"Very rare vintage Big Briar 91A Theremin signed by Bob Moog. It's in fantastic shape for its age and fully functional. This one has an additional timbre control that was requested by a previous owner, added by Stephen Dunnington of Moog Music. Apparently it was to make it sound more like Clara Rockmore’s custom instrument. These hardly ever show up for sale, grab this collectible piece before its gone. Previously owned by thereminist Peter Pringle, then owned by a famous musician who delivered it in person to our shop. Before delivery it was checked out by well respected and theremin authority Mike Buffington."

How to setup midi sync between analog synths with Grandmother and OB-6

video upload by EthanJamesMusic

Sponsor plug: see Innerclock Systems for rock solid syncing.

"I received a question for how to set up the Sequential Circuits OB-6 as a master clock that can drive the Moog Grandmother to sync the two synths in a DAW-less environment. This is a universal setup process, where one synth has to be the master clock, and the other sync has to receive the master clock and sync its note attacks.

One caveat is that the old MIDI protocol that is used outside of a DAW is not extremely stable. I got lucky in this video, where clock drift didn't happen, but before the convenience of computers, electronic musicians used to buy expensive Master MIDI clocks to drive all synths from one location."

Latest Moog Spectravox Demos

video uploads by Moog Music

Moog Music

You can find the first two videos in the series here, and additional Spectravox posts here.


1. Spectravox | Sculptable Synthesizer Voice
"In this video we explore how to use Spectravox as a standalone synthesizer voice.

We begin by configuring Spectravox for keyboard control – patching the Keyboard CV output of Grandmother to the 1V/OCT input on Spectravox and the Keyboard Gate output of Grandmother to the Trigger input on Spectravox. Playing Spectravox this way gives us a unique analog synthesizer voice where the ten filters and Spectral Shift controls allow us to sculpt the sound of Spectravox’s Voltage Controlled Oscillator. We look at using these controls alongside the LFO for both traditional lowpass and hipass filtering as well as unique notch filtering, comb filtering, and phasing effects. Lastly, we look at using the LFO and the VCA input to create tremolo effects."
Spectravox | Filter Pings and Analog Physical Modeling
In this video we explore how to ping the filters of Spectravox to turn it into an analog physical modeling instrument and create percussive wooden sounds like marimbas or xylophones. By replacing the carrier input to Spectravox’s filter bank with a gate or envelope instead of audio and turning the resonance of the filter up, we can ping all ten filters and mix their levels for creating struck percussion sounds. In this video we first turn the VCA mode ON and then patch the Gate output of Grandmother to the Trigger input of Spectravox to use Grandmother to trigger Spectravox’s envelope generator. Patching the EG output to the Program input gives us level control of the envelope, and finally patching the Program output to the Carrier input inserts our decay-only envelope directly into the audio input of the filter bank. Later, we connect the Keyboard CV output of Grandmother to the Shift CV input on Spectravox to move all ten filters for melodic control of the filter bank.
2. Spectravox | Recreating Moogerfooger Effects for Guitar
In this video we explore how to use Spectravox to process guitar and look at recreating some of the Moogerfooger effects pedals with it.

We begin by using the Program section and its preamplifier to bring a guitar signal up to Eurorack levels for processing, and then connect the Program section output to the filter bank’s Carrier input. Here is how to recreate or simulate some of the Moogerfoogers:

MF-103 Phaser – use the filter bank as a comb filter and modulate it with the LFO for resonant phaser tones.
MF-101 Lowpass Filter – use only filter 1 (lowpass filter) and the Program Envelope Follower to get enveloped filtering. Switch to one of the bandpass filters for auto-wah effects.
MF-102 Ring Modulator – modulate the VCA CV with the LFO for tremolo effects and push the LFO to audio-rate for ring modulator-esque amplitude modulation. Explore amplitude modulation of each filter band respectively via their CV inputs
MF-105 MuRF – send an external sequence (from DFAM, Grandmother, or any sequencer) to the Shift input for sequenced resonant filter bank movement. Modulate each filter band individually with independent envelopes for even more MuRF-like behavior.

Spectravox is an open-ended signal processor, so use these as starting points and explore the myriad of unclassifiable effects Spectravox is capable of.
3. Spectravox | Emulating a Vintage Drum Machine
Embark on an exploration of Spectravox's capabilities as we delve into the intricate art of crafting vintage drum machine sounds with a contemporary flair. 🎛️💥 Join us in a meticulous fusion of Spectravox and rhythmic sequencers, aimed at resurrecting the beloved beats reminiscent of the 1970s and the nostalgic rhythms of vintage organs.

Unveil the methodology behind sculpting the quintessential drum machine foundation through the mastery of Spectravox's Carrier section. Our comprehensive tutorial will meticulously guide you through the synchronization of rhythmic sequences sourced from esteemed trigger sequencers such as ALM’s Pamela’s New Workout. Witness the transformation of Spectravox's ten bands into a symphony of dynamic kick drums, crisply resonant snares, and timeless wood block accents. Additionally, unlock the intricate craftsmanship involved in crafting hi-hats by toggling the Bands 9 & 10 switch to Hiss mode.

However, our journey merely scratches the surface of Spectravox's boundless potential. Delve into the realm of nuanced control with Spectravox's intuitive panel controls, where each knob adjustment opens doors to a myriad of sonic possibilities. For those craving to push the boundaries of sonic innovation, we offer insights into seamlessly integrating external control voltages, thus offering a gateway to unparalleled rhythmic experiences.

The future of EXPRESSIVE analog synths is HERE

video upload by Anthony Marinelli Music

"I've been waiting 50 years to experience analog synthesizers responding intuitively and immediately to pitch, timbre and volume changes from the slightest movements of my fingers on a keyboard! In this video, you'll see and hear unprecedented control of one of the most extreme patches I've ever made. It incudes (4) Vintage ARP 2600's synthesizers and (1) Vintage 1969 Moog IIIc modular synthesizer playing all at once in unison mode or where each modular synth is playing a separate voice in the chord. I've never heard my favorite all-time analog synths sounding so musical, so different and just so good!

To accomplish this task, we are using 5 channels of Haken Audio CVC (Control Voltage Converter) to receive MPE messages from an Expressive E Osmose and also from a Haken Audio Continuum. These state of the art MIDI controllers are able to understand the players most subtle finger movements and immediately translate those messages to the CVC. Without any perceivable latency, the CVC can then send 4 independent control voltages to alter any parameter in real-time on any one of the synths being used as a voice.

My special guest, Osmose and Continuum expert performer Josh Madoff demonstrates all the features on both of these keyboards by playing musical examples. I'll be explaining what's going on, playing some duets with Josh and also providing an in-depth breakdown of the patches on each synth. I'm optimistic that we'l be seeing controllers n the near future delivering higher and higher levels of artistic experiences for performers. Please enjoy the this presentation and let us know what you think in the comments section. Thank you for your support, it means everything to us!

New Moog Labyrinth Incoming

This one was spotted and sent in via Soviet Space Child.


Just the pics for now.

Also see the new Moog Spectravox.

Collaboration Between SYNTH-WERK and Matthias Nagorni

Press release follows:

Matthias Nagorni has many years of experience in the development of software synthesizers such as the AlsaModularSynth or the Add64. He was also consultant of various Synthesizer projects.

In 2021 Matthias bought a SYNTH-WERK Modular System and started experimenting to control the system via an external audio interface and especially developed software for this application.

He worked on the concept for frequency calibration of his SYNTH-WERK synthesizers 901oscillator banks and digitization of the 911 envelope generators. Matthias found a way to calibrate the tracking of the 901 oscillator bank by using his specially developed algorithm. This opened a complete new world on 901 oscillator banks in polyphonic mode without any modiQcation of the original 901 circuit design.

One day he sent a sound example that he had created with the SYNTH-WERK modular system and his new control system. This was the initial spark for the collaboration and the joint idea of integrating these functions into a keyboard that still offers unimagined functions today. Even old MOOG 3P ́s from the 60 ́s can be calibrated using the SW 955-CONTACT keyboard.

Years of hard work lie behind us, in which the idea and the concept have become a product in which both sides contribute their strengths. Matthias Nagorni's creativity, software and embedded systems expertise and SYNTH-WERK's many years of experience in the development of hardware and manufacturing. This enables us to offer our customers the best possible combination of reliability, quality and functionality that they expect from SYNTH-WERK products.

We are very excited and proud to work together with such an innovative and creative person like Matthias.

The SW 955-CONTACT keyboard is the Qrst product from the collaboration that marks the start of the R.A.3.0 series, which brings the modular synthesizer further into the future.

Moog One - Popular Questions - "Can it sound like a real piano?"

video upload by Scott McAuley Sounds

"Patches will be available at or

This is a very common question I am asked by owners. and curious potential buyers of the moog one, "Can it do realistic piano sounds?"

Obviously the best thing for these type of sounds is either the real thing or romplers.

but me being me, I thought I'd try and see how close I could get it. And not surprisingly, the Moog One gets quite close bearing in mind it is fully analog.

the musical piece, I composed while programming this patch, I have aptly named it 'ONE'


Moog Model 10 Modular Synthesizer Reissue 2023 With 953 Duophonic Keyboard SN 0130

"The first modular synth reborn and extremely accurately recreated. The last great creation of the Asheville, NC Moog Employee Owned company before it was bought out and it's fitting that it was also one of the first. This is the only fully discrete modular moog ever made. Im the original owner and it comes with just like it would brand new with its original box, accessories, patch cables and big bonus, matching Moog 953 Duophonic Keyboard which feels great and integrates with this synth seamlessly connecting just a single cable to the back. Fattest synth moog ever made with only a better power supply, works internationally, and more stable than the original. Save over 3k on this one. The only flaw that I can see is some hairline scratches on the back of the keyboard and a couple tiny Knicks on it as well. The model 10 looks untouched."

Hans Zimmer 'RadioPhonic' Synth @ Superbooth 24 w/ AJH Synth

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"Hans Zimmer's 'RadioPhonic' Synth from AJH Synth @ Superbooth 24 - This monster MiniMod Eurorack modular system was commissioned by Hans himself, and he was kind enough to allow us to build a limited number of exact replicas which will be individually built to order by AJHSynth. Full details of the system, along with an interview with Hans Zimmer about his use of the MiniMod system, can be found at
We will have one such RadioPhonic system on display in our bungalow at Superbooth 24, along with a MinMod Keyz, a 9U full system, and a huge monster case full of AJH modules.
Richard Quirk, and Wayne Taylor (DreamsOfWires/Tomorrow the cure) will also be there representing AJH with Allan J Hall himself. We'd be glad to chat about the modules and demonstrate some in action, so feel free to pop by.

The AJH SYNTH Eurorack range consists of high-end modules, all hand-made in the UK, most of which are based on classic, vintage designs, authentically recreating the circuitry of much sought-after analogue instruments and technologies of the past, whilst greatly expanding them, and bringing them to modern Eurorack levels of convenience, limitless flexibility, and reliability.

Vintage Moog MiniMoog SN 8168

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.

via this listing

"Used by thousands of musicians over many decades it is still one of the most sought after vintage synths. This one is in great condition, especially for it's age. as you can see from the photos. Aside from a few minor nicks in the wood it's cosmetic condition is excellent. The wood is also quite rare - it's known s a "blonde Mini Moog" because it has a lighter type of wood than the darker walnut used on most of them. The blondes are even more collectible and valuable due to their rarity.

Electronically, everything works 100%. It is serial #8166, which indicates it has the later oscillators, which were more stable and stayed in tune better than the earlier ones. That said, it is an analog synth which requires tuning (that's just the nature of the beast) ,so the tuning is never as precise as a modern digital one which is exact and doesn't even require tuning."

video upload by Melbourne Instruments

"Performing 'TRANCE ENCOUNTERS' and 'DREAMBOAT' using NINA Synthesizers and Theremin

THE NIGHT TERRORS are a Melbourne-based electronic music duo consisting of Miles Brown and Sarah Lim. Often billed as 'Australian Electro Goth Legends', The Night Terrors recently released their fourth album titled 'HYPNOTICA - Composition for Theremin and Electronic Music Synthesizer' featuring Miles on Theremin, Synthesizer and Programming, and Sarah on Synthesizer. For this recording we asked Miles and Sarah to choose two compositions from the new album to perform using two NINAs, and of course Miles' Moog Theremin.

In the two songs featured here Miles uses NINA's 12 voice 4-part Multi-timbral ability to control three layers via DAW and one layer via Keyboard controller (Novation SL61). Throughout the performance Miles is using DAW automation to Morph the A/B patches of each layer. Sarah controls the second NINA with her trusted Korg Krome EX 73, using multi-timbral splits and layers. The Theremin is doing it's own thing - not connected to NINA or any other devices. To get that 'hypnotic vintage horror synth' feel, Miles and Sarah created their own NINA presets as well as using original factory presets. With the exception of the Theremin and some percussion, all sounds are generated by the two NINAs used during the recording.

For this session, the songs were performed and recorded live at Fitzroy's iconic NIGHT CAT venue over a single afternoon. The final mix you're hearing is as it was played - without overdubs or post effects. (headphones on!)

NINA is one of the newest and only synthesizers to embrace a paradigm shift in synth control and sound design, whilst the legendary Theremin is the world's oldest and most mysterious electronic instrument. Bringing these two instruments together is a wonderful pairing, and it's made even better with the dark ethereal sounds of The Night Terrors.

NINA is the world’s first fully motorized analog synthesizer. Synth players have dreamt of this feature for decades, and now it’s finally available. Instantly recall your presets and layers, see exactly how the sound was created, and easily pick up from where you were last working. Musicians, Producers & Sound Designers can now enjoy the flexibility of Soft Synth control from a real, physical instrument.

Moog ONE - Analog Nylon Guitar #sounddesign #moogone #custom #patches

video upload by Scott McAuley Sounds

"Patches will be available at or

I set out to try and see how well the Moog One can do acoustic styled instruments, and it again surprised me with how diverse it can be.

this is a singe part instrument, allowing full use of the available voices in your synth.

Yes this is analog, and thus is not a perfect sounding nylon guitar, but bearing in mind this is 100% analog, it is fantastic how well a mixture of ring mod, sync oscillators etc allow us to shape what can sound very close to real life acoustic instrument timbres.

another example of how good this synth really is.

❤️ Support #RetroSound​ channel:

One of my favorite tracks from the 80s.
Subdivisions by the canadian prog rock group Rush, released as the second single from their 1982 album Signals. Written and produced by Rush.

featured: Moog Minimoog, the Oberheim OB-X and the Moog Taurus bass pedals

This cover song series contains my own recreations of my favourite songs from the last 50 years. The original music from which I take inspiration belong to their respective owners. I recreate tracks only for personal passion and to pay homage to these tracks.
My intention is not to create covers that sound exactly like the original (if you want to hear identical sounds, please listen the original). It's more of an inspiration with my sounds from the old synthesizers from the past and of course the great appreciation for the original performers and producers.
Check out the original songs with the original artists here on YouTube.

Moog One - Epic Split! who says it can't do plucks?!

video upload by Scott McAuley Sounds

"Patches will be available at or

I have read in so many forums regarding the Moog One's Lack of attack and punch in the envelopes, this split patch aptly called 'SM Epic Split' consists of sizzling bass on the left of the key bed and searing pluck on the right.

Anyone who wrongly believes the moog one to lack in punch especially for plucks , keys & leads can listen to this. it is just as snappy as any other synth I own.
