The Memorymoog IS special, in a dominating, overpowering kind of way that is beyond the realm of it's peers. Only thing is, it's less musical than a Prophet, Oberheim or other Moogs, so you're gaining greatness in one area at the expense of the other-it's desirability is thus dependant on the mood you're after. The Prophets are tighter, more angular, the Memorymoog brawnier and more raunchy. Probably why Bon Jovi used to tour with a Memorymoog and Voyetra-8-they both have an industrial look and mood that's good for rock and other rawer forms of music like club or hip hop.

Power overload, HUGE. Probably only a Prophet 10 or OBXa come close. An industrial quality to it, similar to a Voyetra-8 in this respect; raw, brutish qualities at the expense of some degree of musicality-everything's imbued with a very powerful, unprocessed character. Thus, perfectly suited for club/rap as heard in seminal early Memorymoog cuts like "Planet Rock".

I have to disagree with those comparing the LAMM to anything on earth. I have the good fortune to own a ton of vintage and new synths, including a LAMM, Prophet 10, Prophet 5, Prophet VS, Andromeda, Super Jupiter, Oberheim Xpander, 4 voice, ARP 2600...

There just isn't an instrument in the lot that has the same characteristic sound that the MM is able to produce. I think a lot of it has to do with Moog's filters. This unit can sound fat or airy or nearly anything in between.

Comparing a synth like this to some of those mentioned is like comparing a Viper to a Cadillac. Sure, they are both cars, but they have very different purposes. You have to compare the LAMM (or any of the other vintage synths) to the flexibility, complexity and simplicity of the sounds and the creation processes. In most marks, the MM is one of the best sounding, easiest to program and most versatile instruments out there.

Better than the original memory but still liable to overheating and dry joints. I dont see this as the world's greatest and I dont think many do. Still its nice to have about if you can stand the power downs and tuning. The fan noise is a pain in the arse..do they all have this. The prices are mad because people really think they are getting a sorted memory. The same rules and pitfalls apply..just a bit softer...for a while. Buy an Andromada or a virus or a Prophet 5. Or a Jupiter.

Prophet 5, Jupiter8, ELKA synthex,CS80, Super JX10? Lots of great synths around which were widely used. The original Memory Moog was almost unusable in practice. This special is much better. However, the MM is still a quirky, though beautiful machine. I think the Jupiter, prophet and Jx have the overall edge...sorry guys! Still give it 5 plus though!
