The legendary Moog Model 10 Synthesizer is getting a re-issue
The first-ever compact modular synth made by Robert Moog, the Moog Model 10, is getting a limited-edition faithful recreation.
The all-new limited-edition Moog Model 10 Re-Issue features meticulously recreated components hand-built to the exact specifications of the original design from 1971.
It features a series of Moog 901 oscillators – the same legendary oscillators that Wendy Carlos used for Switch on Bach. The synth features a full-on 901 voltage-controlled oscillators and two slightly watered-down 901-B oscillators.
There is a 901-A oscillators controller which controls the two 901-B’s, allowing you to offset them and adjust the base frequency from a single modulation input.
One of the most revered parts of a Moog synthesizer is its filter section, the new classic recreation features the time-honoured Moog 904A ladder filter design and a 907 fixed filter bank which features 8 bands, a low-pass and a high-pass filter.
There’s a Moog 903A random signal generator which outputs pink or white noise and when combined with the fixed filter bank is capable of creating some awesome effects and sweeps.
The modulation section…
The new Moog Model 10 Re-Issue features two 911 envelope generators and a reversible attenuator. There aren’t any dedicated LFOs, however, keep in mind, you could always use one of the 901-Bs set to a very low pitch for that.
The final piece of the puzzle is the mixer module, the CP11, which is designed to add some sweet saturation when the input is boosted.
The original Model 10 design featured a spring reverb, which is not present in the recreation – however, everything else is built to specification.
Keep in mind, this is not the synth for everyone – it’s for the hardcore Moog fans and synth collectors, it’s also not cheap. It’s set to retail at USD $9950 (Over R150k excl. duties).
