Moog Introduces New Model 10 Synthesizer


Making a Moog Synthesizer Published on Sep 17, 2019 Moog Music Inc

"At the Moog Factory in Asheville, North Carolina, every Moog modular synthesizer is hand-built to its original factory specifications. Individual modules are brought to life just as they were nearly 50 years ago: by hand-stuffing and hand-soldering components to circuit boards, and using traditional wiring methods. Each module is then hand-tested, finished with an aluminum panel, and placed into a custom tolex cabinet before the synthesizer leaves for its new home. Watch "Making a Moog Synthesizer" and step inside the Moog Factory to see how Moog synthesizers are built with love and care by the employee-owners at Moog Music.

Original score created by Bana Haffar and composed on a Moog Model 10 Synthesizer."

"The Moog Model 10 Synthesizer returns to production at the Moog Factory in Asheville, NC – making this iconic analog synthesizer available again to artists after nearly 50 years. Every Model 10 is hand-built to its original 1971 specifications and is a true recreation of the original. Individual modules are brought to life just as they were nearly 50 years ago: by hand-stuffing and hand-soldering components to circuit boards, and using traditional wiring methods. Each module is then hand-tested and placed into a custom tolex cabinet before the synthesizer leaves for its new home.

The Model 10 is faithful in every way to its 1971 counterpart (the first compact modular synthesizer model created by Dr. Robert Moog) – all the way down to its hand-soldered electronic circuits. The Model 10 is comprised of 11 discrete analog modules, including the 907 Fixed Filter Bank, revered for its vast sound shaping and timbral possibilities, and three 900-Series oscillators, the foundational sound behind Wendy Carlos’ Switched-On Bach and Isao Tomita’s Snowflakes Are Dancing.

The predecessor to the Model 15, the Model 10 design focuses on purity of sound, speed, and simplicity while providing the enormous sonic depth and dimension found only in a vintage Moog modular synthesizer."

    Lovely.
    But didn't Wendy Carlos ditch her 901B oscillators in favour of some MiniMoog ones? But keeping the 921s.
