Warm sounds, bright lights, keyboard very good to play on, what more do you want? Very easy to alter the presets and get some amazine sounds and you can even use the filter to morph your own sounds. The LP is a fun keyboard with a serious side to it and I never have ebough time to play around with it. When I first saw it on the Moog site it was instant love and I have no regrets. I have no hesitation but to recommend it to anyone who wants a genuine Moog as some of the synths with the name are not as good as they are hyped up to be. I would still like a Mini or Voyager but the LP has curbed the urge to spend more money. Love it.

Where are the little Phatty reviews? We need loads of comment, opinion (and some entertaining flames) to help shape our next synth purchases! Or have all and sunder joined the stampede to PC based synths and laptop performances, leaving Sonic State bereft of musicians who use other means....

We're in a gap between the tribute and the stage but I had a good look at the tribute in Turnkey.

As far as you can rate a synth after an hour of fiddling in a shop, I give it a 5 rating. Yes, 5. It does everything it says on the tin. Sounds great, plays wonderfully, great interface and nice looks. I even like the name. Cheers me up.

The LP is often unfairly compared with other synths in a similar price range or cheaper. If you don't want a Moogy sounding synth then fair enough but with the LP you are buying a handmade monosynth with a Moog ladder filter. There are no other analogue synths with a nice keyboard and a lovely creamy ladder filter to give a unique sound in that price bracket. The LP is, in terms of features probably the most minimal synth to be released by a major company in a long time. To me it is also one of the most charming synths to be released for a long time.

I preordered this in April of 2006 and received one of the first to come into the UK in October. It was worth the wait. I love the range of sounds from phatt bass to tinkly chirps. What do you want from a synth? (except maybe polyphony) The presets are mostly good with a handful of rubbish (in my opinion). Playing around with the presets is the way to get the most out of this synth and what I bought it for. It's very easy to change the settings and if you make a mistake it's even easier to get the preset back so you can try again. The manual is clear and simple and covers everything you need to know. The build quality is excellent and the keys a dream to touch. If you can't afford a Voyager or a second hand Minimoog then you can't go wrong with this. I love it, it's what I've dreamed of owning since I saw Keith Emerson at Sheffield City Hall in the 70's.
