I think it's finally gone out of production, or is about to. I saw something back in November from DSI saying they were about to end production on the original tabletop mono unit, which was the only version still in production.

Our own VSE page on the Fatman says it was first offered in 1992. So it's now been available for 24 years. Which is longer than the entire length of the original R.A. Moog / Moog Music's existence. :shock:

I think that for a single version product, the Alesis SR-16 is the winner !
The making of my modular... (ok it's in french, but the pictures are easy to understand !)

Got one last year. Not luck but 9 years on the wait list.

But they weren't being produced for decades.
