The invention of the Moog synthesizer in 1964 forever changed the world of sound.
Capable of breaking down the fundamental building blocks of audio, allowing the operator the ability to control every aspect of its output, essentially building sound from scratch. Musicians, composers, artists, and explorers would adopt this new device to create unheard-of sounds, develop new musical styles, and explore new frontiers of self expression – a tradition of electronic experimentation that continues to evolve more than 50 years later.
The Model 10 is a faithful recreation of the first compact modular synthesiser created by Dr. Robert Moog in 1971. Designed for portability, the Model 10 is housed in a rugged Tolex-enclosed wood cabinet and comprised of 11 discrete analogue modules, including the 907 Fixed Filter Bank, revered for its vast sound shaping and timbral possibilities, and three 900-series oscillators, the foundational sound behind Wendy Carlos’s Switched-On Bach and Isao Tomita’s Snowflakes Are Dancing.
The predecessor to the Model 15, the Model 10 design focuses on purity of sound, speed, and simplicity while providing the enormous sonic depth and dimension found only in a vintage Moog modular synthesiser.
Each Model 10 is hand-built to its original 1971 Moog factory specifications and is a true recreation of the original. Individual modules are brought to life just as they were nearly 50 years ago: by hand-stuffing and hand-soldering components to circuit boards, and using traditional wiring methods. Each module is then tested, finished with an aluminium panel, and placed in its new hand-wired modular instrument.
This limited-edition reissue of the Moog Model 10 is built to order and is only available in limited quantities for a limited time.
