Moog Micromoog

How cute! It's a tiny Moog. But don't underestimate it. Sure, it's just a single-oscillator mono-synth, designed as a budget performance Moog. But it's an inexpensive alternative to the Minimoog. In fact, it is often used as just a stand-alone filter processor since it has a filter that is virtually identical to the one found in the Minimoog, and it accepts external sounds for processing through itself (all at a fraction of the price for a Mini)! It also employs a ribbon controller (which was a cool new feature) for pitch bending. Notice that there are still plenty of knobs to give you access to the shape of your sounds! Unfortunately the construction feels kind of cheap.

The Micromoog has been used by Apollo 440, Kraftwerk, Richard Barbieri, Chik Corea, Herbie Hancock, Jimmy Edgar, and Add N To (X).

I know someone has already mentioned that Larry Fast (Synergy) has used the MicroMoog, but I just wanted to let people know (who didn't already) how it was used on at least one of his albums. The Micro features prominently on the Synergy album "Cords", played on guitar through a primitive pitch-to-voltage converter by Pete Sobel. You can see the pictures of the multiple wires coming out of Sobel's guitar and the Micro on Larry Fast's site.
