Today, Moog Music announced its first tabletop semi-modular synthesizer, the Mother-32.
The vintage-voiced analog synthesizer features a simple, easy-to-use one knob per-function style interface, a comprehensive voltage-controlled sequencer, and a 32-point analog patchbay. The semi-modular design means that no patching is required to create powerful sound, allowing users of any experience the ability to quickly make music. The patch bay includes an assignable CV output jack, MIDI to CV conversion, external audio input, a second voltage-controlled mixer, sync, and multiple unit expandability.
The unit's sound—which is voiced by a powerful 10-octave analog oscillator with variable pulse width, and an analog white noise generator—is controlled by the 32-step, voltage controlled sequencer, or an external MIDI controller, and then travels through a Moog Ladder Filter with selectable low pass and high pass filter types.
The Mother-32 is available now for $599. You can check out more information on the unit here, with the official demo video below.
