I agree it's not scientific, and yet that advice rings true for so many things.... certainly in this case.

It is not a simple synth, and it makes a diversity of sound which blows away pretty much any other cheap vintage 70s monosynth (yes, even some with two oscs). It is a fantastic synth, and there is more to it than just it's admittedly gorgeous big warm fat (which can get really distorted) tone.
And anyone who disagrees should check out your YouTube video. That's the primary reason I got interested in this one for sale!
But yeah, since this Micro has issues I should pass. The LP is an opportunity buy & doesn't seem to have a downside. I will be on the lookout for another Micromoog though...
Thanks for posting!
