I thought about the 55 for a minute after the price drop. Had they done that before my modular upgrade here, I might have started with that. That said, for me, I think that it's not the right choice. If you want a reasonable facsimile of the Moog modular experience in a smaller size, I think that it's great. I also think that some of the modules are very much worth it. I have the 960 and 962, the filter bank, and the high pass filter. What turns me off about the full experience is how so many of the utility modules are so wide. I really wanted a Moog C3m style mixer, but I couldn't bring myself to buy the super wide mixer with mults. I might have been convinced had the price been where it is now, but instead, I went with more flexible and more modern variants of the design.
Another thing that I hate is s-triggers.
Finally, after it's all said and done, it's the wrong mix of modules for me. My modular is kind of hybrid old school/new school. I would probably have to get rid of too much that I didn't like.
Now, had they released a 2500 version, I would have jumped on that.
