Moog Werkstatt-Ø1 DIY synth now available to buy
Originally available exclusively to those who took up the Engineer VIP Package at Moogfest 2014, Moog's Werkstatt is a build-it-yourself single oscillator synth. Now, thanks to much online clamouring, it's being put on sale, albeit in "limited quantities".
Officially known as the Werkstatt-Ø1, the synth comes as a no-soldering kit, and assembly is said to be extremely simple. There's no MIDI, but you can control it from a keyboard that has CV out on it.
At $329 the Werkstatt-Ø1 is certainly an affordable Moog, but the problem for many is likely to be getting hold of one. As things stand, the synth is only going to be sold by a select group of US dealers - you can find out which ones (and check out the full specs) on the Moog website.
- Even a novice should be able to build the Werkstatt-Ø1.
- The Werkstatt-Ø1 is patchable.
