Why rush things just for NAMM? When Moog is ready I'm sure it will be worth the wait.

Why rush things ? Because other companies, like DSI and even newcomer Behringer now, are doing what Moog Music should have done a long time ago: they offer great sounding polyphonic analog synths, but none of them have that "Moog sound", that's why.

I have no desire whatsoever for a polyphonic Moog. If want polyphony (analogue or otherwise) I have more than enough options already. I'd rather Moog stuck to doing what they do better than anyone else - producing superb, well-crafted no compromise, monophonic analogue synthesisers.

Of course there was the Polymoog, but I hope they are not going to venture down that dead-end track again.

I should add that we've never had it so good from Moog. They are producing exactly the right products IMHO, from fully-featured modular systems, through exceptional soloing synths (Model D, Sub 37) to the excellent, Eurorack-compatible and very affordable, Mother 32 mini-modular system.

I want Moog to stay on this course rather then being distracted by producing a polysynth that will probably not meet the inevitably enormous expectations.

Don't tell me that a modern and updated 8 voice version of the MemoryMoog (without all the problems of the past, due to the limited technology back then) wouldn't sound appealing to many Moog customers ?

It may appeal to some, but not to me, or to others who look to Moog to be the absolute masters of one trade, rather than just another jack of all trades.

The Memorymoog was very experimental for its time and somewhat problematic in its architecture and design - a poly version would probably be even more problematic unless you were willing to sacrifice most of the 'analogueness' of the design.

Well, as Moog has already bitten the Eurorack bullet, I'd like to see them offer some Eurorack modules to fill up those empty rack spaces. Filters and oscillators obviously, but the complex envelopes from the Sub-37 would be a huge draw for me.

Why couldn't we touch the new Mini?. :?: :?: :?:

It works. It's wonderful. It's worth not paying some greedy dealer $5k+ for a Mini that might have problems down the line. It could have gotten best in show like the OB6 did last year.

Yep, Moog Music's booth was empty this year... And not many people were stopping by either...

And if not on the horizon, there is always something big coming some time with Moog :)
