Re: Minimoog Squirrelly Keys!

When I got my vintage 1975 Minimoog D it was suffering from a bad case of the drifting pitch, and squirrelly keys. I tried to clean all the coil springs and buss bars, but they were oxidized beyond repair after the synth was improperly stored in a damp place for 20 years by the previous owner. So I ...

Re: Share your synthesizer music!

Here's a partial cover of Blondie's Heart Of Glass, done with 2 vintage drum machines (Univox SR-95 and Roland TR-77), the Moog Minimoog, Behringer DM12 and VC340 Vocoder. All synchronized by hand and ear (no MIDI in 1970's). The Minimoog bass line was done using oscillator 3 as LFO filter modulatio...

Re: POLYMOOG NOT WORKING ANY MORE HELP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry to read that Megavoice. That's exactly why I always follow the saying: "if it's not broken, don't fix it." Unplugging, cleaning edge contacts and replugging voice cards, or any cards for that matter, you run the risk of messing something up (especially inside a polymoog) by moving wi...

Re: Share your synthesizer music!

An international collaboration between Paul G (in England) and me (TheAlien666 in Canada). He did the music, I did the Vocoder. It's a cover of Man On The Corner from Genesis done on synths. The vocoder is the VP-330, uh sorry I mean the VC-340. Enjoy ! m There's also this song cover, Keep It Dark f...

Re: Share your synthesizer music!

My humble cover of this Genesis song from the album Abacab. Tony Banks used a Prophet 5, but I used a Minimoog D, a Prophet REV2, a VC-340 and a DeepMind 12, along with a Univox SR-95.

Enjoy.

Re: No Reply From Moog Support?

A pitch bend wheel that can precisely give you a given pitch when fully up, or down, is something that hasn't always existed. Back in the days of fully analog machines, like my vintage Minimoog D, the pitch range of that wheel is not adjustable and varies a little, from one Minimoog to the next. And...

I think that the moderators of this forum locked that thread because it was getting filled more and more with personal insults and was going off the tracks.

Re: Voyager XL!

Nice, but simply an overpriced Voyager with a CP251, and VX351 and a ribbon controller. Nothing really new. Bob Moog himself would not have been too impressed by this, I think. Mike Adams (the big boss at Moog Music) has little clue as to what musicians want, or need. We want a POLYPHONIC Moog!!! No...

Everything is normal...

All Moog Voyagers that I've seen, or heard were the same as yours. Even the Old School model. That's the way Bob designed the third oscillator I guess. Don't know exactly why, but it is a fact. Maybe it could be because oscillator 3 can also serve as an lfo ?

Interesting that you mention the P'08, because I purchased one largely because it's one of the few "affordable" (I use the term reluctantly) new polyphonic synths. I don't hear aliasing, but I can make it distort and get some interesting overtones. The latter I don't mind nearly as much. ...
