|Moog Memorymoog synthesizer |
the Moog that you may replace by the Andromeda now ? ;-)) well its still great and has been my dream but it is know as quite “service demanding”.. and the Andro has real Moog filters, too.. well.. they are still not the same.. this machine is still one of the nicest of those Keyboard–Moogs..
3 VCOs with PWM each and unlike the minimoog it has a dedicated LFO,so you do not NEED to use VCO3 for modulation purposes.
you want the Memory moog as a 6 voice minimoog? hmm, well the memory was a curtis based synth opposed to dicrete electronics in the mini, it sounds a bit fatter and warmer, nevertheless it is a good sounding synth.
the Memorymoog is an interesting machine, maybe the newer synth to think of is the alesis andromeda.. but it compares a bit like the memory to a mini in sound..
|Micromoog + Multimoog |
and the monophonic range continues..
the Multi moog has a quite simple envelope set but it has a force sensor and mod routings are nice, syncable 2 VCOs and LFO , S/H and a ribbon controller
the Micro moog is a smaller “version”.. reduced features..
|Moog Rogue synthesizerhas Syncable OSCs.. |
just one knob to set the 2 VCOs octaves but another pot to set the detune or unison setting..
AD or AS – only one small envelope
the lower pics can be enlarged (click on it)..
|Moog Realistic |
very much like the Rogue, but you can not set the VCOs to different octave settings and waveforms..
still 2 VCOs and a nice sound.. both rogue and mg1 sound a bit more “rough” than the prodigy, minimoog etc.
compared to the Rogue it has a waveform selctor switch for each VCO, so this is the difference..
the upper pic can be enlarged (click on it)..
very simple one..the can be enlarged (click on it)..
|the MOOG MINIMOOG .. DER SYNTHESIZER!||has an own section as well as the Voyager.. – >> Moog Voyager // Minimoog|
|Moog Sonic 6 |
the Moog Sonic IV was not really a “moog”.. it was a musonics who bought moog, you can find some (rare) minimoogs with “musonics” label,too..
theSonic Six has self triggering features, a 24dB/oct LPF, 2 VCOs and 2 LFOs,
quite good for some “self playing” experience.. it is said the most “non moog”-moog sound. well, they are quite right.. ;) the Sonic V is a Musonics Synth Proto, not many made of the “V”
some pics can be enlarged (click on it)..

|kinda Preset Moog.. the Moog Opus 3 synthesizer |
.. not a Prodigy! but close..
well, this is more the “preset” way of a moog.. with different sections..
|MOOG Prodigy simple 2 OSC synth, one LFO, but this one with aftertouch and ENVable pitchmod.. the smaller knobs are mod, the simpler switchesd are also not original ;)the new knobs are: OSC: pitch mod ENV sens. and switch wheel/ENV, mid: force sensor amount (aftertouch, the FSR sits under the keys!!), ext in amount and gain and ringmod amount, switches (beside the wheel): osct +1/-1 and pitch wheel mode sync or pitch! |
here’s a moded Moog Prodigy: it has a so called FSR sensor under its keyboard (aftertouch!), the knobs on mid.panel are for sensitivity! also: a simple gate does a simple ringmodulation (very cheap just one rectangular signal can be used..), sync can be ctrled by ENV (or better: osc 1s pitch) done by Jenzz (also member of our Modular DIY project – find schematics of FSR sensor
|synthesizer Schematics: |
the Liberation power supply and interface:
|Moog Liberation |
the only one from Moog with a Ring Modulator, also “poly” section,
note: the power unit / interface is a 2 Unit Rack..
Schemos: Moog Liberation (nice Ringmodulator!)
|-Moog Source –> |
2 VCO synth
with memory and data entry wheel
|Moog Source |
the “digital” Moog, no knobs but buttons.. anyway it did not sound bad..
strange blue/cyan coloured.. maybe you have heard it on early Front242 records? ;)
Schaltplan / schematics / ciruitry: Moog Source
the Polymoog is FULL POLYPHONIC.
the filterbank consists of 3 pairs of 3 sliders with resonance

THE POLYMOOG Keyboard (preset version, knobs “missing” here!
|playing bass with your feet? |
the moog taurus is a simple bass synth..
|Taurus II, very much like a rogue with no keyboard..|
|Moog CDX, more an organ but with filter |
afaik the only “moog organ” I know of..
