Anaheim, CA, January 21, 2020 – Moog Music Inc. was recognized for Outstanding Technical Achievement during the 35th Annual TEC Awards, held on January 19th at the Anaheim Hilton in California. The Moog One was awarded the top spot in the Musical Instrument Hardware category. Presented by The NAMM Foundation, The NAMM TEC Awards are bestowed annually in celebration of the pro audio community by recognizing the individuals, companies, and technical innovations behind today’s sound recordings, live performances, films, television, video games and other media.
“The Moog One is the culmination of Moog’s decades of experience and the boundless work and creativity by our entire staff,” said Mike Adams, President of Moog Music. “We are grateful not only to our loyal customers around the world, but also to the artists who inspire and motivate us to push our own boundaries. It is the creative friction between art and technology that is at the root of everything we do at Moog.”
Moog One is a programmable, tri-timbral, polyphonic, analog dream-synth designed to inspire imagination, stimulate creativity and unlock portals to vast new realms of sonic potential. The first polyphonic synth from Moog in 35 years, Moog One is the culmination of years of research and has been developed to exceed principal expectations of a polyphonic Moog instrument. Moog One’s iconic angled Front Panel groups single-function knobs together by module — Oscillators, Filters, Envelopes, LFOs, etc. — in a way that is reminiscent of the original Moog modular synthesizers, as well as the legendary Minimoog Model D.
