Moog Introduces Mother 32, Semi-Modular Analog Synth

Today, Moog Music announced the release of Mother-32, a “vintage-voiced” analog performance and production synthesizer.  The semi-modular all-in-one synth works as a stand-alone instrument, or can be incorporated into a Eurorack modular setup.

Architecturally, Mother-32 is a single-VCO Moog synth voice – but with 32 audio and control voltage patch points, a built-in sequencer and ‘Moog sound.’ At $599, the Mother-32 promises to be a inexpensive standalone Moog synth module and also a great starting point for building a Eurorack modular system.

At Knobcon 2015, we got a sneak preview of the new Moog Mother 32 from Moog Product Development Specialist Steve Dunnington. (Stay tuned for that story in a little bit here on Synthtopia).
