cool interview! it would be AWESOME to see new moog modules, and based on him mentioning people asking about the taurus before it was announced, it gives more weight to that poly rumor too :O

new moog modulars would be awesome, as long as they can be more innovative then what synthesizers.com is doing.

Cheers for that - an interesting read. However is that recent interview? Because if it is then the Little Phatty Stage II is hardly what I'd call a "future release".

Yes. not that old, but ...I did three different interviews. One that was supposed to be in last issue- following the last NAMM and the second part was split among issues so technically this is part 1 and 2. Part 3 is very cool and it's timeless so Idecided I had enough synth meat for this issue. There's also a lot more audio examples but they fit more with the direction of next issue.

Someone should have caught that though and edited it out.... #-o

amos seems like a really cool guy... all the vids and stuff i've seen and read about him show him off as someone who really has a passion for what he does

kind of makes me want to rejoin the moog family

Don't worry about it - I was only curious. It's still a great article - especially when it's free and presented in a fancy Flash viewer like that.

I had the good fortune to have a short Gmail chat with Amos last year. He struck me as a really bright, level-headed sort of chap with a genuine enthusiasm for synthesizers. Definitely one of us.

You can chat with him here aswell, he's been a regular poster whenever Moog has had something new up their sleeve.
