New Moog

The thread on Analogue Heaven is like 85 messages and counting.

I sure would like to have one sometime. This would be a great player's synth, and no doubt you'll see them turn up on stage. Any time I've heard a Moog through a big system it has been amazing. The shape is a little odd -- if the control panel folded down like a Minimoog, it would be more portable, but perhaps less sturdy. You'd have to buy or build a custom road case.

On the whole, I'm more excited by the Kontakt 2.1 update, which adds some effects, and a better-quality pitch interpolater. Kontakt is just so nice to use -- any more, I start every track by loading Kontakt and filling up a few Kontakt instruments with samples.
