Audiofanzine put the Waldorf Streichfett digital synthesizer to the test. Released earlier this year, the small box is designed to replicate the sound of vintage string machines.

Papercraft Moog modular

Submitted by on December 2, 2009 – 9:19 pm One Comment

Moog made the Moog modulars between the years 1967 and 1981. Each modular system was ultimately a custom job, however there were many stock design models of the Moog modular synthesizer.

When most people think of synthesizers they think of all-in-one instruments that are programmed by pushing buttons, turning knobs, or pushing sliders. However, that is not the way it all began. The first synthesizers were modular, in that they were a group of modules that each performed a separate function.

Moog modulars are some of the most sought after modulars even today. Some modules are fetching ridiculous prices (check out our auction finder if you’re interested in finding some). Well, here’s a way you can have a Moog modular for free!

Here are a few other papercraft synths we’ve covered, build them all and create an entire papercraft synthesizer studio:

Papercraft Korg MS-20
Papercraft Moog Minimoog
Papercraft Arp 2600
Papercraft Roland TR-909

  • The fact that the first synths out there were modular was also the reason they were so gigantic in size and patched like crazy with all the cables running all over the place.
    Today you can have a virtual modular synth like Reaktor by NI. It is not the real thing but it can sound like a monster and I’m not sure if the hassle of having old analog gear is worth it.
