I picked up a Rogue for $125 last year (that's what it's really worth). I had to make a power cord for it (use the appropriate transformer and a 1/8 inch mono phone jack!!). It makes some awsome noise f/x and bass. This is my first analogue synth; it may not be sophisticated, but you can get a variety of uses out of it, which is worth the (true low) price.

If anyone has any ideas, patches (knob settings etc.), modifications etc. for this little big guy, please drop me a line. I have a few cool patch ideas if you want them.

A simple synth which can be used best for bass and weird fx. Not enough control over the sound for it to make many interesting sounds; but what it does it does good. Definately not a Minimoog, but it *is* an authentic Moog.

As a bass player primarily, I will admit I'm not a keyboard guy or have even taken a single piano lesson, but the Rogue has been a great compliment to my music. I picked mine up for a pretty high price, but it has been a great introduction to synths and makes me want to spring for a boss synth like the MemoryMoog. I can easliy see where it would have its limitations for pro synth guys, but for gangsta rap moog lines, or for sheer sarcasm the Rogue is a perfect little beast. Plus, it's fun to say 'Moog Rogue' and also to run my bass through its input. Really easy to experiment with, but the keyboard is a bit small. I wear out my octave switch. Plus, don't lose the power supply unless you watched Mr. Wizard as a youth.

I bought mine as a cheap and cheerful way to get something close to the moog sound.

The Rogue is not a bad little synth, but it's just too bright and brassy to pass muster as a cheap minimoog clone.

Excellent for leadlines, although the 2 and a half octave keyboard kinda restricts those multi octave runs! (try getting nippy with the octavr switch and keeping your hand in the same place(!))

Tuned to fifths and with high filter resonance settings, it's just like the glorious prog music of the seventies never went away!

A couple of cheap guitar effects pedals will work wonders too.

The current ridiculously inflated prices for old analogue gear make this something less of a bargain than it might be. I don't think I'd pay more than about £100 for another.
