This dose look good to me , a bit higher than I would assume , but not again when you think of the Moog Brand . Either way I did like the LP a lot so it's on the list .
Question to any one in the know ... LP owners maybe .

The Rekon audio vst editor shows a control to select filter pole settings ; 1/2/3/ 4 pole , but I dont see that on the LP or the SP for that matter - is this possible on the unit without any software control or through midi control maybe ?

I get the impression it's doing some sort of work around calibration stuff to achieve this , but I dont know ?

Edit : I downloaded the Slim's pdf . this feature is in the menu system .
Seams like a cool feature ... wonder why they hide that in the menus and don't mention it much ? Very useful especially on the audio in I would think .
Some wish to leave their mark ... I want to leave a scar .

The Slim Phatty sounds like a very nice product. I always try to save space in my setup and at the same time, it could just replace my analog filter.
I'm sure it can deliver awesome bass, but what about the mid? I'd like to get those thick very vintage quirky Moog tones and weird psychedelic flutey leads.

20% VAT coming in in January in the UK, :shock:

Yanks, you might want to come over with some nylon stockings cos our women will be all over you. Just bring over a few Moogs will ya?

As for the new Oberheim SEM, Analogue Solutions (a UK company) makes a nice clone called Semblance, or even better the Telemark.

That is crazy! You guys ought to embrace more economic liberty..I feel bad that the isle of Adam Smith is being slammed with overzealous taxation. You guys should have some Moogs if you want them!

I've arranged a tour of the factory and will be picking this up upon my arrival.....I will beg for them to check if they have any NOS MOOG OS's.

Actually, the UK suggested list price of the Slim Phatty seems to include UK tax whereas the US suggested list doesn't and I inquired about it due to the discrepancies in suggested retail prices vs fair currency exchange. Factor the tax in, and it would seem that prices are not as far apart in the two countries. Sure there's an import cost as well.

I think it was relevant and on topic because money is needed to buy the Slim Phatty and the costs count.

I'm pretty sure it's entirely possible to "have a Moog" even in a country where the taxes are higher. VAT has been 20-25%.in this country for ages. Yet it didn't stop me from getting a Moog.

from the front panel
Master button
turn value knob to advance preset
cursor button
turn value knob to filter pole
cursor button
turn value knob to select 1,2,3,4

Or if your LP is running OS 2.2
midi CC 109
values:
0-31 = 1 pole
32-63 = 2 poles
64-95 = 3 poles
96-127 = 4 poles

I like it and would buy it if I didn't have a voyager. I think it's going to be widely popular.
