A celebration of Moog history supported by rarities from the archives of The Bob Moog Foundation...
Produced from 1981-1985 the Moog Source was a 37 key, dual oscillator, monophonic synthesizer featuring Moog’s classic low-pass filter. The Source was one of the first synths to use the parameter access system, this ment that rather than having one knob per function the parameter to edit was selected on the Source’s flat panel membrane keyboard and then edited via a single data wheel. In addition to the unique UI the Moog Source was the first Moog synth to offer savable patches and factory presets. The Source had 16 internal slots for patches, but also had a cassette-tape jack that could be used to store data externally, this allowed seldom used pre-sets to be archived freeing up room for new user generated patches. 7000 Sources were produced during its four year run and it found its way into the hands of such artists as Depeche Mode, Tangerine Dream, Gary Numan, Devo, New Order, Ultravox, The Cars, Phish, and King Crimson.
