Oscillators
create complex waveforms


What does that even mean? Complex because they can do FM? Because there's 3 and you can layer them together? Because they can be harmonically rich shapes like saws or squares?

Doubtful, but:

It would be perversely hilarious if people finally got the Moog poly they'd been asking for all these years and it was a goddamn parameter-access design with membrane buttons.

And it was VA.
And actually was $5K.
And had minikeys.

Eh?
This is what the average Macbeth monosynth goes for. The model D goes (went?) for $3500, the GRP A4 is 3800 Euros. How much did the S1 sell for at the time?

Probably the only legit info posted on this thread.

Seems like anybody can say anything on GearSlutz and Synhtopia and Matrixsynth will breathlessly pass it on as if it were real news.

Supposedly at least the front panel circuitry (you can zoom in by clicking on the high res photo link below to get labels on the PCB for the functions of the parts):

well, those pics seem pretty legit...wow. an updated memorymoog indeed.
SynthBaron
Notice the "triangle" pots for each oscillator, which probably adjusts the variable core shape discussed in the patent I linked earlier. And also the individual OLED screens for each oscillator, presumably to view (at a minimum) the funky waveshapes you're dialing in.
solusarpus
I’m assuming that the large screen is the xy pad (ala animoog?), as well as a more general menu screen... I doubt they would include a voyager style xy pad as well as the pictured screen unless the one shown isn’t touch sensitive...

Really, you think so? That's so clearly a 3D rendering of a Memorymoog with a Seaboard attached. Or I've probably missed the sarcasm smile

Wow, that's pretty revealing. Where on earth did you find this? Anything else at that source?
huffnPuff
I can’t see the full size image and read the lables for some reason, but the PCBs and the rendered product image don’t have much in common?

In which case the accompanying description and price estimates don’t mean much either?
SynthBaron
I think people are getting confused: the Memorymoog 2.0 image is an obvious joke/fantasy Photoshopped by someone, the PCB's and matching product description seem to me to be real at this point.

The zoom didn't work for me either, the first time I viewed it, but then it worked after that ( !? ). Try it again.

This thing is going to be ridiculous.

Man, the Universally Educated really ganged up on you in that thread. I find it entertaining and even humorous when the naysayers and ever-so-smart folks insist on how bad a given idea is and do their best to shoot it out of the sky. People that DREAM are the ones that end up blazing new pathways.

As far as the cost of this ~Moog~ ... if it is actually real, and it is actually going to be built, a $5k to $7k sticker would be fine (clearly above my own station, but that isn't my point). I mean, people are willing to wait in line and camp out in the parking lot waiting for the store's doors to open just to obtain the latest version of a stupid smartphone. The Dave Smith polys sell for half that, however this ~Moog~ would be a highly coveted creation.

Look at how expensive that silly 5 octave Voyager is ... $5k for a performance monosynth? Really? And yet, they sell. Modestly, but still.

I paid over $5k for a new loaded Kurzweil 2600 76 key back in 2003 .... didn't bat an eyelash.

So as long as this ~Moog~ (yes, I am mocking it until I see tangible evidence of it's existence) is designed right, and is NOT some membrane switch slathered nonsense, and "LOOKS like $5k" ... it will sell. There are some people in this very subforum with more than that in just the sequencer section of their modulars.

Membrane switches are for microwave ovens and kitchen appliances (they're easy to clean) ... they're not for top drawer poly synths.

If the likes of Sweetwater offer 24 month same as cash financing, it will surely sell.

Again, as long as alllllll of the right check-boxes are ticked ... we got us a Moog poly. That's a tall order though ... I hope the new design team is up to task. And the damned thing best have a FATAR TP/9 in it!! As well as at least a dozen or more CV I/O jacks, TWO expression pedal inputs, and TWO footswitch inputs. And these are minimum requirements!

MIDI controller capability would also be a must-do.

Now ... if only it's a real, actual, tangible item ... we're good.

cool Rexola.
