Yes. Tomorrow. (But you'll probably regret it later.)

Without even thinking... module versus full instrument, with endless potential as you've stated.

Depends, if you like moldy fart sounds and want to be stuck in the mid 70s get the moog.

Yes, but wait a year for a sale and you'll probably save $$$$ off the Moog.

If I had to pick between two, for what I do, I’d pick the Moog One. However if I already had the Sunsyn and bonded with it I wouldn’t sell it. Just be patient and try to figure out another way to get the Moog. Even if it takes a while. The Sunsyn could be a future repair disaster from what I’ve heard so there’s that.

Regardless I’d keep the Sunsyn as opposed to selling it to fund another synth. If it’s truly fueled your creativity that is.

If you do, contact me. I already have one, but I wouldn't mind having another. Not that I need 16 voices, but why not if you don't want it.

Just a quick piece of mind, I feel the:

Sunsyn = vintage sounding

Moog One = modern sounding

Not saying modern is bad or anything. The Moog One is a badass. But they sound completely different, VCO against VCO.

Sunsyn was last produced 10 years ago - that's VINTAGE?

TIL - I have vintage socks and underwear.

Total nonsense.
No I'm serious, I think it sounds terrible in the mid-low range. The highs sound generally shrill as well. It sounds almost broken in that over-vintage kind of way.

For god's sake keep the sunsyn, it sounds so much better.

Should I edit my post to say 'vintage in tone'? You're right, that can be taken the wrong way.

Edit: Ok, I just edited my post to steer away from any confusion.

another thing is: a few years ago i might have been sure to get another SUNSYN
without a problem in case i wanted it back again. But now they are so hard to get, all having disappeared in collectors closets...

My Sunsyn has never had any issue like that. That's 18 years strong. It's probably built better than you think, if that's what you think.

Ok fair enough if that’s how it hits your ears. But to say that synth is limited to farty mid-70’s sounds isn’t quite accurate. If that’s the case I would chalk that up to user error.

I have no personal experience. I mentioned that from reading people’s comments on various forums about the Sunsyn. Glad yours still works.

So you should either keep it or keep it in the Gearslutz society and sell it to me.

Sell it if you don’t use it.

Buy the Moog if you will make more music with it.

Keep it and buy the Moog if you can afford to.

I know your statement is tongue and cheek, but the Moog One looks have the features many have dreamt of. Sound aside, all the features it has will be a blast to explore.

agreed it is literally the most advanced synth basically ever (maybe the solaris can out do it?) but if it doesn't sound great when you're doing all these experiments it's a big shrug.

Anyway, to each their own - if you love the sound, then love it, not gonna hate.

I wouldn’t advise it. Yet to be seen if the Moog One can touch the Sunsyn in raw power / weight of sound.

If that’s not your bag then flip it for the Moog.

SunSyn is overhyped old crap, and a maintenance risk. you should rid of it presto.

The Moog One looks interesting and it's what a lot of people have been asking/waiting for.
Like others have said Moog is a trustworthy company with a long history of many wonderful & historic instruments.

From the One demos I have heard its sounds very good & it's also a full synth with effects and all.
The Sunsyn on the other hand is a rack or table top with no effects.

I also think the Moog will be more easily repairable if something goes wrong and it has a warranty backing it.

All that being said I wasn't one of the many waiting on Moog to build a Analog poly (I thought it would never happen)
I think it's great that they finally did & it will fulfill many dreams
but I personally will not sell my Sunsun to buy one.

Keep the Sunsyn.
Just based on the long Moog official video with lots of famous players....
It strongly reminded me of my Memorymoog Plus.
My MM+ had a very signature sound. I ended up not using it a lot because it screamed MM+ and it didn't blend well with the other gear I was using at the time.
Moog One is definitely a superior synth, great sounding and well built.
But I don't hear it being that versatile.
If you want a very warm, thick retro sounding poly synth - like a Memorymoog, Oberheim etc, then Moog One nails it. Personally I would end up with too much money invested in one sound of synth.
