What's a control voltage?
Control voltages are the signals used in analog synthesers (and some effects) to cause changes in parameters. Those parameters could be pitch, timbre, volume, or others.
What's the difference between analog and digital sound?
We could write a book about that. When you watch a movie - you are seeing approximately 30 still pictures per second. Your eyes are fooled into seeing a continuous image. However, you can always tell the difference between the real thing and a movie of the real thing. This is similar to digital audio, where sound is chopped up into samples (instantaneous numerical representations of the strength of a sound). When the samples are reassembled by digital to analog converters, a sound can be heard as a representation of the original sound - today with quite good results.
The Moog name - is it pronouned Mooooooog or Mogue?
Moog is pronounced so it rhymes with vogue.
