One company wants to make a model D for less than $500.00, another company wants to take $500.00 off ... seems $500.00 is the magic number ... Smile

Purely a luxury item for me so as much as I would like it I will never have it.

I have to agree... there's much more out there that I would be happier with (and less costly). But at the moment there's nothing that I'm being tempted by - Well... maybe the Rev2, but that's also out of my price range.

I'm willing to buy a raffle ticket every year from the Moog Foundation. The money's for a good cause, and it's possible, although highly unlikely, that I'll end up with one.

But buy one outright? I think not.

No patch memory, and oscillators that go out of tune? I'll pass.

For $3000 you could get quite a few analogs, including Moogs, and still have change left over.

Yes, but you won't have the sound. You can buy cheap VSOs (Violin Shaped Objects) but they're not going to play like a 40,000 Cremonese fiddle.

I'll agree that there's much of a muchness out there in the synth world. There are only a few that stand out on their own. The Mini is one of them...

And that makes it uniquely desirable.

In a way it makes me feel happy I have managed to keep my original Mini-Moog. Cool

I agree that there is something special about *that* Moog sound, but if you have a Minitaur or Slim Phatty or Sub 37, that has to be close enough to a Mini-Moog, yes?

The hefty price is not for a functional or otherwise practical difference in obtaining *that* sound. It's purely a nostalgic or collector badge of honor that you're paying for. That works for some, and that's probably enough for Moog.

Nope. Way too many differences internally. All those that you listed are their own synths with their own voice that is different from the Minimoog's.

When it came out, people hailed the Fairlight as a perfect recreation of sounds. Is that "close enough?"

They were thrilled at the M1 piano. Would you be satisfied with that today as "close enough?"

I can continue all through history, especially in the area of Hammond sounds being "close enough," but people still keep trying to get sounds closer to the original.

Same with the Mini. No, it's NOT "close enough." There's no sizzle, no life, no... something that the Mini has. Even back in the day, I had an Arp 2600, but I still wanted the Mini. Aside from the sound, there's an organic relationship to it- you just WANT to tweak knobs to get just a little bit more out of it while playing...

And it always delivered.

I have a Minitaur and love it, just wish it covered a few more octaves. I will at some point have a sub 37 and that hopefully will cure my Moog lust. I would love some of the moogerfoogers. I keep eyeing the cluster flux but damn it is expensive. I would love that model D but like was already said it is expensive and I could easily get the other Moog items I want for a similar cost. Hell i would even like the mother 32. I would take a combination of all the above instead of the model d anyday purely a cost to what get get for that cast consideration. But the little I have heard of the Model D it sure does sound good not better just different then the others above.

I have a Voyager but would still like or even prefer a real Mini. My friend's vintage D rips like nothing else I've ever heard.

Will definitely be interesting to hear Behringer Model D sound quality, especially if those analog circuits recreate those raspy oscillators close enough. Hopefully they will have complete MIDI functionality, FX, and patch memory.
