Moog should get past the "let's rehash an old model with no menus and call it OLD SCHOOL!" or another moogerfooger and start innovating again. Guess there's not that much you CAN innovate on when everything has been done to death for the past 40 years.

Moog pretty much invented voltage controlled synthesizers back in the 60s. They decided what should be the standard waveforms. And everyone else followed.

It doesn't really feel to me like they are rehashes and besides that f**k awesome of them to put out analogs that you can buy brand new without having to worry what you're going to get on eBay. All the stuff they have been putting out is good and it seems to be getting better with the Minitaur and now this awesome sub phatty synth. Go Moog!

Inventing? Moog have been! Moog guitar and all the crazy pickup stuff coming up.
I'd hate to be moog to be honest. Stuck between a rock and a hard place for sure.
They do a re-hash and people moan it's not new. They do something new and people moan that the ladder filter is not up to model d standards and such and such is not as good as the model d.

Embrace the variety and change and enjoy the vintage all in one. One company does not have to cover all the ground.

Interesting enough. I'd really like to see Moog make this kind of a budget piece ($400-$500 US) since everything else has been a bit on the stupidly expensive side with the exception of the Minitaur.

Have been wondering about what they are gonna stick it in (?) and I agree; a nice sloped non weird panel for sure.

How many days 'til it is revealed?

Don't get your hopes up. The Minitaur is $600 and has no sub osc, noise generator, kb, wheels, etc. Stab Frenzy already mentioned this will cost around a grand.

Waiting for a $400 Moog synth is as silly as waiting for a $4000 Lamborghini..it'll never happen.

Well, anything is possible and I'm constantly surprised by some of the unexpected stuff in the synth world. For instance, I never thought Korg could put out a $50 analogue synthesizer, but they did.

The Minitaur is selling for $495 in town and AKAI released a CV controller keyboard. There's a rumour that Korg are reissuing the MS 20 to modern standards with analogue attributes.

I guess what I'm saying is - you never ever know what the future can hold.

So with exactly the same number of keys as a minibrute - isn't this just a knee j**k response to that "product"?

And if so - what is the point? Market share?

I have a feeling it won't be long before my LP stage is up for sale and I am waving my cash for one of theses. It's looking more like the phatty engine which I like and know well.
