Anyone know the pro's and con's of these two models? They seem to be on the same level price-wise and the features seem about the same. My main question is if they both accept external sounds for processing.

My Micromoog accepts external audio -in.It also can send out or recieve
switch-trigger and voltage control signals.I don't know what the Rogue
backpanel looks like.I looked at one some yrs.ago,but can't remember the layout.I've run my Minimoog with my Micromoog keyboard and also
have used the Micro-modulation(S+H)to modulate the Mini.I've run other keyboards through the Micro as well.Sounds great!

I've owned both.

The Micro and Multimoog's are great for live performance because of the aftertouch feature, that was very rare at that time.

However, for sound, it's the Rogue all the way. My Rogue has the warmth and classic Moog character. The Micro and Multi have a high quality sound but one that is without the classic Moog warmth, IMO. It's different-still good, but different, more of a CEM/Prophet character.

Also, the Rogue has 2 oscillators, a big difference in making more complex, richer sounds. The drawback to the Rogue is that the VCA and VCF aren't controlled separately, they share the same switches. I don't find this a big deal in terms of quickly coming up with great sounds.

As far as syncing to midi, the jacks are right there on the back of the Rogue.
