  1. Now that another commenter has made me notice the aliasing on the 106 and 2600, I can’t un-notice it.

    I hope CA can find ways to improve that with this Moog, as well as their existing products.

    1. Thanks for pointing this out. I thought it was just me.

      I noticed some very audible artifacts on the free Cherry Audio MG-1, which disappeared when I increased the sample rate to the max. There aren’t many knobs on the MG-1 so it’s not that I was _trying_ to break it, and it was affecting quite a few patches. In the end I had a bit of fun with it, but this made me give up on it. I have no grudges because it’s free!

      I don’t use other soft analog’s so I don’t know if this kind of thing is common (and maybe everyone uses 192k sample rate?) but I don’t have the same problem on my hardware VAs.

  2. I have plenty of Moog-y samples & patches that do the job well enough, but there’s a small hole in my rig that this would fill nicely. One man’s aliasing is another’s added flavor, but I’ll still be mindful of how pesky it is (or isn’t). Thanks for the tip.

    CA has been getting so much right, I feel prone to dismiss a subjective loose thread or two. The original Memorymoog had some cranky issues. As huge as they can sound, Moog polys have never felt like their strong suit. Mono Moogs are the ones to beat, IMO as a long-time user. Since a Moog One wasn’t in my budget anyway, it’ll be nice to have this one in a more stable form.

  3. At laaaaaaast!!!

    As far as i know there is not a single Memorymoog emulation out there.
    Only sample based vsts with irritangly much GB of data.
    I know thats not a bad thing soundwise but i simply dont like “sacrifizing” 300gb on a laptop in order to install 5-6 synths (random number)

    Am hyped for this release especially since Cherry audio keeps prices on logical levels imho

    1. AFAIK there is one other emulation, the Memorymoon. It was created some years ago, using Synthedit (I believe) and is only available as a 32 bit VST. I’m betting the forthcoming VST from Cherry Audio will be a superior offering. For me, it will be an instabuy.

    1. . . . If you can afford it that is. For those of us on tight budgets, getting a polyphonic analog synth is simply out of our financial reach. The only choice we really have is a VA plugin.

  4. ooo ooo ooo …! I hope they do this. One of the dumbest things I ever did was sell my last-generation (full MIDI) Memorymoog. And if I told you how little I sold it for, you guys would probably take up a collection to pay for my admission into a mental health facility. But if CA can do this, it MIGHT help me to sleep at night!

    1. I can’t remember what I paid for a used MM in something like ’83 or ’84, which I got MIDIfied a year later. Sold in ’87 or ’88 for $1300. My MM and Prophet5 were my most valued analogues back then. I’m old. These days, I feed that jones with Arturia V coll, Cherry Audio VSTs, a plethora of Reason RE synths and RE/VST FX. I have a good ear and a willingness to climb a complex learning curve to coax either something I hear in my head or something I’ve never heard before out of the morass of computer code. Not being independently wealthy, I am getting a lot of mileage out of my set of Swiss Army plugins. Hats off to CA for producing high quality yet affordable music software tools.
