One of my all time favorites, Moog Music Inc, dropped a little teaser video for their next generation Synthesizer. What’s the synth’s name? I don’t know. But it has some cool thing called the MULTIDRIVE which incorporates a pre-filter gain and post filter overdrive to create a a mean beast of a sound to Moog’s classic sound.
In this video Bob Moog’s homeboy, Professor Herb Deutsch, noodles around and demonstrates the yet unfinished synth for us. Take a look.
Here is what Moog’s saying about the new synth…
Professor Herb Deutsch, synth pioneer and collaborator of Bob Moog, visited the Moog Machine Shop during Moogfest 2012. While here, Professor Deutsch explored Moog’s next generation analog synthesizer, while still in it’s research & design phase. In the past, Bob Moog always tested his ideas, instruments and sounds with musicians and colleagues. This spirit of collaboration continues at the Moog factory to this day and is essential to our work. It is a key part of the product development process, as it furthers our ideas and helps us shape better tools for musicians.
Making its official debut at NAMM 2013, the first 24 of these new instruments are being handcrafted at the Moog Factory this week. Until you get a chance to see it in its final form at NAMM 2013, please enjoy this video. Love, your friends at Moog.
A closer look at the latest pic released on Moog Music’s Facebook page reveals the possible name of this mystery machine. Drum Roll… the “SUB PHATTY”. You can see it just beneath the top right two knobs. Wow a sub phatty sounds dangerously fun. I imagine that Moog couldnt let the minibrute be the only one on the market with this small form factor and ill subtones. 2013 should be fun.
