Moog Moogtonium

   (0 reviews)

The Moogtonium was build by Robert Moog on commission from Max Brand. An avant-garde composer living in the USA wanted his own version of the Mixtur-Trautonium and worked with Moog to develop the system between 1965 and 1968.

The system Moogtonium was based on the then brand new Moog System Modular components along with a number of custom modules that were created just for the project. While the system did not meet Brand's original specification, it was sent back to Moog for more refinement until the two went their separate ways.
