I didn't feel that the moog had any trippy effect on Here Comes The Sun, I think it made Because feel a little bit more trippy. In Here Comes The Sun it mostly provides a more natural feel, except during the bridge which it almost feels out of place. I agree it does also give a new age sort of feel to Because, especially during its bridge. In Maxwell's Silver Hammer it also seems out of place, but I'm used to it there now so I guess it fits in.

oooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhh..... The word huge didn´t prepare me to see this:

 

A question for the experts: The new very little Minimoog Voyager achieves to produce the same range of sounds that the old one?

It's based on a Minimoog, which in turn was based on the original Moog but without all the patch cord stuff. I think they've updated it a little to allow Midi etc. Still eye-wateringly expensive though. If I was considering it I'd go for a cheaper emulator or synth instead – AFAIK there's nothing in a Moog that can't be achieved on other instruments, but there's a certain cachet in the name (which rhymes with 'rogue', incidentally).

Just to clarify: That larger of the two keyboards, in the top picture? That's actually a whole separate self-contained synth, a Polymoog I believe. It's not part of the that huge modular system (which is controlled by the smaller keyboard.) I'm just sayin'.

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967
