That’s a lot of synth for the money.

Guess the D reissue really was overpriced

899 seems really good price for a Moog synth... is there something I'm missing? Also, the lighter colors reminded me of the old Radio Shack Moog.

My thought exactly.

The color scheme makes it look fun. With an onboard arpeggiator and sequencer it should be fun to use. I like that it has 2 VCOs, hard sync, patchable HPF, and a spring reverb.

Love it! Have come so close to purchasing a Realistic Concertmate MG-1 a number of times, often for about the same amount in minty-mint condition. Extra features and semi-mod format make this an instabuy for me. I think. Not sure where it will fit when I already have the Sub37, but it's so darned cute. Hope it is made available wider so that I can think about it harder. Don't want to get my hopes up.

Clearly not dark and angry enough.....

Is Moog now going to take as much crap for bright colors as Roland has?

looks like it's all plastic, no? at 899 it's cheaper than the radio shack one was in 81

This gets my vote as the ugliest synth of all time.

I love the MG-1 so much. The tuning of mine would depend on how close your hand was to it. You could change the beat frequencies that way. It was like an accidental Theremin.

I'm not sure of the Grandmother colors. Otherwise, I am SO ON BOARD. A normalized semi-modular is my ideal monosynth.

I have to say this doesn't appeal to me either in the looks department. I like Moog gear (I have NO plans of selling my Voyager EB) and it will probably sound decent but it is an eyesore to me with that colour scheme!
Price is reasonable though.

Synths I'd much rather have, that are the same price as this, are the Dreadbox/Polyend Medusa and the (white) Hypersynth Xenophone.

A synth I'd much rather have, that is half the price of this, is the MiniBrute 2S.

A synth that I'd rather have, that is less than half the price of this, is the Behringer Neutron.

I'd say we're a limited number of months away now from individual Moog Eurorack modules...

Don't like the colours myself but fair play to the Moogs- I expected this to be another 1 osc semi, but it's 2. Good on them!!

It has MIDI Out & Thru, so you could hook up the Yamaha FM module of your choice, control it via the keyboard, and send it through the external input.

The size is probably pretty close to the Moog Rogue, so a 104 HP skiff would fit behind the Grandmother nicely.

Apparently built on Model 15 circuits, with an arp/sequencer and spring reverb. I'm so sold.

The look is growing on me the more I see it, after a fairly unpromising start. Interesting - I had been half thinking about getting a subtractive semi-modular to partner up with my 0-Coast. For people with more modular this will probably make a lot of sense.
