Just to provide an alternate viewpoint... my Moog One is solid. Does it have some software niggles that need to be ironed out... yes (and Moog already released a pretty substantial update that addressed quite a few issues).  But in the same breath, is it a complete and functional instrument unlike anything else on the market... hell yes. It has quickly become one of my favorites, and at the risk of sounding cliché, it is definitely greater than the sum of its parts.


Maybe this isn’t really an “alternate viewpoint”... I want and expect the software to be perfected (and honestly, our beloved Sequential does this too), but my experience with the Moog One is positive. No regrets on this purchase at all.

That’s good to hear :)

Hi Shaw, may I ask, did you purchase the 8 or 16 voice and are you pleased with the choice? Thanks

16v and purchased from Sweetwater which gave me peace of mind because Sweetwater will let you return your purchase for any reason... i.e. “I don’t like the smell”.  So I had literally zero risk.


As for pleased with it? Absolutely.  I don’t think I would be happy with the 8v version because I have grown to love making patches that utilize 2 synth timbres with slight variations panned left and right... it gets really thick real fast, but with the 8v version, you’d essentially have a 4 voice synth.  And consider the price difference between the 8v and 16v versions. Less than 2000 for 8 voices of Moog monstrosity!!! (I say “less than 2000” because I’m factoring in the inevitable discount you’ll negotiate for).

The Moog One appeals to me because of the immense scale and depth of the thing but then all the demonstrations and reviews I've seen, I've preferred the sound of the Matriarch to what I've heard them playing on the One. The problem for me though is that I don't really want a synth that doesn't have presets so the Matriarch is not something I'd want to spend that much money on.

Can the Moog One sound like the Matriarch I wonder? If so then I'd better start saving up the £s !
