Predictions for new Moog Products this year

Post by Sir Nose » Thu Dec 27, 2012 8:50 pm

I read a rumor about an Old School knobbed out phatty.

Any predictions what the new year might hold in terms of the moog product line?

Maybe more midified foogers. 101M seems likely.

I heard a rumor from the Great Pumpkin about a 64 voice all analog polyphonic modular.

Seems redundant in my opinion, if you could afford a Phatty with knobs you could get something Voyager class with Knobs that already exists. That said, I've lusted about the opposite. A 1U rack Phatty with MIDI only, no knobs. Then control a bunch of them with a regular Phatty or even better a knobbed out one.

Been hoping for years for a proper racked version of Moogerfoogers - you know, not like 6+U of rack space to fit 3 with your spare wood endcheeks in a box and the jacks taking up rack space sticking up but like the the 500 series out now with the jacks on front. Where have I seen that before? I keep seeing pictures of these things with music legends playing them. Just need to add like an envelope & VCA to the Fooger line.

Sir Nose, in response to your question, I have a friend who runs a synthesizer store and he is in contact with moog aboutxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. I think an old school Phatty is a valid speculation, either that or a new line altogether. I'm looking forward to learning more.

This is good speculation, but I'm not sure that would necessarily "one-up" the MiniBrute, seeing as Minitaur still has osc range limitations that prevent it from playing any note above C5. I think in order to bypass this, Moog would have to make some serious changes to the circuitry, effectively making it a "not Minitaur". So I think it's a brand new synthesizer. But I don't know anything.

Brand new synth would be great. Especially at the $1000 mark. Hopefully, it has a little something different to offer either control or sonically.

I'd be happy with knob per function, 2 OSC, 2 Filters, and better modulation (2 LFOs and 3 ENV, or 2 ADSR and 2 one knob Murf style AD). A ribbon the length of the keyboard would be nice. Edit: All of that easily given up for a tab bit of INNOVATION.

New Prodigy or Mirco then. Basically a minitaur configuration with Phatty oscillators and a 2 octave kb.

That's my last guess.

Give or take a few [thousands].

I'm just hoping the layout is going to be nice.

A touchscreen and ribbon and joystick performance controller would be nice. Makes too much sense for them to actually make it.

A three voice Minitaur? That's my next guess...
