Moog’s new polyphonic analog Synthesizer is probably called Moog One, has 3 VCO’s, 3 part multi-timbral, Eventide reverb, arp, sequencer & more
The synth rumours kitchen is simmering! As a user in the Gearslutz forum reported, there are accurate informations about the new polyphonic Synthesizer by Moog. It will probably be called Moog One and is a 8 & 16 voice polyphonic analog Synthesizer. The synth will be available in both configuration.The instrument is based on a 3 part multi-timbral analog engine that features 3 VCO’s per voice, a knob per function interface, 4 LFO’s per part, arp and sequencer per part & more.
Another interesting info is that they have worked together with Eventide for the built-in reverb effect. The leaked information also tells that it will have assignable CV ins/outs and a lot of I/O for routing synths and effects.
Analog Synth Engine Meets Linux System?
For a long time there is speculation as to whether Moog Music will launch a Synthesizer with a built-in Linux system. It seems that now is the case because the synth is not only classically analog but also has interesting other features coming from the iOS apps like Animoog. Here is a video where two developers of Moog Music (Geert Bevin & Amos Gaynes) talked about this new idea.
Not too pleasing is the price. The information said that the price should be between $ 5999 and $ 7999. That would be an absolute luxury Moog Music.
Moog One Informations From Gearslutz
“Ok this is copied directly from my personal email from my rep who is a senior rep, and personal friend of mine: Oh, it’s cooler than that! So glad I can actually spill some details for you now”
It’s polyphonic, and comes in 8- and 16-voice versions. (Moog has not only set us up as the earliest dealer with stock (around mid-August), but we’ll have an exclusive until they launch with other retailers in September. And they’ve also promised us a number of low-serial-number units (2-10) on each unit, though this does run an extra $500 (and also gets you a letter from Mike Adams, and a signed photo by the techs who built it). Sounds incredible, and check this out!

Still not sure when we’ll have it up on the website, but we are taking orders, if you’re interested. 8-voice version is $5999.00, and the 16-voice version is $7999.00.
At that price I think I’ll stick with the Korg Prologue!
I knew there were 2 models, an 8 and 6 voice, the price and the name. Didn’t know it was 3 oscs per voice, multitimbral and had effects. Thanks! This will become my flagship synth. Looking forward to playing 48 osc unison leads! Will go nicely with my 008, code, pro6, ob6 etc. I’m glad it’s pricey, keeps it exclusive. Who would bother paying ridiculous prices for ageing polys when u can buy one new that’s got more oscs and voices?
If it’s true then it must be the best synthesizer of all times!
Putting “One” in the name of a polyphonic synth seems somewhat counterintuitive. Just sayin’…
