Moog Set to Announce New Analog Polysynth - KeyboardMag

Moog One, the company’s new programmable, tri-timbral analog synthesizer, is the first polyphonic instrument from the company in decades, and it’s a total beast. Powered by a sound engine with the most advanced architecture ever conceived for a Moog synth, Moog One is available in 8- and 16-voice versions that can simultaneously articulate eight or 16 voices, depending on the configuration of your instrument. The Moog One tri-timbral architecture lets you easily assign, split, layer, and stack voices with up to 48 oscillators in Unison mode. 

Per voice, Moog One features three state-of-the-art analog voltage-controlled oscillators (VCOs), two independent analog filters (a Variable State filter and the legendary Moog Ladder Filter) that can be run in series or parallel, a dual-source variable analog noise generator, an analog mixer with external audio input, four LFOs, and three envelope generators. Essentially three independently addressable polysynths in one, Moog One lets you split or layer each of the three timbres — each with its own sequencer, arpeggiator, and onboard effects library — across the premium 61-note Fatar keyboard with velocity and aftertouch. Moog One houses a growing library of programmable per-synth and master bus effects that includes chorus, delay, phase, bit reduction, vocoding, and a suite of premium Eventide reverbs. 

Clad in a handcrafted ash cabinet, the Moog One aluminum front panel is fitted with 73 knobs and 144 buttons, welcoming hands-on interaction with all the sound-sculpting and performance controls. Extended on-screen functionality is accessed via More buttons (one for each module) that serve up additional parameters in the center-panel LCD to deliver the most intuitive and efficient synthesis experience possible. Moog One has the capacity to store and recall tens of thousands of presets that you can easily categorize, edit, notate, and even share via USB drive. Saved Presets can be assigned to front-panel Performance Sets for instant recall; pressing the Snapshot button captures a time-stamped Snapshot of a preset at any stage of development. 

 Packed with the latest technology and more than a half century of Moog analog synthesis design savvy, Moog One is the company’s magnum opus, one of the most tantalizing synthesizers we have ever laid hands on at Sweetwater. Years of research went into this analog dream synth, and it shows in every aspect of its masterful design. Moog One will exceed your every expectation as it inspires your musical creativity and opens portals to a vast sonic universe.
