Moog reveal first new polyphonic analog synth in 35 years with mini-documentary

08 October 2018, 15:26 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

The mini-documentary sees Mark Ronson, Dev Hynes, Ryuichi Nakamoto and more give the Moog One synth a try.

Described by Moog as a synth with "nearly unlimited sonic potential", the new Moog One polysynth is the first to be created in 35 years.

The polysynth is tri-timbral, meaning it can effectively host three synths and play them at one time across one keyboard.

Moog's new mini-documentary welcomes Jeff Bhasker, Suzanne Ciani, Chick Corea, Mike Dean, Robert Glasper, Dick Hyman, Dev Hynes, Mark Mothersbaugh, Mark Ronson, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Dr. Lonnie Smith, and Paris Strother to test out the new instrument.

The description underneath the 20-minute film explains the concept further, "Shot on both 8mm film and contemporary digital video, the film is a modern re-imagining of the original 1976 demo video for the Polymoog, Moog’s first polyphonic synthesizer."

With so many creative opportunities lying within the instrument, Moog have priced the eight-voice model at $5,999 and the 16-voice synth at $7,999. Find all the features on the synth over at Music Radar.

Moog have also just relaunched their website, which will now host a live stream of the factory during working hours. Find out more.
