Re: Moog Music UK 90s Minimoog?

Good Article. S-o-S is a great mag.

It would seem that if there were only a few 240s produced, the only attraction over a Model D would be the novelty of owning one.

Re: Moog Music UK 90s Minimoog?

There was a Welsh company manufacturing Model Ds with the Moog Music logo for a few years in the 90s I think. IIRC, they were cosmetically identical, with the exception of the color of a few rocker switches. This might have been in that black hole period when Bob didn't have the rights to his own na...

Re: Building a Home Studio

Lastly, any tips on where to find good studio furnature? It will be set up in a smaller room. I have a Middle Atlantic workstation table/sidecar for my Pro Tools/Final Cut setup. You can buy their furniture by the piece. The sidecar has rack rails for interfaces, rack synths, etc. It also has a min...

I just bought some NOS rockers (that are actually slider switches beneath the caps) for spares. Apparently, just about anything is available, except the Switchcraft LeverLites. :cry:

Re: Moog modular switches

I am told (maybe true) the first set went onto Mick Jagger's Moog as seen in "Performance," which would be Sept 1968. (This is also supposedly the synth that went later to Tangerine Dream and then to Hans Zimmer.) It does seem that by 1970 they were using the sliding ColorGlo switches; wh...

Re: Moog modular switches

Hi Brian: I'm in the process of acquiring the more hard-to-come-by parts before I begin my system restoration. So far my existing switches have been fine, but I'm stockpiling for the time when they really will be extinct. Most everything else is available, but these switches have been a challenge. T...

Moog modular switches

Hello all: I'm on the hunt for some NOS Switchcraft lighted lever switches, part #25201L. These are the clear, 2-position pre-colored slider switches that go into the earlier 993 and CP3 modules. I've checked with Switchcraft, Mouser, Digi-Key, et.al., and was able to find a couple of non-locking re...

Secrets of Synthesis!! YES! I also love Sonic Seasonings and Beauty In The Beast Sonic Seasonings . Waay ahead of its time. Ambient years before Eno. If New Age had only continued on this track...

Re: "Switched-On Bach"/Carlos Available for Download?

I never got to hear her "Well Tempered Synthesizer." You should. It's definitely a major step beyond S-OB. Tuning and intonation are much better, and she draws from a variety of composers-- Scarlatti and Handel are two. There's also some early vocoder-- a taste of what was to come. The di...

Re: "Switched-On Bach"/Carlos Available for Download?

I'm afraid it will probably be a used CD from Amazon:

I get the impression she's not interested in releasing her work on lo-res formats.

Re: Moog Model 15

I've seen several eBay/Craigslist listings over the last few years with 15s going between $10K-$35K. Don't think any of them sold for those prices however, if the auctions were even for real in the first place. IMO, I think if a 2600 goes for $10K plus, a great-condition 15 might be realistically pr...
