Moog Mavis: Moog’s new budget-friendly semi-modular analog synthesizer. Mavis is a powerful, low-cost, build-it-yourself semi-modular analog synthesizer that invites creatives to begin their journey in the Moog ecosystem or expand their existing synth setup. Mavis delivers the massive tonal depth that Moog is known for in a feature-packed compact instrument that’s also compatible with any Eurorack system.
The Mavis mixes the familiar with the exotic, featuring Moog’s legendary oscillator and filter circuitry alongside a diode wavefolder – the first analog wavefolder to appear on a Moog instrument. Mavis combines traditional subtractive synthesis with additive wavefolding and exudes a personality. The clever presentation of synthesis modules and utilities allows for intuitive, creative experimentation and musical connections.

As a standalone instrument, Mavis is a straight forward analog synthesizer with patchable modular utilities and the unmistakable Moog sound and quality. Simply take Mavis out of the case and it becomes a 24-point CV controllable module (44hp) ready to be installed in your Eurorack system or alongside Moog’s other semi-modular instruments.
Blending the familiar with the exotic, Mavis features Moog’s legendary oscillator and filter circuitry alongside a diode wavefolder – the first analog wavefolder to appear on a Moog instrument. Combining traditional subtractive synthesis with additive wavefolding, Mavis oozes personality. The clever presentation of synthesis modules and utilities creates deep creative synergy and musical connection.
Mavis is a powerful, fun and inexpensive Moog that makes learning synthesis or expanding an already advanced studio setup approachable for anyone looking for classic analog sounds in a new way.
Legendary Moog sound from a kit
Get closer to the circuitry at the heart of Mavis and get away with a Moog analog synthesizer uniquely “yours”. Soldering is not necessary and can be completed through each level in an afternoon.
Powerful Patch Bay Toolbox
Mavis is a powerhouse in its own right, but it was also designed to amplify any linked Moog semi-modular setup or Eurorack system. At 44HP, the synthesizer offers incredible value with two oscillators, full ADSR, ladder filter, sample and hold, wavefolding, attenuators, mixer, mults, and much more for more complex musical arrangements.
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 set experimental new pitch ratios via the KB scale knob and explore musical intervals 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 movement.
Voltage Controlled Filter
Shape your sound with the -24 dB Moog Low Pass Ladder Filter, which delivers 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 mix between a variable-shape LFO and four-stage envelope generators for interesting and unusual modulation contours.
Wavefolding and Modular Utilities
Mavis includes Moog’s first-ever wavefolding circuit, allowing additive synthesis to coexist with traditional subtractive synthesis, unlocking sounds you’ve never heard from a Moog before. Mavis also features a wide modular utility section complete with attenuators, offsets, mults, and a flexible DC-coupled mixer that provides the tools needed for creative patching and sound design.
Patchable Sample and Hold (S+H) circuit:
Generates a random CV pattern that can be patched to modulate other parameters, including setting Mavis in 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 handy collection of utilities and flexible control voltage routing allow for intricate dialogue between them.
Mavis comes with a protective case for use during studio outages or to take your instrument with you on the go.
