Moog might be considering a new polysynth...

Post by DIGITAL SCREAMS » Sat Jan 10, 2009 5:35 pm

Moog are in talks with some big named artists about the possibility of a new polysynth.

Apparently they are already looking into the spec, layout and design.

Cheers

I'd be pleased with a 3 voice expansion box for the LP.

A polyphonic moog seems like the obvious next step. I do think they will have to find a delicate balance with the price though. They have to have a volume of sales to make it worth their time to develop. That said, if moog develops a reasonably priced polysynth I would seriously consider it.
