stompboxjon's review"Moog-Tacular"

Arturia Moog Modular V
This is a Digital version of a Analog piece of gear that has been around for ages. If you are into analog sounds and synths and you love vintage gear then the Arturia Moog Modular V will be perfect for you. I really don’t use it that much and never really have I just like to have sounds like this around in case I get in the mood to make something a little different which happens from time to time. I bought this back in maybe 08 but I remember all of the original hardware vintage moog synths and how popular they use to be and I use to mess around with them a long time ago. Music has changed so much that hardly anyone still uses analog synths or even worse you cant even find them because most people just collect them now. So it was great that Arturia came out with a digital version of it. I will say that its not the same though, if any one reading this is old enough to really remember the original moogs from way back in the day then they will know what I mean.


Very easy to use and run, used it in Cubase for a while and its still configured to run in cubase I just don’t use it at all that much more but its good to keep around, I didn’t need a manual for it, in fact I don’t think I have ever opened the manual for Arturia Moog Modular V.


The greatest thing about this software is that it brings those old analog sounds back and in the digital form so you can play them whenever you want right from you laptop. But I can say that its not the same as the real mood. Mainly because even though its made to sound analog like the moog nothing, and I mean nothing in a digital form will sound as good as an original moog will. But if you want the closest thing to it then this is it.

Arturia Moog Modular V
I use a Macbook with Logic 9 and Ableton 7, so far not a single compatibility issue.  Works Great!  I have not looked at the manual, actually, I'm not really sure if came with one, but,  like many of Arturia's instruments, it is a physical model of the actual instrument and there fore most all of the functions are right in front of you.  Most questions can be answered by studying up on the workings of an actual Modular Synth. 
Is the config/setup simple?  Well that depends on how experienced you are on Modular synths.  This thing was a little daunting for me, and still is to be honest, due to the massive amount of options and modules.  If you really want to use this thing properly, study up (good site for some info is  The typical functions are very easy to access, they are all right in front of your face.


The software works great in Logic 9 and Ableton 7 as well as it works great as a standalone.  This software is very stable, it has never crashed on me nor has it ever failed to save or load a preset. 
Well, this is obviously a digital representation of a beautiful Analog Monster.  If you are trying to compare it to the real deal, you will be disappointed.  But, if you weigh that against the fact that the plugin costs thousands less, makes damn good sounds and can go with you anywhere you take your laptop, it gets a 10 out of 10 for me.  I have been using this plugin for about 6 months.  I am still pretty much a novice at it, but spending an hour on this unit once in awhile will yield some great sounds.


What do I like most about this plugin?  It sounds fantastic for what it is.  The options are virtually endless (or at least seem that way to me right now) and it fits right into my laptop.  What don't I like?  Well, its so large it doesn't fit entirely on screen.  Instead of creating a Scroll bar that you could operate via mac's 2 finger scroll option, or even the arrow keys, you have to click on the unit and drag.  Its not a huge problem, but when playing live, the former options would have been much better. 
I believe my studio partner got this is an Arturia synth pack for a few hundred bucks.  Every synth included rules so I say its worth every penny. 
Again, sound quality suffers in comparison to the real deal, but that is to be expected, especially when its a Moog (best synths in the world). 
This is the only Moog Modular plugin I have ever used. 
I would definitely buy this unit again, its a lot of fun despite the amount of time it takes to use.

Arturia Moog Modular V
The Arturia Moog Modular V was easy to install without any problems. I have used it both on a Mac and PC and it has worked fine with each of these. I had no compatibility issues and it overall set up was easy and quick. I don't have a manual so I don't know how helpful it is, but it could be helpful as there are a lot of virtual patches on this.


I currently run the Moog Modular V with a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM. I use it both as a standalone unit and in Logic. I have also used it with a Hewlett Packard lap top with a 3.0 Ghz processor and 2 GB of RAM both standalone and with Cubase SX 2.0. For both of these configurations it was stable. I would sometimes get latency on the PC, but that might have more to do with the midi interface or the computer.


I've been using this software for about four or five years and have found it to be an incredible piece of software. The sounds are not only variety, but extremely realisitic and authentic sounding. A lot of the sounds on this sound like a real Moog and you can get sounds that are beyond the capabilities of a lot of synths out there. The presets are great and range from lead synths, to bass synths, to sound effects and they are all great sounding. Since it is a virtual modular synthesizer, it has endless patches which equals endless synth sounds. Compared to a real modular synth, which will cost you a ton of cash, this is quite cheap and I love using it with my MIDI controller. Overall, this is probably my favorite virtual synthesizer and I love the sound it produces.

Arturia Moog Modular V
I bought a box with version 1, which does not offer the AU format (but nine 120 euros, hiha !!) ... MAS format is apparently DP3 (according to the table at the back of the package), and ... I work with DP4, suddenly, I was scared! but no, arturia of people put all this in a day v2, tlchargeable gratos on their site (21megas mac).
suddenly, the CD, double click on the wise v2 and AC drives, the standalone and AU are yours!
The manual, in French, is very good with the basics of subtractive synthesis, tutorial, basic, etc ... c cooool!


I have a dual 2GHz G5, 2gig RAM, a 828 mk2, ca superbly running standalone, a little harder in a big session with DP4 to 5 (rev, delay ...) 12 compress a plug, 6 ou7 filters :dropoff window
it will run but the display ram a bit, the MMV food quite proc resources, buffers may be to increase, depends on the latency, but hey I'm a bit pushed for even mm ...dropoff window
Standalone when changing patch, see to it that it is well loaded before sending a note: if one makes too fast ca plop in pregnant because all the wiring does not appear instantly.


I use it for one week and barely basic dj, Keske j'mammuse!
presets are not all to remember and you often remove the delay and chorus utiliss abused to discover big wicked sounds ... I spent a good 3 hours just to tweak my ammuser presets, sound is large, the grain is resonnances..aaaaahhh..c'est typ ... filters and it's good!
3 * 3 Osc, LFO to move filters, envelopes, etc., a squenceur analog, infinite modularity, I feel that the only limit of this synth ... that's me!
