No, no, you're right. Let's get this thing back on track:

On topic:
The Moog Little Phatty was discontinued by Moog Music.

And... um... well... yes.

So, will the prices go up, down or do nothing now that it's been discontinued?

I think prices will stay where they are for used LPs.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

I'm sorry, everyone. I have behaved inappropriately. In real life conversation, I never let topics evolve and change organically over time. If someone attempts to bring up a related but different topic, I shut them down and end the conversation. I don't know what makes me think that sort of thing is acceptable on the internet. I am shamed. :oops:

Seriously, the engine is already there. All it takes is a bit of R&D, production, and watch the cash roll in. h**l, they could even keep in under $3000 if they did it right.

I could see them doing something that would compete directly with the Mopho x4, then further down the road if that sold well they could design synths that competed with the P08 and the 12. It makes sense to me; seeing as there isn't anyone else giving DSI a run for their money in the poly department. They pretty much have a monopoly on that market right now.

the sub phatty is more synth for less money.

seriously, who thought putting only 4 knobs and no noise source on a monosynth priced at over 1k was a good idea?

I think the opposite. With only two octaves, the Sub is less of a synth to me. I'd rather have 4 knobs and a better range of the keyboard. I agree on the noise generator, though. That's from a former long term Little Phatty player.

I think the Little Phatty makes damn good use of those four knobs. I think it is very intuitively laid out, and it is very easy to get used to pushing those buttons. I think it's a fun synth to program, and I never felt inconvenienced by it.

yup.

im more and more attracted to the lil phatty. it really is like a source x4. what other synth has such great visual feedback of saved patches without rotary encoders? the way the knobs save and display the saved param and interpolates so well even if the physical knob is already halfway there. pretty brilliant.

It sounds to me that Moog have made their money its clearly sold well we have been spared yet another special edition in metallic orange or ochre or whatever colour is left I would offer to moog consider with care and logic the next model in the pipeline.
