Some exciting news, via sythtopia.com

Alessandro Petrolati and Densitygs (makers of iPulsaret and iDensity) will be releasing iVCS3, a virtual  recreation of the famed EMS VCS3 (Voltage Controlled Studio No.3) synthesizer.

Featuring iconic patching matrix and joystick controls, the analog VCS3 was infamously quirky, and is now extremely rare. I was lucky enough to play one of these at NYU’s Music Technology Department, and it is such a cool little synth. The monophonic 3 VCO/VCF/VCA synth was originally offered to the public in 1969 at a very reasonable price of just £330 + £150 for the keyboard (more historical info via factmag.com). Soon, iVCS3 can be yours, on your tablet, for just a fraction of that. Estimated arrival is March. Until then, feast your eyes and ears on this video teaser:
