Moog's description of the Moog Mother-32 analog monophonic semi-modular synthesizer


Mother-32.

Mother-32® is an intuitive and expandable semi-modular synthesizer that adds raw analog sound, powerful sequencing and extensive interconnectivity to any creative, electronic or modular ecosystem.

 

 

No cables are required for swift, inspired music creation and exploration. When you’re ready, enter the vast sonic realms of modular synthesis.

 

 

32-Note Step Sequencer.

Craft new ideas and perform in two unique sequencer modes with up to 64 on-board sequences for live performance.

 

 

Exponentially Expandable.

Combine multiple Mother-32s [as well as Moog DFAMs and Moog Subharmonicons] to unlock new realms of sound, imagination and creativity. Push even farther with complete Eurorack integration.

 

 

Endless Exploration.

The Mother-32 is a distinctive analog instrument that brings raw sound, step-sequencing and extensive interconnectivity to any electronic or modular ecosystem. This expansive live performance and production synthesizer is designed to provide experimental musicians and synthesists with a diverse array of creative tools to inspire new ideas, unique sound and endless sonic exploration.

Drive synchronized sound with Mother 32’s powerful step sequencer while utilizing its modular patchbay and assignable output to spawn a living, breathing organism with dynamic and modifiable sound processing. Patch multiple control and sound sources into Mother-32’s voltage controlled mixers and truly unlock the vast potential of this powerful instrument, or pull all of the patch cables, plug in a MIDI cable and simply drive your Mother-32 from any MIDI-equipped device.

The Mother-32 is secured in an extruded aluminum enclosure with wood sides, but can also easily be relocated to almost any Eurorack enclosure.

 

 

Mother-32 Explorations.

During the prototype phase, Moog worked with 3 unique synthesists: Erika (Interdimensional Transmissions), Max Ravitz (Ghostly International), and Bana Haffar to produce a video that explores Mother-32’s vast capabilities. Through performance and sound design, each artist displays the extensive vocabulary found within Mother-32. All patches were performed live, with no overdubs.

 

Mike Dean, one of the rap game's most prolific producers and its reigning master keyboardist, spent a weekend in the Moog Music Factory.
