Synthstuff Moog The Source

 

More studio gearfreaknes: A real paragon of analog synthesis the mighty MOOG THE SOURCE from 1981 (Yes it sais THE before Source).

The first moog synthesizer without knobs for every function, instead it uses a really cool dail that just feels sooo good to turn (its weight and rotation feels chique and professional). You select the synthesizer function with these cool futuristic tip touch buttons all this analog moogness is computer controlled by the thrustworthy Zilog Z80 processor . This thing just sounds like how an old moog should sound juicy thick tearjearking round warm outthere on all frequencies! Extra cool is that it has a sequencer and an obscure arpeggiator that works sort of different then the usual arpeggiator: You just play some notes and if  you hit the first note you played it starts looping those notes, so its basicly more a stepsequencer I guess.

Apart from the arpeggiator and 2 pattern sequencer there are some more obscure performance controls like sample & Hold for pitch and filter (which plays random notes or randomly changes the cut off frequency) and an auto trigger function that just repeats the notes in the speed of the LFO. Owyeah I almost forgot to tell that it has 16 memory slots for patches too…that was a pretty big deal back in 1981

here’s a little multitrack jam demo random noodling and solo’ing all pure Moog The Source with some extra delay for your pleasure:
