Moog has unveiled a new retro inspired semi-modular analogue synthesizer which takes the form of the Grandmother and is priced at $899. Designed to be a stand-alone system or connected to other sound making devices such as Moog’s Mother-32. The new modular synthesiser has been inspired by electronic instruments and is equipped with a built-in arpeggiator, sequencer and spring reverb tank based on the Moog 905.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Moog Grandmother. “Grandmother’s semi-modular design ensures that human beings of any skill-level can easily explore and experience the joys and magic of analog synthesis — start playing immediately with “no patching required”, then explore an infinite sonic playground with Grandmother’s endlessly reconfigurable front panel and analog spring reverb tank.”
The new synthesiser will be officially launched and showcased at this year’s Moogfest 2018 which takes place from May 17 – 20th in Durham, NC. The Moog Pop-Up Factory is located at 318 Blackwell St, Durham, NC and is free and open to the public from 10am-6pm, May 17 – 20th 2018.
