Moog Mavis Build-It-Yourself Analog Synthesizer Kit w/ 24-Point Patch Bay

Mavis is a build-it-yourself analog synthesizer kit that delivers the huge depth of sound Moog is known for in a compact and feature-packed instrument. Assembly is extremely simple; users of any skill level can quickly assemble their own analog synthesizer with minimal tools and experience. Perfect for first time users and established synthesists alike, Mavis’ semi-modular design and 1-octave keyboard will get you started making sound immediately without the need for additional equipment (except for a speaker or headphones). 
 
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.
 
Built-in keyboard with Glide and KB scaling

As a standalone instrument or as a 44HP Eurorack module, Mavis adds an expressive 1 v/o controller to any setup with the flexibility to dial in experimental new pitch relationships via the KB scale knob and explore musical intervals that go beyond the established standards.

Full Range Analog Oscillator

A Voltage Controllable Oscillator with PWM (Pulse Width Modulation), Waveform mixing, and Mod Source mixing, delivers rich harmonic character and motion.

Voltage Controlled Filter 

Sculpt your sound with the -24-dB Moog Low Pass Ladder Filter, delivering the sonic power behind the distinct sounds of Moog basslines and leads.

Audio Rate LFO and 4-Stage Envelope Generator

Mavis uses crossfaders in its modulation routing instead of switches, allowing you to blend between a variable shape LFO and four stage envelope generators for interesting and unusual modulation contours.

Wavefolding and Modular Utilities  

Mavis features Moog’s first-ever wavefolding circuit, allowing for additive synthesis to sit alongside traditional subtractive synthesis, and features a broad modular utilities section complete with attenuators, offsets, mults, and a flexible DC-coupled mixer.

Patchable Sample and Hold (S+H) circuit:

Generates a random CV pattern that can be patched to modulate other parameters, including setting Mavis into a "random sequencing" mode of performance.

24-Point Patch Bay 

Mavis is eager to play along with other voltage-controlled devices (especially with Moog’s other semi-modular instruments), and its useful collection of utilities and flexible control voltage routing allow for intricate dialogue between them.

Protective Cover

Mavis includes a fitted protective cover for use during studio downtime or taking your instrument on the go.
 
Build one yourself. Get closer to the circuits at the heart of Mavis and come away with a Moog analog synthesizer that is uniquely “yours”. No soldering is required and can be completed by any skill level in an afternoon. 

This compact yet mighty synthesizer with classic Moog circuitry, a built-in keyboard, 24 patch points, and an all-analog sound engine—complete with Moog’s first-ever wavefolding circuit—offers great value to any synthesist. Moog Mavis is available today at authorized Moog dealers worldwide.


Cre8audio NiftyKEYZ 49-Key Keyboard Synthesizer and MIDI Controller, w/ Bult-In Eurorack Case

Power & space - friends with benefits for your modules

More than just a full-sized 49 key keyboard (with aftertouch), NiftyKEYZ has a whole load of space for a pile of whatever eurorack format modules you want to toss into it. All told, NiftyKEYZ has 112hp of available module space and its newly designed power supply provides 1500mA +12v, 1000mA -12v, and 1000mA +5v power. Stuff NiftyKEYZ with modules and you’ll have a franken-synth that’s only limit is the bounds of your imagination (or lack thereof).

Four voices of CV + Gate

Polysynth, monosynth, or how about 4 mono synths? Or wait, wanna mix of both? All is possible with NiftyKEYZ! You can split the keyboard into up to 4 zones and assign any combination of its 4 CV + gates to them. Play chords up high and bass down low, or whatever go for 2 duophonic zones, it’s all doable and then some… Follow your imagination and make it hapen.

Modes, modes, and more modes

So having 4 voices that you can assign willy nilly in your own Frankensynth is super cool, but we thought you wouldn’t want us to stop there! NiftyKEYZ also has a multi-mode arpeggiator that syncs to an external clock as well as NiftyKEYZ’s internal clock.

Speaking of clock, NiftyKEYZ can easily divide incoming clock to your heart’s content, as well as generate its own kicking pulse. Perfect as the center of your system or just being a part of it.

Pretty Mod right? Speaking of Mod, NiftyKEYZ’s modwheel can send constant voltage, allowing you to modulate like a mad person. Additionally, you can toggle the modwheel into LFO mode where now the modwheel will control the depth of clock-synced LFO with 5 fantastic user-selectable shapes.

We’ve only begun to scratch the surface. We haven’t even started to go on about the autochord, sequencing, expression I/O, velocity, and oh yea, there’s aftertouch too!!!!!

Mults and outs, oh my

Nice words about the two fantastic buffered mults that are in the top of NiftyKEYZ go here. We know people really like mults and we should come up with something nice to say that will give them the warm feeling that we care for them because we do. They need to know that we made these especially for them so they can split whatever signal they put into them and send them wherever they want. Hopefully they have active imaginations and come up with wondrous ways to split whatever they come up with out of these mults.

We also shouldn’t forget to talk about the outs and headphone outs. People will love the dedicated headphone outs with their own dedicated control. Plus, the main 2 pairs of 1/4” and 3.5 outs that multiple sources can be summed into and then attenuated will knock their socks off (or at least their shoes).

Did someone say MIDI?

We’re kinda famous for being MIDI fanatics despite making voltage controllable stuff. We don’t know if it’s just the word MIDI, or the fact that practically everything else in our studios have MIDI in, on, or somehow associated with it. Because of this, we found it absolutely necessary for NiftyKEYZ to have deep MIDI implementation.

All of NiftyKEYZ’s I/O can be controlled via external MIDI from either its 5 pin MIDI Din in and/or its USB MIDI class-compliant connection. No drivers are needed! Feel free to connect NiftyKEYZ to your computer’s DAW etc. or any external MIDI devices and go to town.

Additionally, NiftyKEYZ is a full-functioning MIDI controller for your computer and or other external MIDI devices. No need for additional MIDI controllers. Use NiftyKEYZ as the one controller to rule it all…

By the way, did we mention we love MIDI?

Yes, we love MIDI.
