Between the Matriarch, Sirin: Analog Messenger of Joy, and Moog One, Moog’s kept itself busy over the past year adding new faces to its formidable roster.

Hot on the heels of the Buchla 100 Series reissue—a re-launching of the West Coast pioneers' very first modular system—Moog is announcing it will revive an original modular invention personally designed by Dr. Bob Moog: the Model 10.

Handbuilt by Moog in 1971, the Model 10 was his first compact modular synth. The unit is comprised of three oscillators, a voltage-controlled lowpass ladder filter, fixed filter bank, dual envelope generators, random signal generator, and voltage-controller amplifier (VCA).

While relatively simple in the scope of modular synthesis, the Model 10 offers power and versatility. Wendy Carlos used a custom Moog synthesizer built with similar 900-series oscillators to craft her Switched-On Bach, as did Isao Tomita for his Snowflakes Are Dancing.

According to Moog, the full list of modules included are:

  • 1x 901 Voltage Controlled Oscillator
  • 1x 901A Oscillator driver
  • 2x 901B Oscillators
  • 1x 902 Voltage Controlled Amplifier
  • 1x 903A Random Signal Generator
  • 1x 904A Voltage Controlled Low Pass Filter
  • 1x 907 Fixed Filter Bank
  • 2x 911 Envelope Generators
  • 1x CP11 Console Panel
  • 1x 130 Watt 120 VAC Power Supply (230 VAC available upon request)

Each reissue unit is handbuilt in the company’s Asheville’s factory and clocks in with a price tag of $9,950. It's expected to begin shipping October 10.
