Moog Multimoog

Moog Multimoog Image

The Multimoog was the big brother to the Micromoog. It's a classic monophonic synth that features 2 oscillators, a ribbon controller, variable waveforms, flexible sample and hold, LFO, aftertouch (for pitch, VCF, or LFO rate) and a great sounding 24dB Moog filter. Like the Micromoog, the Multimoog was designed to be a cheaper alternative to the Minimoog. It is used by Underworld.

Also not mentioned is it has great sounding oscillator sync. Great features added onto the micromoog concept but lacking the noise modulation source that the micromoog had. Overall great sounding synth.

Also not mentioned, is that it had a VARIABLE waveshape. When dialed "in-between" square and saw, for example, you could get sounds that you couldn't get anywhere else, even when mixing waveforms. Sold mine a few years ago right before the "analog and Vintage" gold rush.

I just learned from Roger Dumas, keyboardist in the band Lipps Inc, that all the synth sounds used in Funkytown came from a Multimoog.

Pretty sure this synth was used to produce that "reedy sounding" synth lead solo on the Steve Winwood classic, "While You See a Chance" (1980). Sounds like Pulse waves using PWM and filter mods to produce the classic phasing effect.

I own two of these great synthesizers. They are capable of doing all of the things a Minimoog does and some more (I know-I owned one), including aftertouch and sample and hold. Only 1000 of these were ever made and they were the last synth Bob Moog himself designed with his original Moog Music company just after the business sold to Norlin. Also, Bob Moog designed these synths (Multi and Micro) to be modular to a certain degree since that was his mainstay at first. You can connect two or more together to create more powerful synthesizers. How about a Minimoog with 4 oscillators and twice the modulation power of a normal Mini? I have that with my two Multi's. Very cool board capable of all sorts of sounds. I know there are less than the original 1000 multi's left, since I have seen a couple of Ebay auctions for parts from an old one. Grab one if you can!
