When Moog discontinued their iconic flagship synth, the Minimoog Voyager, a few months ago, they blessed us with a fitting addition to the range as a consolation prize. The Mother-32 is a new departure for the legendary Asheville-based company. Throwing their considerable weight into the Eurorack arena, this is a seriously big move, bridging the gap between the contemporary modular trend and the classic, old-school circuit designs that made the Moog name.
With a semi-modular design based around a single VCO, switchable high-pass or low-pass filter and a single envelope generator, the Mother-32’s architecture is simple but effective. The sound, as you’d expect from Moog, is top notch. Add a 32-step sequencer and 32 patch points, and you’ve got a complete package.
The compatibility with other modules is a great added bonus, meaning that you can hook up to Eurorack oscillators and filters for a more versatile sound. You can even chain multiple Mother-32 modules for an all-Moog setup. We’re excited to see where Moog go with this idea. It looks like a new chapter in the Moog story.
