pretty neat, thx!

I got a laugh out of this description:

"Undefeated bass monster but does little else. No decent MIDI retrofit. Popular with 1970s/80s prog rock groups."

Thank you MC!

It's so hard to remember everything about every model.

This will at least keep me from sounding too stupid :-)

the link to the Mike Rutherford Taurus 1's on one of the other pages, was interesting as well

BTW if anyone is into old Genesis, these guys are fantastic: and are not only endorsed by Peter Gabriel, but the band lets them use all their old stage props, projections, and they have gone to great lengths to use the actual vintage gear from the era: they are on tour right now

...including Moog Taurus bass pedals, bringing this back on-topic!

( plus a Mellotron, and some other cool stuff )

A list of modules for the Modular Model 10, 12, 15, 35, 55, IIIp in normal default configuration might be useful too.

Mmmh, I need some time besides turning the knobs ...
keep on turning these Moog knobs

Sequence:
Prodigy * Minimoog (1979) * Voyager * MF102 * MF103 * MF104z * MP201 * Taurus 3 * Minitaur * Sub Phatty * MF105 * Minimoog reissues with MUSEs * One

I saw this chart posted on the Keyboard Magazine forum a few weeks ago.

re: Multimoog - The chart says, "extra VCO doesn't add much above Micromoog, hard sync sweep is limited" As a person who traded up from a Micromoog to a Multimoog, I very much disagree with the first half of that statement.
Regarding the sync sweep, the statement is accurate, as the only apparent ways to perform sync sweep is a) manually turning the Osc A tuning knob, b) using keyboard pressure, or c) using the pitch ribbon to manipulate the synced oscillator, effectively precluding one from performing pitch bends. There is no apparent way to sweep the synced oscillator with the lfo or an envelope. HOWEVER, there actually IS a way to access those modulation routings, without physically modifying the instrument. You just need a voltage control source like a v.c. pedal. I posted this link here six years ago, but here it is again, in case it is of any use to someone: https://youtu.be/ItrpqT5NWLM

The sync stuff is a 5:36 in the video.
