5U Modular: An Inside Look

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


Bob Moog introduced the world’s first voltage-controlled subtractive synthesizer in 1963 and soon after, his company pioneered the commercial production of this new class of instrument.

Join Rosser Douglas, Tim Johnston and Nathaniel Murphy of Moog Music Inc as they present a detailed discussion on the design, manufacturing, and functionality of a 5U Modular Synthesizer.
