Musicians, producers, and analog synthesizer enthusiasts in need of a low-cost analog synthesizer voice will be thrilled with the Moog Mavis, an all-analog synthesizer kit that delivers the classic sound and quality for which Moog is known. The kit is simple to build, requires no soldering, and includes everything you need. The instrument is standalone or works as a 44 HP Eurorack module in any compatible enclosure. The integrated 24-point patchbay is compatible with all Eurorack modules, especially the Mother-32, DFAM, and Subharmonicon instruments.
The synthesizer features a single, all-analog VCO with a variable saw/square waveform with PWM. The classic low-pass Moog ladder filter helps tame harmonics, while the LFO and ADSR envelope generator provides movement to your sound. The integrated keyboard features glide and keyboard-scaling for unusual tonal options. The Mavis is the first Moog instrument to include a wavefolder, which combines subtractive synthesis with additive wavefolding for tons of personality. Mavis includes a protective cover, patch overlays, and five 6″ patch cords.
Built-In Keyboard with Glide and KB Scaling
As a standalone instrument or as a 44HP Eurorack module, Mavis adds an expressive 1 V/oct controller to any setup with the flexibility to dial in experimental new pitch relationships via the KB scale knob and explore musical intervals that go beyond the established standards.
Full-Range Analog Oscillator
A voltage-controlled oscillator with PWM (pulse-width modulation), waveform mixing, and mod-source mixing, delivers rich harmonic character and motion.
Sculpt your sound with the -24 dB Moog low-pass ladder filter, delivering the sonic power behind the distinct sounds of Moog basslines and leads.
Audio Rate LFO and 4-Stage Envelope Generator
Mavis uses crossfaders in its modulation routing instead of switches, allowing you to blend between a variable shape LFO and four stage envelope generators for interesting and unusual modulation contours.
Wavefolding and Modular Utilities
Mavis features Moog’s first-ever wavefolding circuit, allowing for additive synthesis to sit alongside traditional subtractive synthesis, and features a broad modular utilities section complete with attenuators, offsets, mults, and a flexible DC-coupled mixer.
Patchable Sample and Hold (S+H) Circuit
Generates a random CV pattern that can be patched to modulate other parameters, including setting Mavis into a random-sequencing mode of performance.
Mavis is eager to play along with other voltage-controlled devices (especially with Moog’s other semimodular instruments), and its useful collection of utilities and flexible control voltage routing allow for intricate dialogue between them.
Mavis includes a fitted protective cover for use during studio downtime or for taking your instrument on the go.
