In 1964, the world changed. With cost and portability in mind (and a $16,000 grant from the New York State Small Business Association), Robert Moog and his collaborator, Herb Deutsch, released the world’s first commercial synthesizer.
A modular design, this new instrument featured voltage-controlled oscillators (VCOs) and voltage-controlled amplifiers (VCAs). These pitch and volume parameters could interact with one another to approximate vibrato and tremolo, laying the foundation for the analog synthesizer as we know it today.
Though Robert’s original innovations remain, the Moog family has grown significantly since the 1960s, and so has the Moog design.
Ready to take the next step in your analog synthesis journey? The Moog Sound Studio has you covered. Moog Sound Studio is an all-inclusive bundle of semi-modular synthesizers and accessories created to provide users with all of the equipment, cables, accessories, and educational tools needed to enter the world of analog synthesis for the first time or to continue to explore sound in an immersive new way. All you need is your own headphones or personal speaker and you’re ready to get started!
Moog semi-modular synthesizers are the perfect instruments to focus your artistic direction, empower creative expression, and expand your exploration of experimental modular, professional sound design or electronic production. The Moog Sound Studio journey begins by selecting an instrument combination to complement your musical style or sonic preference: Mother 32 & DFAM or DFAM & Subharmonicon. These instrument pairings are particularly powerful when patched together, vastly expanding the sonic capabilities of each individual synth to produce a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.
Along with the chosen duo of semi-modular synthesizers, each Moog Sound Studio includes a personal stereo summing mixer with 3-way power distribution to provide flexible signal routing and power your entire system conveniently from a single power supply. Also included are a series of guided exercises, exploration games, experimental patch sheets, imaginative studio art, and more to outfit your studio and take your synthesis skills to the next level.
Moog’s SUBsequent series picks up where its famous Sub Phatty monosynth left off, featuring modern classics like the SUBsequent 25 and SUBsequent 37, fully analog, duophonic synthesizers with dual oscillators, flexible CV and MIDI connectivity, multi-drive circuitry, and a compact footprint.
And don’t forget the Subharmonicon, an earth-shaking, six-voice, semi-modular synth designed to explore what happens when subharmonics and polyrhythms meet.
