No news on HALia just yet. Once the SX-1 orders are underway I'd imagine we'll start hearing more about it.

SX-1 pre-orders going live in June. A mere £3500.
Roll on the HALia!

Like Teachings from the Electronic Brain on VHS this is sadly another FSOL branded thing I'll never afford to own.

Teachings on DVD in the future isn't an impossibility.

I could barely afford just the deposit on that thing ....

EDIT: *Checks bank account* Nope, can't even afford the deposit !

They're working on getting the HALia complete right now, and that is looking to be a very affordable little box apparently. I'm guessing it'll be out next year.

Yeah the SX-1 looks great but can not afford it. Eagerly awaiting the Halia though. Definitely going to pick that up as long as it's less than that deposit price for the SX-1!

Does sound lovely mind, proper full of Lifeforms-like bloopy environments. If I remember correctly their kit-list circa the Lifeforms era (listed in the Amorphous Androgynous - Tales of Ephidrina linear notes) they had a EMS VCS which this SX-1 definitely seems to pay homage to (or maybe the AKS)!

Brian's dad gave him his old Synthi AKS - I think it was the seventh one ever made - which is of course the main instrument on the Synthi A album and the EMS : Piano material. Brian's hugely into his EMS gear now which is how they made contact with Digitana (who have been making EMS-inspired gear for a while now), and also Robin Wood who runs EMS itself.

I think I will be waiting for the HALia. Any rough ideas of price for that?

Nothing confirmed yet, although it should, as Pete hoped, be cheaper than the deposit for the SX-1.

Ok, that should make it just about affordable then :)
