An Instant Classic
Iccapod, 20.02.2019
I was looking at either this or the Sub 37 (I actually ended up with both, but that's another story)

I loved the idea of having access to the old modular circuits because let's face it a big Moog modular will only be a dream for most of us.

The one thing that struck me about the grandmother is the immediacy and playability of the synth. Everything feels like it's where it should be and the keybed is so very nice to play. Dare I say one of my favourites. The build quality is top notch and comparing it to my old Moog Rogue in a similar form factor it's like night and day. The Rogue is cheap and plastic whereas the Grandmother is heavy, solid and feels like no expense has been spared. Two criticisms on the build, I would have like to see bigger toggle switches. Not a big problem though. I would have also liked an IEC power supply as opposed to a power brick with IEC connection. Not a big problem but I'd prefer a universal option that are easy to come by.

In terms of sound this thing sounds HUGE!!! It's that classic Moog sound in the lows and can soar when it wants too all passed through a butter filter. I'm mainly using it for basses so I'm getting lots of dirty sequences and arpeggios from it. The mixer past 12 is just gritty deliciousness.

In terms of features It's got all the ingredients a mono synth should have and they've even thrown in a spring reverb. I'm not one for mental modulation so happy enough with the LFO. Sequencer is great, easy to program and 256 notes!

I bought this and a Prophet Rev 2 at the same time and have barely touched the prophet. I can just get where I want to be so quickly with the grandmother but I also feel like it has depths that are as yet unexplored.

For me it's just beautiful. My favourite Moog I've owned so far.

All you will ever need from a synth.
Plantroot, 14.05.2019
I cannot being to describe what I felt the first time I plugged it in and started messing around with it. Two hours have passed by and I found myself mesmerized by the warm and fat sounds that the instrument can so easily produce.
Every module has character and sounds amazing. I produce a lot of music in my home studio and this will go on everything from now on. The bass sounds you can synthesize with Grandmother are by far the best sounds I ever heard. It probably has to do something with the oscillators. You can immediately feel the analog quality and true tone of the instrument. I strongly believe that we humans respond better to this kind of sound and that's why it is so pleasing for us. It's just...natural!
I totally recommend this beautiful instrument to anyone that wants some fat bass sounds and some pristine lead tones.
