The new Moog looks great! Can't wait to see/hear more.
Moog seems to be breaking their old tradition of those small 2 1/2 octave keyboards they had on the Micromoog, Prodigy, Rogue, and even the MG-1. For me, a 2 octave keyboard is just too limited. Even with octave switching only the C has three keys alowing two octaves. The 2 1/2 octave is a nice compromise, as one can play in F, F#, G, G#, A, Bb, and C with two octaves plus. Those extra 7 keys make a huge difference IMHO.
Just last night I was recording a lead with a Moog RME controlled via MIDI from a Minibrute keyboard. Had to swap out the Minibrute with a DSI Mopho because the DSI had the Moog style 32 key F to C board. I really thought the only gripe I had with a Minibrute was the missing 7 keys. Guess It's just my playing style, but I really needed the extra keys to play my musical phrases.
RME with 2 1/2 octave Mopho keyboard, just enough keys!
