Is this the right time to buy a Deluge?
After watching a bunch of videos on the Deluge, I think it looks and sounds fantastic. I'm amazed at the capabilities of this device, and patch packs like "Boards of Deluge" have completely convinced me of the power of its synth engine. Also, it's incredible to see how much time and energy is invested into the Deluge by its developers.
However, I'm wondering: is this the right time to buy a Deluge?
In terms of cost, right now obviously is the right time, since the price will increase in a few months.
But since the Deluge came out almost 4 years ago, I'm wondering whether a new model is on its way. There are several (hardware) features I would love to see on a version 2:
1. Additional audio outputs, for FX send-return or cueing.
2. Improved display.
3. Improved internals (e.g. CPU, RAM). I've read somewhere on this forum that it's not that hard to reach the limits of the processing power.
In terms of #2, I'm curious to hear your opinions. I understand the grid can also function as a display, for example when editing a waveform, but isn't the current display very limiting?
I realize I'm asking this question in a biased place, but I hope you can give me some advice.
