Composer Ty Unwin, who’s best known for his extensive credits composing for television documentaries and series, recently took delivery of one of the new Moog System 55 modular synthesizers.
In this video, Unwin shares his thoughts on his new synth, the role for 5U modular synths in electronic music studios and why there’s a place for the Ferraris or Lambourghinis of the synth world.
The new Moog System 55 modular synthesizers are reissues of the classic 70’s design, using ‘new old stock’ parts and the original manufacturing techniques.
The units are being manufactured by Moog in limited quantities:
- 55 units of the System 55, priced at $35,000 per instrument;
- 35 of units of the System 35, priced at $22,000 per instrument; and
- 150 units of the Model 15, priced at $10,000 per instrument.
