I heard Make Noise will have a couple of new modules but I don't have any specifics to report.
HEY KIDS TIME FOR SOME WILD SPECULATION COURTESY OF YOUR WEIRDO FRIEND WITH A GOOD EYE...
Last week I went to visit Moog (super lame) and Make Noise (super rad, and that doesn't even account for the SUPER DUPER BUNDLE OF ADORABLENESS that is their doggy). While being shown around by VortexRanger (Hi!) I noticed in their testing case they have a Macro Machines Storage Strip. Now, I'm sure some of you remember the CTRL-SEL series of modules that were announced a while back. I sure as heck do, and I remember it for a few reasons. One, Tony Rolando has gone on record stating that he doesn't like to announce products before they're close to being finished. We got to peak in on the development of the Telharmonic, sure, but that was mostly on Tom Erbe's end, much less so on the Make Noise side. So, it's a little odd that an entire line of modules was presented to the world but have yet to be released. Some have argued that the premature CTRL-SEL announcement was inspired by the announcement at the same time of the Macro Machines Storage Strip, who's preset management system for eurorack synths the CTRL-SEL is compatible with. At this point, if you're still reading, imagine a bearded man with long hair wearing a tin foil hat on top of a toque because that is me right now. With all of these breadcrumbs of evidence in mind, it is my conspiracy theorist's opinion that Make Noise is going to drop the CTRL-SEL series (or whatever it has morphed into) at this NAMM or very near to it.
Also, my predictions regarding Moog are: they will announce nothing and ride the wave of the Mother 32 for the next 12-24 months while Mike Adams pays off his Jaguar and deepens his money pool. Meanwhile, we are all going to watch E-Mu, Tom Oberheim, probably Korg, and maybe Roland with Malekko's help, fly straight into our racks and solidifying Adams Music as being perpetually behind the times in a curious inversion of the Moog that invented the synthesizer industry.
