Moog Mother 32 Semi-Modular Synth Product Overview by GAK

The Mother 32 is a desktop and Eurorack compatible desktop semi-modular synthesiser from Moog. Access to 'that Moog sound' in a modular format has been prohibitively expensive for decades. With their classic modular systems commanding eye watering prices amongst collectors and the recent re issue of the legendary MOOG MODULAR MODEL 15, SYSTEM 35 and SYSTEM 55 only available in limited numbers and at a cost out of most peoples reach.

Enter Mother 32. A single oscillator semi-modular synth with an architecture eminently suited to anyone looking for a truly fulfilling experimental analogue experience. Featuring a built in trigger keyboard, an inspiring and versatile internal sequencer with its own 64 pattern memory, that is just the start of the Mother 32s potential. The front panel plays host to all the knobs and control switches you would expect on a Moog, plus a 32 point patch bay for all of your modular routing experiments. Last but not least, it is mountable on one of Moogs elegant multi tier stands, and it will also nestle perfectly in your Eurorack modular system too.

Moog Product Overview

The Moog Mother-32 is the first tabletop semi-modular synthesizer from Moog. It is a distinctive analog instrument that adds raw analog sound, sequencing and extensive interconnectivity to any electronic or modular ecosystem. This expansive new live performance and production instrument is handcrafted in Asheville, NC and has been meticulously designed to provide musicians with a diverse array of creative tools to inspire new music, unique sound and endless sonic exploration.

Mother-32 comes secured in a rugged extruded aluminum enclosure with wood sides and features a voltage controlled 32-step sequencer with 64 sequence locations, definitive Moog low pass and high pass Ladder Filter, 2 voltage controlled mixers, a classic Moog oscillator with dual outputs, wide-range LFO with audio-rate modulation capability, MIDI input and MIDI to CV conversion, white noise, a modular patchbay with 32 patch-points for extended synthesis complexity and an assignable CV jack with 16 assignable sources.

  • Terence Phipps


    Fantastic product, super quick and friendly service. Highly recommended.

  • Adam Bowden


    Everything I'd hoped for and more. Old school sounds a plenty and I love the sequencer. I don't have a Euro Rack system so this is very good as a stand alone unit, but I can also connect it up to my Synthesizers.com system too. Very happy indeed.

  • Joshua Mccann


    5 stars! Love the product and will be buying more from moog in the future
