Moog announced that their Werkstatt-01 & CV Expander is now shipping and is available for a limited time. Get hands-on with the compact, patchable Werkstatt-01 Analog Synthesizer Kit and CV Expander.
Werkstatt-01 is a patchable and compact analog synthesizer. A gateway to the expansive world of analog synthesis, the instrument is a must-have for anyone interested in exploring classic Moog sound and circuitry through the unique, hands-on experience of a DIY synthesizer project. This affordable, easy-to-assemble kit requires no prior electronics experience and is a perfect afternoon (or Christmas morning) project.
The straightforward simplicity of Werkstatt-01’s design makes it an ideal jumping-off point to discover a limitless new world of analog sound design, and the included 3.5mm CV Expander makes it a no-brainer for everyone wishing to integrate the iconic Moog sound into their music. The 9” by 6” musical machine may be small, but the raw power and spectrum of the sound it produces is immense.
First introduced at Moogfest 2014 as part of the event’s Engineering Workshop, the Werkstatt-01 analog synthesizer has been admired as an essential introductory synth, a powerful standalone instrument, and an enhancement to any integrated electronic music ecosystem. Based on classic Moog circuitry, Werkstatt-01 was created to provide a hands-on understanding of how analog synthesizers work and encourage experimentation with sound through patching and interconnectivity.
Werkstatt-01’s 100% analog circuits deliver the classic soul and futuristic sound Moog synthesizers are known for. Featuring an full-range analog oscillator with selectable waveforms to power your sound and the legendary Moog Ladder Filter for precision harmonic sculpting, this instrument covers a vast expanse of sonic territory.
Adding movement is as simple as engaging Werkstatt-01’s Analog LFO circuit to impart your sound with the motion of gently breathing waves – or crank up the LFO speed and summon cosmic laser beams. A 2-stage Analog Envelope Generator with Sustain gives you the control to shape your dynamics, dialing in everything from lush electronic string swells to punchy baselines and organic percussion hits – and everything in between.
