lets hope it has built in midi/cv. Sounds nice... apparently has a sub-osc.. maybe a 1 osc bass synth... I only heard lower tones in the vid; is it a minitaur kb? it has a a sub osc, perhaps instead of two osc to keep price down to compete with Minibrute? Also has a noise generator. I wonder if it's a little phatty V3 or Minitaur Keyboard? The osc sound is nice and it looks properly knobby!

Sub-osc, something new called Multidrive (pre filter gain + post filter overdrive), and notice the obvious lack of an LCD screen which means likely no patch memory (woohoo for me!).

Apparently the panel isn't even finished yet. I'm really interested based on what I see here.

Apart from the distortion effects, it sounds quite vintage to my ears, moreso than the LP or Voyager.

agreed. sounds like it belongs more to the taurus/minitaur pedigree...raw and big in low frequencies

Agreed. It sounds a lot better than a LP or Voyager just from that video.

Keep in mind who they had making the patches!

At last!!! A (hopefully) affordable new Little Phatty with a noise gen, improved filter, VCOs and probably an extra VCO or LFO...I'm really excited!!!

I like the spartan, minimalist, nuts-and-bolts look to the thing. Very cool.

watching now...and shit. looks like i'll be saving up for my first moog soon

i love the moog sound buy i don't want something that is limited to the bass range (miniatur), i find the lp interface limiting, and the voyager is lovely but out of my price range.

if this has basic midi in (even if it doesn't) and is priced decently, I will definitely be sold. i crave moog.

but multidrive is obviously taking...*ahem*...."inspiration"....from the brute factor lol

What would be really cool would be if they put the filter cutoff and resonance on the same multi mode knob again.

That would be brilliant

I think it sounds better though...I mean, it doesn't produce a nasty overdrive result like the Brute Factor...Multidrive makes it sound more vintage, by giving more energy in the high frequencies and retaining a smooth bass without sounding like an amplified "metallic bucket". It's raw and somehow smooth...

after listening to the video, I 100% agree that it sounds much much better. I hardly ever use the brute factor on my brute, unless it is 10-25% dialed in. I much prefer running phones -> aux in.

"raw and somehow smooth" is a perfect description.

i just think it's pretty clear they're implementing that feature as a direct response to the minibrute, which makes me hope the instrument as a whole will be an afforable analog joy

Looks and sounds pretty good. Glad they've added a noise source, such corner cutting to leave that off the Phatty and Minitaur. Being a modern Moog, I bet it will have some stupid gotchas such as limited osc range.

If they make a rack it will be stiff competition for the Micromac.

Moog's website says

Making its official debut at NAMM 2013, the first 24 of these new instruments are being handcrafted at the Moog Factory this week. Until you get a chance to see it in its final form at NAMM 2013, please enjoy this video. Love, your friends at Moog.

so could that mean that the rest are going to be mass produced in Asia to keep the price down to Minibrute or Mopho levels?

Looks interesting, but as suggested, I wonder if this is a Minitaur keyboard type synth. (perhaps with all knobs per function). Didn't hear any lead sounds, but that just might have been the guys preference.

The side socket cluster is in a similar position to the LP, so I guess the finished thing will resemble a smaller form factor LP (2 octave).

All will be revealed I guess ...

well... all we heard was bass- so i guess we'll see what that means; but i have to admit, it sounds pretty good esp. when the subosc kicks in.

Awesome. A knobby 2 osc synth with a keyboard would be cool.

Fingers crossed for at least 32 keys for the final model

And full range VCOs.

brute factor is fancy name for filter feedback overload. Multidrive seems to be (based on sound and some subtle clues in video) different thing. When Herb went on discussing m'drive for a few seconds graph appeared in top right corner. It seems that m'drive works like this: from full CCW up to mid position of multidrive control, pre filter gain is increased, thus overdriving the filter, and from mid position to full CW, post filter gain is increased (pre filter is left at same level) thus overloading VCA. Not exactly something profoundly new but very nice way to control both VCF and VCA overdrive with single pot.

BTW, I like the sound of this thing more than Minitaur and much more than LPs/Vgers. Clean but not cold, and very full sounding.
And, my guess is that this is not Minibrute competitor, I'll bet it will be in +$1000 range (if they put out $600/$700 twin VCO synth with one knob per parameter UI it would make Minitaur and LP range pointless)

I heard the Sub OSC before he mentioned it. Every analog synth should have a good Sub OSC in my opinion.

Noise generator too

Either way it sounds great. I like the sound of the square wave a lot more than on the Phatty. Perhaps I should sell my Phatty before this thing comes out... Naw, this synth will be priced at $1700+, it has too many knobs to be an entry level Moog.
