Learning Modular Synthesis: Moog Mother-32

Moog Mother-32 with patch cablesBought a Moog Mother-32 semi-modular as your introduction to modular synthesis? Then this course was designed for you. In it, I:

  • show how to connect the Mother-32’s power, audio, and MIDI
  • review the Mother’s major sections
  • lead you through creating a typical patch that will act as a good starting point for your exploration
  • dive into each synthesis section in more detail
  • demonstrate how to record and edit sequences
  • share some live performance and advanced editing tips, including holds, rests, glides, and repeats (ratcheting)
  • mount the Mother-32 into a typical Eurorack case
  • expand the Mother’s capabilities with common modules including a second envelope generator and oscillator, mixers, and splitters

A list of all 18 movies in this 2-hour course is shown at the bottom of this page. Here is the introductory video:
