I stand corrected. Not a large bank, but it could be enough to get you by I guess.
The images confused many people ;-)
Seems a perfect move by Moog, it fits into their range well.
Seems alot of people like it too...

It sure is a purty synth. But $1100? you get 4 times as much in an Analog Four for the same price.

This gets a big "MEH" from me... Another monophonic analog synth from Moog. Next will come the Slim Sub Phatty (or the Sub Slim Phatty?). If it was a full-sized 8-voice poly sub phatty for somewhere between $3k and $4k then I would be much more interested and very possibly inspired enough to sell off some other gear to buy one.

I'm getting very interested in this. My first synth was a Moog Rogue, and I loved it. Had to sell it to "upgrade" to other things. I've been thinking about getting one again, but they are expensive these days for what they are and 30 years old. I can't justify a Minimoog, and considered the Phatty until I realized it didn't have a noise generator! Silly thing to leave out -- so useful. This fixes that shortcoming very nicely and for $500 less. Only downside is 25 keys, but I'd cope.

This is on my buy list for 2013. I want it for the Multipole Lowpass filter and noise generator mainly. There was another feature that you turned on in the sub page to keep the tones of the oscillators in tune as you go further up and down the keyboard, that I'm interested in as well.

I'm a bit surprised at some of the negative comments I'm reading on You Tube. After watching Amos do the Sonicstate demo, I'm pretty sold. Compared to competition, you are paying a bit more for the Moog name and most hopefully, quality but your still getting a great Moog analog synth for $1000.
I think I'm going to go for having the trinity this year - Mopho Keyboard, Sub Phatty, and an MS20 Minii.
