The Mother of them all...
20.03.2016
An East Coast style voice with a 32 patch points with a fairly well featured sequencer in the Eurorack format from Moog; that is the M32. At this price point and coming from Moog i think its fair, considering that a standalone sequencer can almost reach its value in price.
It can easily be the stating point to entry the Eurorack format or it could be the center of a small system if this is sort of thing you look for.

The patch points:
It has all the patch points in/outs that you would expect which were already included on its predecessor the the Werkstatt 01, but it adds some that can otherwise be found in individual modules offered by several brands, for example CV MIX act as a VCA/mixer, attenuator (for audio and CV signals), fixed voltage source/offset. A MULT section is also included for sending signal to different destinations. Tempo/clock/run/reset for controlling the sequencer and the most exciting one is Assignable out, which can deliver clocks, accent, variable CV, triggers and more via midi values.


As a personal opinion, the highlight of the M32 is the sequencer which is very hands on and having the patch points away from the knobs and buttons, it makes it very comfortable to play, you always know which octave you are in and the feedback of the sequence is also very good once you get to know it.
Having the Moog filter in the Eurorack format is definitely a plus for many, but i have the feeling that something changed this time when designing this filter, my ears tell me that my Werkstatt's filter delivers a better creamy bass response than the M32, even with a good amount of resonance. But at the end this just a matter of preferences.

The way i use it is next to West coast style modules so that i can get the best of each philosophy and also get all types of synthesis not only subtractive synthesis.

Classic and pretty
Valentin Lukyanov, 09.11.2019
This one is my first synth. And I think it's the best choice for that price. Good synth to learn and understand basics of the analog sound design.
This one with some VST plugins (like Decapitator from Soundtoys) could make really good and fat bassline. Square osc have so much juicy sound. But know, anyone VST synth have a more fuction and there are high probability that you plays with this synth month or two, then your synth wiil collect dust in the corner. If you need some more necessary studio stuffs - just think if you really needed this.

Of the minuses-MIDI connection is periodically knocked down and begins an arbitrary pressing of one note. To get rid of it, you need to start the sequencer and immediately turn it off.Well, keep in mind that one oscillator on a monophonic synth is still a serious minus, since you will not be able to enjoy finding new sounds along with harmonies (if you play piano), and you will not be able to immediately make some unique sound. This synth is more suitable for bass and arpeggio parts, as well as for blending and blending sounds into one ready. In this case, you must clearly understand what You want to do and how to achieve it. Otherwise, synth you quickly get bored and you will be disappointed in its capabilities. If you proffesionalnoy twist synth and continue to stick for an hour or two winding one sound or arpeggio, then you will mix to the result dilei and reverbs, then this synth is what you need. It is convenient to take with you on vacation and twist on it.

Synth sound I've been looking for.
Big Smoke, 24.03.2021
Not much I can add to this. It's a Moog and has that classic Moog sound.
The low pass ladder filter is the stuff of legends. The sound of thousands of LP's from times past. Every time I turn it on, I get lost for hours in its sonic wilderness. ( I have no idea what stars for 'handling' is supposed to mean, it goes around corners pretty will with no understeer)

Amazing portable synth
OskarSomnof, 11.05.2017
This might be one of the best pieces of analogue hardware to invest into. A solid starting point for those interested in analogue modular synthesis as well. It sounds amazing, no complaints in that department :D Mother is capable of producing a wide range of sounds/noises and if you combine that with altering those sounds in post, the opportunities are vast. My only concern is that I'm not sure how sturdy the toggle switches are, they feel like they might break sooner than you might expect. Also having a power on button as opposed to disconnecting the power supply every time would be nice. I get that this synth probably is usually a part of a Eurorack, but for those less rich of us, an ON/OFF button would be great. Overall, a wonderful piece of gear.
