Moog discontinues its DIY-friendly Werkstatt-01 & CV Expander analog Synthesizer and US customers can save $40 OFF while supplies last.
That was a short reunion. It wasn’t until the end of 2020 that Moog presented the Werkstatt-01, a reissue of their DIY-friendly analog Synthesizer.
After a year it’s over again. Moog officially discontinues it. If you still want the synth, you should get it now otherwise it can be more difficult to get one.
Moog Werkstatt-01 & CV Expander
The Moog Werkstatt-01 is a beautiful, simple analog Synthesizer that is powered with a single oscillator (saw/pulse with PWM) and a 24dB ladder filter. It remains the cheapest gateway to the legendary Moog analog sound. Then, it has a triangle/square LFO, an ADSR envelope, and a single VCA round up the Moog Werkstatt engine.
It also features the tiny patch-bay aka CV Expander on the right side with which you can break the internal signal routing and create your own. This also allows the synth to communicate with any hardware or Eurorack system. According to Moog, they have added a gate input where yo can now attach a keyboard like the Arturia Keystep to it.
The special thing about the Werkstatt-01 is that it is a synth that you can put together yourself without soldering. And it’s a lovely synth with which you can learn your first steps in synthesis and signal routing.
The last Moog Werkstatt-01 units are now available for € 219. Customers in US can now purchase it with a $40 USD discount for $159 USD.
