Had a new Multimoog, the 2 oscillator version of the Micro. Comments/observations: -Disagree with many of the above comments - excellent, professional sounds, but NOT classic Moog sounds heard with most of the rest of the line from a Mini, Prodigy, Source or Memorymoog, which all have similarly classic Moog warmth, fatness and distortion. Micro/Multi have instead a somewhat colder, cleaner, cutting Pro-One sound - excellent, but different, ie Steve Winwood Multimoog solos -Multimoog's strenth is expressivity, particularly live, given the ability to use aftertouch - unusual for a synth of this time..

I bought a Micromoog about 4 months ago. Last month I bought a second one and I am totally spacing out now. Setting one machine to S/H Auto and connecting the trigger pulse to the other can be good for some very entrancing sounds. Just one Micromoog by itself is really worth some investment anyway. Just turning the knobs can keep one entertained for hours, no particular talent required. But then there are always people who think that one has a serious problem...

I had one of these for a few years. As a bass synth, a friend of mine (who owns a minimoog) says he prefers the micrommog for bass, as the mini's ocillator drift cause phasing in the sound. And that definately isn't a good thing in bass. Can sound quite phat, but that phat moog bass sound can be hard to find (when you do- write all the knob/switch positions down!) It definatly had a real moog sound. It could sound like a mini at times, and a micromoog on others. It has a great sound though! The sub occilator fattens up the bass. Putting a lead from one of this synth's outputs (it has 2) into the filter in does'nt cause ant big differance to the sound. It does make it sound a little phatter, though (which is great!) It has a some switchable knobs in the bottom left hand corner which can do a number of things from modulating occilators OR filters, or both together, and a number of other powerful things. That is what makes it quite modular in its flexibilty. When I bought it, it was just because I could'nt afford a minimoog.

By the time I sold it, I appreciated it for what it was, a real classic in its own right, and used by such legendary acts as kraftwerk for the bassline on "the model". I, like kraftwerk had a Roland System 100 modular and still found a place for the micromoog, which is definately smooth, phat and sophisticated bass monster. It can make some extremely bright sounds too, with extraordinary clarity in the high frequency range- a feature of moogs going back to the 60's and the moog modulars. This deserves a place alongside the mini as the best 2 synths made by moog. I think the finish is a bit tacky though, and cheap, but in the dark onstage noones gonna notice!

P.S: I sold it because I did'nt need that "moog" sound for my kind of music anymore. But I still love the memories..... :)

This is one excellent synth. But you really have to work on the sounds. It can in fact be run as a three oscillator synth by using the doubling on the main oscillator and using the filter in tone mode. To me it's kind of spooky sounding. The sound reminds me more of a modular than a minimoog. I prefer the micro to the mini purely because it stays in tune. (a useful characteristic in any synth). The asking price is worth it for the filter section alone as a standalone external filter. Try patching the output of the keyboard back into itself ie. the audio input or the filter input for some real moog craziness.

With the filter mod, it rips. filter fm by osc alone is worth its price. it can do aggro bass that rolands cannot. i pair mine with a juno 106 and sh-2.. its the best combo ..
