I think they do have a badge-tax which I guess could class as over-rated, so the OP is on point really. Fanboys may attack but it's true.

I've owned a few modern Moogs, maybe "modern Moog is over-rated" would be more accurate?

Sub37, Lil' phatty, Voyager... all gone. much prefer my SH-2 and OB-6 (so not just 'old' vs new but whatever is the most musically interesting and musically toned regardless).

I suspect the reissued Model D does sound really funkin great, as it should! But for the price I'd still say it's over-rated.

And the Moog One is just flat out over priced, over-specced and def over-rated and to me sounds horrible.

Finally a voice of reason. Maybe I was a bit harsh with the 'Junk' part but Moog are just so offensive these days. They are lost it seems.

I've never heard a demo of the Moog One that justify's it's price. <snip - can we lose the hate speech now please? Thanks>

Here's a clue, you want that New Moog sound - Buy a Roland analogue and stick cloth in your ears. Voila. Instant 70's muffled fudge. Save yourself thousands.

Do you even make music, incel bro?

(Wanky sounds into your hand don’t count)
You seem to be riding my a$$. Why are you so offended by my critique of Moog? Are you insecure?

Yes I do make music and you probably heard my stuff on the radio. You really think famous people don't come on here?

Not sure about a lot of that but I'll give you something.

I have had a fair few modern moog synths. Mother 32's, Werkstatt, DFAM, Slim Phatty, Minitaur, Grandmother etc.

I have an SH-2 like Tonekontrol and still remember the first week I got it. It absolutely destroyed the Moog synths I had at the time and any Moog I had after that.

The diamond and bargain in the dirt for Moog is the Minitaur. That one can hang with old synths in my opinion.

The new Model D and the big modulars sound incredible, probably not a bad investment in the long term.

Ok. I'll look into the Moog Minitaur. Always respected your opinion on here Moonwhistle, you tell it like it is. No sugar coating.

Spending a fair amount of $$ on artisanal beard products tends to put most of the moog lineup out of my price range, but i remember the minitaur was pretty rad.

So pleased you are happy.

Can you tell me why Moog is worth the money now?

What Moog do you own? And what is great about them?

I have a Moog Grandmother...

I love the big UI... with big quality tactile knobs, plenty of room around them. It is such an inviting workspace. Nobody makes a UI that I like as much as Moog.

The keybed has a good feel and the GM also sounds lovely. It has a vibrant lively sound and with the patch points offers some wide sonic diversity.

I also have the Matriarch on pre-order and I consider it well worth the price for what you get.

Why can't they make music (and commercials) like that anymore! Yes, I was alive when it originally aired.

Oh come on, that would be like saying Santana has sucked since he started pushing PRS's.

Oh, wait

Depeche Mode has sucked ever since Alan Wilder left. He was musically the most gifted. Influenced by Debussy and the likes.

There’s zero question that this was the big inflection point for the band. To try to claim that Moog has something to do with it is just asinine. While more recent Depeche Mode doesn’t have anything like the same level of polish, I wouldn’t say they’re uninteresting. I quite like some of the post-Wilder songs and believe Martin is as gifted a writer as ever, but the material could certainly have benefited from the obsessive attention to detail that a Wilder brings. His own solo content has the opposite problem: incredible production of songs that don’t have a strong foundation.
