EMC About To Announce Schmidt 8-Voice Poly White Synthesizer?

Small boutique synth makers, Schmidt, are coming out with a new version of their 8-voice polyphonic Schmit synthesizer. It's all white and we're waiting to confirm further details.

The good people at MatrixSynth noted a white version of the polyphonic, 8-voice Schmidt synthesizer is coming very soon. Back in March 2016 we reported that EMC were running their final 25-synth run of the Schmidt.

We don't know for certain whether it'll be the same spec as the original, but the full details are rumored to be released later next week.

Schmidt synths are hand-made in small quantities, and sold directly through EMC and a handful of selected dealers. So, you'll need to visit the Schmidt site below to take this tot he next level!
