New Moog: Werkstatt Analog Synthesizer

Moog's answer to the new breed of affordable analogs?      20/04/14

New Moog: Werkstatt Analog Synthesizer

Moogfest have released this sneak peak image of a new analog synth from Moog, the Werkstatt. From the image we can deduce that this is simple single voice mono synth, with some interesting features; note the breakout patch bay on the right-hand side, PWM and a neat little button keyboard.

Although at first look this does seem like Moogs answer to the Volcas, Microbrute and now Akai's Rhythm Wolf, I wouldnt get your hopes up too soon as one of the ticket packages for Moogfest is the VIP Engineers Package. This includes two 3-hour synth building workshops with Moog engineers, where you will have the opportunity to build, modify and take home an unreleased Moog synth. We can also see from the image that the synth also says Moogfest 2014 on it!

All of this leads very obviously to my conclusion that this is not going to hit production, however more new synths is always a good thing, even if they are in the hands of a lucky few... I could be completely wrong, could this be a release in kit form? Or a dirt cheap analog?
