Arturia, in partnership with Bob Moog, have made the reproduction of one of the most famous series of synthesizers: Moog Modular.
Because it is modular, the Moog Modular V offers endless possibilities for synthesis.
9 oscillators, 3 filter slots, 2 LFOs, 6 envelopes, VCAs, mixers, triggers, a 3x8 step-sequencer .... etc.
TAE, standing for True Analog Emulation, is a new technology developed by Arturia, enabling the digital reproduction of analog circuits. The implementation of TAE in Moog Modular V results in:
aliasing-free oscillators, at no extra CPU cost.
better reproduction of analog oscillators: the condensers' unload and the oscillators' instability are simulated, helping to reproduce a typical warm sound.
very accurate reproduction of the legendary Moog 24 dB low-pass filter.
implementation of soft clipping, i.e. reproduction of the filters' current limiting function.
The Moog Modular V comes loaded with more than 400 presets made by a selection of the most talented sound designers.

Dr. Robert Moog says:
"Arturia's Moog Modular V is a high quality computer emulation of the analog modular synthesizer that Moog Music originally introduced.
Traditional front panel controls and switches are clearly and accurately displayed, while virtual patch cordscan be plugged in or removed with the click of the mouse. The basic audio generating and modifying functions are instantly available, and so are envelope generators, LFO's, and other traditional control functions. The Modular V offers important contemporary features like MIDI, easy loading and saving of patches, and polyphonic tone generation. With the Modular V installed in your computer, you can develop a wide range of modular synth effects, and then program or play them as you wish.I am delighted that Arturia's Moog Modular V is adding a new dimension to an instrument tradition that has a special meaning to so many musicians."
