Fifty years after introducing the Moog Modular, which was the world’s first voltage controlled synthesizer, Moog Music unveiled the new Emerson System at Moogfest, honoring Keith Emerson, of Emerson, Lake & Palmer fame, and his seminal collaboration with Bob Moog. Development of the custom handcrafted unit took three years with designers using the original documentation as well as circuit board and art files for nearly every original Moog module. To celebrate the introduction of the new Emerson Moog Modular System, Moog Music featured Emerson as a headliner at Moogfest 2014. In the video below, Emerson explains how he came to know Bog Moog and the learning curve he faced when he bought his first Moog synth.
According to Gizmodo, the unit will sell for at least $90,000. Crazy? You decide.
