Moog launched this new family member recently: next to the Matriarch, Mother-32, Grandmother, Brother from another mother (I guess), there is now the little Mavis brother. It seems to be a DIY project, although the kit is very easy to assemble.
As a stand-alone instrument, Mavis is a straightforward analog synthesizer with patchable modular utilities and the unmistakable Moog sound and quality. Easily remove Mavis from its case and it becomes a 24-point CV controllable module (44hp) ready to be installed into your Eurorack system or alongside Moog’s other semi-modular instruments.
Mixing the familiar with the exotic, Mavis features Moog’s legendary oscillator and filter circuits alongside a diode wavefolder – the first analog wavefolder to appear on a Moog instrument. Combining traditional subtractive synthesis with additive wavefolding and oozing with personality, Mavis’ clever presentation of synthesis modules and utilities ensure deep creative synergy and musical connection.
Mavis is a powerful, fun, and low-cost Moog that makes learning synthesis or expanding an already-advanced studio setup approachable for anyone looking to explore classic analog sound in a new way.
