The last ever Emerson Moog Modular system — which is currently being built at Moog headquarters — will be shown off to the public at the Sweetwater Gearfest on 23rd June before it’s sold for $150,000.
The brainchild of Dr Robert Moog and Keith Emerson, the original EMMS was built in the 70s over many years and is widely regarded as the ultimate modular system.
Since then, Moog has been trying to recreate the system and has since built two more as a technical exercise, with the final system expected to be finished this month.
Once finished, the Emerson Moog Modular System will be shown off to the public at this year’s Sweetwater Gearfest between 23rd – 24th June, before it’s then sold for $150,000 later this month.
Checkout this fascinating documentary (below) where Moog Historian, and Bob Moog himself, explores Moog Music’s quest to resurrect the original methods, materials and designs used in the foundational modular synths. Through recreating Keith Emerson’s modular system, Moog Music rediscovers the power, elegance, and enduring legacy of its first instruments.
