Moog Multimoog

via this auction

"This multimoog recently had a full check up done by SD Machines and is fully functional and ready to play. Cosmetically, the synthesizer is in excellent condition.

The Multimoog is a highly versatile analog monophonic synthesizer. It is basically an extended version of the Micromoog, which came out 3 years before. It features a ribbon controller and a touch sensitive keyboard. It has many interesting modulation routings and has a powerful, analog sound.

The Multimoog has 2 VCOs and a suboscillator. The filter can be modulated by the oscillator B in different ways. It has oscillator sync, noise generator, sample & hold, mixable oscillator waveforms, pulse width modulation, the 24 dB Moog filter and two envelopes. It has all interfacing you would expect from a good monophonic synth: CV / Gate IN and OUT, EXTERNAL SIGNAL IN, VCF IN. Y

A versatile synth introduced by Moog Music in 1978. It was Moog's most advanced non-modular model at the time, despite the fact that it sold for less than the Minimoog. It was a two-VCO synth with a dedicatd LFO, two attack-release envelope generators, and the usual Moog transistor ladder four-pole lowpass VCF. It reused the basic case design from the Micromoog and it carried over that model's ribbon controller; however, on the Multimoog there were multiple routing options for the ribbon controller signal.

The 44-note keyboard (F to C, typical for Moog keyboards) included aftertouch, which was routable to multiple destinations, including cross modulation; it could also accept an external control voltage input. The panel layout was notable for the rows of white slider switches which selected routing options. The model remained in production until 1981, when it was replaced by the Source. The extent of the production run is unknown; a comment to the model description page at Vintage Synth Explorer indicates that less than 1000 were produced. The Multimoog is moderately valuable to collectors today. The keyboard aftertouch force sensors have failed on nearly all extant units, and there is no known repair."

Moogfest Featured on PBS News: At Moogfest, the music revolution will be synthesized

Published on May 24, 2017 PBS NewsHour

"Moogfest, named after inventor Robert Moog, is a celebration of the art, engineering and technology of synthesizers, machines that create sounds electronically. Jeffrey Brown takes us to the gathering for a look at how experiments in technology and music can inspire one another."

"Described as Crumar's flagship monosynth to rival the Minimoog, the Italian company wasted no time to introduce an analog synth with DCO's which for its time was ahead of the game.

It's reported only 500 were made, which is somewhat of a mystery and even more so to verify by the fact that not many will be working properly or retired into the scrap bins :(

An awesome synth marketed for professionals the DS2 has been widely recognised with musicians, looking for that vintage Italo sound ala Moroder..."

052417 /// Korg MS2000 - Roland Boutique JP-08 - Waldorf Blofeld - Elektron Machinedrum

Published on May 25, 2017 Coma City

"I had all my gear torn down for a performance that never happened, so I decided to take advantage of everything in the studio being scattered to change the setup around a bit.

I initially started playing just to check signal flow and ended up with this. All tracks performed/recorded live in a single take with no post production or editing of any kind done afterward. Sequencing was handled by my Arturia BeatStep Pro. Instruments mixed into Behringer Xenyx X2442USB mixer with a little reverb and delay added with the onboard effects processor, audio recorder from mixer tape out to PreSonus Audiobox iTwo, into my iPhone 7 Plus.

The video is just random footage of my work computer on the fritz, some waves from the Makena lava flow beach on Maui, Hawaii, and me improving this piece. All audio/video recorded with the camera app on iPhone 7 Plus and edited in iMovie.

Bass - Roland Boutique JP-08
Melody - Waldorf Blofeld
Strings/saw lead - Korg MS2k (manually modulating built-in delay and chorus effects)
Rhythm - Elektron Machinedrum"

Modular Moog Hoedown Patch - Quick Demo

Published on May 25, 2017 noddyspuncture

"Just a quick demo of my 'Hoedown' patch I use with ELP tribute Noddy's Puncture. I have 5 oscillators for 'audio' in total. The first two are unison, using both square & sawtooth waveforms - with a third set a 5th up (via my custom red lever switch...) and also using square & sawtooth. Those three oscillators are then affected by the EG - via an attenuator, which sets the final pitch they climb up to. Another two oscillators - using just the sawtooth waveforms - are also set to unison but an octave higher than the first two and are not affected by the EG... basically making a 'drone'. All tunings are critical to getting the sound right. It's definitely not an easy one to set up live..!"

desert wind modular session (braids, ripples, tides, maths, monologue and transmisser)

Published on May 25, 2017 ollilaboratories

"If you like my stuff, please support me on

I am venturing deeper into the world of modular, still not sure whats really going on but I think for myself and my own workflow that I am starting to find the magic ratio between infinite noodling and actual music making. Trying to not make overcomplicated stuff, and just go with the flow when something sound and feels right..

My main sound source is the braids, which is being modulated by the maths and tides.. drone style, the beatstep just sends voltage when I want to change the key. 0-coast is not in use here. On the monologue I wanted to do my trademark solo style sound.. and yep, it sounds just like the ms-20.

EarthQuaker Devices transmisser does the desert wind sound on top the modular sounds, adding to this some minor delay on the Caverns to build the echoing spaces for the modular. KORG monologue gets a simple delay + reverb in the presonus 16.0.2 mixer.. then straight into 2-track!

BooM, hope you will enjoy it !"
