Looks like one heavy sob thats for sure.

Probably just a photoshop judging by the look of the badge, else you want to pay 4500 for it lol.

Like a Voyager ms-20 symbiote.


Would be nice.


Where did you find that image?

Have a look at www.mc202.com.

They claim it's NOT photoshopped. I don't know.

WOW!

Still pretty darn heavy. I think Id rather have this though than the one I have just because it has a nice 61 note board. I wasn't too off on the price though according to the website.

Heres a tidbit from the Moog Facebook page:

MOOGFEST 2010 ANNOUNCES DEVO AS RECIPIENT OF MOOG INNOVATION AWARD
Posted by the spacemen on 8 September 2010 | 0 Comments

Tags: Moogfest, Moog Music, Devo, Moog Innovation Award

AWARD TO BE PRESENTED AT MOOGFEST, OCTOBER 29-31 IN ASHEVILLE, NC

The Moog Innovation Award celebrates pioneering artists whose genre-defying work exemplifies the bold, innovative spirit of Bob Moog. Moog Music would like to congratulate DEVO on being the 2010 recipient of The Moog Innovation Award, to be presented to the band during MoogFest 2010 weekend, October 29-31 in Asheville, NC. As part of this award, Moog Music will present DEVO with a very special synthesizer, details of which will be revealed in the coming weeks. Past recipients of the previously titled Moog Award include Keith Emerson, Herb Deutsch, Gershon Kingsley, Jan Hammer and Bernie Worrell.

“MoogFest is about shunning limitations, opening your mind and rejoicing in what’s next. MoogFest is about celebrating the marriage of technology and art, fearlessly embracing the future while respecting the genre-definers of the past. That’s why we created the Moog Innovation Award, to celebrate artists that helped to catapult pop music into the future and commemorate those artists that boldly burst through established norms to pave the way forward. That’s the spirit of Bob Moog and that’s the essence of the Moog Innovation Award.

The first recipient of the Moog Innovation Award is DEVO and we feel that they are a perfect representation of innovative sound-sculpting and genre-defying electronic music. Like Bob Moog, DEVO enthusiastically charted their own course and thus dramatically affected pop culture because of it. Not to mention the fact that they used Moog instruments to create their inimitable sound. MoogFest and the Moog Innovation Award is the perfect way to pay homage to Bob Moog and his adopted hometown of Asheville, NC where he raised his kids, gave birth to some of his greatest inventions and where he re-established the company that bears his name and carries on his legacy, Moog Music.” – Emmy Parker, Moog Music

DEVO, along with many more internationally renowned performers known for pushing creativity towards new dimensions, will play MoogFest 2010, a three-day festival celebrating the innovative vision of Bob Moog. MoogFest 2010 tickets are on sale now.

What id really love to know is if those other pots are connected to Midi. I don't see a lag processor on there though.

One of these days they might as well jsut put the Fooger collection in there as well. I like the design. Id have to get used to the off center douchpad LED though.

I still bet that thing is hard to lug around.

Kudos to whomever gets one of those puppies. MAN! The more I think about it the more my mouth waters.

Id love to trade mine in for that one just because its all self contained. JEEZ the more I think about it.....

THATS A DUALING RIBBON CONTROLLER WITH OUTPUTS TOO...

Very very beatuiful.

Looks like the Lag Processor is between the Mixer and LFO 2. I'm excited if this is real. However, I think this MS20 style panel should have been added to the Voyager Old School. Sad that the OS is discontinued.

I started to mentio the Old School, but I figured...hell they haven't even announced this yet and here we are trying to tell them how to make it better llolll.



This should be evidence though:


Look, a new Select Voyager with VX351 costs 2999 from novamusik. A cp351 should be under or around 300. Im trying to figure out how how this would be worth an extra 1700 unless Fatar really taxed the hell out of them for the expanded keybed, and if the chassis/rbbon controller makes up for the price.

What Im getting at is that if this synth is 5000 or around there...4500 probably the non listed price or whatever.....then a polysynth is going to be quite a lot.


If those other controls are Midi though, making the CP251 MIDI then holy crap. Thats some HEFTY HEFTY modulation in one self-contained unit and within the software.


I seriously think this thing is also going to be really bulky and probably weigh a good 10-15 lbs more. Id love to see the inside too.



And if it was old school man that would be even more awesome. In the absence of the touchpad and LCD, you could fit a moogerfooger in there.



I still think it looks like a beauty and this is definately one for the synth history books!



if its real lolol (its not april..well probably find out around Moogfest when Devo gets theirs) COngrats for their award(s)!

Combining stored presets with an onboard patchbay? Strange and very unusual!

I would rather see these addons as part of the internal analog board with patch memory.
But doing a new analog board versio and a new software would cost some R&D.
So taking this "cluster" from already existing things was easier.
I still do not believe this is real. Photoshop?
keep on turning these Moog knobs

Sequence:
Prodigy * minimoog '79 * Voyager * MF102 * MF103 * MF104z * MP201 * Taurus 3 * Minitaur * Sub Phatty * MF105 * Minimoog 2017+ MUSE * One 16

Posted this on the Voyager forum; may be old news to some of you but:

It's real. Check these hi-res pictures, spend some time looking at the 1/4" on the left, you'll see ribbon outs, and additional LFO with multiple waveforms, sync light, etc. etc. etc.

With closeups and details like this, it would be easier to make one from existing parts then to photoshop it to this level of detail.

Shame they didn't make a 6 voice Poly with this interface and 5 octave BUT wishing them lots of success.
