As with everything you need skill, patience and creativity to use the Mini`s potential. I find it scaring what one user said - that a deamon lives inside that thing. Maybe nearer the truth than most people expect... You need a lot of moral and will power to be able to deal with all the electronics on the market nowadays. Otherwise you get possesed by it. If anyone want to share experiences of addiction to electronic gear (which can often be nearly as painful as "real" addiction, then please contact me). I have had two Minis - and it is true, it can be a great tool if YOU stay in control and put YOUR creativity and human touch into it - or it can leave you drained and empty, if you imagine that the music should be coming from this box. I found some very unusual sounds in my MINIs, half by luck, half through my programming skills.

A good selection of interesting sounds are possible from this synthesiser. However, I'm not sure that it is as devastating as some people have suggested here. Introduce some modulation and it thins out dramatically. The tuning is awful and very annoying when you realise it has died during a mix and you have to start playing again! It seems like brain washing has set in. A reviewer has said that you should lock your moog away and rarely play it. What is the point of owning one if you must do that? As for 5 marks. My Triton is worth that as is my k2500. Not a minimoog. no way.

Anyone who gives this synth a rating of less than 5 either doesn't own one, or doesn't know how to use it.

The mini is super, super cool. It's limitations, the tuning, the monophonic keyboard, key contacts, make it the most charming synthesizer ever made. It has a mind of it's own, and I suspect that somewhere in there is a daemon who'd rather possess a mini than live in a human.

I paid 1,200 for mine, and have had it serviced once. I paid too much for it, sure. Am I sorry, no way. Will I ever sell it, never. It's just too damn cool.

This is a synth that you won't get any professional use out of. You should expect to keep it locked up in your room, and occasionally use it for recording. If you want to lug something around, get a Cat or a Pro One, or a Micromoog, and leave this one for someone who will love it.

I've owned one for two years and everytime I turn it on it surprises me. Do yourself a favor and get one. But take care of it.

Ahah, that's a good one : how can you sound "original" with an over used mini moog?! :o))) ANyway, the minimoog is a great choice if you're dying for phat basses. That's it really. But at today's prices, it's a steal. Great for its bass sound and analog filters. Now if these features will be enough for you to pay the bill...

I used one back in the mid 70's through the early 80's. It had a great fat sound, but had to be constantly retuned. If I were still playing, I'd want one just because you can tell a Mini Moog by it's sound. Was it a pain in the ass, yes. Was it worth the pain? Definately. Is it worth $1500 and up? Maybe in the 70's.
