2020 Year Remake
HISTORY The Moog Factory in Ashevill has resumed production of the iconic Moog 16 Channel Vocoder (bode) an instrument which continuously analyzes the timbral characteristics of one sound (Program) and impresses these timbral characteristics upon a second signal (Carrier). Originally introduced in 1978, and famously heard on Giorgio Moroder’s E=MC2, this model has been used to transmute vocals, transform synthesizers, and electronically encode sound for over 40 years. Derived from the original vintage schematic to preserve that classic 1978 sound as close as possible with modern mechanical connectors and a reliable power supply.
-> Previous year, Moog released a DIY vocoder never went in production the Moog Spectravox
