Moog

Description

Handcrafted in Asheville, NC, Moog's Mother-32 is their first-ever semi-modular synthesizer. The Mother-32 adds a distinctive raw analog sound, sequencing and extensive interconnectivity to any electronic or modular ecosystem. A great companion for the Moog Grandmother, DFAM or other lager Eurorack systems, the Mother-32 is meticulously designed to provide musicians with a diverse array of creative tools to inspire new music, unique sound and endless sonic exploration. Loaded with features, the Mother-32 is pure Moog sound throughout every component.

Pure analog power

Mother-32 is driven by a 100% analog sound engine with a semi-modular architecture that means its prewired for immediate use, but all of its internal wiring can also be interrupted using any of the 32 patch points. At the core of the Mother-32's structure is a single VCO with the choice between a sawtooth waveform and a square shape waveform with a variable pulse width control that can dial in a wide variety of tonal variations. There's also a switchable high pass and low pass classic Moog Ladder filter with its characteristically smooth 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response. The LFO on the Mother-32 can switch between sawtooth and triangle waveshapes with audio-rate modulation capability.

Built-in sequencer

One powerful feature on the Mother-32 is its voltage controlled 32-step sequencer with up to 64 sequence locations. There are two input methods available on the Mother-32 including a keyboard input where you can play in the note for each step with a connected MIDI keyboard controller, or you can use the 1-octave keypad that's built right into the Mother-32. In addition, you can program rest, tie, accent, gate length, glide on/off and ratchet count per step to create more complex and interesting patterns. 

Infinite expansion

Despite the fact that there is only a single oscillator inside the Mother-32, the 32-point patchbay provides an extensive amount of routing capabilities both internally and through external Eurorack compatible modules for an exponential expansion options. Mother-32 is the perfect companion for other Moog semi-modular synthesizers that have come along including the Grandmother and the DFAM. Try putting adding multiple Mother-32s or DFAMs into the optional 2- or 3-tier rack system, and create a wide range of rich harmonic textures.
