The legendary hand-built and soldered Moog Model 10 modular analog Synthesizer is back in production and now available for pre-order.
The Moog Modular is an epic modular synth made in history. In addition to its great influence on the entire Synthesizer market, the instrument was used in many productions. Among others Tangerine Dream, Yes, Emerson Lake, and Palmer, and Beatles to name a few.
With the Model 15 app for iOS/macOS, Moog has given musicians a wonderful opportunity to discover the world of the Moog Modular for little money. But if you prefer the original haptics and have the money, there is good news.
Moog Model 10 Back In Production
Moog announced today that the legendary Moog Model 10 modular analog Synthesizer is back in production at the Moog factory in Asheville. It’s an authentic recreation of Bob Moog’s first compact modular Synthesizer model from 1971.
The Model 10 consists of 11 discrete analog modules, including:
- 901 Voltage Controlled Oscillator
- 901A Oscillator driver
- 2 x 901B Oscillators
- 902 Voltage Controlled Amplifier
- 903A Random Signal Generator
- 904A Voltage Controlled Low Pass Filter
- 907 Fixed Filter Bank
- 2 x 911 Envelope Generators
- CP11 Console Panel
Like the original, the limited-edition reissue is hand soldered and built in the Moog factory. Each system includes a host of good, modern updates.
The new reissue offers an updated onboard power supply supporting a broader range of selectable voltages, including 100v, 120v, 220v, and 240v. For users outside the US, this allows you to power your synthesizer without the need for an external step-up/down transformer.
Then, the Model 10 benefits from a new redesigned rear panel that accommodates an updated main power switch, power lamp, power inlet, grounding lug, and voltage selector switch. And Moog promises that it now has improved calibration and tuning reliability, with this current production model holding tighter calibrations with little variance.
Further, Moog released a nice video with music producer Hannes Bieger. Many know his 5U Modular Jam videos from Instagram.
Nice to see that Moog is bringing the Model 10 back onto the market. Unfortunately not in my price range otherwise I would have already pre-ordered.
Moog Model 10 is available now for pre-order for $11.999 USD/13.999,99€.
