I think it's stupid that moog would make this without a keyboard. if they could make a version of this with an inbuilt keyboard then people would buy tons of them.

Yeah but when they added the keyboard, it lost a lot of it's inherent analogue warmth you know?

That's what recording space heaters are for.

My old space heater died and I had to buy a new one. It's not as warm as the old one. Why can't they just keep making them like they used to?

I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

Gotta give props to Moog. Finally it's a populist synth product from them.

Why do you demand the impossible SF?

This thing is so uninspiring, and so predictable. Sure, this is the safest move they could make, but come on, why no also coincide this with some uber-simplified 4-voice rack or something? You can just see them sitting around a table going, What amazingly benign new product can we come out with next? I know, let's take the keyboard OFF the phatty! woooooooooooooooaaaaahhh.... Obviously from the same brain that thought it would be a good idea to put the expansion boxes INSIDE the voyager.

The only positive thing I can say is that at least they haven't entirely sold out and are making moog grooveboxes.

No... Moog is also working on Iphone apps... I'm not joking... moog on iphone

I really hope they think about a voice expansion box for the LittlePhatty and the new SmallPhatty. Just a box, no knobs, only one ON/OFF switch. Plug the box in polychain and your LP/SP is 6 voice... ok stop dreaming.

Yeah, this is true. In my opinion though, it is still pricey to pay $3000 for a four voice, but without looking at prices for major components, I of course can only place my opinion on the matter. ;)

As for them more or less rehashing the LP, I think it's a pretty good idea to release a rackmount version. The key version has sold well, but some people will ultimately want to save the money from buying a keyboard version because they may already have a master unit. It seems like this may be the closest one will get to a polyphonic Moog for now.
bonne chance

Hah, I just realized the "artist's impression" on the Gearjunkies site would be at least twice as wide as a rack unit could be. No wonder something looked really odd about it.

..woha.. to me the keyboardless phatty is the excact product I was hoping for, boring as it may be.. It the logical step: giving the consumers the option of having a moog at under $1000. for me, removing the keyboard means it takes up MUCH less space in addition to cutting off some $2-300 on the price. win and win

..or you could be just joking for all I know, internet sarcasm and irony is getting harder to identify...
