Blown away from this Instrument
NIELSIR, 28.02.2020
The sounds are stunning - the delay will take your breath away at points, and the feedback can quickly swallow up your whole room if you let it get away - but I love that.

Once you get your manual well-read (to be there are some complex relationships in the Filter modes which I had to re-read many times) you will be creating sounds fast, experimenting with the seemingly unlimited patch points at ease and enjoying every minute.

Overall I am really happy with the instrument/synth. My only non-positive feedback on the unit is the Global Settings system - it requires shooting in the dark and trusting that you have made no mistakes - this really feels like going back in time to primitive control and not in a good way -I would LOVE if Moog updated this to be controlled via a simple computer program and communicate via the USB - where you could potentially save your settings and load/save/backup different setups/configurations.

But other than that slight inconvenience - Stunning instrument!

Moog is overrated
Kamil Z., 28.04.2020
I had great hopes with this instrument ,but unfortunately it is not your top quality instrument in the sense of its features , Envelopes should have a logarithmic curve but they don't , the result is that you are going from a snappy short attack to a ''wow'' type attack by moving your knob by less than 1mm. It should be calibrated differently. You have a bit of Glide even if the knob is at 0. etc... Overall went through most of what it can do after 3 days, could not find anything else that would surprise me ...
