Re: CP-251, 104M and?

I know people usually think the 101 filter is just boring or standard, but along with the delay, and the cp-251, you can do endless things. The murf and cluster and even ring mod are awesome, but it's the filter that is the essence of the Moog sound and the musicality. Playing with CV, especially th...

Sound Lab

I enjoy watching the Moog Sound Lab, but can we get a little more diversity of style? It seems like it's all the same type of pop music or whatever, and don't get me wrong, it's cool, but how about getting some more instrumental bands like when they had Medeski Martin and Wood, or some pure electron...

Re: I have the next big idea

The MP-201 and foogers already do this, very well. Yes, you only have 4 presets, but then if you want more, get volta or something. I don't see them making something like that just to please the small percentage that want to buy an all-in-one device. Decent idea, but I don't think it's marketable, a...

Re: I'm sure most of you saw this ?

I personally don't give a care (retro phrasing) what Moog releases. I used to get uncomfortable about their digital products, but come on, they are a company trying to make a profit. Whatever they can make that people want, even if it's a digital polysynth, who cares. It doesn't matter one bit. It d...

Re: Time for Moog to balls up.

Yeah, people would pay the price of a house or a car to get a polysynth back in the day. I can't imagine what a memorymoog might have cost in today's dollars (even with the extremely flawed design). I don't think Bob was against making anything, but his main "discipline" if you will, was analog mono...

Re: Time for Moog to balls up.

If analog synth's are the bread and butter, then why use digital oscillators on what would be a flagship synth? I would say analog mono synths are their bread and butter. Maybe I am biased against polys, but so was Bob, so you can't blame me there. But then again, the polymoog is one of my favorite ...

Re: Time for Moog to balls up.

Unfiltered, So you want Moog to be relegated to letting DSI and other companies fill the vacuum in Moog's product line(s) so they can play it safe building guitar pedals? I am not sure they are playing it safe, just trying to make a buck. Bob made the electronics for phone systems and hockey games,...

Re: I just have to say...

The voyager is a great instrument, kinds miss the one I sold. I would have kept it except for having a model D. IMO, the voyager is better than any DSI or any sequential circuits machine ever made. The possibilities when you introduce a moogerfooger or 2 and some of the abundant CV are endless. And ...

Re: Time for Moog to balls up.

So you think Moog is just inching towards full digital? They are just building analogs because they are in style? I would rather people buy a DSI than Moog make something as sterile sounding as the prophet 12. If Moog can make money selling guitar pedals and use it to create wonderful and unique pro...

Re: New Voyager - Question on Cables

Moog outs/ins are all unbalanced, so no advantage to using balanced cables at all for audio, and especially not for CV. Balanced cables are only advantageous for either mics, or line level for long distances (like more than 100 feet). As far as TRS goes, basically all you need that for is for a spli...

Re: Time for Moog to balls up.

They would never use even DCO's. What possible purpose would digital oscillators have? To reduce cost? But then why even buy a Moog or any hardware? Just to have a cool looking but ultimate sterile sounding synth? A large appeal of Moog gear is that they never get outdated. The Voyager is over a dec...

Re: Time for Moog to balls up.

The only polysynth Moog could benefit from would be something unique, unlike anything else on the market, and not just a multiple voice phatty or voyager. And as much as I am indifferent about a new Moog poly, I would be super excited if they built a modern version of the PolyMoog, the best and most...

Re: Time for Moog to balls up.

besides, chords are over rated anyway :roll: I completely agree. Chords/chord changes are completely overrated as a form, especially in electronic music. It depends on the music and the players, but monos tend not be overindulged like polys, the latter being overused a lot to the point of being che...

Re: Time for Moog to balls up.

There should be a separate section in this forum for these periodic threads. There must be a hundred of them calling for a poly or a modular. Obviously there are so many options for both already available, so the only real market is for the people who are just collectors or just perpetually waiting ...

Re: Moog Matador

I am binge watching "House of cards", and on episode 3, Kevin Spacey's character says "there are two kinds of [synths], door mats and matadors. Which do you think this intends to be?"
