Moog has announced that at Moogfest 2018, will reveal Grandmother, its new limited-edition semi-modular analog synth keyboard, with a ’60s and ’70s design.

Grandmother features a completely analog sound engine, dual oscillators, based on the Minimoog, classic Moog 4-Pole ladder filter, an extensive modulation section, and onboard spring reverb. Moreover, with the normalized internal routing, it can be played without any patch cables.
