these 3 new synths are outstanding – having the very musical Easel aboard along with the DX7 is a great idea since Arturia always extends the original by features that make sense, so there are the first info posts on their site. The DX7 has a sort of macro quick-edit page – hence the look. custom envelopes, 2nd LFO will be included. Reminds a bit of FM8 – has more waveforms – a different algorithm concept – more like the original DX7 / DX7II.
the Easel is new to software emulations after the softube 259e oscillator this a a full instrument simulated here. they say “Arturia have incorporated Gravity, a physics-based synth engine into their software recreation, letting you take your music where no one has gone before.”. whatever that means. – the physics thing seems to be friction and stuff like on Lemur, so you can push a slider and it will slowly move and stop because of that “physics” engine which is something that works nice with this instrument – and would be great on a real one as well.
the Fairlight is basically a sampler and pre-DAW sequencer with 3D view – max 1.5secs per sample, aditing the 3D landscape may be the most interesting part here- historically also – that sample library. new to the Arturia-one is a brand new “Spectral” synth that can scan and mix sections of audio, letting you create your own wavetable synth sounds. of course the original never had such stuff. I believe they do not emulate page R – the sequencer – since it became obsolete with Cubase and stuff. btw- there IS a sequencer built into this, so not sure if it’s page r or something else.
