In a limited run of 25 units, Moog Music Inc is reissuing its classic ‘cabinet’ IIIc synthesizer. The mammoth unit was made famous by Wendy Carlos and Giorgio Moroder and pre-dated Moog’s most famous synth: the Minimoog.
Made up of modules that create or control sound, the huge synths are part of a very limited run and each one will built using the original documentation, art and circuit board files.
Behringer displayed the finished prototype of its Minimoog clone over the weekend, whilst setting up shop at Berlin's Superbooth tech conference.
It was one of three new products displayed by the boutique synth company at the show, with the clone set to come in at a relatively affordable $399. A genuine Minimoog will set you back a whopping $3,749.
Behringer are one step closer to the release of their controversial Minimoog Model D clone.
Pictures posted on the Gearslutz forum show a working prototype of the Model D clone circuit board, where you can roughly see the positioning of the knobs that are associated with the original’s control panel.
Whilst Behringer are moving fast with their clone of the legendary synth, they also state that whilst they have a working motherboard it will be some time before the actual product will hit the shelves — it's likely to land by the end of the year.
Moog has created an ultra-rare drum machine which will be available to just 100 lucky synth fans and titled Drummer From Another Mother.
The synth will be the end result of the Engineer VIP workshop held at this year’s Moogfest, but a place in the course will set you back a cool 1500 bucks.
The workshop is set to be taught by top Moog engineers and will consist of two three-hour sessions across two days with no previous experience in synth building required.
Moog have announced they're discontinuing their Minimoog Voyager XL synth this week, bringing an end to the Voyager line as a whole.
The Voyager XL was launched seven years ago to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Minimoog, whilst the original Voyager was the last synthesizer to be fully designed by the company’s founder and namesake, Bob Moog, before his death in 2005.
The axing of the Voyager XL will signal the end of the line for the Voyager models, which also included the Voyager RME and Voyager Old School.
Moog has to be the defacto name when it comes to synths and sounds, everyone loves a little bit of Moog action be it hardware or software.
Now Expanding Sound has created a selection of Ableton Instruments that are based on the MemoryMoog, another one of Moog’s classic synths that can be used with Ableton’s Live software.
Following last week's news that the legendary Minimoog Model D would be returning to production, fans of the classic synth range are getting a second helping of Moog-y goodness.

Forty-six years after it was first released, Moog Music Inc. are happy to announce that the Minimoog Model D is back in production. Handcrafted just like the orginal Minimoog D the new synth is available for pre-order now.
First released in the early 1970s, the Minimoog Model D was the world’s first portable synthesizer. The instrument gained worldwide acclaim for combining the colossal sound of Moog’s large-format modular synthesizers with the accessibility of pre-wired modules.
