Manufacturer Description:

The Moog Mother-32 is the first semi-modular tabletop and Eurorack
synthesizer from Moog. It is a distinctive analog instrument that adds
raw analog sound, sequencing and extensive interconnectivity to any
electronic or modular ecosystem. This expansive new live performance and
production instrument is handcrafted in Asheville, NC and has been
meticulously designed to provide musicians with a diverse array of
creative tools to inspire new music, unique sound and endless sonic
exploration.



Mother-32 comes secured in a rugged extruded aluminum skiff with wood
sides and features a voltage
controlled 32-step sequencer with 64 sequence locations, definitive Moog
low pass and high pass Ladder Filter, 2 voltage controlled mixers, a
classic Moog oscillator with dual outputs, wide-range LFO with
audio-rate modulation capability, MIDI input and MIDI to CV conversion,
white noise, a modular patchbay with 32 patchpoints for extended
synthesis complexity and an assignable CV jack with 16 assignable
sources.
