Synth Glossary

A means of generating a control signal based on how much pressure is applied to the keys of a MIDI keyboard. Most instruments that support this do not have independent pressure sensing for all keys, but rather detect the overall pressure by means of a sensing strip running beneath the keys. Aftertouch may be used to control such functions as vibrato depth, filter brightness, loudness and so on....


This is Moog's response to ARP's Pro-Soloist. It was a preset monophonic synthesizer with one VCO. Many where built into Organs (see Cordovox) by the Thomas Organ Company, who also agreed to manufacture and sell 5000 stand-alone units for Moog (at a royalty of $75 apiece). It featured one thin-sounding VCO and VCF. Presets included brass, reeds, strings, bell, and lunar.
