Moog One 8 Voice

Needless to say I have been really zoning in on my rig, got past the sticker shock and hype. Now I’m just curious what others have experienced with this, if it’s worth looking into.

Ironically a quest for a Moog monk brought me here initially. My love for sound design got my interest in the Moog One.

Do share your opinions!!

You have to get your hands on one and try it out.

Don’t but it without doing that.

It’s a very divisive synth but those who love it - LOVE it.

Thank you yes I know the groups are all locked so it is quite divisive, that’s a good take on not hearing too much about it.

I have a friend who swears by it, as you said they LOVE it.

Cons: fan noise, meh effects (could be improved with firmware), a more “modern” sound, weight, size, cost

Pros: everything else

Another con: no multi-drive. A very vanilla mix bus

Good call on all of these observations, I concur with the same. Seems like a sound designers dream Moog.

Yes. All your AnalogDreams will come true. It’s taken a while but I’ve grown to love the sound. It’s without a doubt a future classic. Also, the best GUI in the history of modern synths. You might also check out the Quantum, it’s a hybrid but also a beautiful machine of all the modern machines I’ve played.

Ah wonderful, good call I really liked both we seem to be on the same wavelength with these synths. Thanks so much for backing One, to audition and Quantum. Loved the deep dive on Quantum!!

This is really the modern, apples to apples analog synth alternative to the One-8.

Imho, The River is even more rewarding (sonically and overall) than the One-16 (which I owned for about 7 months).


Commonalities;
- both are priced about the same
- both 5-octave Flagship analog polysynths
- both are “Moogs” in that The River incorporates 8 Moog Sources
- same voice count of 8
- both lovely Fatar keyboards
- even though they look very different, they are roughly the same size and weight
- both are being updated periodically through firmware
- both have incredible build quality
- they both offer CV control (TR many more), inserts (TO has more)
- they both have external audio in, but TR has stereo ext in
- both are extremely capable and inviting to play
- both are modern masterpieces
- both are lovable


Differences;
- TR is quad-timbral, TO is tri-timbral
- TO allows for unlimited presets, while TR has more limited preset space
- TR responds to MPE, TO currently doesn’t
- TO has a big center-focused screen, while TR has two very small screens
- TR has a much different approach to effects integration vs TO
- TO has 5 audible fans, while TO has a big and quite heat sink
- TR has individual voice outs, plus 2x stereo, while TO has 2x stereo
- TO sounds very modern, while TR harkens back to vintage style sonics (to me)
- TR is made (assembled) in France, TO is made (assembled) in the U.S.
- TO is available now, TR has a long waiting list
- TR will take more time to learn than TO, which is very straight forward
- TO has a much more involved and expansive mod matrix vs TR
- TR includes a brilliantly implemented Triko (tri chorus) and digital delays/verbs
- TO has nice Eventide fx (that may have some gainstaging and routing issues)

Very cool I appreciate the comparison, really as it’s quite a a lot of money.
I have had the chance to try One out since posting and it sounded nice, I felt it was a bit lacking but perhaps I was expecting more from the manual, Anyway it’s a very interesting synth.

I do wonder if it would compliment the P6 what I liked about One were the textures but thus open to any suggestions. Was a bit surprised it didn’t produce the greatest bass sounds but perhaps it was limited time.

Good to hear all this from the owner of both, I had kept some Vermona and MFB in mind as well, whole other thing.

Thanks again!

Oh I love the Prophet 6 it has been acquired! Still it’s probably going to end up being my favorite synth, obviously limited but it’s my favorite and very consistent!
