Moog Music has announced the Model 10 Synthesizer is returning to production at the Moog Factory in Asheville, NC, the first time in almost fifty years the analog synth has been available to purchase.
The Moog Model 10, predecessor to the Moog Model 15, was the first compact modular synthesizer model created by Dr. Robert Moog. The reprised Model 10 is “faithful in every way” to its 1971 counterpart, from the hand-soldered electronic circuits on up.
The Model 10 is housed in a tolex-wrapped wood cabinet and is made up of 11 separate analog modules, including the 907 Fixed Filter Bank and three 900-Series oscillators, the sound behind Wendy Carlos’ Switched-On Bach and Isao Tomita’s Snowflakes Are Dancing.
- 1x 901 Voltage Controlled Oscillator
- 1x 901A Oscillator driver
- 2x 901B Oscillators
- 1x 902 Voltage Controlled Amplifier
- 1x 903A Random Signal Generator
- 1x 904A Voltage Controlled Low Pass Filter
- 1x 907 Fixed Filter Bank
- 2x 911 Envelope Generators
- 1x CP11 Console Panel
- 1x 130 Watt 120 VAC Power Supply (230 VAC available upon request)
Each Moog Model 10 is built using the synth’s original documentation, art, and circuit board files. Each hand-crafted module is mounted into a solid wood, tolex-wrapped cabinet.
Moog Music released this “Making a Moog Synthesizer” video, featuring the Model 10, with a soundtrack by synthesist Bana Haffar (composed on a Moog Model 10):
