According to our contact at Moog, two of the modules – the Geodesic Sampler and the Geospatial Reverb – are custom builds, specific to the Global Synthesizer.
The third module, the Brother From Another Mother, was designed as a project for ‘Engineer VIP’ attendees to build at the event:
The Brother From Another Mother (BFAM) is a module, in Eurorack format, that is designed to be a complete analog synth and sequencer, but also to be a complement to the previously released Mother-32 and other Euro modules.
The Brother From Another Mother offers a basic synth voice, with:
- a single VCO, with saw & pulse wave forms;
- ADSR envelope;
- VCF with cutoff and resonance and VCF EG Amount control;
- An 8-stage analog step sequencer, with control over glide, gate length & clock rate and per-step gate control; and
- 16 patch points.
The workshop BFAM has a silver panel with black type, instead of the black panel with white type of the Global Synthesizer version:
Officially, the Brother From Another Mother synth module was designed specifically for the Moogfest Engineer VIP Workshop. We’d be surprised, though, if the BAFM doesn’t get a broader release, at some point.
The BFAM was introduced to Moogfest Engineer VIP attendees, during a two-day synth DIY workshop, led by Moog engineers:
