Moog Micromoog

   (1 review)

The Moog Micromoog is a single-oscillator monophonic synthesizer. Considered a budget synth alternative to the Minimoog with unique features like a ribbon controller and an early form of something like MIDI called Open System that allowed Moog synthesizers to connect and play together. It features 32 keys with audio processing through it's filter and VCA.

You may have thought of owning a Moog synthesizer someday. But. you may also have thought it costs too much, or that it's hard to play.

Wrong. Especially now, with the advent of the Micromoog. It's easy to buy. And easy to play. $695 suggested list. And it's every inch a Moog. With that patented, "fat" Moog sound, and all the smooth, playable features people buy Moons for. Plus a few new ones.

Like the built-in ribbon controller. Slide your finger up the ribbon and the pitch slides up. Slide it down, the pitch slides down. And the sound snaps back to the key you're playing the moment you re-lease your finger. It's a simple little work of genius that lets you duplicate the blues guitar bend, the trombone slide. or the violin vibrato, not to mention your own unique expressions.

Pitch drift is a thing of the past with this synthesizer because the Micromoog won't go out of tune. It has an oscillator control
circuit that maintains it-self precisely at 130° F (55° C). No matter what the temperature is on stage.

But the Moog features don't stop here.

There's "noise" control for making drums, cymbals, steam engines and thunderstorms. Fully variable wave shape to get right down to the harmonic structure of sound. Rapid filter modulation for dinner bells, church bells, tubular bells. An eight octave range. Built-in sample and hold. Arid a lot more you'll discover when you visit your Moog dealer.

All this brings us to the most important point - freedom of expression.

And all for $695 suggested list.

Thanks much for posting this, whoever and whenever! (Now that I've posted my review, I see 'twas Mr. Johnson who provided this, thanks.  I couldn't find your name anywhere on this site though, hmmm.)   I've had mine for over 25 years, and I've never seen the manual before.
