Dunnington gave us a detailed overview of the new Mother 32, including details on the new synthesizer’s architecture, physical and electrical compatibility with Eurorack gear and their rack-mounting system.
Moog wasn’t allowing anyone to record audio demos of the Mother 32 at Knobcon, because the units that they had at the show were prototypes – so we’ve embedded official audio demos below:
The Mother 32 is a Eurorack synth module that is a basic all-in-one synth voice. It comes in its own case, but can also be mounted in a Eurorack system. Moog also is offering rack units so you can stack multiple Mother 32 synths, as shown below.
Architecturally, it is a single-VCO Moog synth voice – but with 32 audio and control voltage patch points and a built-in sequencer.
- Semi-Modular design means that patching is optional
- Voltage Controlled 32 Step Sequencer with 64 Sequence Locations
- Low Pass & High Pass Moog Ladder Filter (20Hz–20kHz) with voltage controlled resonance
- External audio input for processing outside sound sources
- Oscillator with Pulse and Sawtooth wave outputs
- 5-pin MIDI input and MIDI to CV converter
- 32 Modular Patch Points (Includes 5 patch cables)
- 2 Voltage-controlled mixers
- Can be easily transferred into a Eurorack skiff or case
- Mount 2 or 3 units vertically with optional 2 and 3 Tier kits
- A complete starter Eurorack system
The Mother 32 has a street price of about US $599. For details on the Mother 32, see the Moog site.
