Moog Music Opus 3
The Moog Music Opus 3 is an analog synth that isn't too much like the other synths that Moog has to offer.  Unlike other Moog synths, this one actually emulates acoustic instruments.  While it does have standard synth parameters, the main sections on the Opus 3 are for strings, organ, and brass emulation.  The keyboard of the synth spans about four octaves, which is bigger than most Moogs out there.  The synth has a pitch wheel but not a modulation wheel and is a fully polyphonic synth, which is rare for Moog...


Controlling the Moog Music Opus 3 only took me a little while to get used to as everything can be taken at face value.  If you are familiar with synths, this will be no problem for you and even if you don't have much experience with synths I think you will still be able to figure out how to use this pretty easily.  The synth has sections for strings, brass, and organ, and then has more traditional synth sections like modulation, chorus, articulator, a voltage controlled filter, and an output mixer.  I've never seen the manual for this synth so I can't say if it put together well or not.


The Moog Music Opus 3 is definitely a unique sounding synth and is unlike any other Moog synth that I have used.  While the organ, brass, and strings certainly don't sound like spot on emulations, they contain their own unique tones that serve as a mixture of synth and acoustic emulation.  There aren't any other Moog synths out there like this one, and I wouldn't expect to get traditional Moog sounds out of this as this isn't that type of synth.  If you're looking for the big lead tones and fat bass sounds that Moog is famous for, this synth probably isn't for you.  However, the Opus 3 contains some really cool and interesting sounds that aren't found on any other Moog synthesizer.


The Moog Music Opus 3 isn't the most readily available Moog synth, but can definitely be sought after if you are interested in buying one.  The price for it isn't all that expensive, but I would suggest trying one out first as this isn't your traditional Moog synth.  I wouldn't recommend this as a first Moog for those interested in getting traditional Moog tones, but if you are looking to experiment with some unique synth sounds, definitely check out the Opus 3.

Moog Music Opus 3
keyboard 4 octaves
stereo and mono output

no control except sustain

no memory (it is 1978) and also like that the knobs are still sound.

1 Chorus 2 speed adjustable intensity for organ and string section

polyphony is complete, after the sounds of the brass section passing through a filter will not awaken if you have your fingers on the keyboard and already we réanclanche other notes.


so simple, must know the subtractive, additive module good organ there's only 5 feet is very simple.

we have a machine with filter string section and resolu.

a volume dedicated to panoramic
(The section is smaller than the other so well dosed with general theft)

an add-organ
volume with panoramic

brass module
volume with panoramic

then acts on the string chorus and organ dose with a crossfader between the amount string and organ.

output returned to the chorus and string volume of vca

we have a moog filter 24 db thunder between the brass section and the section with a crossfader between organ and organ and brass ç'est returned to the volume of brass vca

we have a lfo with 2 destinations to choose from: to VCOs or to VCF


sounds good this is for lovers of vintage is the polyphonic string machine and mixing organ.

we even have some leads and bass with organ and brass section filters.

after the specialty of this instrument is the layer with the organ sounds bothered with lfo and auto filter osciliation beautiful, sounds used by Mr. Klaus Schulze including this unit.


good instrument that I will keep, is to find a service not too expensive.

I wish there 'have a hold function to keep my agreements.

I think after this personalized instrument aan metant to the midi in, set the controls to filter and lfo pedals

Moog Music Opus 3
The Opus 3 is a polyphonic analog synth.


The handling is easy and there are at once the best sounds of the machine


Here is a funny moog
nothing to do with a mini monster that shook a possibility of a single note unfortunately.
the album is the key reference for those seeking a sound for organ.
but here I speak of sounds of a huge organ. the one found in churches seems to be a blade dimensions.
The modulation possibilities are honest but c is not his strong point.
c is just the hammod synths.


I possess 2 years and I regret my purchase.
c is not a synth sound design c is a synth that will embellish your composed by the richness of these sheets.
in addition there is a stereo output.
a very good choice for fans of the Hammond but with a grain a little moog typ.
nothing to do with the sounds of new synt plastic cold thin sounding timbre blade
