The Moog Source analog synthesizer is a monophonic Z80 microprocessor-controlled analog synthesizer that was made by Moog Music from 1981 to 1985. The Moog Source was Moog’s first synthesizer to offer patch memory storage.

The Source, for better or worse, used a flat-panel membrane keyboard to replace the standard buttons, knobs and sliders and featured colorful panel graphics. Unfortunately, the membrane panels are a weak point on the Source, and tend to malfunction over time.

Because of this, the Moog Source offers a relatively inexpensive option for classic Moog sounds.

  • Two ADSR envelope generators that can be set in single or multi trigger modes, one for the VCF and one for the VCA.

  • The Source also features a rudimentary sequencer.
