Moog updates its best-selling Mother 32 semi-modular synth to firmware 2.0 with new sequencer features, expanded clocking options & more.

The new version features a host of dynamic new features, including multiple sequencer directions (forward, backward, pendulum, random), improved and expanded clocking options, CV-addressed sequencer control, selectable swing intervals, and new pattern change behaviors.

Mother also includes enhancements such as the ability to ignore MIDI clock or start/stop messages, improved LED visual feedback, options to auto-save and write-protect patterns, as well as selectable analog clock input and output resolutions. Firmware v2.0 features a completely rewritten sync and timing engine, which allows for incredibly tight and funky grooves synchronized to any analog clock source. At first look, a very nice update that brings new creative options into the Moog Mother 32 Synthesizer.

Moog Mother 32 v2

Introduced in 2015, Mother 32 was Moog’s first entry in our ever-growing family of semi-modular analog synthesizers. Combining a flexible analog monophonic voice, robust step-sequencer, and 32-point 3.5mm patchbay for interconnectivity and expandability, Mother-32 is a dynamic standalone instrument that gives synthesists a way to incorporate classic Moog sound into the Eurorack modular world.

Moog Music Mother 32 Firmware 2.0 is available now as a free download.

  1. For me, the ability to ignore MIDI start/stop messages on the internal sequencer is the crown jewel of this excellent firmware update. Everything else is a nice bonus. I stopped using my Mother 32 as much once I realized that I couldn’t play sequences from another device on it without manually stopping the sequencer on the device or hooking up something that filtered out the ‘MIDI Start’ message.

  2. can you explain how I stop the onboard sequencer from working? I guess it’s pretty obvious but can’t figure it out!
