Loving the comments there about people wondering if it has analogue IO. :D

I can just see the Moog engineers unveiling it and then realising they'd forgotten to give it an audio out. Whoops!

"thats all fun in games if you want a toy synthisier but real modulaters only use DC 90. frequency processors (the model before used the N1 Photon I believe)

a real modulator like a doepfer or even korg has nearly 7x the amount of tri-conversions per cycle second and it would be nearly impossible for a 4 knob moog to replicate a harmony such as this."
:lol:

very similar in features and price to the new SEM, right?

Mostly hearing people talking about CV ins/outs, and it's a valid point - being able to connect this to a modular would be pretty cool, ala SEM.

Thumbs up to Moog though, and the price seems much more attractive - considering moog's very costly items lately.

Be interested to hear more about it :)

Includes memories and an arpeggiator, has less knobs and patch points.

Stabs... I read that as CV-IO, which is a fair question, right?

It wouldn't make sense to take them off. I'd bet they're still there.

Those comments sound like an everyday thing here :lol:

Someone posted "A four voice Moog for $3000. Not bad.". What's this world coming to?! That is pretty bad considering DSI can sell an 8 voice for $2000. Surely the VCO's and half voice wouldn't make the cost that much more if any over. Again, paying for the name. I guess us SCI/DSI users should be glad he couldn't retain the name! lol

Yeah, I was more meaning expanded CV options and CV outs, given you can only get CV outs on the Little Phatty via modification.

But then without an internal keyboard I guess they won't bother with them since the most common ones are the Keyboard CV and Gate anyway.

These are the CV outs (modification) for the LP;

- Gate (O to +5V)
- Pitch (1 volt per octave)
- Volume Envelope (0 to 5 Volts)
- Filter Envelope (O to 5 Volts)
- Mod Bus (Variable)

wonder if it's polychainable. the voyager / voyager rack is, no…?

There are no CV inputs or outputs on the Voyager RME (rack version). You will have to buy the CV I/O boxes separately for that. So it's very well possible that this one here won't have them either in order to cut down costs.

The Voyager RME is polychainable. Just haven't seen too many people actually doing it.

Have you compared the guts of a Voyager to an Evolver? There's an enormous difference. DSI use a much higher level of integration. Notice he's not building Prophet 5s any more and ask why.

Integrating 4-6 of those things within the same enclosure would cut down the costs too. Although I suspect Moog won't even consider putting out a Poly until they've made their money off this thing. Hopefully, I'm wrong about that part though.

Actually, why the h**l should I care. I don't even want a modern polyphonic Moog.

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.
