The Moog Werkstatt synth is a specially made synth designed to go in tandem with the VIP Engineer Ticket (which included full access to all events and two 3hr workshops to build the Werkstatt) to the currently running Moogfest in Asheville NC. Workshop participants get to make their very own Werkstatt synth - all I can say is lucky them!
The Werkstatt is designed to facillitate education and exploration of the electronics behind the Moog. Originally Bob Moog started in business making Theremin Kits, so its very much part of the company's roots. We caught up with Steve Dunnington, who's been a major part of the development of the Werkstatt. Obviously first question - when can we get one?
Watch the video and find out!
Apologies - the sound deteriorates during the intervew, but its still intelligable .
Steve mentioned the highly hackable circuit board - he kindly let us have a high resolution image of it:
