$5999, even!
Ouch, indeed! - Suddenly making the $3500 GRP V22 to be nearly half off, in price :zombie:

Is this a hypothetical or did they say they're about to drop some new?

Due to new price of vocoders, I'm announcing a new currency based on their interior parts, which is obviously different than all other synthesizer circuits and components.

Approximate street price is relative to three Bitcoin. This new currency is called Vocodium.

$6000 vocoder. Moog obviously continues to make sound financial decisions.

Hey let’s not get hysterical, it will really only cost you $5000.

I only watched one video of the Moog but still preferred the sound of the classic Roland vocoder based on that

This is what Moog is all about, charging more just because its Moog because there will always be people lining up to buy the expensive thing, just because its the expensive thing.

Enrico from GRP makes fine instruments, which are assembled by hand in Italy and yet the V22 is almost half the cash, sounds *much* better (judging from demos) and has more frequency bands.

Moog is just closing it self into the massively expensive niche...and rightfully so. I think its the only way for them to survive because they'll get slaughtered otherwise and, unfortunately (even if I have no soft spot for the brand), close down.

Everyone remembers how Moog was never known as an affordable brand right? The Model D was meant to help but it was still a big investment. I think it was $1200 which would be around $8000 today.

^ So didn't the model D actually make Moog the first company to offer an "affordable" synthesizer for the private individual?

I think it was supposed to be more affordable in contrast to the 10s of the 1000s of dollar rack synth.
