Cherry Audio "Surrealistic" MG-1 (Moog) FREE (for now)

Get it here!

Available FREE for a limited time, it will be $25 (still cheap) after that. It replicates the Moog/Realistic Concertmate MG-1 monosynth built for Radio Shack in 1982, complete with the organ-like polyphonic oscillator. A few tweaks make it even more usable, like support for a mod wheel and choice of low/last/high note key priority which the original lacked. It's a pretty limited machine but that means patching it is simple for newbies. Without having a real MG-1 to compare the sound to, I'll just say it has enough Moog flavor to be useful.

VST, AU, AAX and standalone operation.

I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

This looks very nice.

I tried out their ARP 2600 trial version and their free version of their modular system.

High quality stuff.

I'm going to purchase the modular, probably the middle version. It really satisfies my curiosity about patching since I doubt I'll ever go that route in the real world. But playing with it really gives me some great ideas on programming my hardware synths. I can see why folks drink the Kool-Aid.
