The latest firmware update for this unique instrument brings a raft of tweaks and improvements as well as new features. Check out this video to see and hear what's changed.

Synthstrom's Deluge is a unique piece of gear: a portable synth, sampler and sequencer in a great-looking package. And to up the cool quota even more, they are only manufactured in limited runs. The company will be releasing more soon and you can sign up here to be notified in advance. 

But that's not all! They have also produced updated firmware that adds a bunch of new and tweaked features. Here's a video and a list of what's new.
