    Building your first Eurorack rig? Here’s a checklist to make sure you have everything you need to get started! If you're reading this, you are probably in the same position a lot of us have been. You're intrigued by the idea of building your very own, one-of-a-kind modular synthesizer, but feel completely overwhelmed by the sheer amount of options and information out there.

We're here to clear the air, help you decide if modular synth is right for you, and get you started down the right path. Continue reading →
  2. The Hottest Pedals And Effects Of 2020 (So Far)

    The Hottest Pedals And Effects Of 2020 (So Far)
    Keeping up with current guitar pedal releases can sometimes seem like a full-time job, there are just so many innovative brands who keep pushing the envelope and finding new ways to recreate classics. We wouldn't trade this embarrassment of riches for the world and that's why we put together a new video featuring our choices for the hottest pedals and effects of 2020 so far. Our list starts with the Vongon Paragraphs, an outstanding analog four-pole resonant low pass filter pedal that has been flying off the shelves for the company. Next, the legendary Shin-Ei line is back, and we're talking specifically about the picture-perfect fuzz of the Companion. Rounding out the pedal selections on our list, Strymon discontinued its long-time compression option in the OB-1, but it's now back with the impeccable Compadre.

  3. The Sounds Of The Moog Subharmonicon And Using The Semi-Modular Synth With The Mother-32 And DFAM

    The Sounds Of The Moog Subharmonicon And Using The Semi-Modular Synth With The Mother-32 And DFAM
    One of the most exciting releases we’ll surely see in 2020 is the Moog Subharmonicon, the brand's latest addition to its semi-modular synthesizer line. Everyone with a Mother-32, DFAM, and three-tier rack can now experience the semi-modular feng shui of this trinity of synths all jamming in harmony (or chaos). I got to have a first look at the Subharmonicon at the 2018 Moogfest when it was introduced as one of the DIY kit builds. Only 120 were produced for the festival. Ever since, I’ve seen synth heads on muffwiggler and the Moog forums asking when a full production model would be released and we’re elated to report that it’s here and it’s fantastic.

  4. First Listen: Moog Subsequent 25 Synthesizer

    First Listen: Moog Subsequent 25 Synthesizer
    NAMM 2020 is here and Moog has officially announced it's brand new Subsequent 25 synthesizer. Ever since photos of the new synth were leaked around the start of the year, gear lovers everywhere have been salivating waiting to find out what the story is with this new creation. Fans of the recently discontinued Sub Phatty should be excited, as the Subsequent 25 is a spiritual successor to the beloved synth first released in 2014. The new and improved Subsequent 25 is a 2-note paraphonic analog synth that combines the high-quality analog designs of classic Moog instruments with the versatile sound engine of a modern synthesizer.

  5. Classic Sounds/Future Sounds With Moog Matriarch And Grandmother

    Classic Sounds/Future Sounds With Moog Matriarch And Grandmother
    Throughout the past few years, Moog Music has been busy creating semi-modular synthesizers that have become instant classics upon their release. The Moog Matriarch and Grandmother have become the perfect tools for a wide array of musicians, as both have something to offer those just starting out and those who have been creating patches for decades. If you were to quickly scan the Matriarch and Grandmother with a less than critical eye, the differences between the synths might not standout. The Matriarch builds off the Grandmother's semi-modular design, using the same oscillators, arpeggiator/sequencer, ADSR envelope generator, and ladder filter in its make-up. You'll notice a lot of the same colors and controls, but from there, things start to become different. Continue reading →
  6. Buyer's Guide: Moog Music

    Buyer's Guide: Moog Music
    It’s hard to talk music technology (especially synthesizers), without mentioning the name Moog Music. For decades, the brand's nameplate has adorned countless classic synths that have offered groundbreaking sounds to hit record after hit record. Throughout this Buyer's Guide, we'll talk about the importance of Moog and outline its current crop of synthesizers, theremins, and beyond. So where do you start with a company so revered? Let's talk about Dr. Robert Moog. Continue reading →
  7. First Listen: Moog Matriarch Synthesizer

    First Listen: Moog Matriarch Synthesizer
    For the past several years, Moogfest has been the launching pad for many of Moog's latest product releases. The 2019 edition of the festival was no different as the storied synth brand debuted their new 4-voice, paraphonic analog synth, the Matriarch. The make-up and build style of the Matriarch will be familiar to those who have played the Moog Grandmother. The synth is semi-modular, features classic Bob Moog-designed modules, and an on-board sequencer and arpeggiator. That's where the similarities start to fade. Continue reading →

    Moog Music's Limited Edition Sirin Bass Synth In Stock At Vintage King
    Right before the 2019 NAMM Show, Moog Music announced the release of a new bass synthesizer, the Sirin. This synth (which is limited to only 2500 units worldwide), has now landed at Vintage King and is ready to be shipped to low end fanatics everywhere. For the Sirin, Moog Music revived the Taurus bass synth sound engine and put it into the handy Minitaur form factor. The original Moog Taurus was a foot-operated synth and was manufactured from 1975 to 1981 and had another brief run as the Taurus II from in 1981 to 1983. The bass synth pedal was a favorite among Rush, Yes and many more legendary prog rock artists. Continue reading →
  9. Make Noise Rene Module Goes Three-Dimensional

    Make Noise Rene Module Goes Three-Dimensional
    After spending two years on its development, Make Noise has announced the release of a brand new version of the Rene R2 synthesizer module. While the original Rene was a one-channel, two-dimensional Cartesian sequencer, the newly updated module explores for another dimension altogether. Based on the coordinate system of mathematician René Descartes, the Make Noise Music Rene R2 is now the world's only 3D Music Sequencer. The module now features a three-channel, three-dimensional sequencer with memory that can hold up to 64 complete STATEs. This gives you access to perform and program on multiple different axis with new all new touch sensing technology. Continue reading →

    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.
