Well, there are lots of new synths that can do a nice phat analog bass.
Truth of it is, it isn't just the Rogue you are hearing there. There's the work of sound engineers, magic of final mastering.
Unless you are an analog buff who can take care of repairs and find spare parts don't go Vintage. I'd even say don't go analog. For the kind of sound you need you could get away with Arturia's Minimoog V. Might not sound a 100% like the original but would do most of it for you.
On the other hand if you are really after that 100% Rogue bass then only a Rogue would do.
In the end it is only you and you alone as a user who should be able to tell the difference. Most people who'll get to hear your music wouldn't even know what a Moog is. A few people might. Whether they'll care enough if its a real Moog or not shouldn't matter for as long as they like your music.
