Munich-based SYNTH-WERK – a maker of MU modular systems, based on classic Moog designs – has announced two new systems, the SW 1P-2022 and SW 2P-2022.

SYNTH-WERK modules are clones of vintage Moog designs, manufactured using the same hand-assembly methods used in the Moog Music factory in Trumansburg, NY in the ’60s. The modules are built by hand-stuffing and hand-soldering components to circuit boards, using traditional wiring methods and vintage NOS (new old stock) components.


The SYSTEM SW-1P-2022 is based on the Moog 1P, and features two cabinets and a control keyboard.

Here’s what Synth-Werk has to say about it:

“LEGENDARY SOUND – MADE EVEN BETTER

Without a doubt the sonic character of the original 1P system relies deeply on the unique qualities of the most legendary 901ABB oscillator bank accompanied by a single 901, which put together celebrated their reincarnation in form of our highly acclaimed SW901A, SW901B and independent SW901 modules.

Instead of performing a mere replication of the initial layout, we carefully redesigned the 901’s conductive track and component placing from scratch, solving common thermic stability issues of the archetype in the process to achieve the unrivaled tuning stability this unique oscillator deserved in the first place.

A MATTER OF TASTE AND IMAGINATION
Despite the initial version from 1969 we added a SW960 Sequencer which was an option back then. By gaining one open slot in the reconfiguration process, you also might like to add another sought after classic to your system, for example the SW962 Sequential Switch or our celebrated recreation of the famous Bode Ring Modulator SW6401M.

YOUR PERSONAL SYSTEM – YOUR PERSONAL WAY

With the modules SW907, SW907A and SW914 readily available from our SYNTH- WERK portfolio, you are also able to choose from three different fixed filter bank types to blend perfectly with your system. If you are looking into any further options and custom configurations, take your time and get in touch with us for an elaborate expert advice on creating the SW-1P-2022 of your dreams.

KEYBOARD AND SEQUENCING OPTIONS – THE PERFECT SYMBIOSIS

Note that the included CV and trigger routing module got specially designed for the SW-1P-2022, suporting CV1 and CV2, GATE1 and GATE2 connections coupled to a backside mounted socket reserved for a duophonic Moog style keyboard. On the right hand side of the frontpanel you can further choose between CV-signals and trigger-signals deriving from one connected keyboard or alternatively the IN1/IN2-sockets by utilizing the three inte- grated rocker switches. A third input can be used for connecting the installed 960 Sequencer, or any other CV signal. By the way, all three incoming signals are al- lowed to be sent directly to the CP3 mixer units. Use the third integrated rocker switch to easily choose between trigger 1 and 2 or two external trigger-signals to be routed to the SW993 CP module.
