SUPER SYNTH-TASTIC!
WARNING! We are about to reveal to you some of the hottest new synth releases announced at last week's NAMM Show. This could get very exciting...
Dave Smith Instruments Prophet 12
DAVE SMITH INSTRUMENTS PROPHET 12
"I would have gone to NAMM to see this one synth alone!" says our Technical Director and self-confessed synth nut Chris Orchard. "Prophet 12 sets itself up to be Dave's 'best synth yet' with its 12 voices, each with 4 oscillators and a SUB-oscillator, resonant analogue filters and a new 'Character' section! You can see the synth in action in this awesome video or email us to register interest or pre-order. I've ordered mine already!"

MOOG SUB PHATTY
"The sleek new Sub Phatty is all about subtractive synthesis," explains our News Editor Joe Stachowiak, "and it's an amazingly powerful synth with two oscillators and a sub oscillator, a Hard Sync feature, Noise control and new Multi Drive function. We heard it in action at NAMM and it's perfect for that distorted synth sound that I love. It's less than £800 so order yours now!"

Korg MS20 Mini - CLICK to order
KORG MS20 MINI
"The original MS20 is one of those analogue synths that we all drool over," says our Hi-Tech man Alex Warren, "so the Korg MS20 Mini launch was the best news of the whole NAMM Show for me. Now reincarnated in a body 86% the size of the original, the MS20 Mini features the exact same circuitry and sound and still packs a monophonic punch. Click to order yours now!
NEW SYNTHS - BEST OF THE REST

KORG KINGKORG
As if bringing back one of its classic monosynth behemoths from the grave wasn't enough, Korg also launched the KingKorg, a 61-key analogue-modelling synth geared towards live performance, with a heap of virtual oscillators and a valve driver for extra warmth. It'll be available next month, so click for more information and to pre-order yours.

ROLAND VR-09
After last year's Jupiter offerings, Roland still managed to hit the right note, keyboard-wise, with the Roland VR-09, a portable performance keyboard with 61 keys, a bevy of SuperNatural sounds (organ, piano and synth), effects and a Virtual Tone Wheel Organ with 9 harmonics bars. We're looking at a price of £799 - click for more info.

ARTURIA MINILAB
On the slightly smaller side, we were impressed by the Arturia MiniLab, a USB keyboard controller that belies its inner demons... namely 5,000 sounds pulled together from Arturia's Factory Experience collection of virtual synths, including the Moog MiniMoog, SCI Prophet V and VS, Roland Jupiter 8 and ARP 2600. At only £89, it's a super synth bargain!
