Apple : Rumor Watch: Apple Patents Synth in Europe? - macmusicOur colleagues at the excellent French site MacPlus have put their hands on a recently registered a patent for a "synthesizer face" registered by Apple in Europe. The Emagic look is obvious. Who knows if this patent will some day become a reality, but this highlights Apple's intentions to link with the music world, and not only the music playback / MP3 market.

English Ed: Always some interesting fodder in the patent registries. It's clearly an analog-inspired synth based on the front panel: look at the selectors for sin, square, triangle waveforms on the front! Other than that, a bit hard to tell exactly what it does, and this could be a component of something else. But nice to dream, whether or not this becomes a finished product. -PK
