Sweeping pronouncements aside, this little synth could actually be an entry-level device for someone who is not a "Moog name hipster".

You want entry-level, seriously, get the Microbrute. $30 less, MIDI, and an actual keybed instead of that ridiculous button nonsense.

But also fewer patch points, less CV control, and no Moog filter. More importantly, this is aimed at the DIY crowd, not guys who just want a cheap analog synth. This is more comparable to something like the PAiA Fatman kit.

Played with it this weekend - it is definitely a Moog.

And there's a MIDI hack for it already.

Nice of Moog to make it available (to recover from Moogfest?) but nay, not at this price point for me.

I was really close to pulling the trigger on it. Then I realized, I already own two moogs and a ton of moog processing. I will buy a Phatty or Voyager later this year too. I really don't have any need for one of those, and can't imagine what I would even use it for. And the pin patch points woulds just mean another set of custom patch cable adapters.
I'll leave the Volca Moog for people that have never owned a moog. No need to be greedy.

Besides, I am on a quest to get all my gear racked or mounted in cases. This does not abet that quest.

Hmmm. No soldering required, limited edition. Obviously they don't want the trouble of people complaining when they break it during assembly...

Love the disclaimer... They tell you not to modify it, then go through how it is designed to be modified....

If it said Korg on the front, people would be pretty excited ;)

Then again, maybe Korg would sell it for $150 :?

I wonder what the phrase "extremely limited quantities" means. Anybody got any intel on that? (Where's Doty when you need him? :) )

I mean, if there's only 200 worldwide, that makes it a future collector's item that some "Moog name hipster" will likely pay even more money than the already-ridiculous asking price of $329.

In case you're wondering: Yes, I pre-ordered mine. :lol: :lol: :lol:

That all ok, I just wonder why several synths seem to be "cool" and pick random german words. Like Streichfett (butter) or Werkstatt (workshop).

What's next, the Yamaha Hentai? :lol:

"Streichfett" is not really "butter", "Butter" is "butter". The joke is: "fett" = PHAT. And "streichen" means "smearing" basically (that's where the butter reference is coming from), but a "Streicher" is also a "stringer" (the actual instruments)...

And "workshop" for a synth that was supposed to be made in a workshop, not so bad IMO.

Better than the metal umlaut all day long :lol:

I ordered one... I only make space sounds in my apartment anyway, so this type of keyboard suits me... :P
