As much as I hope that this is true, I’m a bit sceptic. Usualy Moog keeps their new and upcomming products super safe and nobody knows about it. Grandmother had a leak like a day before official anouncement, but other then that, it came out of nowhere. So...how come, they let dealers know about it months before? And I guess that friend who gave you this top secret information will get cruzified. I hope its true...really, but somehow sounds a bit strange a sales guy giving out those infos that easely.

In case its true, I wouldnt really stress about availability. This thing is so expensive, only few will have the possibility to buy it. Its not like GM or Sub37 wich is in reach for many, but still to expensive for other too. So I guess, those who dicide to get this, will have it without problems. Cant imagine it will have preorders like Grandmother.

Oh, it's cooler than that! So glad I can actually spill some details for you now.

It's polyphonic, and comes in 8- and 16-voice versions. (Moog has not only set us up as the earliest dealer with stock (around mid-August), but we'll have an exclusive until they launch with other retailers in September. And they've also promised us a number of low-serial-number units (2-10) on each unit, though this does run an extra $500 (and also gets you a letter from Mike Adams, and a signed photo by the techs who built it). Sounds incredible, and check this out!

• 3 VCOs per voice
• 3 part multitimbral - 3 synths in 1
• Knob per function
• 4 LFOs per synth with easily assignable modulation
• Arp and sequencer (per synth)
• Clock sync
• Assignable CV ins and outs
• Lots of i/o for routing synths and effects
• Eventide reverbs built in
• Unrestricted number of presets

Oscillators
create complex waveforms

Noise
• Dedicated envelope for transient shaping

Filter
• Stave variable filter AND Moog Ladder Filter
• HP, LP, BP or notch
• link filters together for ganged sweeps
• assign sources to SVF ladder or both in the mixer

Envelope
• 3 envelopes (amp, filter, and assignable)
• easily assignable mod matrix

Sequencer and Arp

Effects
• True bypass effects
• effects per synth and a master effects bus
• 2 assignable macro controls - customizable per patch
• Vocoder
Modulation
• Easily repeatable mod mattrix routings
• 4 LFOs - 1 button destination routing
• Fine tune and ccreate complex modulation via transforms
• Easy assign performance controllers
• XY pad for expressive control

Not too shabby, eh? Admittedly, I'm always pretty impressed when Moog comes by, but this was probably the biggest shock I've ever had at seeing their products early under an NDA…and the toughest to keep private until we could talk about them! I figured you'd appreciate knowing about it as much as anyone, since you've been involved in MI retail for so long, and have probably seen most things under the sun to date.

Still not sure when we'll have it up on the website, but we are taking orders, if you're interested. 8-voice version is $5999.00, and the 16-voice version is $7999.00. I've got a little wiggle room for you, but a bit less than usual…they really don't want us deep-discounting these due to anticipated demand, obviously.

Whew…glad I could finally talk about this!

Soooooooooo ..... wiggle room or not its still too rich for my blood, but I'm excited to see photos and hear demos of it when they surface, and am excited for all those out there blessed with the financial means to aquire one.

Save for the third VCO, the 16 voice version sounds a lot like an Andromeda, but for $8000 dollars. If true, that thing better sound REALLY good, because the Andromeda set a very high bar in that regard, and that was 18 years ago and at a much lower price.

On european market the A6 was around 8k when released. They reduced the price drasticly to around 6k after...I guess didnt sold that much. Thats why I’m saying...a Synth for 6-8k is only for a few who can afford. Even if its written Moog on it, wont be a huge seller.

Just saw one for like 3k Euros!

Seems you made the deal of your life back then.

Yawn.... I'll believe it when I see it.

Good feature set for the price though, if it's pure analogue all the way through.

Sounds like a serious test for the analog purist who has been hoping for exactly this. This is one of those moments where I’m glad I don’t find the pure subtractive model as seductive as some obviously do! I’ve already spent a little under $8k on synths this year, so it’s time for me to sit back and watch others enjoy a product aimed squarely at them.

Woah. If indeed true (and I have no familiarity one way or the other with Cloudswimmer, so nothing personal if that sounds more skeptical than intended) I will need to think about selling off some other gear. Yes, sight unseen and sound unheard for now. I could see unloading one of my Moog monos and OB6 to get me a fair amount of the way to the 8 voice. Hopefully upgradable to the 16 down the road. I doubt that it would suck. Some of the details are horribly interesting. Vocoder and Eventide Reverbs built in to a polyphonic Moog with both Ladder and SV filters? Yes please. Polyphonic aftertouch or MPE compatibility would make me sell a kidney.

Are we sure this isn’t just Moog looking at the Behringer Pro One and saying “Pssh, there’s only $200 of Parts in there, I bet we can build this for more.”

"One" as in your one and only chance to buy a new Moog poly, because if this one doesn't sell they're not likely to ever try it again

Wow, looking forward to pictures and demos! I’ve heard some serious rumours that something like this will come so I’m inclined to believe this is actually true!

Well I do trust rsaintjohn so if he chimes in and confirms it.... hmmm....

Question is, would the CV I/O be Eurorack or 5U standard? I'd guess the latter, to work with the Moogerfooger line? OTOH Eurorack standard is what all the current semi-modular stuff uses, so.... all depends on which environment this would be meant to fit into, if a professional one, 5U sounds right. Nothing against Eurorack, but it's comparably delicate.

His job or anyone elses job over there is on the line when breaking an NDA .. its a firing offense. We all knew this was coming .. and that it would be expensive .. so here it is.

So who would have thought? But it turns out the quantum and prophet x were actually affordable now? I thought they were expensive but I was not connected enough with consumer needs I guess...

Wow... just wow. Way out of the range of affordable for the likes of me, but assuming the info is accurate, this thing is going to rock. Memorymoog meets Andromeda.

I wonder how well it will sell at that price. I thought they would aim a bit lower in terms of price and feature set for their first poly... like a more traditional 2 VCOs 6-8 voice poly with lowpass ladder filter (basically the Sub37 voice architecture) for $3-4k. Test the waters before unleashing a high-end flagship that might not sell as well as hoped.

I wonder if the SVF is based on the Oberheim SEM filter.
