Today, Moog synthesizers has announced the triumphant return of their legendary Model 10 analog modular synth, making this iconic analog synthesizer once again available to artists after nearly 50 years. The Model 10 is faithful in every way to its 1971 counterpart (the first compact modular synthesizer model created by Dr. Robert Moog) – all the way down to its hand-soldered electronic circuits. The Model 10 is housed in a rugged tolex-wrapped wood cabinet and comprised of 11 discrete analog 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’ Switched-On Bach and Isao Tomita’s Snowflakes Are Dancing.
The predecessor to the Model 15, the Model 10 design focuses on the purity of sound, speed, and simplicity while providing the enormous sonic depth and dimension found only in a vintage Moog modular synthesizer.
Each Moog Model 10 is built using all-original documentation, art, and circuit board files, and each hand-crafted module is securely mounted into a solid wood, tolex-wrapped cabinet.
This limited-edition reissue of the Moog Model 10 is built to order and is available in limited quantities for a limited time.
As a bonus, Moog has prepared a video giving us an inside look at exactly how these beautiful machines are created.
