Today, American synth company Moog has finally unveiled their latest synth, the behemoth One. The One is based off the original 1976 Poly Moog and is the company's first polyphonic synthesizer in over three decades. This new synth contains all of the best traits from the company's past legendary synths and takes them far beyond the future. Available in 8-voice or 16-voice configurations, each individual Moog One voice circuit contains an analog signal path more powerful than a Minimoog Voyager, harnessing the capabilities of 3 newly-designed dual-output analog VCOs with ring mod and FM, 2 independent analog filters, a dual source analog noise generator, analog mixer with external audio input, 4 LFOs, and 3 envelope generators. Each of Moog One’s three analog timbres is an independently addressable poly synth, each with its own sequencer, arpeggiator, and onboard effects library--including a suite of professional reverbs from Eventide®.
If any of this is above your head, Moog basically just changed the game for high-end analog synthesizers for the foreseeable future. But wait, there's more.
Moog Music has deepened its ability to directly support artists through the addition of a rear panel Ethernet port that enables the Moog One to connect directly to its source and “Phone Home” to the Moog Factory in Asheville, NC. This allows Moog technicians to perform remote diagnostics and service routines when needed. This direct connection is mirrored through the newly designed moogmusic.com, which features a portal for communication that empowers visitors to engage directly in real-time conversation with the employee owners inside the Moog Factory.
Talk about next level.
