The rumors were true. Moog One, the first polyphonic analog synth from Moog in more than three decades does exist and it’s coming to the market soon, in two version – 8 and 16 voices.
What’s The Moog One
In a nutshell, Moog One is a programmable, tri-timbral analog synth with an intuitive tactile interface. Per voice, Moog One features three analog voltage-controlled oscillators (VCOs), two independent analog filters (a Variable State filter and the famous Moog Ladder Filter) that can be run in series or parallel, a dual-source variable analog noise generator, an analog mixer with external audio input, four LFOs, and three envelope generators.
You can split or layer the three timbres — each with its own sequencer, arpeggiator, and onboard effects library — across the premium 61-note Fatar keyboard with velocity and aftertouch.
Speaking of the effects, Moog collaborated with Eventide to offer premium effects like Blackhole, Shimmer, Plate, Room, and Hall, on top of other on-board features such as delay, chorus, bit-reduction, etc. Needless to say, the effects are digital but if bypassed, the audio path is fully analog.
Presets? Well, you get more than just (thousands of ) presets. Moog One allows you to save snapshots of the current settings. You can basically save the entire configuration of the synth, very handy for complex live performances.
We’ll add more pictures and videos as they become available. Stay tuned…
