. Maybe the best polysynth evah.

I dunno what it is, but I'd like to hear one. Also, only 25 (TWENTY-FIVE) units available at the $3k price point?

Listen to these pads (starting around 1:20) and that's what you need to know.

I think something interesting has happened. I can watch youtube links now, from work, as long as I don't try to go directly to the youtube site. Methinks since our old sys admin left in January, someone has been relaxing the firewall a bit...

I'll smoke twice to that.

:smoke: :smoke:

AND I'll smoke again to those pads. Flippin nice!

:smoke: to that!

What I think of when I think Elka Synthex, is Jarre:



That was HUGE for me in the 80s.

Jarre has 3 of them in working condition.

I don't know, I guess $3K isn't too much for an 8-voice poly. I mean, how much is that in 1982 dollars? Probably cheaper!

I kinda want.

Didn't they say it was partly being Mage out of NOS parts?

Is that why they can only make 25 units? No parts?

Just got word that indiegogo has refunded all contributions to the Elka Synthex project, stating that the goal was not reached and the project will not materialize. I bet a lot of people has sads now. :cry:

That is sad indeed.

That should be of note to the people who keep asking for these reissues. I wish they were more popular but I guess they're not.
