Read it on Gearslutz, don't know how reliable that is.

i don't know but this is my guess.

in Reason 6 you have that Neptune auto tune/voice synth thing. with the voice synth you can play chords on the keyboard and it turns a single voice into many. maybe Waldorf did something similar?

as for Arturia, i'm shocked but in a good way! i suppose they like analogue otherwise they wouldn't have emulated so many classic synths.

this is the most exciting NAMM event i can remember

right so paraphonic actually means you have 8/4 voices but they all go through the same filter.

this is great news !
and I'm very much interested in that arturia as well.
I can't remember the time I was actually blown away by NAMM news like this.
Usually I'm not interested in 90% of the new stuff that's being made today.

I'm still non-the-wiser. I don't get how they do the polyphony from 3 oscillators and what is 8/4? Them going through the same filter seems a bit obvious ( where else would they go? )
