"I remember Candida playing a basic part on 'Common People' with the Farfisa — which produced her big kind of signature sound — but a lot of that was redone. Sitting with his Micromoog, Jarvis was constantly going, 'Just give me that for a second.' So, we'd run the part through the Moog, he'd fiddle with it and we'd put it back down on tape. Candida's keyboards all had push-button presets, and Jarvis modifed everything so they didn't sound like push-button presets but had a certain Jarvis-ness about them."

"Alan – Fender Pro Jr. amp is still the best buy out there - 15watts, tube, simple circuit. The Traynor Bassmaster head can be found pretty cheap, but it’s one of the best sounding amps in the world. Over the years I’ve found things cheap here & there - a Micro-Moog synth for $150, the first Roland drum machine for $25, the Silvertone I use in the Snakes, etc. I’ve had to buy gear on the road in emergency situations & it always goes bad - a Victoria Tweed amp, a JMI AC30 copy, newer AC30s."more
Well, it can sound like a minimoog +, well sort of. It can sound like a 2 osc mini with no detune! But,once it warms up, about 10 minutes after its turned on, its rock solid as far as staying in tune. But, this thing can do those crazy space sound fx.. how? well, turn the osc off, put filter on tone, modulate the waveshape, now play with the cut off, waveshape, oh yeah put the freq to wide and play with that too. FAR OUT! Fast envs, gotta be 1ms attack, and it chugs along at fast bpm. it can sound soft, aggro, acidic (in the moog way), and in your face, killer leads, killer bass! I am glad i got this instead of a mini moog? i am leaving something out. I had mine modified. this mod. http://www.physicsenterprises.andrews.edu/diy_archive/manuals/moog/micromoog/vcfmod.html This make this thing a bass king, it makes the osc sound huge! read about it, it costs next to nothing to do this mode, and its simple. and turns this into a screamer! Also moog this moog scales at 0.98 volts per octave, makes scaling with a kenton a bit tricky, passable but not perfect. So you can build a cable/box thing to fix it.. the link is here.. http://machines.hyperreal.org/manufacturers/Moog/schematics/moogfix.jpg All this and you are set to have one of the most killer bass synths ever!
