First Listen: Moog Grandmother Synthesizer
Prior to Moogfest 2018, Moog Music announced the launch of a new synthesizer, the Moog Grandmother. This semi-modular synthesizer features a built-in arpeggiator, sequencer and spring reverb tank, allowing both novices and synth enthusiasts the ability to use the instrument straight out of the box.
Vintage King is now taking pre-orders for the Moog Grandmother. Please click here to head to our pre-order page and continue below to watch our new demo of the synthesizer.
Moog's latest synth features two analog oscillators with four wave shapes each and a hard sync option that lets you sync the second oscillator to the first. These oscillators are based on the version in the Moog MiniMoog. The synthesizer features an easy-to-use arpeggiator and sequencer, which can store up to three sequences with up to 256 notes each.
Made to be compatible with Moog's Mother-32, DFAM and other modular systems, the Grandmother features 41 patch points with 21 inputs, 16 outputs and a parallel-wired 4-jack mult. The options are truly endless with what you can do when pairing the Grandmother to other semi-modular and modular synths.
Perhaps one of the most unique elements of the Grandmother is the built-in spring reverb tank. Based on Moog's 905 module, this spring reverb tank is a welcome addition back into the modular world, having only been used recently in the rerelease of Moog's IIIp unit.
