Kim Bjorn does it again with his latest book Patch & Tweak With Moog. Known for his in-depth style of documentation of the music tech that is near and dear to our heart, Bjorn focuses in on Moog’s modular and semi-modular synths.

From Mother32 and Subharmonicon to Grandmother and Matriarch, Moog’s latest line up of products are all very well represented in the pages of Patch & Tweak With Moog.

Bjorn’s style lends itself to somehow making technical subject matter enjoyable and easily consumed. Here he challenges the reader to dig in a bit deeper when patching Moog’s line up.

The Patch & Tweak With Moog book offers up interviews, tech tips, patch notes… actually – in-depth patch notes and much more. This is definitely required reading if you are into Moog’s current line of patchable synths.


PATCH & TWEAK with Moog ($39.99 USD) is the brand new, ultimate resource for fans of Moog synthesizers and musicians of all skill levels interested in an immersive modular synthesis experience. Throughout the book’s 200 colorful pages, readers will explore more than 100 tips, ideas, and patches to use for creative inspiration, providing the ultimate reference guide for both aspiring and experienced synthesists.

With a foreword from renowned film score composer Hans Zimmer and 200 pages full of synthesizer techniques, creative patch ideas, sound design tips, professional artist interviews, and more, the book takes an in-depth look at Moog’s line of semi-modular analog synthesizers, including Mother-32, DFAM, Subharmonicon, Grandmother, and Matriarch.
