LP already is polychainable, so no reason this wouldn't be.

I challenge people not to turn this into a bitching thread. Bet you can't do it.
Well you see, I can't help but be disappointed that it isn't capable of polishing my balls all while working my shaft.

It's a LPII in rack form, were you expecting it to magically sprout heaps of knobs?

Of course ;)

I hadn't realized that the LP had only four knobs until I looked it up again. I've only played one briefly and did not like the interface.

I actually wouldn't mind getting one and having it in the rack - I really like the LP Stage II but space is an issue, hence my interest in this, plus at the cataloged price I honestly can't see this not selling well.

I think it looks pretty cool too, I like the new button style.

And the knob interface is actually not too bad, apart from one knob for ADSR, which I'm not to keen on, I much prefer four vertical sliders for the ADSR and knobs for everything else like on the V-Synth.

OH_MY_GOD! Are you saying a company put out a product that makes sense? :idea:
You mean, you might be satisfied enough to not fire the entire staff of Moog and have VSE run the company instead??

I almost said I don't understand why the micro-concern and then I realized this site should be called Vintage Synth Enthusiast.

Reminds me of the monotron threads and how everyone was so disturbed.
Yet, KORG puts it out and they can't make enough.
Glad they didn't come here first.

Yeah, it should. Some explorers are close minded. I would admit to being somewhat guilty of this, but I would still like to explore anything I can get my hands on. I don't think it's too bad to be biased toward your favorite designer or manufacturer though, because we do all have different tastes. I think with some of these releases people don't just give their opinions, but their "demands".

Once you/we/I accept that everyone is not here for the same reasons, it's easier to digest.

At first I was like WTF?! Endless threads bitching about every new product coming. Stuff wasn't even out yet and already everyone had a reason they wouldn't buy it. I think the douche-bag to normal_human_being ratio was about even with Harmony Central.

tons of posts: Roland should make another [insert classic] they'd make a bundle....
Why doesn't Moog go back to making modulars, they'd make a bundle....

I remember when the ongoing request was a monophonic analogue.
Now we have plenty of choices and the new request is a polyphonic. figures.
The toy Gakken has like 3 or 4 threads spanning tons of pages- KORG drops a similar (and better) product and no one can figure out why...

I also find the direct contrast of posts interesting.
One thread has die-hards saying appearance doesn't matter, only the sound does and two threads below it are comments about the color and even the fonts used on synths.

And now this week's weirdness is angling toward the NAMEs of synths. :lol:
The same synths appearing in most attractive synths and ugliest synths.

You have got to love it here.
Name a better forum.

"You couldn't have misunderstood the intention of my post more if you tried"

My...thoughts...exactly....
Um...I have nothing against you or your post. And I don't know how you could read into anything negative about your post. There is a trend on this site to complain about EVERY product that's been released since 1980- something.
Which almost makes sense hence the Vintage Synth Expl.....

I find it almost no-news that Moog made a desktop version of their Phatty. It's perfectly in line with any product release to make a rack unit. Yet, on a few sites, it's like Moog have done a horrible and unexpected thing.

The iPhone app I can understand because that's left field and truly unexpected. A rack unit is not.
I reference your post to say that you can see the obvious sense in releasing a rack unit and actually PRAISE the damn thing for its purpose. For you, it's a perfect fit and I fully agree with your WHYs.

I liked the Phatty too, but I don't need one more keyboard, much less have room for another piece.
If it wasn't for the Voyager RME sitting to my left, this would be on the list.

I've been more and more into wanting a LPII lately - I'm thinking this would be a nice addition to chain up to my MEK and blast away...

No one is poo-pooing this being "non-vintage" or whatever :roll: and you're right-it is non-news. Having a phatty rack makes perfect sense, and will undoubtedly sell well. I hope it does. What is news is that Moog waited, what, 4-5? years to release this thing... possibly missing their chance to really capture the initial phatty interest, and having all that the remaining time to make something a little more interesting.

My bitching at least is out of the shear lack of imagination involved... It's like moog would rather just make subtle modifications to their existing product line than offend current customers with new, non-upgradeable updates. Maybe that's the point.
Do you even post on vse bro?
