The Moog Werkstatt-Ø1
is a patchable, 100% analog synthesizer whose design is based on classic Moog circuits. Assembly is extremely simple: Any user can quickly build this analog synthesizer with minimal tools and expertise.
It was originally created as a kit, to be the foundation for exclusive “Engineering VIP” workshops at Moogfest 2014. Werkstatt was created to be an educational tool, but it is also a formidable, compact analog synthesizer from Moog.
Analog synthesizers have long had their own maker culture born of curious engineers, physicists and hobbyists who have created and crafted their sounds through electronic experimentation. It is our goal to share our love for learning, music, and electronics by encouraging everyone to create the world they want to hear, one mod at a time.
- The Artiphon multiple instrument — “A guitar is designed to be strummed; piano keys are pressed; drum pads are tapped; violins are bowed. But what if a single instrument could be played with any of these techniques? That’s exactly what we’re creating – one instrument that lets you be the whole band.”
- Seaboard’s innovative piano keyboard — “…a radically new musical instrument that reimagines the piano keyboard as a soft, continuous surface.”
“Through assembly and inspired investigation, the Werkstatt-Ø1 is an excellent platform for exploring the world of analog synthesizer circuits. A lifetime of experimentation, knob twisting, and sound design awaits.”
