The Final Emerson Moog Modular System

On June 23 & 24, Moog Music will demonstrate the Emerson Moog Modular System live at Sweetwater's Gearfest 2017. One final Emerson Moog Modular System will be built this year (only 2 others exist in the world, excluding Keith's original unit and Moog's prototype). The final EMMS will be available exclusively through Sweetwater.

 

In the summer of 1970, Moog Music shipped a model I-CA synthesizer to Keith Emerson. Over many years, Emerson and Bob Moog formed a lifelong friendship, working in close collaboration  on the commission of dozens of custom modules to complete Keith's megalithic Moog.

In 2011, we began work to research and build a faithful recreation of Keith Emerson's one-of-a-kind Moog modular. Three years later, we announced the project and debuted the first prototype (after a careful A/B listening test from Emerson). 

The Emerson Moog Modular System is comprised of hand-crafted Moog modules built from the original circuit designs and are true recreations of the originals, utilizing the same hand assembly methods used in the Moog Music factory in 1969.

The modules in the EMMS are built just as the originals were, by hand-stuffing and hand-soldering components to circuit boards, and using traditional wiring methods. Even the front panels are photo-etched aluminum (a rare process now), which is the classic and durable look of vintage Moog modules.
