Review: Moog Little Phatty Stage II
27 October 2011
Excerpt: Moog Music is known for making some freaky instruments. The company started out in 1954, producing a theremin , an instrument you play by moving your hands through thin air, and later became famous for hulking modular synthesizers that were controlled by messy and confounding patch bays.
Pros: An honest-to-Bob analog synth in a stripped-down package. Portable and compact, great for performers. USB features make it feel more at home in modern, software-based situations.
Cons: Simplicity of the design is somewhat limiting. Quality is expensive. Menus on the tiny LCD are tough to decipher, you gotta RTFM. I kind of miss the wood side-pieces.
Excerpt: The Moog brand is arguably the most well-known in the synthesizer world for good reason: the Minimoog D, released in 1971, was among the first affordable, self-contained synthesizers to hit the market.
