I can't believe that the Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2 announcement was not mentioned by MPV or AskAudio during NAMM!
Hi Lurch, the Omnisphere 2 announcement happened when we didn't have our excellent camera man on hand... NAMM is HUGE, and it's just not possible to be everywhere at once. Rest assured we'll give this full proper coverage as soon as I've recovered and returned home from traveling... certainly we were upset not to have been there to speak to Eric first-hand about this :-)
Yes, as a long time exhibitor/visitor I understand how big NAMM is and that you can't see everything! My comment was a bit tongue in cheek as no DOUBT you will be covering Omnisphere 2 quite a bit in the coming weeks. Keep up the fantastic work!

I have really enjoyed your coverage of NAMM 2015. I'm looking forward to your post-NAMM reviews, too.

That said, I am most interested in you doing an in-depth review of Arturia's Audio Fuse, since I'm in the market for a new audio interface.
Great job! I wish it was a top 50! I wanted to go to NAMM, but im not media related...
