Hello everyone. First time poster, long time reader in these forums. I am so greatful for the service that VSE provides.
I have a bit of a quandary on my hands that perhaps someone could help me with. Of my three principal machines, only one is an analog monosynth, and I am looking to add another. Currently, I own a Korg MS-20 mini. I would like to add a Moog to my arsenal, but am torn between buying a used LP or a new Sub Phatty. My concern stems from the following reasons:
1. Although the Sub Phatty's knobs and vintage design certainly make it attractive, its repuatation as Moog's "Gritty" offering makes me worry about the possibility of overlap between the MS-20 (imho the king of biting, gritty sounds) and the sub.
2. I am after that buttery Moog sound. Is this possible with the sub, or should this desire steer me to the LP?
Do y'all think that this is a valid concern? Price is not really as issue since a used LP and a New Sub are both going for roughly the same price (around $950 for a lightly used LP, a grand for a new Sub.)
Finally, given my interest in sound design, do you think that this should sway my decision, and if so, how?
Thanks to everyone in advance for your help. I look forward to contributing to this great community of synth lovers.
