I like the satellite a lot. No complaints. I never expected it to sound like a mini-moog, emulate an orchestra, or bring me coffee. It can pack a delightful punch with a little compression and distortion.

I owned a Moog Satellite in the '70s as a teenager and had a lot of fun gigging with it. Used it along with a Whitehall combo organ. It was great for bass and also had very good lead sounds. I understand the above criticisms about the thinness of sound... a Mini-moog it is not. However, it is a lot lighter, easier to move, and less expensive. I'm looking for one if anyone knows of one for sale.

The Moog Satellite is terrible....simply terrible. I cannot state that strongly enough. I have owned literally over 100 different keyboards since the early 1980's (yes, I am a collector AND player), and this was in the bottom 2 or 3...easily! Thin, weak sounds...when it worked at all! I had it repaired by a real synth tech pro, and as soon as I got it home it broke again. Actually, it's not even a real Moog....these were built by the Thomas Organ Company in Chicago, using licensing from Moog. STAY AWAY from this one! Trust me, you will not get a Moog sound out of this one! Most likely, though, you won't even find one that works anymore, so it's probably not even worth mentioning.

Dreadful crap that fails to come close to classic moog sounds. This is the worst synth I can think of. They cost a wedge because of the name when they are really only a collector's piece. These are for organists rather than synthesists. People see moog and think minimoog. They're wrong.

I owned a Moog Satellite back ion 1975 and used it quite effectively in a cover group to do a bass guitar while I used my other hand to play other keyboard leads. I had it ripped off from my apartment back on 1985 and would gladly buy another if anyone has one for sale out there!

It's an antique fer sure, but I'd sonner buy a used one than dole out $$$ for a Kurtzweil when I only need a few genuine "Moog" sounds.
