Moog Sound Studio Three Tier Rack Kit
The Moog Sound Studio Three Tier Rack Kit offers a complete analog synthesis with everything you need to begin patching. It allows you to enter the world of analog synthesis as it includes equipment, cables, accessories, and educational tools needed. Whether you are new to semi-modular synths or a professional sound designer the Sound Studio offers you the ultimate experience of sonic power and versatility. The Sound Studio consists of 3x primary sound modules; the Mother-32, DFAM and Subharmonicon.
Three-Tier Rack Kit
The Three-Tier Rack Kit conveniently stacks all 3 synthesizers and the summing mixer together. Because it stacks as one system it will maximize your studio space and orient instruments vertically for optimal interconnectivity. The Sound Studio ships with a protective cover for your modules when not in use. It features a water-repellant cover that is made from rugged Ballistic Cordura. As a result, it safeguards your gear from dust, spills, and other studio or live-performance mishaps. This custom-fit cover provides an ultra-soft interior so it remains gentle against your synth. Furthermore, it accommodates patch cabling and rear I/O panel access and features an adjustable velcro strap to ensure your cover fits snug and stays in place.
The first module in the Sound Studio is the Mother 32. It excels at classic analog bass and leads with its powerful step-sequencing with pattern memory. It offers users an intuitive and expandable semi-modular synthesizer so it will add that classic analog sound you are searching for. With a powerful sequencer and extensive interconnectivity, it allows you to create electronic sounds in a modular ecosystem. The Mother 32 is a live performance and production synthesizer. Therefore it’s designed to provide experimental musicians and synthesists with a diverse array of creative tools to inspire new ideas, unique sound and endless sonic exploration.
The DFAM (Drummer From Another Mother) is the second module which is part of the Sound Studio. It is a semi-modular analog percussion synthesizer that empowers an expressive hands-on approach to percussive pattern creation. It will provide you with rich electronic drum patches and organic analog sequencing that breathes. Activated by an easy-to-use analog sequencer, DFAM’s emotive sound begins with a white noise generator and two wide-range analog oscillators. It effortlessly transitions between rhythmic pulsations, resounding bass and resonant bells in an instant. DFAM’s distinctive voice is then shaped by a classic Moog Ladder filter with two selectable modes: Low Pass mode imparts impact and dimension to each sound it touches, while High Pass mode opens the door to naturally expressive strikes, spikes and clangorous accentuations.
The Subharmonicon is the final Sound Studio module. This semi-modular polyrhythmic analog synthesizer offers you a 6-tone sound engine and multi-layered clock generator; so you can explore the world of subharmonics, polyrhythms, and the unique relationships they create. As a result, it will provide you with unique subharmonic chord shapes and intricate polyrhythmic sequencing. Subharmonicon’s characteristic sound starts with two analog VCOs and four Subharmonic Oscillators for a total of six powerful sound sources. Each subharmonic tone is mathematically derived from one of the two main VCOs, giving the resulting chord shapes a beautifully coherent quality. Onboard quantization lets you dial in perfect intervals every time with selections for multiple tuning systems. You can choose from contemporary Equal Temperament settings (the heavenly intervals of Just Intonation), or the unlimited freedom of no quantization at all.
Sound Studio Audio Mixer and a Power Distribution Hub
The Moog Sound Studio also includes an audio mixer and a power distribution hub. The four-input analog summing mixer features versatile routing options with selectable mono or stereo configurations. The built-in three-way power distribution hub will conveniently power the Sound Studio from a single power supply. Also included are instrument cables that come in lengths and colours to compliment the system and reduce clutter.
Custom Artwork and Exploration Games with Sound Studio
The Sound Studio Three Tier Rack Kit will offer plenty of creative inspiration with the inclusion of a unique card game for generating novel patches. Developed with artists who know these instruments best the cards aim at breaking down the intimidation of learning synthesis. The card games and educational materials allow the user to explore synthesis at their own pace while enjoying the journey. Furthermore, these fun exercises are a perfect jumping-off-point for beginners or a source of inspiration for the seasoned pro. They feature custom artwork created by Kate Dehler and are exclusive to Moog Sound Studio owners. The characters, objects, and poster that accompanies each Sound Studio all come together to transform any space into an immersive creative environment.
The Circuitous Connections also assist you in exploring synthesis whilst enjoying the journey. The cards enable you to quickly discover new sounds with creative patching techniques through randomly generated pathways. So all you need is your own headphones or personal speaker and you’re ready to get started!
