A musical demonstration of using a external gate in jack with the Moog Werkstatt-01 hackable analog synth.
1st modification of my werkstatt: adding an ext gate IN jack. All info on it is here:http://laurentidesynthworks.blogspot….
effects used: moogerfooger MF-104M Delay & Electro Harmonix Cathedral Reverb
A quick improvisation. Tools used: Moog Voyager, Camel Audio Alchemy Player, Logic Pro X (sequencing and effects). Audio captured direct to camera. More at www.experimentalsynth.com
The Bob Moog Foundation Archives contain a lot of fantastic historical pieces. This 1978 Moog Apollo is one of them. Marc Doty explains the history of this device and explores its functionality.
Marc Doty explores the Moog Apollo in the second of two videos that tell the history of the Moog Apollo as far as we currently know it, and let you hear this rich analog device do what it does.
Little demo of the Paraphonic Scene for the Moog Voyager in the iPad app “Patch Morpher” from Jazzman Ltd.
This is not just an editor and a patch morpher allows to create new sound morphing from one sound to another, but allows your Moog Voyager to become a real paraphonic synthesizer, with all the three oscillators perfectly in tune!
Patch Morpher is a patch librarian & editor for hardware synthesisers – with a twist: its powerful and innovative sound generator allows you to easily create your own totally original sounds without the hassle of editing 100s of parameters by hand.
This is truly innovative technology with all 5-star reviews from enthusiasts to professional sound designers.
Start with your favourite patches, then morph, blend & randomise them to create new sounds – editing 100s of parameters in real-time.
Patches can be organised into scenes for live performance, and you can then morph or mutate between them to create totally original new sounds & patches, controlling hundreds of parameters with one finger, all in real-time. You can even keep playing your synth as the sound evolves.
The fully-featured editor allows you to further tweak your sounds, taking advantage of the iPad’s touch screen to give you full control whilst allowing you to view many parameters at a single glance with no hidden menus. Patches can be saved on your iPad so you won’t run out of storage slots on your synthesiser.
Play the Moog Voyager paraphonically – addressing each of its three oscillators independently!
Automatically convert patches between the Prophet 08 and the Prophet 12.
Patch Morpher uses Core MIDI: connect to your synth via WiFi, the Apple camera connection kit or a compatible MIDI interface.
Patch Morpher is compatible with the following synthesisers:
- Moog Voyager
- Access Virus TI
- Waldorf Blofeld
- Waldorf Pulse 2
- Dave Smith Mopho
- Dave Smith Prophet 08
- Dave Smith Prophet 12
- Korg KingKorg
- Mutable Instruments Shruthi-1
Please see our web-site for a video demo, user manual & free patch downloads.
Patch Morpher is an invaluable tool if you own one of these hardware synthesisers. Its revolutionary approach to patch generation makes it very easy & fun to create new & inspiring sounds. Allow your music to stand out with its own totally original sounds!

Moog Music today announced that it is releasing the Moog Werkstatt – originally designed for a hands-on workshop during Moogfest 2014 – as a limited edition hackable synthesizer.
During Moogfest, the comppany facilitated a two-day workshop, in which Moog engineers assisted 125 participants in building Werkstatt, an educational, patchable analog synthesizer designed specifically for the event. It was Moog’s first workshop since 1997, when Bob Moog held a theremin workshop in Portland, Maine.
Moog has responded to interest by creating a no-soldering-required version of Werkstatt, the Werkstatt-Ø1 Moogfest 2014 Analog Synthesizer. They are releasing it in limited quantities to a small number of US dealers only
“We created Werkstatt specifically as an educational tool for teaching electronics assembly techniques and analog synthesizer circuit design in a workshop at Moogfest 2014.” said Moog Product Development Specialist Steve Dunnington, creator of the Werkstatt.“That workshop was very special for the Moog engineers. We learned so much from the experience and each of the participants.”
“While we can’t duplicate the experience of the Moogfest 2014 Engineering VIP Workshop,” adds Dunnington, “Werkstatt-Ø1 will still offer a valuable and fun educational experience for customers.”
The Werkstatt-Ø1 Moogfest 2014 Analog Synthesizer features a single voltage controlled oscillator with two selectable waveshapes, saw and pulse. This section also includes a control for adjusting pulse width modulation and oscillator frequency, which extends from 8Hz to 16KHz.
The voltage controlled filter section houses a classic 4-pole Moog Ladder Filter with 20Hz-20kHz frequency response, and a variable resonance control that is capable of driving the filter into self oscillation.
Werkstatt-Ø1 has two selectable modulation sources; a dual waveshape LFO with 0.2Hz-600Hz sweepable range, and a variable attack/decay envelope section with sustain on/off switch. Modulation sources are easily assigned via dedicated VCO and VCF modulation sections, each with a variable control for modulation amount.
Also included in each Werkstatt-Ø1 is a breadboard-style patchable header, which expands its sonic abilities. This patchable header features a dedicated external audio input, and control voltage inputs for VCO linear FM, VCO exponential FM, VCF, VCA, and LFO. CV outputs are in pairs, and include dual outputs for Keyboard CV, EG, LFO, VCF, VCO, Gate, and Trigger.
The Aluminum Minimoog Voyager is a limited edition, 100 piece production of the legendary Minimoog Voyager — the analog synthesizer that was the culmination of a lifetime of work for synthesizer pioneer Dr. Robert Moog. It is housed in an elegantly machined, all aluminum cabinet that has been weight relieved for portability. The cabinet features a clear anodized finish with industrial fixtures securing an electric blue backlit panel with electric blue LEDs, all black switches and nuts, and electric blue pitch & mod wheels.

The Will Gregory Moog Ensemble first performed together in 2005 as part of the Bath Festival, recreating some of the ‘Switched on Bach’ arrangements of Wendy Carlos in the Seventies. As one half of the electronic music sensation Goldfrapp, the keyboard-player and composer Will Gregory is one of the UK’s leading advocates of using synthesizers and electronic instruments to create new sounds and reinvent old ones. The band perform a mixture of specially composed music, transcriptions of classical works, and their own versions of music from popular culture and film scores.
This was filmed in May 2014 at a rehearsal for their forthcoming shows.

very important is the VCO waveform and the filter settings
this is the dry synth sound.
