    WITH OVER 25 YEARS EXSPRINCE

    I think he calculated 25 years of inflation with that, too.

      doesn't matter about the price, they're a waste of time.

              He probably thinks they're worth more than the Jupiter-8.

              Which brings up a good question, which synth *is* worth more? JP-8 or MM?

                The MM is the phattest synth I have ever played, though I have never played a Model D or a JP8 so I am not sure how it compares. From what I've heard I think I'd take a MM over any other synth

                  I think it was a jab at the OP.

                    Why didn't he just jump onto one of the other 9 synths on stage?

                      Soundxplorer had it right -- just a jab at another thread.

                      In practice, when I had my MemoryMoog (LAMMed too) I rarely used it. It was big and fat and limited (from a sonic palette view). I know I'll get a lot of crap from MM lovers for that, but the fact is, why equip a machine with 18 oscillators if it's more versatile with most of them turned off?

                      If you want/need a big blast of raw analog, the MemoryMoog is your go-to machine. For everything else, I had machines that created what I needed better faster and more seamlessly.

                      Yes, you can create a delicate string sound, or a solo flute type patch, but why unless it's your only synth.

                      The bottom line is that the idea of owning a MM was better than the reality of actually having it.

                        That was my experience too. The MM definitely did have a limited sonic palette compared to a lot of other synths. I got bored with it quickly.

                            Hi !

                            I am very much interested in your (Memorymoog Plus - Vintage - $5121) and wish to purchase said item in great trust immediately.

                            I am prepared to pay the asking price, in addition to the extra amount of $1500.00 dollars US for your trouble. I ask only that you accept a Money Order drawn on the bank of butt****************, which you will deposit into your account while sending to me the funds, less the price for your item and resonable expenses for you time.

                              ("Where the hell did he pull this price out of?")

                              I know it may sound ridiculous, but I actually sold my MM+ a few years ago on eBay for $3,800, to a techno guy in Europe. So this seller's price is pretty darned steep, but there are folks out there who just must have this board.

                              It brings up the question -- what's a fair market price for something increasingly rare, when you've got to have a particular sound and can't get it with modern gear? In that vein, I wonder what I'd pay for a mint Matrix-12. More than I should, probably.
