Re: Moog/Realistic MG-1 Mod Guide

It needs to be 47K to be the same as the model D. Sorry for the wrong link! It's updated. 1M is in there now, so I wouldn't imagine 470K to sound bad by any stretch.

Did it already ship? Mouser is usually good about replacing the part of you get in touch with them before it ships out.

Re: Moog/Realistic MG-1 Mod Guide

Well, a lot of these are internal modifications or the rear panel jacks for hooking it into modular gear. If you completed every mod in the list, you'd have added 4 pots and 3 switches. I don't think that's too crazy.

Re: Moog/Realistic MG-1 Mod Guide

Holy Guacamole! Welp, there goes my weekend! Thanks for this!!!!!! Let me know how it goes haha! I'm really anxious to hear from somebody about the sound after trying the first two mods. My MG-1 sounds amazing now, but I don't want to start any hype about it since I'm biased and it may be in my head.

Re: MG1 Filter Problem

There are 6 connectors on the bottom pcb. If you are talking about the four that are close together (next to the power section on the left), those are the power connectors. It wouldn't make any sense that your synth would work without those connectors. Maybe the caps held enough of a charge for a mo...

Re: MG1 Filter Problem

Do you have any pots handy you can use to swap out the slider? Even if it's just a standard pot to test it.

Re: MG1 Filter Problem

Does the problem happen on the main out and headphone out? Did you verify that all of your connectors are connected properly? The 3 pin connector on the right corner of the lower pcb can slip out pretty easily. Try reflowing the solder joints on the filter slide pot. Does the filter pot do anything ...

Re: Moog MG-1, Rogue, and Prodigy - Filter and cap mods

Haha, I want to make sure I'm as thorough as possible. The last thing I want is somebody screwing up their synth. A lot of them are very easy to do, but some are a bit advanced. I have a lot of tagboard layouts and schematics just scribbled on paper. The time consuming part is getting the schematics...

Re: Black Friday Orders?

So you bought some merch to make people think you're in a Moog dad-rock garage band? Then, you had issues from a small BLACK FRIDAY order when the company is swamped, but decided not to actually call in? Instead, you then come onto the Moog forum (filled with Moog fans) to bitch and moan? You want a...

Re: Moog MG-1, Rogue, and Prodigy - Filter and cap mods

Back to the topic of filter cap mods, even though the MG-1 uses opamps in the following stage of the filter, I've found that the following modifications makes an improvement, IMO: Swapping the filter caps for .068uF Change the resistors in the ladder filter (except R77) to 150 Changing the coupling ...

Re: Powering up bypass status

I have wondered this same thing myself. Fortunately, I have special lights on mine which allow me to see at a glance whether I need to engage something or not. Stephen . I have a pedalboard with a looper. So, I keep all of my pedals engaged at all times. When you're pressed for setup time at a show...

Re: Moog MG-1, Rogue, and Prodigy - Filter and cap mods

I'm getting pretty close to finishing up on testing all of the mods. Is there anything I'm missing on my list that anybody would suggest?

Re: Powering up bypass status

I asked customer support about this around a year ago and they said no. I wonder if there is a code change that could be performed in one of their midi updates? It's a little strange that they don't all have the same bypass state when powered on. It's just another thing you have to remember when you...
