Along with a duo of semi-modular analog synthesizers, each Moog Sound Studio includes a personal stereo summing mixer with 3-way power distribution to provide flexible signal routing and power your entire system conveniently from a single power supply. Also included is a patch cable organizer, a series of guided exercises, exploration games, experimental patch sheets, imaginative studio art, and more to outfit your studio and take your synthesis skills to the next level. And of course, all of the cables and accessories needed to connect everything are included as well!
Engaging Visuals to Complement Your Journey in Sound
To bring this magical world of analog synthesizers to life visually, illustrators Jim Stoten (Mother-32 & DFAM) and Philip Lindeman (Subharmonicon & DFAM) designed custom artwork in the form of characters, posters, and other interactive objects that accompany each instrument setup.
