Welp, I think I've just found my next synth. :fp:

Those were good videos, and the thing just sounds gorgeous. There's a richness there that a lot of other 2 oscillator synths don't have, though I always feel like 3 is better for a mono synth because you can tune in chords.

I'm holding out for the upcoming Behringer oberheim clone, since the OB sound is the one I always come back to, but if I ever get bit by the modular bug this dude will be where I start.

Man, those oscillators sound so damn good. :?

At least they've stopped calling new things Phat, for the most part anyhow...

I like it! I think that with the integrated keyboard and nice spread out layout, this is much more interesting than the Mother-32. I love the looks, but the sound is like "Sci-Fi: The Instrument" :D :D

Sounds great, price point is great, dumb name though.

My dilemma is that I have all the functionality of the GrandMother spread out over three other analog monos, two of which are modules. Is it worth it to consolidate at least two of these into one GrandMother? I've been waiting for years for Moog to make this particular synth: two oscillators, sample & hold, oscillator sync, MIDI, noise generator, external filter access, VCA bypass, and sub $1000. My first good synthesizer was a Realistic/Moog MG-1 and I loved the format and aesthetic of that thing, but it had design flaws that kept it from being reliable. The new Moog really ticks off a lot of boxes for me. But I'm moving across the country later this year and could really use to not spend money and I've already got stuff that does what the Moog does, etc. It's why I didn't jump out and preorder. It is likely I will eventually get one.

What about that Behringer Neutron, anyone have thoughts on that one? It sounds pretty cool from the demos I've heard.

Can't speak for the Neutron. But the Model D is seriously amazing. I'm really loving it. :-*

I think it’s dumb that they’re only making 500 of the grandmother.

There will be 500 for Moogfest, but after that a regular release, so no worries.

I'm happy to hear that. I couldn't find any limited run of 500 info anywhere and was starting to feels slight pangs of Fear Of Missing Out. :o

Will the limited and regular look the same, or is the Moogfest one a special color scheme or something like that?

The 500 units for Moogfest are kind of a pre-release. I guess you will have to wait a few weeks for the regular batch but it will be exactly the same synth if I understood it correctly. I was into buying a Sub Phatty and the Grandmother distracted my plans pretty hard so I read almost every bit in the internet about it... :fp:
