Moog Werkstatt-01 & CV Expander Now Available



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.


Eventide Released New Suite of Reverbs for Moog One



Eventide has released a suite of premium reverbs for the highly anticipated Moog One analog poly synth from Moog Music, Inc. The new flagship instrument is Moog’s first analog poly synth in over 30 years.

In addition to its classic subtractive synthesis architecture of analog oscillators, filters, envelopes, and amplifiers, the new instrument incorporates digital effects with Eventide’s world-class reverbs being a significant and noteworthy part of the package.

The five Eventide effects included with Moog One are: Room, Hall, and Plate, which provide three of the most essential and desirable reverb environments, along with Shimmer and Blackhole, which add unique and evocative reverberant effects that are particularly well suited to creative sound design on the synthesizer. Each effect has multiple parameters that can be used to sculpt its characteristics in detail.

Moog-One is a tri-timbral, polyphonic, analog dream-synth with nearly unlimited sonic potential. It is available in 8-voice or 16-voice configurations.

Each individual Moog One voice circuit contains an analog signal path more power than a Minimoog Voyager, harnessing the power of 3 newly-designed dual-output analog VCOs with ring mod and FM, 2 independent analog filters, a dual source analog noise generator, analog mixer with external audio input, 4 LFO’s and 3 envelope generators.

Each one of Moog One’s three analog timbres is an independently addressable poly synth, each with its own sequencer, arpeggiator, and onboard effects library – including a suite of professional reverbs from Eventide.
