Moog Grandmother - Limited Run

L20592000000000_IMAGE_00.jpeg


"Limited-edition design created exclusively for Moogfest 2018.

To celebrate Grandmother’s debut at Moogfest 2018, the first 500 units have been marked with a limited-edition Moogfest 2018 badge and include a custom denim jacket from Moog. Get your Grandmother Moogfest 2018 Edition before they're gone!

Retro looks, cool vibe and a sound that's all Moog. Grandmother is a direct reflection of Moog's modular heritage, where the journey to creating sound is as much fun as the end result. There are no presets, so you'll have to rely on creative exploration and a basic understanding of synthesis to achieve any desired results, but nothing can compare to the joy and satisfaction of creating your own custom sounds. Just like its vintage predecessors, Grandmother's sound engine, modulation engine and onboard spring reverb tank are 100% analog. Want proof? Just give the desk a bump and listen to its springs rattle inside. With Grandmother, what you see is what you get. No menu diving, no recall, nothing to get in the way of you and your sound.

The Grandmother is a semi-modular synth, which means you can start playing it right out of the box without any patching. But if you want to experience the full creative potential of Grandmother, just use any of its 41 patch points to override its internal circuitry and create your own complex signal routing. Choose from 21 inputs, 16 outputs and a parallel-wired 4-jack mult. The options are only limited by your imagination, and with the ability to integrate Grandmother into other modular synths like the Mother-32 or DFAM, or even into larger Eurorack systems, the possibilities are infinite.

Analog Architecture
All the basic building blocks of a modular synth are included in the Grandmother's design, and even some welcomed extras. There are two analog oscillators each with their own selectable waveforms including triangle, sawtooth, square and pulse, with a hard sync button to align them appropriately. The analog LFO is perfect for adding some movement to your sound and with its audio-rate capability, it can act as a third oscillator for bigger, more aggressive sounds. There's also a classic Moog 4-pole 10Hz-20kHz Ladder filter, patchable 1-pole high-pass filter, and an analog ADSR envelope generator ready to sculpt your sound.

Beyond The Basics
The Grandmother would be an excellent machine with only the essentials, but Moog innovates further by adding in an analog hardware spring reverb tank that can add a subtle shine, while taming any harsh frequencies. The reverb tank can also be used to process external sources as a standalone effect. Grandmother also has a built-in arpeggiator that's easy to use and an onboard sequencer that can store up to 3 sequences with up to 256 notes each.

Vintage Vibe, Modern Connectivity
Despite its vintage-inspired design, Grandmother has all of the connectivity needed for a modern production environment. There's a 5-pin MIDI In/Out/Thru as well as MIDI over USB for instant integration with your host computer. Grandmother also features 1/4" main output and a 1/4” external audio input for guitars, drum machines, and more. Grandmother's 32-note premium Fatar keybed makes this a premium standalone synth but will also work perfectly as the front end to an existing modular system. No matter how you decide to use it, Grandmother will give you a lifetime of sound exploration.

Wat een lelijk ding zeg :D

Wel leuke featureset, vooral grappig dat er een echte springreverb in zit. Ben benieuwd hoe hij klinkt!

Is die kleurenprint het Moogfest detail of blijft het er daarna ook op zitten? Ik heb toch liever gewoon een saaie zwart-witte eigenlijk. Of toch maar gewoon een Subsequent37 :)

Ik vind de naam een groter probleem dan de kleuren eigenlijk.

Ik snap de marketing van veel bedrijven niet.

Die naam vind ik nog wel geestig, maar die kleuren maken het een beetje cheap voor mij.
