Moog Ladder Filter

Moog Music has introduced The Ladder Filter, the first in its 500 Series of modules. The new module is based on Bob Moog’s classic filter design.

The 500 Series is a Pro Audio Industry Standard for modular rack recording units. Moog Music will now be producing modules for the 500 Series standard and the Pro Audio industry.

“There have been a lot of firsts for Moog this year,” says Mike Adams, President/CEO of Moog Music. “The release of Animoog, the first professional synthesizer for the iPad has introduced us to whole new segment of customers. Now, The Ladder will reacquaint Moog with the Pro Audio community that embraced Moog Modular Synthesizers in the 1960′s. We are very happy to see the market embracing this exciting format and we look to developing other modules.”
