Musikmesse 2016: Moog Announces MoroderMother Synth
Giorgio Moroder is widely revered as one of the most influential names in synthesizer music, as our previous Giorgio Moroder Gear Guide shows. After last year's Novation Morodernova, now it's Moog's turn to release its own signature synth - the MoroderMother.
Like his previous collaboration with Novation, the instrument of choice wasn't a top-of-the-range synthesizer, but one of the brand's most affordable models - the popular Moog Mother-32. But even though it was the starting point, the new MoroderMother offers a bit more than the standard one, including a 120-page guide to Moroder tones, biography, rare photographs and exclusive interview.
Announced ahead of Musikmesse 2016, the MoroderMother features a voltage controlled 32-step sequencer with 64 sequence locations, improved Moog low pass and high pass Ladder Filter, 2 voltage controlled mixers, a classic Moog oscillator with dual outputs, wide-range LFO with audio-rate modulation capability, MIDI input and MIDI to CV conversion, white noise, a modular patchbay with 32 patch-points for extended synthesis complexity and an assignable CV jack with 16 assignable sources.
- Semi-Modular design requires no patching for swift, inspired music creation
- Voltage Controlled 64 Step Sequencer with 64 Sequence Locations
- Low Pass & High Pass Moog Ladder Filter (20Hz–20kHz) with voltage controlled resonance
