The Moog Mother-32 Sound Studio is a Complete Analog Synthesis Studio in a Box - Everything You Need to Start Patching Today

Ready to take the next step in your analog synthesis journey? The Moog Sound Studio has you covered. Moog Sound Studio is an all-inclusive bundle of semi-modular synthesizers and accessories created to provide users with all of the equipment, cables, accessories, and educational tools needed to enter the world of analog synthesis for the first time or to continue to explore sound in an immersive new way. All you need is your own headphones or personal speaker and you're ready to get started.

Moog's Mother-32 and DFAM synthesizers are a perfect pairing to anchor any electronic studio. Mother-32 is a versatile performance and production synthesizer with a powerful step sequencer and 64 slots of sequence memory. Its classic Moog synth voice delivers raw analog sound, deep Moog bass, and soaring synth leads, forming an excellent complement to DFAM's rich analog rhythms and percussive patterns. Equally impressive on their own, these synths become truly magical when combined into a single system. By patching Mother-32 and DFAM together, a symbiotic relationship is formed that unlocks new capabilities and empowers new ideas.

Along with a duo of semi-modular analog synthesizers, each Moog Sound Studio includes a personal stereo summing mixer with 3-way power distribution to provide flexible signal routing and power your entire system conveniently from a single power supply. Also included are a series of guided exercises, exploration games, experimental patch sheets, imaginative studio art, and more to outfit your studio and take your synthesis skills to the next level. And of course, all of the cables and accessories needed to connect everything are included as well! Moog Sound Studio takes the magical environment and hands-on learning experience of Moog installations found at events around the world and presents them in a way that empowers you to explore synthesis with joy and confidence from the comfort of your own home or studio. This is an exciting time to be a part of the growing synth community. The Moog Sound Studio is here to provide a meaningful electronic experience that informs, inspires, and nurtures synthesists at any point in the creative journey.


What's In the Box?

Mother-32: Mother-32 is an intuitive and expandable semi-modular synthesizer that adds raw analog sound, powerful sequencing, and extensive interconnectivity to any creative, electronic, or modular ecosystem. Mother-32 Excels at: Classic analog bass and leads, and powerful step-sequencing with pattern memory.

DFAM: DFAM (Drummer From Another Mother) is a semi-modular analog percussion synthesizer that empowers an expressive hands-on approach to percussive pattern creation. DFAM excels at: Rich electronic drum patches and organic analog sequencing that breathes.

Personal Stereo Summing Mixer and Instrument Cables: This 4-input analog summing mixer (1/4" IN, 1/8" stereo OUT) features selectable mono or stereo configurations for versatile routing options, and the built-in 3-way power distribution hub supplies power throughout your Moog Sound Studio conveniently from a single power supply. The included instrument cables come in lengths and colors to compliment the system and reduce clutter.

2-Tier Rack Kit: Conveniently stack both synthesizers and the summing mixer together as one connected system to maximize studio space and orient instruments vertically for optimal interconnectivity.

Cable Organizer and Custom Patch Cable Set: The included patch cable organizer connects to the two-tier rack or mounts directly to any wall, keeping patch cables neat and orderly for a hassle-free workflow. A custom set of patch cables has been selected in lengths, colors, and quantities to maximize system patchability.

Guided Exercises, Exploration Games, and Experimental Patch Sheets: Learning synthesis doesn't have to be intimidating! Included games and educational materials allow the player to explore at their own pace while enjoying the journey. Developed with artists who know these instruments best, these detailed and fun exercises are designed to accelerate your synthesis experience by exploring new skills to support your ongoing synthesis practice - A perfect jumping-off-point for beginners or source of inspiration for the seasoned pro.

Studio Art: All original artwork, created by Jim Stoten (M32/DFAM) and Philip Lindeman (SUBH/DFAM), has been thoughtfully designed to aid users in the exploration of new imaginative worlds.
