Lil' Phatty Info Up...

by Chris Randall

Here's the deal on the new Moog. I've been sitting on a picture of this thing for like two weeks, and you have NO idea how hard it was to not post it. Moog has let the cat out of the bag, though, so go forth.

Personally, I think it looks pretty fucking sweet. If you want a high-res pic, click here.

UPDATE: Analog Haven, the best store in the world, says $1375 is the price to beat.

the laser engraving is fucking fabulous.

if i didn't already have a Minimoog i'd be on this quicker than a 3 dollar whore.

You mean you'd be on it quicker than a $3.00 whore would be on it? Or you'd fuck it before you'd fuck a $3.00 whore? I don't get it!

But that said, yeah. This thing is furniture. I was picturing having to move my studio back in our house. That'd be all right if this was the only synth I brought. It is a good lookin' beastie, no doubt about it.

wow. your questioning of my analogy just made my head hurt. i don't get it either!

i'm going to go get some stir-fry.

Looks good.

Wow if it had CV out for trigger, pitch, and velocity (aftertouch), and mod wheels (instead of just inputs).

That would be a GREAT mod for someone to do.

I've become a total spazztic at this point:

Unused bits of my studio are already on the chopping block to help pay... O_o

the lamest thing about this is the name
the second lamest thing about it is that it appears to have one knob per section that works on a parameter only after you've selected it by button.
the third and fourth lamest things are the lack of a hi pass and ring mod.
the fifth lamest thing is bob's signature front and rear. i love you bob, but....
the sixth lamest thing is my bank account, or I'd be sorely tempted.

i dont like the looks of it. maybe i'm in the minority on that but it just looks odd to me and the front panel is kind of clunky/cheesey looking to me. if you got rid of the wodden end panels i'd have a hard time telling it apart from one of those new roland things at revealed namm.. i'm sure it sounds great but...

i'd still rather have a DSI MEK

<i>the second lamest thing about it is that it appears to have one knob per section that works on a parameter only after you've selected it by button.</i>

I just think that if you are going to go that far, why not go all the way. You could size down the whole interface by making a really small section of just uniform buttons, and having one universal knob (of extremly high quality).

And why have the button that selects waveforms or whatever? Why not select the waveform with the knob too?

I don't mean to be a player hater, by all means don't let my naysaying interfier with your fun and excitment at all, but I don't really understand what all the hype is about? This seems like just another monosynth to me. Now, if Moog were to create a modular system, but with a push button modulation matrix instead of patch cords (so I could save patch layouts, and use multiple configurations for live performance instead of having to repatch everything for 20 minutes which makes modulars not very viable for live use), that would truly be something to bust a nut over.

But then again, I think the E-mu Emulator II is the best piece of gear ever made, and maybe I am just bitter that they will never rerelease stuff like that as long as live, but they will milk that Moog fetish like anything.

My friend at Messe says that they're doing a "Stage" edition with plastic side-panels and amber LEDs for $999.
