Jean Jacques Perrey and Luke Vibert's Moog Acid is good, they use real moogs, alongside the Arturia Moog modular.

Studio Electronics CODE using internal analog Moog 24db filter. All sounds including beat all analog.

I dont know what your looking at an am not trying to preach but if you were in the market for analog you cannot go wrong with Studio Electronics. I own a original Mini Moog and a Moog source. I got a Voyager when they first came out and dumped it for a Mono CODE. Never looked back. Got all analog Moog, Oberheim, Arp 2600 and 303 filters within it. You can do everything you can do in voyager sound wise plus obviously a lot more because of switchable filter types given a broader palette of tone possibilities.

Another monster analog synth from studio electronics is their ATCxi Quad. For the money, it simply cannot be beat. Has pure analog Moog 24db, Oberheim 12db, Arp 2600 and 303 filters within it. Besides being a fat screaming analog synth, it also has a dedicated input to filter outside sources. So with that input not only do you get a Moogerfooger filter but the equivalent of a Oberfooger, Arpfooger & Roland303fooger. Also has a separate ring mod input for even more possibilities & chaos. For actual dollars spent to analog possibilities, this is the best synth out there imo.

I've never understood the 'm oh g' crap, even though that's how the dude pronounced his name that means nothing! NOTHING! it's 'moo g'
Another asshole here. Pleased to meet you.

Damn you youtube and your videos indirectly correcting us on pronunciations we've been making for years. Fuck em, I say.

That patent ran out years ago. Other manufacturers have been using Dr Moog's ladder filter for quite some time. I think the Pulse was one of the first to do it legally. Plenty of the modular guys now have a version of it too.

Early Rolands like the SH3 and SH2000s also have it in, as well as a couple of the Teisco monophonics.

Actually, the Voyager does have a bandpass and a high pass mode. It has two filters, one low pass, and one low or high pass. When the low pass filter and high pass filter is selected together you get a nice band pass with controllable bandwidth.

Ok, I know you said hardware only, but I just wanted to take this opportunity to post one of the coolest demo tunes I've heard that really shows off some nice emulated mood sounds. I just love the fuzzy deep tones in this, especially towards the end:

Thanks, I wasn't sure about that. :)

I was just about to say that moogs suck and there are far better Analogues out there when i realised that the main line and the bass of the track that i have been working on and I playing back while typing on here are both from a moog

:)

As it goes the G MEdia is pretty good, but certain patches are a bit of a CPU killer on the Mac, their support etc are just blatantly ignoring that as well. .

The Arturia stuff is good as well. Most people seem to be in agreement that the Moog sound is very well nailed in analogue, YRMV tho. .
I slipped into a daze, whilst I was there I heard the most startling music, it was at once familiar and alien, reassuring and unsettling.

real moogs sound a bit deeper than this.

however you can emulate that deepness with better patch layering etc...

What do you think about the Arturia ones? I think they sound amazing personally (the mini and the modular both). Warmer than the minimonsta. However minimonsta has more punch to it. They're like the two sides of the moogs. I think if the snappyness of minimonsta was somehow merged with the warmth and fuzziness of the minimoog V, that would be the ultimate emulation.

Everything You Always Wanted to Hear on the Moog

Most peeps will hate this but I think Espana is fantastic.

I have, somewhere, an mp3 of 'Little Spanish Flea' done on Moog which is quite possibly the Greatest Thing Ever.

I sold my MS20 to buy a Voyager.. never looked back.. well maybe once cause the MS20 filter is totally unique..

however.. the MS20' sonic palette is quite limited.. thats why I went Moog..
