Synth-Werk Intros Modular System Inspired By Klaus Schulze

Klaus Schulze with his modular system.

Synth-Werk has announced a new Moog format modular system, the SW-3P-2020, inspired by Klaus Schulze and the classic Moog 3P modular system.

“Klaus Schulze bought his system in 1975 from German Artist Florian Fricke and used it for several years in live performances, as well as studio recordings,” they note. “It is about time to reengineer and resurrect this wonderful instrument, to the last detail, to bring back the authentic sound and feel of this highly sophisticated beauty.”

Synth-Werk is designed to recreate the sonic character of the original, using discrete components and hand-wiring, while also incorporating improvements like better thermal stability and a balanced XLR output.

The SYSTEM SW-3P-2020 includes the following modules, in three Tolex-covered cases:

SW914 Fixed Filter Bank
SW905 Reverberation Unit

SW991 Filter and Attenuator

    1. Nah, I’ll pass on that and use software. I’ll use my retiree pension to buy a beach house instead, and maybe even a Tesla. LOL

  1. And people complain about the price of the Korg 2600FS! I’ll just stay happy in the cheap seats, thanks.

    Also, look at Moog’s YouTube channel. There’s some new videos.

  2. It’s kind of funny how so many people like to diss high-end gear, while at the same time there’s more high-end gear than ever.

  3. It’s beautiful stuff, I just can’t sit cross-legged on the floor anymore. 🙂 If I had the money to spend on it, I would buy it in an instant. That goes for almost anything though… something like this would be in the top five though!
