First I sold my Radias-R and Korg discontinued it.

Next I sold my Poly Evolver Rack and DSI discontinued it.

Then I sold my Voyager RME and Moog discontinued it.

What should I sell next? :lol:
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

There is one common denominator in your list, they are all rack units.
Perhaps this is an indicator rackmount versions aren't money makers, and keyboard versions are. ;)

The Robert Rich EP is quite sub-standard for Robert, especially when you know "Bestiary".

Maybe the Voyager doesn't have much more scope to offer?

I think that's true, people want instruments, and a rack (although it kinda is) just doesn't feel like one.

Shame really, I think the RME was a great option for those tight on space :)

If you have an MS-20M, don't sell it! I'm saving up for one. (Or you could sell it to me. That would be fine :mrgreen: )

Hopefully this is making room for something else from Moog. The RME is really nice and I almost bought one a few times, but I do enjoy using a complete instrument with keys.
