He told me that there was a Sequential OB6 next to the One and that he could easily switch from one to the other in his headphones. And the OB6 sounded marginally "better" than the One on similarly programmed patches. By better, he meant fuller, brighter, richer. Perhaps the One can be made to achieve the same auditory gratification levels, by tweaking and working at it, but on the OB6 it's already there from the start.
I’ve started a new thread since none of it belongs on the Feature Request thread.
(Just feature requests there, please. It will make it easier for the engineers to see them.)
As I’ve said on other forums, there will literally be billions of people who will never buy a Moog One. And I’m pretty sure that you and your friend will be among those billions. And that truly is OK!
I know that, during all of the years you’ve been writing on this forum about the possibility/impossibility of Moog making a new poly, you probably had a different idea of what that poly would (or wouldn’t) be.
And I know that Moog One is not a bunch of Minimoogs stuck together with simple audio and modulation routings. And it doesn’t sound like an OB-6 as easily, and as quickly, as an OB-6 can sound like an OB-6, etc., etc. (Just keep substituting all brands and all models of famous synths in place of OB-6.)

You totally should get a Memorymoog. It is what will make you happy. (And, by a happy coincidence, there seems to be a lot more of them available recently;-) What I can promise is that I’m not going to create a video in an attempt to convince you *not* to buy a Memorymoog. Life is short, buy the Memorymoog!
