In this video we get to know the people and process behind building Moog’s new Grandmother synth, as well as get a taste of what it sounds like.
Like Moog’s Mother-32, Grandmother is a semimodular analog synthesizer. But Grandmother has a few new tricks up her sleeve: a classic spring reverb (we get to see the spring in this video!), two oscillators, faithful reproductions of Moog’s vintage modular components, hard sync, a keyboard and more.
In this video I test the sounds of a few of these new components, as well as get a factory tour for an inside look on how Grandmother is built. Moog relocated Grandmother’s production line from Ashville to Durham for Moogfest.
