i purchased my MultiMoog on ebay some 18 months ago for £750 and had it shipped here to the UK all the way from West Virginia, USA !! It was actually from reading many of the interesting and helpful comments on the particular site which finally helped me to make my final decision. i originally bought my MultiMoog to experiment with BASS sounds, but this week i hooked up a delay-pedal and have created some funky LEAD sounds.

The strength of this model definitely lies in the flexibility and routing (options) of the MODULATION section. It allows for many parameters to be assigned through it. Also, the AFTERTOUCH is quite unique (for its era) and frees up the ribbon-controller or mod-wheel to be used to trigger something else.

i have not (as yet) taken advantage whatsoever of any of the in/out jacks on the rear panel.

Sometimes, when i make a pitch-bend via the ribbon-controller (which is often every other note !!), the pitch sticks on the note i have bent up/down to. So this results in the whole keyboard being (say) a tone higher (as if you had pressed a 'transpose' button) and this malfunction is only deactivated by (quite forcibly) pressing the center of the ribbon-controller until normal pitch is resumed. i am not sure if this is a fault with the ribbon-controller itself (thought it was new 18 months ago) or something internal ??

A couple of note 'stutter' and are temperamental when played triggering AFTERTOUCH (eg. not sounding or stuttering).

The overall PITCH stability can waver slightly but this can be quickly overcome by readjusting the (very easy to quickly operate !!) FINE TUNE dial on the rear panel. Or a permanent solution can be to slightly DETUNE the two oscillators (via. top left '+/-' dial) to produce a fatter tone as well as disguising the tuning fault.

The TONE has a 'reedy' quality to it and i thinks this helps to separate from many of the other models of Moog which i have heard. There is a great solo on 'You Tube' by Tom Schumann (of Spyro Giro) on the track "Shaker Song". Don't know if anyone on here can work out his PATCH SETTINGS as he obtains a really nice sound. i wrote to him twice last year but never got a reply !!

i keep reading that both Chick and Herbie used this synth on recordings but i have never come across such recordings ??

Overall i would give my model 8/10 for its condition, cosmetics, and reliability. It is NOT a MiniMoog and it took me a quite a bit of time to accept this fact !! But its a great little synth in its own right and needs to be accepted and enjoyed purely on its own merits.

Multimoog and the one-oscillator version the Micro are a mixed bag. The most expressive monophonics ever, thanks to aftertouch on the keyboard, which was unheard of at the time, but at the same time the sounds, while overall quite good, don't have the Moog character heard on just about everything else from the Rogue, Prodigy, Source, Mini and Memorymoog. The Multi/Micro have a cleaner, less warm sound, still quite good but not the classic Moog warmth or character. A little more akin to a Prophet in sync mode, and typified by Steve Winwoods's Multimoog solos - tight, concise, slightly reedy sounds vs. the classic Moog fatness. Sounds are quite good, just different.

I have own and played several analog synthesizers in the past, but my favorite by far is the Multimoog. It has a big sound that is easy to manipulate once you get the hang of it. Even a beginner can make great sounds with little effort. The knobs and controls are duarble and they even clean up easily. The only minor disadvantage I can see is that the zip strip is made of cloth and has a tendancy to wear out quickly. - Enjoy
