The Moog Werkstatt-Ø1 is a patchable and compact, one oscillator analog synthesizer. What's really amazing about this kit is that there is no soldering required. That's right, the Werkstatt-Ø1 is pretty much ready to go straight out of the box. All you need to do is construct the enclosure around the synthesizer PCB (or don't), plug in a 1/4" audio plug and 12V power and you are good to go!
Each Werkstatt-Ø1 has a variety of interface sections you can use to control the synthesizer, such as:
Putting together your Werkstatt is easy. No soldering is required, and all of the electronic components have been pre-assembled. The only tools you will need are a #1 Phillips screwdriver, and a good pair of scissors. The Werkstatt-Ø1 is an excellent platform for exploring the world of analog synthesizer circuits. A lifetime of experimentation, knob twisting, and sound design awaits.
In the Documents section below you will find many projects from Moog to use in conjunction with your Werkstatt-Ø1. These projects include adding a photocell, volume knob, and pressure sensitive resistor or incorporating pitchblend, dual oscillator, and LFO Rate Quantizer interfaces. There are many more projects to experiment with, check them all out!
Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.
