Moog Synthesizer Quintet

Setup the 3-tier rack for the Moog Mother-32, Subharmonicon, and DFAM. Thought I’d make a video of my first patch with all of them linked together in their new home. Included the Minitaur for some solid bass and the Grandmother for the sweet lead line. A lot of fun for my first recording, can’t wait to make more with this improved setup.

Moog Grandmother takeoff

Recently, I purchased a Moog Grandmother after dreaming about owning one for years. When it was first released, there was a lot of hype about it’s capabilities, built-in arpeggiator, incredible spring reverb, and semi-modular functionality. The Grandmother was a price point accessible synthesizer for all skill levels without cutting any corners, and I’m here to say, it has really stood up to it’s reputation. At first glance you can’t miss the slick retro look and 41 patch points covering the front panel, but digging deeper you find a well crafted keyboard with great response, a sustain fader for peak control, and lots of options for creating your truly unique sound. There are no presets on this synthesizer only relatively limitless options for discovery and exploration. I took some time to record a couple tracks in Ableton to see what the synth sounds like mixed together, and it did not disappoint!
