The Moog Multimoog is a dual oscillator analog synthesizer manufactured by Moog Music from 1978–81. Derived from the earlier Micromoog (internally, it consists of a stock Micromoog circuit board with the extra circuitry on a second board), the Multimoog was intended to be a less expensive alternative to the Minimoog. It nevertheless had some advanced features which the Minimoog did not—most notably, it was one of the earliest synthesizers to feature aftertouch capability.

Key features include:

44-note monophonic keyboard with aftertouch

ribbon-type pitch bend controller

"glide" (portamento)

2 voltage-controlled oscillators with waveform continuously adjustable from sawtooth, through square, to narrow pulse

oscillator sync

noise source

24db/octave Moog transistor-ladder lowpass voltage controlled filter

dedicated low frequency oscillator with triangle, square, and random waveforms

extensive modulation routing options, including sample & hold, audio-frequency modulation of the VCF for quasi-ring modulation, waveform

sweep/quasi-pulse width modulation, and more

2 AR (attack/release) envelope generators with switchable percussive/sustaining profiles

external audio input for processing instruments, vocals, etc.

external control voltage and trigger inputs/outputs for interfacing with other synthesizer equipment
