Well here is a big surprise from Germany, after waiting for the release of the Waldorf Pulse 2 after months and months (they now say its going to be spring 2013), Waldorf have anounced a lovely little synth called ROCKET to be released in March 2013 and it is only 205 Euros.

It has a square shape case and sounds very powerful. Well I suppose a rocket is meant to. It has an analog multimode VCF with lowpass, bandpass, and highpass, resonance up to self oscillation and beyond, a powerful monophonic oscillator section with Ultra High Density Sawtooth and unison for chord play – sounds great fun – I want one. On top of this it has an Arp and a destructive Booster circuit – wow.
