Moog Model 10 Modular Synthesizer Back in Production – Synthtopia


Moog Music has announced that they have returned the Model 10 modular synthesizer to production and it is now available built-to-order. The Model 10 was reissued previously as a limited edition in 2019.

The 2022 Moog Model 10 reissue is intended to be a faithful reissue of the original, closely following the original design and using the same hand-soldered construction that was used in the ’70s. The individual modules that make up each new Model 10 are engineered and manufactured just as they were over 50 years ago, using traditional wiring methods. Each module is then tested, finished with an aluminum panel, and placed into a custom cabinet.

Updates In The 2022 Model 10 Build:

  • An updated onboard power supply now supports a broader range of voltages, including 100v, 120v, 220v, and 240v. For users outside the US, this allows you to power your synthesizer without the need for an external step up/down transformer.
  • The system’s redesigned rear panel accommodates an updated main power switch, power lamp, power inlet, grounding lug, and voltage selector switch.
  • Model 10 now has improved calibration and tuning reliability, with this current production model holding tighter calibrations with little variance.

Here’s what they have to say about Moog Model 10:

“Moog Music’s illustrious Model 10 modular synthesizer, developed by Bob Moog and originally released in 1971, is now back in production and available to order worldwide.

One of Moog Music’s most beloved legacy instruments, the Model 10 modular synthesizer, is officially back in production at the Moog factory in Asheville, North Carolina. This re-issue of the instrument follows a limited-time production run in 2019 that helped enliven the large-format modular space and introduce these systems to a whole new generation of synthesists.

Today’s Model 10 is a faithful recreation of the first compact modular synthesizer model created by Dr. Bob Moog in 1971, all the way down to its hand-soldered electronic circuits. The fully analog instrument is made up of 11 discrete analog modules, including the 907 Fixed Filter Bank, revered for its vast sound shaping and timbral possibilities, and three 900 Series oscillators, the foundational sound behind works like Wendy Carlos’s Switched-On Bach and Isao Tomita’s Snowflakes Are Dancing.

The predecessor to the Model 15, the Model 10 design focuses on purity of sound, speed, and simplicity while providing the enormous sonic depth and dimension found only in a vintage Moog modular synthesizer.”

Making Music With A Moog Modular

Moog also shared a new video, featuring Berlin-based producer and mixing engineer Hannes Bieger, who has been creating techno and house music with his System 35 for years:

“What I love about modular is how you can incorporate ‘happy accidents’ in the workflow, especially when tossing around patterns on the analogue sequencers,” Hannes shared. “I love the physicality of the process, actually standing in front of this big instrument rather than sitting in front of a computer screen. Finally, there is a sonic world difficult to achieve with conventional synths. I love, for example, how I can create stereo sounds with a pair of VCAs and AM modulation as a part of the actual synthesis, not with external effects.”

Pricing and Availability

The Moog Model 10 is available built-to-order with a street price of about $12,000.
