New MOOG Mavis - West Coast Style Desktop Kit

Affordable semi-modular      14/06/22

Moog today announced their new MAVIS desktop semi modular synth kit - its following in the footsteps of the Werkstatt which started life as a kit build in workshops at Moogfest. MAVIS comes straight out in kit for and offers some interesting features (see below). There's a single analog VCO with a wavefolder and also an LFO that can also be volt/octave controlled to bring a second oscillator into play.

Moog Mavis

Full list

  • 24-Point Patch Bay: Mavis is eager to play along with other voltage-controlled devices (especially with Moog's other semi-modular instruments: Mother-32, DFAM, Subharmonicon, Grandmother, Matriarch). Its useful collection of utilities and flexible control voltage routing allows for intricate dialogue between them.
  • Full Range Analog Oscillator: Mavis's Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO) with pulse-width modulation (PWM), waveform mixing, and mod source mixing delivers rich harmonic character and motion.
  • Voltage Controlled Filter: Sculpt your sound with the -24dB Moog Low Pass Ladder Filter, delivering the sonic power behind the distinct sounds of Moog basslines and leads.
  • Audio Rate LFO and 4-Stage Envelope Generator: Mavis uses crossfaders in its modulation routing instead of switches, allowing you to blend between a variable shape LFO and 4-stage envelope generator for interesting and unusual modulation contours.
  • Wavefolding and Modular Utilities: Mavis features Moog's first-ever wavefolding circuit, allowing for additive synthesis to sit alongside traditional subtractive synthesis, unlocking sounds not heard from a Moog before. Mavis also features a broad modular utility section complete with attenuators, offsets, mults, and a flexible DC-coupled mixer providing the tools needed for creative patching and sound design.
  • Patchable Sample and Hold (S+H) Circuit: This circuit generates a random CV pattern that can be patched to modulate other parameters, including setting Mavis into a "random sequencing" mode of performance.
  • Protective Cover
  • Mavis includes a fitted protective cover for use during studio downtime or taking your instrument on the go.

Moog MAVIS is available from Dealers worldwide at a price of $349. We hope to be getting our hands on one in due course (customs held ours up)
