Moog Werkstatt Kit Pre-Order


The new Moog Werkstatt is now available for pre-order through Switched On. This synthesizer is being produced in very limited quantities and will only be available for a brief period. The new
Werkstatt synthesizer kits will arrive approximately June 20th-23rd.

Werkstatt Workshop
Switched On is now programming classes and workshops surrounding the world of synthesis, music production, and creativity. On Thursday, July 10th Switched On will be hosting a workshop surrounding assembly, modification, and in-depth review of the Werkstatt synthesizer. Our friend Jake Widgeon from Moog will be in the house and will be discussing the nuances of the Werkstatt. This is a tiny, inexpensive, fully discrete synthesizer voice with tons of room for creative modification. Join us as we explore the possibilities. Sign-up coming soon...

The Werkstatt-Ø1: Moogfest 2014 Kit is a patchable and compact, one oscillator analog synthesizer. It was originally created as a kit, to be the foundation for exclusive “Engineering VIP” workshops at Moogfest 2014. Due to a number of requests, Moog is offering a no-soldering-required version of the Werkstatt-Ø1: Moogfest 2014 Kit in limited quantities.

Assembly is extremely simple: Any user can quickly build an analog synthesizer based on classic Moog circuits, and if desired, study the analog circuits. Werkstatt was created to be an educational tool, but it is also a formidable, compact analog synthesizer from Moog.
