Perhaps the Moog guitar has CV ins and outs. That sure would complement the Moogerfooger line.

I own one and love it. The arp is really handy. I can use the clock to sync to several synths and softsynths. The pads have to be hit hard on some soft synths but with a compressor in line they get more sensitive. The pads work great without a compressor on some of my hardware synths like my RM1X. Y...

For PC, Chainer could handle a lot of your needs. It's pretty inexpensive and very reliable. It also uses ery little CPU. With it you can quickly switch to any preloaded softsynth, or load your own multi setups. You can assign different Midi channels on a Chainer setup. If you have a keyboard that h...

I think the delay is one of the important sculpting devices used in their sequencing. It gives it that little bounce they have. The Moog Modular V2 comes with some nice TD style sequences. You might want to check that out.

I just feel like Moog has run out of ideas and innovation after this release. Seems very desperate....more of the same. Hardly. The Freqbox and Multipedal are like no other products. I think Moog just saw a potential market for a product (the OS) that was fairly easy for them to produce. Since its ...

Of course there is always the option of just not using the Voyager's presets or any of the digital properties (which, by the way, I don't find a "distraction.")

I have a Voyager, and I like the fact that you can store 800+ presets. I've created about 200 of my own, and it's nice to be able to get to them quickly, especially in live performance where I don't have time to setup intricate patches. It's great to go patch to patch by pushing a button. I've had m...

I've had this one for about a month and really like it. Well built and lots of function for a modest price. Plus, it has an arp which also means it has a midi clock that you can send and sync to other instruments.

Use an expression pedal and modulate the volume slowly in with it. Like everyone else, I agree that lots of delay and reverb will get you going.

Since SmartMedia cards are discontinued, surely Korg will have an updated Electribe.
