New Moog Memorymoog Coming to Moogfest?

Soviet Space Child, wrote it to let us know he heard a rumor that Moog would be announcing yet another major synth at Moogfest this year. The new Grandmother has been formally announced, and we know about the DIY Subharmonicon. I did a little digging and look at what I found. A new Memorymoog with integrated Roli Seaboard Rise. I have no idea if this is real. I do not know if Moog will announce anything else at Moogfest. What I do know is that in the comments of the first post for the Grandmother here, a few people pined for a new Memorymoog, someone said they hoped they were working on one, and an anonymous commenter chimed in with, "They are...they'll announce it this week."

Update: word is the image is an April fools joke.   An embedded ROLI keyboard would hike up the cost compared to a traditional keyboard, and it could limit the audience for those that prefer standard keys. Then again, if it were a limited run... That said, the rumors are out there, and we'll know soon enough... Until then, some free publicity for Moogfest. :)

Update2: and yep, it was just a rumor. Curious what the mix-up was.  Considering this post went up at the height of the Grandmother, I'm guessing SSC's source didn't already know about the Subharmonicon.

Update3: new rumor here.
