Okay, somebody get me a release date for this. I have to know how long before I can own one.

And this had better not be a boutique limited-edition thing.

You mean it responds to every second key you press? ;-)

This is a limited run during Moogfest. An email from Moog said "the pilot-production units built during the festival will only be available for purchase on-site in the Moog Store by Guitar Center. " After Moogfest is over, your best guess on availability.

I can't imagine them holding out on a limited run. The demand for this will be astronomical...assuming it doesn't cost as much as a car.

The term "pilot-production" implies that there could be "regular production" at some point.

You can pre-order now (which I have), very limited run, then it won't be until November when they will be available again. Mine is scheduled for delivery around June 15th.

Wow, dreams really do come true. Bob would be proud. With all the improvements they made, this will be even better than the original! It's high time I sell everything and finally start saving up for a model d.

In the hands-on demo I watched on synthtopia, the Moog employee was saying it has CV-patchable aftertouch routing. That, friends, is badass!

How does this Model D re-issue differ in sound/features from the Moog Voyager Old School?

1. This was built on the Voyager design, not the Model D's design
2. I would assume the Old School circuit board were pre-preprinted

Yes, but based on the video, there's no place to patch "Aftertouch" to "Modulation Amount". So, if true, you cannot do the most common aftertouch effect...you cannot do pitch vibrato. :(

Probably there is no VCA on modulation bus, and instead it is routed directly through mod wheel. (which is obvious way to do things if you don't build a poly or a patch memory).

You can do manual "touch-vibrato", GX-1 style, by routing AT to pitch and wiggling your finger.
