Well, the rumour is out there that Moog have something revolutionary to release in the next day or two, their website hints at a guitar synth of all things, maybe that's an April fools? Does the world need yet anther attempt at guitar meets synth?

It looks like a guitar with a polyphonic sustainer.

yes, because thus far its been mostly guitars controlling synths and nothing more. In some cases, it allowed you to mix the guitar sound with the triggered synthesized sound.

From the demos, i'd take a stab that this is something a little more advanced... like a guitar with a polyphonic sustainer, and a triggered envelope generator. Kind of like a guitar with a complex built in Ebow. As a guitarist, being able to swiftly adjust the ADSR properties of a guitars naturally created sound is a HUGE deal.

where's the link??
I went to moogmusic.com and couldn't find the news.

early-ish guitar synths like the GR-300 were good, in that it wasn't about digitally reading a "note" and then sending info via MIDI, rather it was about tracking the guitar strings frequencies continually, and recreating the pitch instantaneously with a VCO.

It looks like it has been taken down now. It was a teaser video when you enter the Moog site, but it seems to be gone now. An April fools joke?
