Moog Drum Machine

As far as I know Moog have never made a drum machine. Imagine how cool a huge early 70s Moog drum machine would be - with big knobs, wooden sides and a massive analog sound! So I decided to construct my own Moog drum machine today, using the modular

The 960 sequencer is sending triggers to the trigger gate module. Row A of the trigger gate is making the bass drum, which is 2 VCOs going into the Cynthia low pass gate with some pitch modulation. Row B makes the snare drum, 3 oscillators and some noise, going into the Moog 905 reverb, 904 filter, using the 911 envelope (and the MXR Flanger/Doubler). The high hat is noise / envelope triggered from the main clock, but going into the SSL VC Delay module


  1. Moog had made a drum machine system :)

  3. Pretty sure I could listen to that all day and not get bored... sounds like a vaguely menacing factory robot beating out car parts and wishing it was somewhere else.
