ABOUT well, this is the frist commercial Synthesizer, Bob Moog startet showing it on the AES in 1964 and had some visionary musicians as clients till 1969 when switched on back was released, after that Moog went over to become a real company. this is what a synthesizer is: synthesis = put together. means putting together modules by patch cords, thats the idea.. more on the modular , click the Link..

Moog themselves re-released the System 15, 35 and 55 in their original setup starting at 10k€ - list of modules see below.
ABOUT Der Modular wurde eigentlich nur 1964 auf der AES vorgestellt, erst etwas später gab es die Systeme, die man heute kennt (I, II, III, IIIc, 15, 35, 55). Bis 1966 gab es nur wenige Kunden, erst ab ca.1969 begann durch Switched on Bach grosses Interesse an Synthesizern und die eigentlich Firma Moog startete dann richtig durch. Natürlich ist die Konfiguraiton der Module frei. Es war das,was ein Synthesizer wirklich ist: Synthese = Zusammensetzen. Einzelne Module erfüllen spezielle Aufgaben und sind durch Verschaltung per Kabel ein Verbund musikalischer Möglichkeiten. mehr siehe Link..

2014 gab es von Moog selbst ein Re-Release der Systeme 15, 35 und 55 (Modul-Liste siehe unten), welche es nun ab 10k€ zu kaufen gibt.
ABOUT
DETAILS there have been quite a lot of moog modulars over time:
* the big series 35 and 55,in wooden case like the one shown below.
* the vinyl cabinet (1 to 3 cabinets) but normally only one: systems 10,12,15
* synthesizer I,II,III,Ic,2c,2p,3c,3p
top luxury of course is the moog system 55.

most important thing:
the moogs use 1V/Oct. CV and SWITCHED TRIGGER. so it is compatible to roland and arp, but you need a small modification to the gate/trigger: the moogs used one kind of plugs for ENV triggering and VCO waveform restart:

europeans like me may only have seen this slightly different for loudspeakers: the jones cinch plug (something that the dinosaurs in the us may have used for phone stuff (!?!?). rare!
DETAILS Es gab verschiedenste Systeme und Modulzusammenstellungen: siehe english..
DETAILS
SOUND well everything is possible.. the moog systems sounds are very high quality: wide, fat, big (if you want it to)..
SOUND ALLES ist möglich! theoretisch natürlich. Die Moog Systeme klingen ausserordentlich gut. breit, fett, wenn man es möchte..

VERSION masses of clones and systems avalable, see the link..

Moog Modular
ein System35

Dashier ist ein Moog 35 in sehr gutem Zustand.. Eigner ist Bernie (aliens-project.de), der im Rahmen unserer Netzwerke dieses Monster am 14.9.01 live gespielt hat.. Die unteren beiden sind eine noch grössere Rarität: PPG Modular! zusammen hat diese Kiste 21 OSCs!! ;-)) Die Tastatur wurde natürlich live nicht benutzt! ;-) inzwischen ist er noch grösse, schaut auch das aber besser mal auf der site von aliens-project.de aka bernie an..
Allerdings natürlich in einigen Punkten nicht "original"..

the moog series 10 and 15 are simply one vinyl cabinet, the keyboard also looks different than those 35 / 55 wooden keyboards
all moogs contain at least the 904 filter , only the bigger ones have the coupler and HPF also..

Moogish Modular
a little moogish system (mixed with some other modules)

how to check:
- the way it looks and the mechanical things look different (obvious here but there's one more step)
- Jones Plugs and 6mm Jacks
- CP Modules and Power Supply? Ok, may have changed for "vintage" reasons, but..
- the design of the module itself (just check one of them)..
there's more in the "background" section how close it may look..
so just check if you want originals or the sound in this case don't care about that like me..
Moogish Modular Moogish Modular synthesizer

Moogish Modular
ein kleines "moogisches" System .. gemischt mit anderen

und deutlicher Hinweis..
Unterscheidungstipps:
- Buchsen
- Mechanische Befestigung
- CP MOdule?
- Anschlüsse: Klinken und Jones Plugs für Trigger/Gate?
- Farbe tiefscharz und runder als bei vielen anderen, so wie hier..

Und generell gibt es natürlich auch Originale, in dem die Stromversorgung oder anderes abweichen könnten. Hier sieht man am Äußerlichen schon ganz gut, wie es nicht aussehen kann wenn es ein Moog ist..

Trigger Info / Moog vs Minimoog
Trigger Info / Moog vs Minimoog + others

the andro has the same filters! (904 MODULE) as the andromeda.. it's a bit thinner than the modular or the mini..

I compared the minimoog to my moog modular system and the result is: it is very close - it's only minimal more warmth in the modular (to me), so imagine the first mini prototype as the 904 filter (a) LPF, 2 simplified ENVs and 3 OSCs with mixer. no lfo. use an osc as lfo mini synthesizer.


TRIGGER INFO:
if you need switched trigger and want to midify it: try to use voltage trigger= 0 v and 8-10V as "sitched" trigger for moog. it works on prodigy and others..

MOOG known or written as Moog Music or big briar, R.A.Moog, Musonics

Bob Moog died in 2005 and had to fight a long time to re-use his own name, he worked under the big briar name when that happened, but he had some took overs and collaborations with lots of companies like norlin, musonics and the coops: Crumar, Realistic and others..

Official Intl. Site : http://www.moogmusic.com
DER HERSTELLER
THE MANUFACTURER

Muss man über Moog was sagen? Gegründet von Robert Arthur Moog (genannt Bob Moog). Er baute zunächst Theremine und hatte nach den ersten Erfolgen mit dem Modularsystem und dem Minimoog andere Firmen, die die Firma übernahmen wie Norlin und Musonics, es gab auch unzählige Zusammenarbeiten mit anderen wie beim Crumar Spirit oder dem Realistic Moog MG1/Concertmate, Heute arbeitet die Firma ohne ihren August 2005 verstorbenen Gründer. Die Moog Foundation kümmert sich heute um sein Erbe, während Moog Music heute eine andere Philosophie verfolgt. Bob war sicher kein perfekter Geschäftsmann wie viele andere US Schmieden von Synthesizern auch, er hatte lange um seinen Namen kämpfen müssen und firmierte in der Zeit als Big Briar.
