 In details 

Moog

 OSCILLATOR each polyphony voices used special new designed Triangle Core OSCILLATORS VCOs.

The output of each oscillator can be a  mix of the selectable triangle / sawtooth wave, plus a variable-width pulse wave. The rise/fall time and symmetry of the triangle core wave and the reset phase of the sawtooth wave can be shaped (or modulate into the matrix).

Moog Mixer  the internal analog mixer allow to ajust gain of:
-  OSC 1/2/3
-  ing modulator results
-  Noise generator
- external audio source

3 VCO oscillators

- octaves: 32’, 16’, 8’, 4’, 2’ feet
- Beat Frequency at+/- 7Hz

Ring mod + sync

RING MODULATOR with 2 fixed routings:
-1>2    2>3

Special HARD sync (2 + 3 >1)

Dual Noise Generator

-Red+White
 -Red + Purple
-White + Purple
With own Envelope  AD/AR

LFO / EG / FILTER

Filter

FILTER 

2 independent resonant filters per voice that can be chained in serial or parallel mode:

 multimode" State Variable" 12dB/Oct (LPF HPF NOTCH)
- Classic Ladder filter at -24db/oct  but it can be set also at 1/2/3 poles.

LFo

LFO

There are 4 delayed LFOs twith Fade IN / OUT option,  syncable to Midi clock.

The Modulation Matrix allows to modulate quite anything with flexible source/destination matrix system on the LCD panel.

Envelope

Envelope

3  EGs  with Delay-Attack-Hold-Decay-Sustain-Release segment structure.
Special "Loop mode" to repeat any parts of the segments.

Moog One Performance

209 PCM

The machine is Tri-timbral and manages splits, stacks, effects amount. Special Macro modes allow to changes data on 1/2/3 parts at the same time.


41,7 kHz rate

Each part features also a programmable arpeggiator and a handy  64 steps sequencer.

16 bits resolution

Settable stealing/sharing / priority voice modes. Special massive stack of 48 voices in UNISON with detune amount.

Performance

Effects Details 

Each part can have a different setting from the Digital DSP,  a collaboration with historic Eventide society. Move on picture for more details:

Algorithms

Dual mono sends with stereo return, or single stereo send with stereo return.
 
Some algorithms Chorus, delay, phaser, bit reduction, vocoder and famous Eventide Reverbs e.g  famous Black Hole, Shimmer and classic Plate /  Room / Hall  Reveberation. 

Moog one memory

One internal Memory 

128 Performance Sets 

Each machine setup including "user space" can be saved including Midi settings, pedals assignment, Led display amount , CV routings and more.

Sound patches

- literaly thousands (?) of patch presets with internal browser with a special database options for quick and easy search.

Our Verdict 

" Not tested yet, but seems pretty impressive and probably the One will soon become a milestone in the synthesizer history. A legacy from the 1982 Memorymoog? Stay tuned "
