Moog One firmware v1.5 brings a series of CV updates


Moog’s biggest and best just got a little more impressive with the release of firmware v1.5 for the Moog One synth.

The One is Moog’s all-analog supersynthesizer, packing all of its decades of collective craftsmanship into a fabulously well-designed and beautifully assembled package. It features a Fatar keyboard with aftertouch, three synths in one, multiple displays, 73 knobs, 144 knobs, and an XY pad for additional expression and multiple modulation options.

The One – if you can find ‘one’ – will set you back an impressive £5,499, making it something a little more special for those who take their synths seriously.

And as a treat for all those premium buyers, Moog has just updated The One adding a host of features and tweaks to make it even more desirable.

The main focus of the improvements focuses on the CV skills of the keyboard, greatly increasing the number of CV input and output options and providing new ways for CV to affect synth parameters (such as damper gates). envelope, expression, master volume and more).

Also in other CV tweaks it is now possible to control connected synths and such from The One using velocity, modulation output and a whole host of new sustain pedal skills and several more pedal options. All CV input functions are now available for sustain pedal input.

Speaking of that sustain pedal… Sustain and Sostenuto functionality is now fully implemented and The One sends and responds to MIDI CC 64 (for sustain pedal) and MIDI CC 66 (for sostenuto).

Elsewhere, voice card calibrations “ensure optimum tuning and response of all analog voice circuitry components”. And system calibrations “ensure proper operation of inputs, outputs, potentiometers and the LHC”.

Additionally, there is a new “Return to Zero All” command (Shift + RTZ) that resets the sequencers of all three synths to zero, regardless of Panel Focus settings.

And there are the usual bug and crash fixes (removing a crash where all three synths were selected simultaneously in a “More” page).

For those who are lucky enough to own one, take advantage of it! Learn more about the Moog (opens in a new tab) website.
