Moog Music has confirmed that it will be releasing a new Moog synthesizer at the 2013 NAMM Show.
Here’s a sneak preview that shows electronic music synth pioneer and co-creator of the original Moog modular synthesizer, professor Herb Deutsch, checking out a rough prototype of the new moog synthesizer during Moogfest 2012.
Here’s what Moog has to say about the video:
Professor Herb Deutsch, synth pioneer and collaborator of Bob Moog, visited the Moog Machine Shop during Moogfest 2012. While here, Professor Deutsch explored Moog’s next generation analog synthesizer, while still in it’s research & design phase. In the past, Bob Moog always tested his ideas, instruments and sounds with musicians and colleagues. This spirit of collaboration continues at the Moog factory to this day and is essential to our work. It is a key part of the product development process, as it furthers our ideas and helps us shape better tools for musicians.
Making its official debut at NAMM 2013, the first 24 of these new instruments are being handcrafted at the Moog Factory this week.
Update: The new synth’s name has been confirmed as the Moog Sub Phatty.
