I voted Polysynth because that is the.. holy grail to me... but

I would 100% defiantely buy a Moog drum machine and Vocoder.

I think a drum machine is a excellent excellent idea. Like Mike said, it could double as a sequencer as well. Perfect.

Give us another way to approach music. There's already enough polysynths, drum machines, and modular gear out there. Continue to challenge us with gear we've never even imagined.

Moog are a business at the end of the day

I like the idea of a drum machine in some ways
would be interested to see how it would develop
playing the sequencer market though, I think it would be up against a lot competition
Future Retro have already struck gold as far as I'm concerned with their Revolution synth and Orb sequencer

my money is on a polysynth

In light of the T3 becoming a reality, I would love to see its synth engine in a CP-251 format. I don't know if that would even be physically possible, considering the dimensions of the T3's enclosure. However, if it were possible, and Moog were to create it, I believe it could become one of their most best selling products!

It could be the cash cow that leads to the poly-synth! :D

What made Moog one of the great names in the music instrument business has been innovation. The new guitar, controller, and various moogerfoogers found a niche market. Moog's ability to creatively push the envelope is what sets them apart. Yes, they have relied on updating some of their older products (Voyager and Taurus) but those were Moog innovations to begin with. Innovation is what created Moog in the first place.

Just how many more drum machines can the market handle? If Moog does decide to make a drum machine, I hope it has a unique and innovative twist to it: more than just being analogue and having a ladder filter.

just filled in the enquette, not voted for the most popular item however:
sincerely hope that if or when ever there will come something like a new polyfonic moog , i really hope it will have EIGHT voices instead of 6, 5 or whatever. anybody playing with two hands will agree .( i'm more then willing to pay for the extra two )
oh , if just... an 8 voice voyager for less then 8 voyagers , and with the RL software (+ ! slewrate upgrade and other upgrades) and touchscreen , in a single box .... :shock:

There is a chorus pedal, get a CP-251 for the 104Z

a type of BB delay effect? I've got a 251 - how do you set the 104Z up to behave like a chorus?

I was hoping for a dedicated chorus pedal at some point.

I really think Moog could make money from making modulars, polysynth, drummachine and vocoder etc. I think with time....we'll get these.

Its very exciting + I love Moog gear....its high quality and they make no compromises.

Hi DS,

A Chorus can be created by gently modulating the delay time with a Triangle wave LFO.
Experiment with delay times between 22ms. and 30ms. The LFO Rate can be set to taste.

If your Mix is 100% Wet you'll get a Vibrato effect. If your Mix is 50% you'll have Chorus.

Hope this helps.

Yep, and to make it even smoother, send the triangle wave through the Lag Processor(and maybe attenuator) and adjust the Rise/Fall times to shape it into a sine 8)

Been reading lots of posts in this very long thread.

Affordable synth, polysynth, drum machine/sequencer.... hard to choose.

I say a rack mountable Taurus that could interface with a Voyager, Voyager OS, Little Phatties, Moog Guitar. Make that Taurus sound available at a lower price point - minus the behemoth shell and sturdy pedals... and give it broad connectivity. Think like Bob when he dreamed up the Phatty concept for production - lower price, great design, analog and digital control. Even someone with an M-Audio controller could use it.

To be honest though - let them make whatever they want so they can keep changing the way EVERYONE makes music. Moog Music is not just for keyboardists.... Hell, Bob and his cronies actually thought initially that a keyboard would LIMIT the possibilities of synthesis!!!!

But a drum machine with KNOBS :lol: would be really nice. Wonder what they'd have to do to make it accessible and innovative though. Cheers mates.

This is a good topic. Over the years I would have answered the question differently. Right now I'm saying they have all the products they need. So for me, I would say none of the above, unless they could come up with some upgrades for existing products that expand them a bit.

Polysynths are cheesy, and moog has not been cheesy since the Liberation and Opus-3. As powerful as the memorymoog is, the ability to play pads is not worth the trouble. How about this: A new Clavinet with strings instead of oscillators, but fully editable parameters! Its a dream shot, but they'll never bring back the funkiest instrument ever to exist. I fully beleve there are crazy civilizations out there in other galaxies, and of course they have instruments, but I guran-damn-tee if a Grey or a Nordic or a Reptilian heard a clav, they would shake theyre weirdly shaped bootys.

I think that's what you meant. But we're talking about a very very big circuit board if you want to be able to adjust it.

Nah. No chance.

Of course... releasing a moogerfooger that is a mere single oscillator for building up your own modular... that would be rather nice....
