one year they are actually going to come through with one of the april fools pranks and we are all going to be shocked. Im hoping for the john cage inspired moogerfooger they had a couple years ago that did absolutely nothing. that was brilliant

common Amos, it would be cruel if you are saying this is not an April fools joke, and it was infact an April fools joke...I would like nothing more than some innovation in the world of Guitar synths...

Though I wouldn't want this to have the effect that the Axxe had on Arp...

So wait... this actually is real? (I saw Amos' post on the Moog board)

I've wondered where Moog can really go from where they are now, product-wise. There's not a whole lot that could really top a Voyager in terms of an all-analog monosynth without having the price be as high as a new car. Same with trying to bring out a more affordable synth than a LP; I don't see there being *that* big of a market for a modern-day MicroMoog (unless the price was $600 or less). Analog polyphonics are probably best left as a relic to the past & I don't imagine Moog will go digital / hybrid anytime soon, so a guitar seems fitting enough. It is "Moog MUSIC" after all, not just "Moog Synthesizers."

Well, I shouldn't get too far into it until I know if it is real or not. I'm pretty new to the synth world (got a Moog LP Stage a month or so back; my first and only synth... for now), so maybe the April Fool's tradition includes employees posting on message boards stirring up things. Time will tell, I suppose.

Why is that? I think a Moog polyphonic analog would the perfect next step!

Hmmm, yeah they've been such a success for them in the past. :lol:

I reckon they could do a 4 voice little phatty with a 5 octave keyboard for around $2500, but I just don't know if it'd sell. I'm sure Moog would have looked at how Andromedas have been selling and realised that the market for polyphonic analogues isn't exactly booming.

yeah, it would be great to see a breakdown from Andromeda, P08, SunSyn, Omega 8, etc...I could a 5 voice LP based moog FLYING off the shelves, however....

Or more realistically, some rack-LPs which can be synced together a la DSI Evolver --

Then you could buy as many voices as you could afford.
