The SYNTH-WERK Model 10 can serve you in many ways:

IN THE STUDIO

Make your Model 10 the center of your recording studio and upgrade your modular synthesizer setup with a sound that cre- ated legends. Except for phone-plug-size 5U-modules are by the way fully compatible and patchable to Eurorack A-100 Models, so it ́s not about adding another niche,
it’s about expanding your own musical eco-Model and let it grow.

ON STAGE

The Model 10 is a powerfull performer, longing to be used live on stage. Wheth- er you will use it with a sequencing-unit or a keyboard, be assured to have some outstanding sonic possibilities right there at your fingertips. Playing this wonderful instrument is more like talking to an old friend, analogue to that time and space beeing second-tier – so: enjoy!

When released by Bob Moog in 1968, the Synthesizer 10 crafted at the Trumansburg factory was marketed as one of the most compact of the Moog modular Models. Included were the meanwhile more than legendary and nowadays really hard to find 901 Oscillators which layed the foundation for what people still recur to as the genuine Moog sound.

Inspired by the pureness of sound and un- derlying beauty of design, SYNTH-WERK started studying not only Bob Moogs schemes and layouts, but also the toolmak- er behind the artwork and his philosophy regarding sonic aesthetics. Therefore SYNTH-WERK hardware quality benefits from more than 10 years of profound ever- growing understanding of this beautiful mind, that contributed more than one of the fundamental cornerstones that biased the way we think of electronic sound synthesis today.

Just like its paragon the SYNTH-WERK Model 10 is an extraordinary example ofan alltime classic module-composition combined with divine simplicity as much as portability. Every single unit is composed from a careful selection of the finest prime parts available. Regarding its sound gen- erating core, the Model 10 relies on the faithfully recreation of the 901 Oscillator represented by a SW901A control unit combined with two SW901B Oscillators and an independent SW901 Oscillator module.

During redesign stage of conducting paths and component organisation, SYNTH-WERK got rid of an old stigma and provided his tribute with an unrivaled thermic tun- ing-stability. The units are extended by a classic SW903A Random Signal Generator that mixed with the oszillator waveforms, provides some ingenious musical character of virtuoso rawness alongside a dashing im- petus that correspondents in a well orches- trated manner to the integrated audio signal modifier section. The implemented SW907 half-octave filters are capable to come up with some structural and flexible formant shaping, not at least due to some integrated custom made high class inductors.

907 Fixed Filter Bank with two frontpanel options to choose from. If you decide to go for a custom configuration for example containing the 6401 Bode Ringmodulator or the MM551MIDI/CV Interface, the narrow- er 907A version is mandatory. If you don’t require to gain some space in the rack, you can also upgrade the fixed filter element with the advanced 914 Fixed Filter Bank.

The SYNTH-WERK Model 10 ships perfectly embraced in a tolex covered replica of an original Moog style travel-enclosure with front lid and an integrated well-spaced custom power supply unit."

The SYNTH-WERK Model 12 can serve you in many ways:

IN THE STUDIO

Make your Model 12 the center of your recording studio and upgrade your modular synthesizer setup with a sound that cre- ated legends. Except for phone-plug-size 5U-modules are by the way fully compatible and patchable to Eurorack A-100 Models, so it ́s not about adding another niche, it’s about expanding your own musical eco-Model and let it grow.

ON STAGE

The SYNTH-WERK Model 12 is a powerfull performer, longing to be used live on stage. Whether you will use it with a sequenc- ing-unit or a keyboard, be assured to have some outstanding sonic possibilities right there at your fingertips. Playing this won- derful instrument is more like talking to an old friend, analogue to that time and space being second-tier – so: enjoy!

The renowned Synthesizer 12 build from 1972 to 1973 at the Trumansburg factory, equal to its numbered 10 predecessor, was a landmark of craftsmanship that despite close similarity brought along a new de- veloped oscillator model that went by the name 921. The 921 design was a distinct evolutionary step on a constant journey to new levels of analogue waveforming.

Likewise its forerunner, the SYNTH-WERK Model 12 is considered an extraordinary example of a supreme and compact com- bination of 5U-tools with explicit portability in mind. Every single unit is composed from a careful selection of the finest prime parts available. At heart it relies on our latest achievement in successfully recreating the versatility of the 921 Oscillator in every aspect imaginable, resulting in a SW921A control unit combined with two SW921B Oscillators, alongside an independent SW921 module.

Compared to the puristic design and mu- sical rawness of its ancestor, the SYNTH- WERK 921 unfolds its capabilities likewise in a much more sophisticated and grownup manner, accompanied by increased tonal flexibility. This is mainly obtained by care- ful observation of the original build and meanwhile rethinking the whole circuit to produce a VCO that sounds as good as the original. Therefore we respectfully integrat- ed only highly accurate parts and authentic NOS parts, following the original circuit design without any compromise!

The units are extended by a classic SW903A Random Signal Generator as well as the voltage controllable famous lowpass Ladder Filter model SW904A which imparts essentially every audio-source imaginable with its unique character.

More sound sculpting possibilities are implemented with a SW907 Half-Octave Filter module that is capable to come up with some structural and flexible formant shaping, not at least due to some integrated custom made high-class inductors. Besides dynamic modulation the two SW911 ele- ments can be used to describe the contour and envelope of the resulting sound by targeting the SW902 Amplifier or as well controlling the SW904A Lowpass Filter. Regarding attack and decay times you can choose from the same luscious bandwidth like its reference from two milliseconds up to ten seconds.

It is worth mentioning, that the SW907 Fixed Filter Bank is available with two different frontpanel options to choose from. If you decide to go for a custom configuration containing the 6401 Bode Ringmodulator or the MM551MIDI/CV Interface, the narrow- er 907A version is mandatory. If you don’t require to gain some space in your rack, you are also able to upgrade the fixed filter element with the advanced SW914 Fixed Filter Bank.
