Edirol reports the CG-8 video synth
will be available in July and will cost (you may want to sit down)
US$5295. So, yes, those of you who aren't living off an enormous trust
fund or VJing in your spare time while you pull in six figures at your
day job might want to go the software route. On the other hand, I
expect VJ hardware prices will come down over time, and great gear like
Edirol's V4 mixer are under a grand.
