New Moog vocoder synth teased for Moogfest 2019

Moogfest 2019 is nearly upon us and in what has become standard practice for Moog, the Asheville firm has announced the product that will be the subject of the Engineer Workshop at this year’s event.

In the above video we can clearly see the new instrument performing alongside former Moogfest debutants. Housed in the now familiar 60HP, Eurorack-compatible format and sporting a gooseneck mic is a vocoder synth, which will be built during the four-day event which runs from 25-28 April.

As is tradition, attendees of the workshop are invited to build an unreleased product, which has seen the birth of the Mother-32, DFAM and Subharmonicon in previous years.

Tickets for the Engineer Workshop are priced at $1500 (plus fee), with the workshop itself conducted in several sessions over two days.

We’ve no more information on this new vocoder right now, but hope to bring you news on that soon. For more details on the event, check out the Moogfest website.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
