That's kinda ironic given that the whole point of the Minimoog was to provide a portable alternative to their modular systems. Just saying :lol:

But Rush built a minimoog into an Oberheim 8-voice. And there's nothing miniature about an 8-voice, that's for sure.

Girls, this looks like a modern mini moog D, quite nice it looks too... Mini-Mac-Moog almost!

What a risky situation, "mac" is unique to Scotland but to use it in any product name.. risky! awaits legal documents from Apple Inc.

He is using his own surname as the brand name, so its not risky at all. His full name is Ken Macbeth and he has been designing synths for a few decades without any scots making a scene about it :ugeek:

I would love a McBeth Elements and MBI Music Easle . They are the only instruments that I would allow someone to smash my testicles with a hammer for.

wish,

I'll stop by tomorrow with the synths and the hammer. How many smashes can I make? ;)
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

It has different features than a classic Model-D (MIDI, velocity sensitivity, dedicated LFO). Clearly it's a Moog, and it's indisputably a Minimoog, but is it still a "Model-D?"

Model E 8-)
This looks like a psychotropic reaction. No wonder it's so popular...

Or even F - that Welsh clone from the '90s was called "E" AFAIK.

BTW I find it pretty strange to call that synth "Moog Model D" instead of just "Minimoog".

Me too. Given that A, B and C were prototypes never released to the public. IIRC Automatic Gainsay had a fruitless rant about that, here, a few years ago...

It's a handy indicator that someone is trying too hard.

That quote attributed to me was not made by me. Is this forum moderated??

knolan, I hate to break it to you, but Dr. Phibes is actually your Mr. Hyde persona.
