Moog announces the availability of the Werkstatt CV Expansion. I think this may be the beginning of something really cool as I can imagine various expansions to come. At any rate, this is indeed a dope expansion for this with and those that wish to own the Werkstatt. Let’s get that Werkstatt integrated into the lab with CV. (*pauses to click the buy link on Moog’s Site*)

The Werkstatt-01 CV Expander is available on Moog’s site and at select retailers. The price is $39.99.

Moog Says…

The Werkstatt-01 CV Expander converts Werkstatt’s 20 pin patchable expansion header to 12 grounded 3.5mm jacks. This allows your Werkstatt to easily interface with Eurorack Modules, sequencers, and other external CV equipped gear.
