How disappointed will you be when it turns out to be a line of 5u modules?

That's my guess too. I wouldn't be disappointed, I think that would be cool even though I'll probably never start a 5u system.

Moog recently registered "Model D" as a trademark ;)

I'm on the Moog email list, and whenever there is a big announcement of exciting news of a new product to be released, they alert subscribers of the event(not the product).
I've not received anything from them about a Monday announcement, so I am skeptical as it being anything to do with a major new synth announcement.
Not saying they don't have something in the cooker for NAMM, but the fact this outlet is the only one talking about it makes me wonder.

1) It's not exclusive to Humbucker Music at all, but it will not be available to all Moog dealers. Only a select few.
2) It's definitely not for everyone.
3) It's not another Voyager.
4) It's not a drum machine, but I would like that to happen so much it's not funny!

seeing as some of the foogers seem to be compact modern interpretations of older moog gear (ie the fooger phaser vs the vintage rack 12 stage phaser, the midi murf seems to be an appropriation of the polymoog resonators? atleast imo) it would be cool to see some limited edition reissues of other old moog tools, like the percussion controller or walking stick cv ribbon? just a thought...

Model E already excists.

In 1998, a Welshman named Alex Winter acquired the UK rights to the Moog name and designs. He managed to produce copies of the Minimoog circuitry, and his company put into production a new version of the Minimoog with a few improvements (mainly the addition of MIDI). Although these were the first new Minimoogs to be produced since 1981, the list price discouraged most buyers and the company folded after producing only a handful of units, probably less than 100. These are now referred to by collectors as the "Welsh Minis", or the "Model E", even though Bob Moog had nothing to do with them.

The word on the street is that Moog will be releasing their own recreated ARP Odyssey?

Did anyone hear about that?

A drum machine would be cool, but I doubt Moog could hit the price point which has been set between Korg, Akai, and Roland. Look at how disappointed most people were with their $2000 tempest... :roll:

Moog is overrated IMO. The best mono synths ever built are the Mono/Poly, MS20, Pro One, and OSCar :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

heresy! lol

but for real, the voyager is spot on
