Moog once again revives the Model 10, its first compact modular synth

Moog has brought back its groundbreaking Model 10 synth for the second time, and you might have a better chance of owning this one. The “compact” modular device has gone back into production and is available worldwide from specialist retailers. It’s also a slight improvement over the limited 2019 version, with an updated on-board power supply (friendlier to non-US musicians), a revised back, and more reliable calibration.

You can expect 11 analog modules and three oscillators from the 900 series. The company had not disclosed any pricing at the time of this writing. We asked for more details. With that in mind, the 2019 Model 10 started at $9,950. This is intended for developers who want to fully utilize the synthesizer in their productions and performances.

Last but not least, it is another opportunity to deal with an important instrument. The original Model 10, released in 1971, was the first relatively compact modular synthesizer – before that, it wasn’t uncommon to see huge modular arrays that didn’t always fit in studios, let alone on stage. Moog’s smaller design made the technology more accessible and shaped the early days of electronic music. Wendy Carlos used it to create her milestone album Turned on stream (still not available to stream, we’d add), as does Isao Tomita with dancing snowflakes.
