Grandmother's semi-modular design ensures that human beings of any skill-level can easily explore and experience the joys and magic of analog synthesis -- start playing immediately with “no patching required”, then explore an infinite sonic playground with Grandmother’s endlessly reconfigurable front panel and analog spring reverb tank.
The first 500 Moog Grandmother synthesizers have already shipped and are available for order today exclusively through Guitar Center. The Moogfest Edition Grandmother includes a special limited edition Moogfest 2018 badge and includes a redeemable vintage denim Moog jacket.
Grandmother’s circuits, spirit, and spring reverb are inspired by the classic Moog Modular Synthesizers designed by Bob Moog during the 60s and 70s. The elegant simplicity and magic of these early circuits are renewed in Grandmother’s semi-modular analog design, resulting in an unrestricted sonic vocabulary that is both beautiful and powerful.
Grandmother also features an “External Audio Input” that invites users to inject sounds from other instruments directly into Grandmother’s analog filter, spring reverb and amplifier circuits -- adding vintage tones and ambience to guitars, drums or vocal signals. In addition, Grandmother includes an easy-to-use arpeggiator and sequencer for added enjoyment and programmable syncopation.
To explore the sonic possibilities and cosmic context of Grandmother, Moog Music visited the Linear Labs studio of artist-composer Adrian Younge (Black Dynamite, Netflix’s Luke Cage). In this video, Younge gives his personal “Thesis On Sound” while incorporating Grandmother into his retro-inspired creative workflow at Linear Labs.
