I would like to see the next inline to have a much more flexible modulation routing.

I would like to see if they can milk their current line any further while still avoiding doing a Poly, Modular or Drum Machine...

If they do another custom purple studded, african wooded, fashizzle endowed Voyager I think I'll lose it :lol:

They would be silly to keep avoiding the modern analog poly market. They gotta have something up their sleeve....

Korg does not have an analog poly synth on the market right now. I think I made pretty clear what I meant, so I'm not sure how you misinterpreted my comment.

They will. They have to come up with something to give Bernie Worrell for his birthday this year.

if they wish to remain a market must be creative the LP in time will dissolve away there is no longer the shock and awe they used to be folks have wised up and with good reason meanwhile jurasic rogues are selling on ebay uk

seriously. "The Chronic" was 20 years ago. This 2nd hand ghetto slang sounds silly when regular folks use it. Even more so when it's an MI manufacturer. Besides, if it's not ghetto slang it's hippie slang. And we all hate the hippies right?


Though to be honest, Moog has always had corny names.
Taurus?
Source?
Prodigy?

Either way, now I HAVE to buy a Phatty while I can still get one new. I was going to get one anyway. Since I picked up the Taurus III I have really clicked with the Moog approach to multi-function controls.

I am hoping the sub-phatty is not the replacement for the Little Phatty. I wish we would get something with less emphasis on the 'timbre du jour' and more flexibility.
A poly would be great but they would have to charge quite a pretty penny for it.

ps I just wish we could get one more revision of the MP201 OS.

ouch...too true of too many of us.

For the record, my band plays out, even if only once or twice a year.

I love Moog gear, and have owned 2 Little Phatties as well as several Foogers. The thing that always gets me though, is the lack of any real modulation choices. One LFO and zero extra EG's leaves you with little room to make it sound interesting. If you get the CV out mod, I suppose that would open up some possibilities, but it's an "upgrade" just to get that.
Whatever they choose to do, I'm hoping some of these issues are addressed, and they make a synth more comparable to what DSI offers in even their low end machines, like MoPho.
Bassist, synth junkie

it would be nice to have a state variable filter for one. Low pass only gets boring.

The switchable dual lowpass and highpass filters in the Voyager are fantastic. It would be cool to see them implemented in a smaller, economy priced synth. The Moog Traveler. Or the Moog Wayfarer.
