A 4-pin XLR is not mains-rated, so it must be a DC (or low-voltage AC) input connector. Sorry, Elf.

I agree that it's an odd design decision. Especially when they got it right with the Sub(sequent)37.

The pic says "19V DC".

You never know, these might be early pics of a pre-production model... things may change in the actual shipping units, perhaps..?

Guys I think you are overreacting, the 8 voice is “only” 6 grand and I bet Moog will offer an upgrade for a reasonable price, say another 4 grand or so.

So what if you can buy a car for that sort of money.

I will carry on lusting after a Pro X, a more reasonable priced expensive synth I can’t afford at the moment.

Its a monster of a synth, but in these days of austerity and a music industry in ruins financially speaking for the artist, it really is a bespoke product for a bespoke market imo.
Whereas Uli Behringer is making synths that anyone can afford, which is great for young musicians who have only ever been able to press their faces up against the shop window and drool up until now.

I would love to think that you're correct. Alternatively, I would also love to think that Moog will read this and come to their senses.

As I often find myself saying to Moog representatives these days... Bob would not have allowed it.

So ... a totally unbiased opinion then ... surely that rules him straight out of reviewing it?

Alternatively, an extremely well informed opinion, who better to review it?

If you're dreaming of synths you can't afford, surely it makes sense to dream of the most expensive available. Why waste time on anything cheaper?

Thanks for that link Dan - I was somewhat underwhelmed when the various dignitaries had a video noodle on it (they made it sound like a glorified organ in many respects, rather than a fully-featured polysynth).

However, I can now far more appreciate the subtleties of the waveform and modulation options, and it's really growing on me 8-)

Yes, it looks like a real beast -- an I love the OLED displays for real time waveform displays and envelope generator shapes. I imagine it will take a long time to get to grips with all the possibilities. Not sure they'll sell that many, though, at the price. There's a lot of very good alternatives for a lot less.

I suspect also after Gordon's most positive review of the Behringer Model D in this month's SOS that this new Polymoog will seem even more expensive :(

Dreaming is different to Lusting :)

Pretty sure I will never get the Moog so I could dream about it I guess, I would rather spend the money on a Pro X and C15 though.
