Moog Music has announced the release of a major firmware update for owners of the Moog One, a tri-timbral, polyphonic, analog synthesizer.

Firmware v1.5.0 substantially expands Moog One’s CV Input/Output capabilities. This update also introduces new user-accessible tuning, voice card, and system calibrations, as well as bug fixes and feature improvements.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as our team—along with the essential support and hard work of the Moog One beta test group—worked diligently to ensure this firmware addresses issues previously reported while continuing to enhance the instrument with added features. We are proud to share this update with you and look forward to your feedback on these improvements.

Changes in Moog One v1.5 firmware

  • CV Input/Output implementation greatly expanded
    • 10 new CV/Pedal Input Functions (including Expression).
    • 14 new CV Output Sources.
  • New user-facing calibration routines
    • Voice Card Calibrations ensure optimal tuning and response of all components of the analog voice circuits.
    • System Calibrations ensure proper functionality of the inputs, outputs, potentiometers, and the LHC.
  • Sustain and Sostenuto functionality is now fully implemented.
  • New “Return to Zero All” command.
  • Sequences across all synths now stay in sync when Master Tempo is adjusted.
  • Fix for stuck notes in Unison Mode.

The Moog One Firmware v1.5.0 download includes 25 new presets designed by synthesist and Moog One expert Lisa Bella Donna.

Designed to inspire creative exploration while guiding users through the instrument’s expanded functionality, the patches range from serene pads, FM bells, and multi-timbral sequences to ’80s ballad guitars.
