Moogfest has released this sneak preview image of the new Moog Werkstatt Analog Synthesizer, with a couple of interesting features:
- Along the right-hand side, there is a break-out patch-bay, allowing modular patching of the Werkstatt; and
- Along the bottom, there’s a button-style keyboard.
“Werkstatt” means “workshop” in German, so the DIY function is probable. The architecture is a single-oscillator monosynth, switchable between saw waves and PWM. Both the filter and oscillator mod can be set to either an independent LFO or the envelope. Attack / Decay / sustain switch controls the envelope. The most interesting feature is the analog patch bay along the right-hand side of the unit, implemented as a simple header strip. This should suggest semi-modular capabilities by patching with jumper wires. A prototype shot shows those jumpers in action and a 1/4″ jack plug for audio coming out the back.

I hooked my Sub Phatty up to my sound card so I could use Aeromidi for Leap to control a few functions… more to come.
