Yep, a whopping $200.00 discount off retail price. I'd say other dealers will sell it for a little less once the initial orders are filled. One thing I will say is......PLEASE don't anyone tell me that Moog and DSI ain't listening to their customers....like Yamaha. We can now get a replacement for t...

I doubt that we will see a poly synth from Moog. "If" Moog tried, they would want to go with the same technology that they have been using, more discreet components that a Prophet 08. Basically, less or no IC's. There is a big difference in cost and the size a poly Moog would have to be. Moog is a s...

Topic: Taurus Pedals?
Replies: 21

Didn't Moog look into reissuing Taurus pedals a few years ago and determined it would be too expensive to do now? I know there are "some" musicians that can play bass pedals, but not a lot. I'm not talking about STING, I'm talking about the "mass" market. Typically, organ players that had lessons wh...

I don't know about Moog putting out a poly synth. Dave Smith builds a few prototypes and then has the production units made in an electronic mfg factory "somewhere" in the LA basin. In a conversation I had with him about the PEK a few years back, he said that he was "Having them assembled in a facto...

Quote by thewaag: "Except for the "sequencer" and arpeggiator, the LP will do everything that the Source will do and more (now that S&H has been added)." What can the LP do more? The Source has S&H and S&H Filter. That said, anyone new to the market is probably better off buying a current model synt...

Quote by doctorno: "I agree that you should start with a virtual analogue synthesizer, but I do not agree that an Alesis Ion would be the right choice. Of all the VAs I know (and I know most of them) the Ion is the least analogue sounding. No VA sounds exactly like an analogue synth, but some are cl...

This is always a good subject. Mini Moog is great, and many other vintage synths, but I don't gig with mine anymore, I just play them to amuse myself and compare some of my patches to similiar patches on new synths. I owned two Mini Moog's at one time, Moog Taurus One pedals, still have a Moog Sourc...

Prophets........

I still have my Prophet 5 Rev 3.2 that I bought brand new in 1981. I only recently had it worked on for a few things that needed to be repaired. I used it for 3 years when I was on the road FT as a solo musician. Played it for years on weekends as well as during the week in my music room. It was VER...

Talk to Kevin Lightner (Synth Fool) on this Forum. Expert tech, might be able to tell if its something you can do yourself or if you're taking a chance by trying to do it yourself.

My, that IS a good deal. You lucked out. I LOVE the Oberheim synth sound. I owned a few of the back in the eighties, they defined the word FAT.

Congrats on a real STEAL.

Agreed. When something is "too expensive" for you, the solution is not to buy it. Enough about the price already.

Martin: Fair enough. I'd say the middle ground is that there would be a centralized Moog Service Center somwhere in Europe where everyone could send their Voyager in for service, and get it returned in a reasonable amount of time. I would dislike sending any of my gear out too, so I can fully apprec...

ebg31: The VA market has taken over the role of the inexpensive analog synth. Analog gear costs even more to make than it did at the height of it's popularity, there's less companies making components for analog gear like in the old days. Most everything is digital. When you consider getting a vinta...

Martin my friend, I get your drift. Let me qualify my comments I made in the last several posts. Sure, it would be great if you could walk into your local dealer and have them give your Voyager a once over. There's a lot of reasons that isn't going to happen any time soon. I'm not looking down on mo...
