Re: Do people really not like the Micromoog?

You know, I don't wan't to be a d**k, but statements like "the Minitaur can run circles around the Micro" are based in such massive and contemptible ignorance that is infuriates me. I made the damned demo video for the Minitaur for Moog, and I loved it's nice big rich sound... but it is a DESPERATEL...

Re: Do people really not like the Micromoog?

The Micromoog is one of the best Moog synthesizers ever made. It was created by Bob Moog and Jim Scott... and the fact that it "only has one oscillator" is utterly irrelevant. You don't need multiple oscillators to do anything beyond having intervals. The Micromoog has CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE WAVESHAP...

And hey, RetroSynthAds... you are cooler than cool. I have a lot of the magazines that you scan, but I very... VERY frequently go to your site to check stuff. Thank you for being such a great resource on the Internet.

Re: Akai Analogue Polysynth: Timbre Wolf

The "Timbre Wolf" pun is entirely visual, since technically, "timbre" and "timber" don't rhyme. But having said that, the way we pronounce "timbre" in English (something like "tam-ber") isn't quite right, either. It's a French word, and the French would definitely pronounce it differently. We've An...

Re: Looking forward...

It's time to stop looking for synths that sound like synths or sound like people who used synths that sounded like synths in the past.
Back to synthesis to create sounds that no one has ever heard, and that perfectly suit your creative endeavors.

Re: Akai Analogue Polysynth: Timbre Wolf

It's the classic "Mogue" vs "Moo-g" argument. actually Moog is a proper name of a person. So it is not as open to interpretation. However he said his name, that is the pronunciation. And he also said that different people in his family pronounced it both ways so either was fine with him. So I say i...

It's a pity that the pun only works if you can't pronounce timbre correctly.

Re: Analogue Additive Synthesizer

For a synthesizer to do effective analog additive, it needs to have an envelope per harmonic, a very great deal of harmonics, and the ability to have non-harmonic partials. It gets stupidly expensive when you start piling on these things, plus most people are unhappy with the fact that its challengi...

Re: Korg PE-1000 - One Weird Beauty!

Fantastic information as usual, Dan!

I only recently found out that this device has an oscillator-per-key, and I am kicking myself for never having bought one. I will be on the lookout, though. This is real polyphony.

I don't have the schematics, but I've seen pictures. If you have functionality questions, I can answer them.

Re: Analogue Additive Synthesizer

There are none.

I have a design, but I'm trying to find people to do it.


The Hammond isn't analog, it's electromechanical.

Wow, this is an old thread.

But if you want to know a bit about the Eddie Harris synthesizer built by Bob Moog, I know a thing or two. :D

I am going to be demonstrating this synth.

I played it more than any other synth at NAMM, and I am overwhelmed with joy about it.

Re: HUGE MOOG MUSIC NEWS COMING MONDAY!!!

This is "some of the biggest news in Moog history?"

I don't know who "Humbucker Music" is, and apparently they don't know who any of you are, either.

I think all of these responses are perfect.
