So who's this? Is this someone who works for Moog? I thought employees are usually exempt from competitions.

Nah - I am laying low during this SXSW season. I have been working nonstop for the last 6 months on an iOS app for work and with this awesome weather upon us - I am finally RELAXING!!! I will probably resume to continue to refurb my CS-60 though... :)

Congrats on the Moog!

Hi Sweep!

I feel crazy saying this, but I won the golden voyager! I use a lot of moog stuff, and if you search my posts, you can see some of the stuff I like to do.

I have no affiliation with Moog Music, though I am a huge fanboy: ) They were really, really AMAZING in how they went about this. They had "Switched on Austin" book me to do a day show during SXSW, and I was completely shocked when they presented me with the moog. I feel crazy lucky! Totally random, and undeserved, but I'm going to love this thing for ever! I frequently waste entire days off making synth patches and recording stuff, so I am really looking forward to spending some serious time with #31 (aka "goldie").

In addition to the unspeakable thrill of winning this (I"ve never won anything, besides the time when I won a free ticket to the "He-Man and She-RA" movie when I was a kid (turns out they didn't even play the movie in Ft. Smith AR ha ha)), it has been REALLY AWESOME meeting/hanging out with the guys from MOOG. They are really cool, down-to-earth guys, as you would expect.

I have not posted in the comments on facebook or anything, so this is my first post about this. I've been partying and going to shows/ synth meetups PERPETUALLY since winning #31, plus I feel just a bit awkward posting about this at all (don't have words to communicate how happy I am about it, plus I don't know what is appropriate to say to everyone else about it. ..). I always automatically assume that I will not win something like this, based on the odds. I'm not a lottery ticket buyer, and don't really go in for long-shot forutune, so this is really surreal to me. I guess that's why they were able to fooling me into being there on video without knowing that I was about to win this crazy thing! I feel a little incoherent right now, but maybe I'll post again, or edit this post at some point to describe how it all went down.

Hi. Thanks for your reply. The reason I asked if you work for Moog was because of the video. You were obviously there with Moog staff without knowing you'd won anything, which seemed strange and prompted my question.

I'm glad to know everything's fine and above board, and congratulations on your win.
