I'm thinking of the Performer Edition. I'd want something with patch memory and MIDI, so the OS isn't in the running, and while I appreciate the aesthetics of the Select series, that part of it really isn't that important to me... And the extra $300 could go to something else... ... Oh, and there mi...

A Voyager thread in the Little Phatty forum? What's up?

I've had my Little Phatty for a month now, and I am really impressed. I play it all the time and look for excuses to put it in a mix. When I bought it, I had never even considered the idea of a Voyager because it was just WAY out of my price range. But I've recently come into some money and the Voya...

I was disappointed with my LP for about ten minutes after I first switched it on. Once I started getting into it, I realized how deep it actually is. The arpeggiator is okay -- and it's nice to have -- but I've used better [not a complaint so much as a recognition that there are limitations to what ...

The question, of course, is what Moog would have to put on hold in order to develop a Liberation II... And I'm one of those who thinks keytars are just a little... well... sad.

Oh, of course! But a boy can dream.

The thing is, a MF sequencer released alongside the mythic Moog poly, and available as a bundle, would be a killer. Just sayin'.

I agree about having a more granular arpeggiator. But what I'd REALLY like is a MoogerFooger 16-step hardware sequencer for $250. I'd much prefer that to a software sequencer that you have to program in a two-line alpha numeric display.

Yeah... the hands-on experience sells Moogs, doesn't it? I've been a polysynth guy for as long as I've been playing synths. My thinking for a long time was "why pay for monophony?" I walked into GC in NYC well over a year ago, when they had a Voyager and an LP on display and just started noodling. A...

So many of these suggestions can be implemented in software that there's no real need for a new LP model. I suspect that you'd see that for a hardware change. What that might be is anyone's guess. It's hard to think of what they could add to the LP that wouldn't completely alter its Little Phattynes...

And plus, Im in Arkansas and im virtually the only one that Ive met that knows anything about Moog, aside from the aging keyboard players and people who remember when the originals came out. THe Little Phatty may be one of the best things Moog has done in order to appeal to a wider audience. A budd...

But the MicroKorg is plyphonic and has a vocoder! ;)

... In fact, Moog is probably clearing capacity for the Taurus.

All things considered, there's probably nothing stopping Moog from bringing the OS back for a limited run sometime in the future...

Hey, I love my Phatty! And my Moog synth, too! Seriously, I think Moog's High/Low strategy is well thought out. Voyagers sell Phatties, but Phatties don't cut into the Voyager market. It'd be nice if they could do that with the guitar or -- I tremble to even contemplate the possibility -- a polysynt...
