Not me... I'm saving (if possible) to get a SUPERNOVA II or a VIRUS INDIGO http://www.musicplayer.com/ubb/biggrin.gif ...

I am in line as well. I switched from cherry to walnut based on the photos. I don't know when you expect to see yours. I was told that Dec or Jan is more realistic as a ship date (s/n #29). I wouldn't be surprised if it gets pushed back even more. I don't really care. I expect to own this synth forever. A few months delay is insignificant in the big scheme of things.

There might be little interest because $2500 (is that the price ?) for a monophonic synth is a lot of money, and as much as I like the Minimoog I'm not sure the strengths of this type of instrument would fit into my music. They do synth bass and lead lines well, but I play a real bass guitar and I can't even tell you the last time I heard a synth solo. When I do play solos or melodies I use imitative trumpet and brass sounds. I'm not dissing the Voyager, maybe I would change my mind if I owned one, but there will never be one in the stores here in San Diego for me to check out. We've never even had an Access Virus here to check it out either. Maybe I can weasle my way into a NAMM show sometime. http://www.musicplayer.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif

 

I used to have a Moog Source in perfect condition but I sold it and never miss it. I've own about 7 synths in my time and it was my least favorite. Different strokes.....

Hey Steve, You must not have ever been in Professional Sound and Music here in San Diego. They carry and generally have Virus in stock. Not right now because Virus hasn't shipped anything in so long, but there's a shipment en route and they should have them soon. They have Waldorf, Novation and other brands that most local music stores don't carry as well. Definitely worth checking out!!

Thanks R. Actually, I've been a customer there for a long time. I haven't been in there when they had a Virus in stock. I did happen to play the Supernova II and Nord 3 there a few weeks ago and I am now considering the Supernova II.

 

I will tell them to give me a call when they get the Virus in....I really want to play it before making a decision.

Hey Dave,

 

I talk to Mike a couple times a week. I'm way too good a customer for my own good http://www.musicplayer.com/ubb/biggrin.gif I'll tell him and Shane you said hi. I know he reads the HC boards because he recognized me there and asked if it was me. I'll ask him if he checks this board out too. He said he keeps a low profile after once posting to defend ProTools from someone who didn't know what they were talking about. I guess he corrected the inaccuracies and got flamed for being a "biased Pro Tools dealer." Oh well, maybe we can get him on here. He has a lot of good knowledge to offer.

Ooops, I almost forgot to post about the topic like I started to. The Minimoog Voyager is listed as $2,995 on the Big Briar site and a $500 deposit is required to hold it. I am a synth and vintage gear collector myself, but I find it hard to justify paying $3k for a synth I will likely be able to acquire for under $2k after it's introduced. The signature of Bob Moog and fancy wood notwithstanding, I'll buy a "stage" model and wait to pick up a "signature" used one when somebody sells it a few years from now. Just my two cents. Roland

There's one synth I feel necessary to get to complete my newly reassembled rig. That's a K2000r.

 

Since last April, I've made a concerted effort to rebuild, and what are now in the rack and on the stand are:

 

Alesis QS7

Yamaha KX 76

Yamaha KX 88

 

Alesis NanoSynth (Thanks again, Dave!)

Kawai K1r

Oberheim DPX-1 (but I might let that go: It ain't blowing my skirt up the way I hoped it would...)

Korg M1r

 

The K2000r is the last thing I "feel" that I need. I guess that I could really live without it, but it truly is a feeling that the rig won't be complete without one.

 

So, I'm bidding for one on eBay right now. If any of you are looking there, and see my name as the high bidder, PLEASE STAY THE HELL AWAY FROM THE ONE I"M BIDDING ON! I AIN'T MADE OF MONEY, YOU KNOW... http://www.musicplayer.com/ubb/biggrin.gifhttp://www.musicplayer.com/ubb/smile.gifhttp://www.musicplayer.com/ubb/biggrin.gifhttp://www.musicplayer.com/ubb/smile.gifhttp://www.musicplayer.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

 

The funniest thing is, I really don't have any time in on the K2k. I'm basing it on the Pink Floyd "Delicate Sound of Thunder" and "PULSE" tours where they used a bunch of them, and I was incredibly impressed with the scope of sounds out of the instrument. That and all y'all's opinions of them. (Oh, Christ! I've been in Georgia too long! I'm saying "y'all!" Hope I don't forget how to say "Fuhgedaboudit...")

 

Well, really, the LAST thing I really need is a set of Mackie SRM 450's. But until I can resolve in my head spending $1600.00 on a pair of speakers, I'll live with headphones for quite a while...

Setup: Korg Kronos 61, Roland XV-88, Korg Triton-Rack, Motif-Rack, Korg N1r, Alesis QSR, Roland M-GS64 Yamaha KX-88, KX76, Roland Super-JX, E-Mu Longboard 61, Kawai K1II, Kawai K4.

No doubt! Mike is one of the most serious and knowledgeable synth gurus that I know. I'd love to have him join the community!

 

Please do let him know that we are only interested in him participating as a synth-head, though. As you know, solicitation of sales on the MPN forums is kinda frowned upon.

Will do. By the way though. Is it verbotten to mention his store or other stores that I have found have great service and pricing if someone is looking for a good deal on a piece of equipment. After over 20 years as a music equipment consumer, I've found that most stores don't have sales staff that know what they're doing and many stores charge high prices but offer weak customer service. Mike's store and one other I've found are exceptions to that and I would like to know whether I can recommend them if someone's looking for best price/service value. Thanks, Roland

Not at all!

Absolutely. I appreciate and encourage that sort of thing. Anyone who feels that they know a place/person that they can recommend is welcome to do so,as long as they themselves don't work there. I just don't like employees of music stores/manufacturers trolling here for business - that's a whole different ball game.

 

... I may be a bit suspicious of anyone who recommends a store/dealer/manufacturer as their first or second post, though... http://www.musicplayer.com/ubb/wink.gif

Remember when the argument for paying higher prices was justified because the after sales support would be worth it, to be able to return to the store and there highly trained staff would help you with all of your questions and operational needs ? Now when I go to stores I know more than the staff, and to get anykind of deal you have to find a better price from a contender before they'll work with you.

I am saving the pennies for a fully-loaded Supernova II. Nothing else out there moves me except this one. Kinda feels like when I bought my D-50....

Yamaha (Motif XS7, Motif 6, TX81Z), Korg (R3, Triton-R), Roland (XP-30, D-50, Juno 6, P-330). Novation A Station, Arturia Analog Experience Factory 32
