Moog One Review and Tutorial

ONE is Moog’s only in-production polyphonic synth – it’s tri-timbral – meaning you can use its voices to play one of up to three completely different sounds at the same time, it’s an analog synth with either 8 to 16 voices, and it’s programmable, meaning you can save presets on it. It has over 200 knobs and buttons on the panel and a big screen for many more additional parameters, and it also has built-in digital effects by Moog and Eventide, which is always a better option than using external effects, because the effects can become part of a preset.

Moog One isn’t cheap, small or portable – so is it worth it? In this video I take a look at what makes it special, the pros and the cons, including a detailed tutorial running through all the major features:
