Arturia is doing something we haven’t seen them try before – they promise a “series of special announcements” expected to be new products on Tuesday, October 11.

What could they be doing? What could it b– okay, fine, I know so I can’t speculate convincingly here.

“Rendez-vous’, a one-off livestream event showcasing a series of special announcements.”

Tuesday, October 18
6pm (dix-huit heures, 12 noon NYC, 9 am LA, 10pm Almaty, midnight Manila…)
YouTube live stream >
Facebook event >

Of course, you might also check out this humble corner of the Blogosphere / Web 1.5 or whatever this is around roughly the same time.

It’s a one-off, and I think they will just get through the announcements. (Compare that one time Roland did a 24-hour broadcast… not like that.)

Actually, here you go – let’s speculate:

IntonationStep Pro

Augmented Bagpipe

AirLab mobile IR controller, D-BEAM for a new generation…

Speak ‘N Spell added to V Collection



Okay, I would use each of those and… now will probably attempt to build them in Max for Live.

Updated – it should really be VocoderBrute and ThereminFreak:
