i bought my rouge back in 1987 for 125.00 to this day it still does stuff that i didn,t know it could do! i agree with the other reviewers it is highly underrated. great bass sounds and even some sounds that emerson did on pictures at an exibition!they are getting hard to find so if there is one around, GET IT!!!

The Rogue was my first forey into the keyboard realm. I think it is a great synth to learn the basics of analog synthesis. I had spent weeks learning all of the ins and outs of this thing and fell in love with the whole analog synth medium. It is great for Bass. IMHO I think it has a very smooth yet dirty sound. Real Beefy. I would not sell it for anything.

This little synth is horribly underrated. It's essentially a MG-1 with Pitch and Modulation wheels, but past its humble appearance lies the quality of sound we expect from a Moog.

Originally this little guy was manufactured by Moog to be the first synth under 500 bucks and in order to do this they had to cut a few corners, lose a few bells and whistles, but the Moog circuitry is still there. The proof is in the pudding. Do to it's simplicity of design you this is one of the easier synths to work with. A good five minutes of exploration and the VOILA! Monosynth heaven. Characteristic great Moog basses, leads, and whacky synth noises, I think one aspect of this little buggers prowes that has been sadly overlooked is it's uncanny ability to emulate 808's and 909's. I don't know why my friends go out and spend a thousand bucks on a trendy (but not necessarily good) 808 or 909. Whenever I've put the Rogue to the test against them, the Rogue pulls it off nicely. Sure, you need to know how to get the type of sound you need out of it, but the basses and snares I've made on this little synth I paid 300 bones for rock the house every bit as hard as a thousand dollar Roland box.

I love my Rogue, it's little, it's phat, and it's easy as hell to use. Grab one of these guys and a Juno-106 and you're well on your way to Trance a la Underworld/Hardfloor.

way, way underrated synth. perfect for booty-shaking electro-lead lines, and bowel-moving bass. put it through some effects (esp. chorus) and watch it blow up the spot.

Love the fatness of its distorted filter, love its quirks and squelch. Great little synth. Strangely enough, the infamous Moog tuning problems were absent on this (as far as I remember). Keyboard sucks though. Also, the non-spring loaded pitch-wheel is a pain.

Anyhow, bought it for about $75 (about eight years ago), sold it again for lack of cash. What an idiot I am. As of now (2000), I think paying $150 for it would be a good deal.
