Developing the Moog Sound Studio Experience
When Moog introduced its Mother-32 semi-modular analog synthesizer in 2015, the instrument helped introduce a whole new community to the limitless world of modular synthesis. Its family of semi-modular synthesizers has since expanded to become a full-fledged ecosystem of powerful, approachable, and inspiring electronic instruments (Mother-32, DFAM, Grandmother, Matriarch, and Subharmonicon).
The creative potential of these instruments led to opportunities for multi-sensory installations at public events worldwide, inviting visitors to discover synthesis through experiences that encourage them to get lost in their surroundings. Through these activities, Moog’s employee-owners quickly learned that users with any level of experience can feel comfortable and excited about sound exploration with the right tools, guidance, and creative space.
Along with these learnings, Moog’s development of the complete sonic exploration station that is Moog Sound Studio is a direct response to years of feedback from the growing synthesizer community. The all-in-one solution for beginning or continuing a journey in professional-quality sound design includes everything the creator needs for an immersive, self-guided experience from any home or studio.
Moog Sound Studio, a new synthesizer experience from Moog Music, includes all the tools and creative inspiration you need to embark on an immersive sonic adventure. Designed for beginner and seasoned synthesists alike, Moog Sound Studio introduces a uniquely comprehensive approach to exploring modular synthesis.
A Complete Synthesizer Studio Package (Just Add Headphones)
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 voice delivers raw analog sound, deep Moog bass, and soaring synth leads, which complement DFAM’s rich analog rhythms and percussive patterns.
For a more experimental journey with unexpected textures and sounds, choose the magical combination of Subharmonicon and DFAM. Subharmonicon is a rich sonic kaleidoscope of six-tone subharmonic chord shapes and polyrhythmic sequences, while DFAM presents an inspiring approach to drum synthesis and rhythmic pattern creation.
While each instrument is uniquely powerful alone, pairing two together creates an experience that will inspire you to create new sounds, unlock novel behaviors, synchronize patterns, and explore endless sonic possibilities.
Along with the chosen duo of semi-modular analog synthesizers, each Moog Sound Studio includes an audio mixer and power distribution hub, a two-tier rack mount kit, patch cables and a patch cable organizer, guided exercises and patch book, educational materials, games to encourage experimentation, custom artwork designed exclusively for Moog Sound Studio owners, and plenty of creative inspiration.
The perfect foray into Eurorack for those new to modular, as well as a creative tool for experienced synthesists to grow their sound design skills, Moog Sound Studio offers an inviting creative environment and experience for all.

Artist Collaborations: Original Tracks & Visual Artwork
Ever since analog synthesizer pioneer Bob Moog collaborated with composer and educator Herb Deutsch to develop the first Moog modular synthesizer in 1964, artist collaboration has been at the heart of Moog Music’s story.
Moog’s creative team worked with various artists to develop original visuals, characters, learning tools, and tracks to bring the Moog Sound Studio environment to life.
New Compilation EP: Explorations in Analog Synthesis
Explorations in Analog Synthesis is a new seven-song EP created to demonstrate the powerful analog sound and infinite sonic possibilities of both Moog Sound Studio synthesizer combinations.
This genre-bending compilation of original electronic music compositions features a chiptune-inspired head trip from Bonobo, an R&B-influenced synth pop track from Peter Cottontale featuring Jamila Woods, an ethereal vocal collage from Julianna Barwick, an evolving psychedelic excursion from Dan Deacon, a driving percussive electronica track from Madame Gandhi, an emotive dark wave song from Martial Canterel, and an industrial-tinged electronic pop track from Ela Minus. Each track was built around the instruments and accessories included in each artist’s Moog Sound Studio of choice: Mother-32 & DFAM or Subharmonicon & DFAM.
Explorations in Analog Synthesis is available to stream for free on Moog’s SoundCloud.
