Moog Grandmother

I wasn't aware of this thing until Soundwave mentioned it in passing...

It's one of the fugliest synths I've seen. It might even be fuglier than that Alesis Chrome-O-Matic thing-a-ma-bob.

:grin: :grin: :grin: yes I know you have a Chrome-O-Matic.

I think I saw that on synthtopia.

Is that a real moog product? I think it said they wanted to recreate the look and feel of the Radioshack branded moogs.

Google and Bing can't find that... what the heck is it?

As for this Moog, I don't find it particularly ugly. I actually kinda like that layout, I love 70s designs. Not the prettiest, but kinda cool.

Most people would agree it looks stupid. Also it has a stupid name. It does however sound great and has a cool feature set. It is supposed to be affordable. We'll see.

i’m like a 3/10 on this, esp cause i assume it’s over $1,000

i just don’t see the point in it :idk:

the whole sub phatty range was very sweet compared to this imho

honestly tho i think i’m getting teh fatigue of analogue everything and am retreating into my sampler more and more these days :grin:

I'm putting my foot down on this: It's ugly, and I won't have it.

There, let that be the end of it. \_:mad:_/


I *did* get the immediate Realistic vibe, though; the case and overall proportions are nearly identical. They should have used baton toggles like the Realistic had for even more nostalgia. But man it's ugly, and for $1000, it's pretty basic.

also: one slider? Everything else is a knob except the sustain? Why does it warrant a slider? why? WHY??

Meh. I honestly think I'd rather have the Behringer D-thingie.

The built in spring reverb is honestly the main thing I see positive about this synth. As the demos on the site seem to show, it seems to allow you to get into that 1960s/1970s electronica exotica style pretty easy. I'll keep this synth in mind if someone wants me to imitate 1970s PBS bumpers or something. Or maybe I'll just buy a spring reverb pedal instead. :tounge:

Oh man. Its got this weird additive single oscillator, but you can combine the 32, 16, 8, 4, 2 foot stops, and each can have a different waveform - only square and saw and maybe another. The 8' had a chorus effect that's like playing, but works on saw too.

Then it has this weird multi lfo section that ends in a sample and hold. The filter is beautiful and it has organ keys. Nice.

It sounds good, and it does chorus III which would have been a bad mistake to omit. Still, Juno chorus never did and never will beat a CE-2.

I'm starting to get disillusioned with synths, you guys.

This synth - I've been seeing it all over the YouTubes and people saying it's the best synth of 2018 blah blah blah.

Disillusionment: Why are there so many synths that basically can all do the same things that basically all sound exactly alike with only differences in the extreme minutiae? To me, this is one of them. It sounds like... every other Moog ever made. Ever. Am I being weird about this? Does anyone else feel the same way? IS THIS REAL LIFE?

anyway

I am also one of those people that can't tell the newer Moogs apart from each other, some are a bit bassier, some sound a bit thinner, and that's about it. The basic sound to me is the same.

Now the original model D and the Moog on the other hand had a really sweet sound. And I liked the sound of the Source as well.

I think that perhaps the best sounding polysynth was the Memorymoog. But I may think that because a bandmate had one that I got to monkey with for several months.
