Learning Modular Synthesis: Moog Mother-32

Quickly learn how to patch, sequence, and expand this popular semi-modular synth.
Bought a Moog Mother-32 semi-modular as your introduction to modular synthesis? Then this course was designed for you. In it, I:
•  show how to connect the Mother-32’s power, audio, and MIDI
•  review the Mother’s major sections
•  lead you through creating a typical patch that will act as a good starting point for your exploration
•  dive into each synthesis section in more detail
•  demonstrate how to record and edit sequences
•  share some live performance and advanced editing tips, including holds, rests, glides, and repeats (ratcheting)
•  mount the Mother-32 into a typical Eurorack case
•  expand the Mother’s capabilities with common modules including a second envelope generator and oscillator, mixers, and splitters
A list of all 18 movies in this 2-hour course – including two free previews – is shown at the bottom of this page; a few images from the course are also shown below. The movie above is the introduction to the course.

Testimonials:

I fell in love with the sound and possibilities of electronic music at a young age. I took synthesis lessons as a teen in the 1970s, learning on a modular Steiner-Parker Synthasystem. A kit-based PAiA modular was my dorm room companion in college. Soon after I graduated, I got a job at Sequential Circuits, where I contributed to several instruments and created Vector Synthesis. I went on to work for Digidesign, Marion Systems (Tom Oberheim), and was the chief engineer at Roland R&D US.

I’ve always enjoyed sharing what I’ve learned. I taught synthesis at UCLA Extension, was the technical editor for Music Technology and Recording magazines, and wrote a column for Keyboard magazine. I continue today, co-writing Patch & Tweak – the new book on modular synthesis – with Kim Bjørn, and writing module reviews for Synth & Software. I also regularly play modular music live under the name Alias Zone, plus jam with others.

I also have a lot of experience creating online training. Before I started Learning Modular, I recorded nearly 50 online courses on creating graphics for television and film for lynda.com (now LinkedIn Learning). I've brought this experience of how to teach a difficult, technical subject in a patient, step-by-step manner to my modular synthesis courses.
