The Moog Analog Delay is the world’s first delay designed exclusively for the 500 series format. It is a MIDI syncable module that features a 100% analog signal path, front panel MIDI, and an assignable Tap Tempo/CV jack. Included with each unit is a free VST/AU/RTAS editor for easy implementation into any recording, live, or performance situation.

- No VCA in the input, output, or mixer sections for lowered noise, distortion and coloration
- Stereo linking capability and firmware improvements for a wide variety of mono to stereo delay effects and and stereo I/O capability
- Improved and expanded LFO capabilities.
- Lower distortion and higher accuracy BBD chain due to the addition of 5 trimmer pots to dial in the BBD recombining balance and gain stage accuracy.
- Improved high end MUX circuitry in the 6th order anti alias filters and clock removal filters for lower noise and distortion.
- Added analog click track to tap tempo tracking.
- Flexible assignable CV buss.
- Improved signal monitoring chain
Out of the box you get 800ms of the warmest, and most musical delay on the planet. No emulation plug-in can impart depth and life into your mixes like the Analog Delay.
The Analog Delay has been designed with tone, connectivity, and flexibility at the forefront. Moog’s engineering team worked tirelessly to deliver a 500 Series module with an incredibly clean front end that could easily pushed into a warm, natural overdrive for saturated delay trails or beyond for more distorted effects.
Though not on the front panel, the Analog Delay features a 6 Waveshape LFO that allows you to create other time based effects such as tape delay, chorus and extreme modulated sounds. The LFO can be easily accessed via MIDI or the free VST/AU/RTAS Analog Delay plug-in editor.
Also accessible via the editor are advanced features like Tap/CV input routing, Keyboard Control settings, Clock Divisions and a Delay Multiplier for access to illegal times up to 4x the front panel position. The Tap/CV input also can be fed audio from a click track to act as a tap tempo source.
The 500 series Analog Delay combines the sound of the ultimate analog delay with convenient digital control and flexibility to create the perfect recording and live sound tool.
