Moog's new standalone semi-modular analog synthesizer called Grandmother is being unveiled at Moogfest this week.
The $899 unit follows a retro style and works all on its own, or can be connected to other sound making devices, like Moog's Mother-32, which doesn't have a built-in keyboard.
This is Moog’s first instrument of 2018 and is said to have been inspired by Bob Moog’s 1960s and '70s modular synths, featuring a built-in arpeggiator, sequencer and spring reverb tank (based on the Moog 905).
If you’re at Moogfest (May 17 to 20 in North Carolina), you can watch units being made on-site and even have a go yourself. If not, watch Adrian Younge introduce the instrument below.
