I found last night’s Bach-style MIDI synth riff to be a great way to experiment with the sounds I can build from the Moog Mother-32. With the MIDI instructions looping from my computer into the synth, I could manually adjust knobs, switches, and patch cables to my heart’s content - each variation producing incredible new sounds over my Rokit-6 studio monitors…
I’ve picked some of the most interesting results to share with you tonight.

Each variation is a tiny window into the sounds available in the Mother-32. It certainly has a consistent ‘sound’, but within that sound are an infinite gradation of possibilities.
I included the original version as the first track and saved the best variation for last, with a couple special twists. Check them all out - it’s a quick listen!
Track 6 Note: I don’t have much practice using a sidechain compressor (much less automating one, as I tried in this track), so it’s a bit heavy-handed. Still, makes me want to dance - and, I’ve never heard quite the same sounds before - and that’s what counts.
“What artists need is an endless resource, full of rough edges and dimly-lit nooks and crannies that one can explore as one sees fit.” - Dr. Robert Moog –
