Re: New Moog

Wow, I only thought audiophiles bitched this much about gear! They always have to find some supposed little flaw to point out to prove to other people that they are "knowledgable". c**p like: "It should have ___, and not ___", or "How dare they use polycarbonate and tin foil capacitors and not teflo...

Re: Cheap Synths With A Lot of Knobs/Sliders/Switches

There's also the Moog Rogue, the Realistic MG-1, the ARP Axxe, and the Roland SH-09. All vintage mono synths, and all can be had for about the same price or cheaper than a working Juno-106.

Re: Having a problem fine-tuning a synth sound

Is there something that would cause the filter to open wider on that one note? That's what it sounds like to me. Other possibilities: Is the affected note the only time that pitch occurs? A wide open filter could make it sound higher (and depending on the type of filter modeled, much louder), especi...

Re: New Moog

Can't please 'em all. Dave Smith started making hardware again; it was innovative but players asked for old-style synths. So he made the analog line and people complained that it's not innovative. Synthesists said they wanted all-analog synths with modern features. Well, Moog regains his name brand...

Re: New Moog

Moog should get past the "let's rehash an old model with no menus and call it OLD SCHOOL!" or another moogerfooger and start innovating again. Guess there's not that much you CAN innovate on when everything has been done to death for the past 40 years. Moog pretty much invented voltage controlled s...

Re: Moog Opus 3 Chorus Replacement

Why not use something like a guitar pedal for the chorus function? What you ask is certainly possible. You'd have to find a board with the same power supply requirements, comparable signal level requirements (both input and output), that physically fits, and with easily isolated and easily accessed ...

Re: OB-8 losing most voices after warming up

I have a feeling I'm going to be told to re-cap the OB, but.. I'm having an issue where it pretty much won't tune any of the voices after the unit has been warmed up for a while. I already have one voice that won't tune and I just disable it, but once I started having this problem I started thinkin...

Re: DIY PG-200?

Replicating the PG-200 could well be done - no doubt has been done by someone. The electronics are dead simple. The bottom line would be finding the code embedded in the CPU. Poke around the JX3p forums, etc. maybe it's out there all ready. Don't bother to ask Kiwi - the other posters are right: th...

Re: New Moog

So is this "new" or just a rework of an existing product? Depends upon your point of view. For instance, it has the standard Moog filter, and sounds like a modernized version of the original Minimoog oscillators (i.e., L'il and Slim Phatty oscillators). So, no matter what, you can say that every Mo...

Re: OB-8 patch problem

I've measured the voltage at the point indicated and it's +4.96v. Presumably that's low enough to be causing a problem. And what do I need to do to address it? Thanks! Tom +4.96V? It should be AC Voltage. Anyhow, assuming it's 4.96VAC, then that is most likely not the problem. Check the chips I men...
