Re: Do fake Chinese-made Moogs exist?

Basically unlikely. If you are going to copy something you don't choose something complex to copy without a huge profit margin. The only thing really complicated that gets copied is something of national interest as in the case of complicated copies like a Boeing jet airline or the (in hindsight iro...

Re: Is an analog sequencer better than MIDI?

It's all about the how you and your gear interface with it and what you can do. Some of it is certainly the challenge of getting it to do something you can't with your fingers. Definitely some people go for the hands on with no computer approach. Then again one can get an interface connected to a co...

Re: What inspired your interest in Moog?

I saw an ad from Radio Shack selling the Concertmate new for $250, half original price. I knew the Moog name from Carlos and Tomita, knew it was obviously a little one but I was surprised I could afford one and get it locally, well I did strike out at the nearest Radio Shack but they found another s...

Re: Where to go to find the value of an instrument?

It's been an ongoing thread for years on the Analogue Heaven mailing list for years. In the late 90s at least a couple sites tried to track sales but they all gave up. Some common gear get bought and sold all the time. That's not really the issue. It's the more rare sort of thing that gets near impo...

Re: A Real Good Reason For A Polymoog

Well they did get the correct Polymoog Keyboard version (can't program it like the Polymoog Synthesizer but it does have the Vox Humana preset needed for "Cars" and only found on the Keyboard version). On the other hand I couldn't really hear anything different when Gary was playing the Po...

Re: Moog 55 DIY

It's clearly a lot of work. If it were as easy as say building a Music From Outer Space modular there would be Moog clones all over. I personally would not worry about getting exact dimensions so early on, it's sort of a cart before the horse kind of situation. I would concentrate on maybe breadboar...

Re: Moog modular users manual for sale ?(or or copy)

Was there ever a manual? I don't think so or else it would be a hot download. I know there were catalogs with short descriptions of the modules. There are most definitely service manuals. I'm sure there wasn't a user manual like say the Minimoog. The University of Iowa seems to have made up their ow...

Re: Analog Polysynth?

What I've been really wishing for is a Slim Phatty type rack expander or even poly expander with no interface and a subsequent cost savings. Obviously the idea is a unit with the front panel would be the interface, or conceivably those not wanting one saving up could use a computer editor via MIDI o...

Etherwave Pro at Musicmesse 2011

Saw this on another forum. Not sure if anything can be read into it, perhaps it's his personal Etherwave Pro, no real info is attached.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EcrOzNoQ ... r_embedded

What's interesting of course is that the guy seems to be demo-ing the long time unavailable Etherwave Pro.

Re: David Morley (R&S) Synths (Polyfusion modular)

I've used a very large Polyfusion system a bunch of times. Nice system with some interesting touches. The background is more or less true. Past the early 70s Moog developed their modular less and less. Two ex-Moog employees started by doing custom mods to Moog modulars and branched out in 1976 with ...

Re: moog lp's records

Interesting about the credit on the cover. I never noticed that though I've never compared different pressings over the years. I assume Carlos was mentioned on the back. What about the spine? The LP I have was a later one and has the Benjamin Folkman co-credit that's since been removed. I guess anot...

Re: moog lp's records

Actually "Switched on Bach" came out in 1968 (your site says 1969). Here is maybe the first or second Moog LP from Japan m The release date was 1972, the 2000 date mentioned was when the CD reissue came out. The Korean album you have, "Nonstop Moog Moog" is interesting since ther...
