    ..should dive into features. It's also very personal. But if they want 4k$ for this (correct me if I'm wrong), I take e.g. Nord Stage 3, 88 weighted hammer action keys anytime.. :unsure:

    A little bit like Kontakt in a hardware box?
    150GB of factory samples plus 50GB for user sample import sounds exciting.
    Hope the box won't take longer than my laptop to boot up, and hope they do sample import better than Nord did all the years.
    What I'd really miss are good analog band pass and high pass filters. Seems like it only has LPF, and only 24dB/oct, like so many other synths. A real bummer considering the 2-timbral architecture.

    I believe this Prophet X is much more than a sampler, I wouldn't compare it to Kontakt or any other soft sampler for that matter.

    Me too. The only thing that I find not really exciting is the price tag which was unfortunately expected since it's a DSI synth.

    In general 8Dio has a very bad taste so I wouldn´t invest as much as a penny to this - period!

    Yeah, they're very much a bunch of Troels whose output you are pretty much guaranteed to regret even bothering to pirate. I guess they found a way around that!

    "User-sample import is planned for December, 2018." At least. I was about to start flinging literal shit around in disbelief.

    Also, I agree with this guy: "If this was a Spectrasonics collaboration, I'd have ordered 5 already." Well not 5, but it would have gone a long way in considering one.

    It looks beautiful though. I wish DS luck.

    I was also surprised to read 8DIO on the panel :unsure:
    But I won't judge before I've actually played it.
