Moog Micromoog
Analog Monophonic Synthesizer

The Moog Micromoog is a one-oscillator (plus sub-oscillator) classic Moog monosynth from the '70s.

It is capable of the classic "beefy" Moog basses and typical Moog synth "whistles", but also of a lot more.

It features a very cool routable S&H circuit that one can even use to simulate an arpeggiator or a sequencer, and many other modulation & routing options that make this little synth very versatile. 

If you're looking for "crazy" synth sounds you will also find them in abundance here.

It was a budget unit, so the overall construction might not be as "strong" as the Minimoog, but it's still fairly strong, and it is very portable.

It features a ribbon controller instead of the more customary pitch wheel, while it does retain the usual Moog modulation wheel, which you can use to control several parameters.

The filter is unmistakably MOOG, and you can also process external sounds through the Micromoog - very useful feature.
