    這真是要人買不完就是了!Moog Model D 的 reissue,ㄧ個月僅生產非常少的數量,價格居然快四千美金........ Moog 大概是看既然已經有這麼多更新、功能更多的現代版本,但 vintage 版還是非常貴,reissue 就不用客氣了。

    A Brief History Of The Minimoog Part II:



    Asheville, NC, July 20, 2016 — Today, Moog Music announces that they have resumed production of the Minimoog Model D synthesizer after more than 30 years. Introduced in 1970, the Minimoog Model D was the first portable synthesizer and served as the archetype for all electronic keyboards that followed. Conceived as a response to the large-scale modular synthesizers of the 1960’s, the Minimoog’s portability, affordability and accessibility made it the go-to instrument for musicians looking to expand beyond the traditional sounds of the time. Bernie Worrell used the Minimoog to establish Parliament Funkadelic’s futuristic funk sound. Kraftwerk employed the Minimoog on the successful concept album Autobahn, sparking an entirely new genre. Gary Numan replaced his live band’s guitars with Minimoog’s, creating the prototype for industrial music. The classic sound of the Minimoog Model D can be heard on Bob Marley’s Catch A Fire, Michael Jackson’s Thriller and Dr. Dre’s The Chronic; Detailed in the mini-doc series “A Brief History Of The Minimoog”. Moog Music today releases the second installment of the series chronicling the influential artists of the 80’s & 90’s who used the Minimoog Model D to explore new genres and discover the sounds of tomorrow.

    Each Minimoog Model D is lovingly handcrafted at Moog’s employee-owned factory in Asheville, NC. This legendary 3-oscillator monophonic instrument is securely housed in a hand-finished aluminum chassis and locally-sourced Appalachian hard-wood enclosure. To realize the unmistakable sound of the world’s first performance synthesizer, Moog Music preserves the component placement and through-hole design of the original analog circuit boards, employing military-spec precision resistors and custom-reissued transistors to complete the circuit.

    Though no changes have been made to the original sound engine or audio signal path, the Minimoog Model D now includes a series of functional modifications to expand the instrument’s sonic capabilities beyond the factory specifications of a 1970’s production unit. These modifications include a premium Fatar keybed with velocity and after pressure available via top panel CV jacks, a dedicated analog LFO with triangle and square waveshapes, CV outputs for pitch, gate, velocity and after pressure, basic MIDI integration, and a mixer overload modification, which when engaged, allows the Minimoog Model D to conjure thicker and far more overdriven sounds than before.

    The Minimoog Model D is now available for order through authorized Moog dealers world-wide.

    *NOTE: Due to the complexity of the build process coupled with the demand for other Moog instruments, we are only able to produce a small number of Minimoog Model D units per month.

    我才發現 foogers 也停產了!話說ㄧ台鍵盤合成器可以做 13 年也實在很厲害了,就那個價位,大約ㄧ年有ㄧ千多台應該算賣的很好了。

    話說我覺得現代的 Moog 產品音色都偏暗.....不知道新的 reissue 會不會 open 些?

    我懂得不是很多,不過Model D的44鍵配置是屬於少見的嗎?我印象中其他琴的鍵數都是12的倍數+1,然後從C開始.
    而且從F開始也太酷了.不過身為一個稍微有在彈貝斯的人,我會希望最低的是E,雖然在合成器上面轉調是輕而易舉啦

    傳統鍵盤樂器 (這裡廣義包含像木琴 marimba 等) 的最低音通常都是從 C 音依次差三度,所以通常是 C、A、F 和外加ㄧ個 E 音。電子鍵盤也大致是這樣,只是現在不論音域多寬往往全部都從 C 音開始算的比較普遍,例如我買的 Roli 不管尺寸大小都是從 C 開始。

    Dave Smith Instruments 正式發表 OB-6 的桌上版本。美金 $2,299,的確比 Moog 類似產品便宜。

    Dave Smith Instruments LLC today announced that they will begin shipping a desktop module version of their acclaimed OB-6 six-voice analog synthesizer in the early fall. Like the keyboard version, it boasts a sound engine inspired by Oberheim’s original SEM and features an all-analog signal path with discrete VCOs, VCAs, and filters. The knob-per-function front panel offers immediate access to virtually all parameters.

    As Dave Smith explained: “The OB-6 has met with unprecedented approval from across the music industry. In just the four months since its release, it’s been adopted by an extraordinary number of artists and is already appearing in projects across the world.” Added Smith: “We wanted to make the desktop version available as quickly as possible to make it even easier for musicians to take it on the road or into the studio. We made it a priority that the desktop version retain the same powerful sound, and easy-to-use front panel interface as the keyboard version.”

    Smith continued:
    “We’ve also added a poly chain feature so that any two OB-6s can be paired for 12-voice polyphony. That is a monstrously big sound.”
    The essence of OB-6’s vintage sound is its discrete voltage-controlled oscillators (plus sub-oscillator) and discrete, state-variable filter, both based on the classic Oberheim SEM (the core of Tom Oberheim’s acclaimed 4-voice and 8-voice synthesizers). Voltage-controlled amplifiers complete the all-analog signal path. Said Tom Oberheim: “The desktop module sounds every bit as good as the OB-6 keyboard because, on the inside, it’s exactly the same — the same VCOs, VCFs, and VCAs and the same big, in-your-face SEM sound that people have always loved.”

    The module weighs approximately 13 lbs (5.9 kg) and measures 20.75” L x 7.8” W x 4.4” H (52.0 cm x 19.8.cm x 11.2 cm).

    The OB-6 desktop module will be available in the early fall with a projected MAP of $2,299.

    ARP 2600 不是已經有了?我是比較希望這些類比 reissues 風趕快結束,畢竟已經很多選擇了。不論軟體或硬體,合成器應該還有更多可能。
