Moog Music has announced Sirin, a $599 USD limited-edition synthesizer module made in celebration of the Moog House of Electronicus Pop-up experience.

Based on the legendary Moog Taurus sound engine, and presented in the familiar compact form of the Moog Minitaur – Sirin is the first instrument in Moog’s Taurus family of bass synthesizers designed to generate pitches far above middle C, with an extended frequency range that reaches notes up to D8.

Sirin is an intoxicating conjuror of both quintessential lead and menacing Moog bass that integrates seamlessly with modern computer-based production environments via its dedicated Editor Librarian software.

A limited production run of 2500 Sirin will be produced by the employee-owners at the Moog Factory in Asheville, NC – after which no more will be available.

The Moog House of Electronicus is a synth-guided exploration of the power of sound. Located on the grounds of the historic Kim Sing Theater in Los Angeles, the pop-up is open to the public 1/24 – 1/30 (12pm-8pm).

Visitors will have the opportunity to get hands on with Moog synthesizers (including Sirin and the new polyphonic Moog One), as well as explore the deeper dimensions of sonic experience through interactive sculptural synthesis installations, an immersive audio visualization system, and daily synthesizer workshops led by synthesist Bana Haffar.

Sirin features

  • Brushed stainless steel chassis.
  • Two modified Moog Taurus analog oscillators with Hard Sync.
  • Moog Taurus Ladder Filter (20Hz – 20kHz).
  • Two lightning-fast ADSR envelopes.
  • Multi-wave LFO w/ MIDI sync.
  • Glide with selectable type.
  • Up to 128 onboard presets.
  • Extensive hidden functionality accessible via front panel and MIDI.
  • Free Editor / Librarian standalone and plugin software.
  • Handcrafted by Moog’s Employee-owners in Asheville, NC.

Sirin will be available for purchase exclusively at Moog House of Electronicus (US only) and on site at the Moog House Of Electronicus Pop-up (712 N Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA 90012) from January 24th through January 30th, after which the remaining synthesizers will be distributed world-wide.
