They've done it several times! Micromoog, Prodigy and Rogue were all budget-minded too.

Technically, that was a Radio Shack populist synth. It wasn't the synth Moog would have put out, it was the synth Radio Shack demanded they make.

I think timing is what's throwing everyone off. Just about every manufacturer makes several versions of all their products. Are we REALLY, REALLY surprised or bewildered that 'gasp' Moog make a rack/desktop version of one of their products? It it was here shortly after the arrival of the Phatty, then no one would have these reactions.


But since they waited soooo loooooonnnnggggg and still haven't made an Uber-Poly, everyone is watching their releases like hawks and questioning their every move. There's a forum where a user reports on whatever copyright or patent Moog takes and starts the speculation engine the next day. Sheesh.

How many analogue synth choices did you have at their height in popularity?
Do you have that many choices today?

But yet, some are still begging KORG and Roland to make analogue synths again...and actually sound like they're holding their breath until they do.

I absolutely LOVE this comment from the site:

"@Paul MacGruber I bet your music sounds SO much better thanks to the superior edge of using only DC90 freq processors. just the other day i listened to this shitty album that clearly had far too few tri-conversions per cycle coming from the synths, it was just pathetic. obviously those musicians were just using toys. good thing you and I are better than that.

amazing you can care about stuff like this and yet not manage to spell synthesizer correctly. "

Did I mention that I love it?

That would stumble into the territory of the name making a tiny lick of sense.

Looks to be about 19" wide. I really hope it's rack mountable.

Looking at the bolts in the side of the pic I reckon rack ears are at least an option even if they aren't included.

I'm a huge fan of cranking the gain to 10 on most amps, and the metasonix company in general...but the f**k f**k is a load of c**p :D

While not its official name or designation, Air Force guys pretty much refer to this solely as the BUFF or "Big Ugly Fat f**k". :lol: To the point that internet searches and wikipedia turn this up when you search that.
