Moog One

Moog’s flagship polyphonic – 16 and 8 voice models

$7999.00 / $5999.00

This is Moog’s first poly released in over 30 years. I guess there’s this tendency among some to bash what you can’t afford but this premium pricing comes as no surprise to me and seems market justified as I blogged about in OMG!!! Can you believe a 16 voice Moog One is $3000 more than a $4995 Monophonic Moog Voyager XL?

Hey I feel ya everyone, I can’t afford it either, but you have to admit, this is an analog beast. Personally, I think it would be a mistake to get the 8 voice model. If you can get through $6k purchase pain, you can get through $8k purchase pain. With layers and keyboard splits, among other configurations, 8 voices are going to run out fast. It’s different in a hybrid system like the Waldorf Quantum, where each oscillator can be a different group of oscillators, but in this pure analog system, you need those voices.

Thanks!
