Two Synths Are Better Than One
With this version of the Moog Sound Studio, you receive two of Moog’s acclaimed analogue synthesizers - the Mother-32 and the DFAM. Whilst these are fantastic synths in their own right, the Moog Sound Studio emphasises the flexible semi-modular aspect of these synths and how they’re a lot more than the sum of their parts.
Classic Moog Sound
The Moog Mother-32 is an expandable and highly intuitive analog monosynth, that condenses the quintessential Moog-sound into a compact form factor. Its powerful, raw sound is perfect for soaring leads, earth-shattering basses and thanks to its comprehensive patch bay - otherworldly effects. With its built-in sequencer, creating inspiring patterns and ideas (which can then be stored for later recall) is an absolute breeze.
The Moog Sound Studio has been engineered to create a symbiosis between the DFAM & Mother-32, making it easy to integrate & patch them together. There’s also another version of the MSS that swaps out the M-32 for the venerable Subharmonicon, which is a totally different beast with its deep 6-tone sound engine and polyrhythmic clock generator.
Combining two of Moog’s groundbreaking synths into one amazing package, the Moog Sound Studio is a great solution if you’re looking for a fun & exciting way to explore analogue synths or need to add that classic Moog sound to your synth arsenal.
