That would be totally rad, but given that this is Moog we're talking about, I can't imagine it would cost any less than getting an original.

The original had tons of matched transistors. Will the new ones be doing this, or some new voice design? Surface mount technology, or the big old stuff?

The photo I saw on Matrixsynth was inconclusive.

What did they do for the recent Modulars..?

They were pretty authentic, I think...

Well I'm surprised. Considering what they were asking for the Voyager I figured a genuine repro would run $5k easy.

Now I'm torn between saving for this and saving for a P6/OB-6...

Yep. Moog website says the modulars are all hand built to original circuit board designs. Moog will probably make an official announcement soon about the Mini re-issue.

Far out, seems like every vintage synth I've bought is being reissued, not such the solid investment after all it seems :cry:

Looks like it'll have MIDI too if that pic is anything to go by.

I'm surprised they didn't reissue it with a mini keyboard and microswitches instead of knobs.

Can we call it discrete when there are 741 op amp chips in there (as per the original design)?

And a USB port, of course.
