What the hell is this? I wanted to reveal price but site said I had to join. Now it's telling me that this is inactive? What is this bullshit?
wtfisthis
this drop ended two years ago, you were looking at something very old
what was the final price that this ended up dropping too?
Hey daithimcgibbon!
I emailed both Massdrop and Moog support and will update soon as I get a reply... might not be a bad idea to drop em a mail too! In the mean time, I discovered my MiniNova has a similar adapter head and it worked GREAT so the heads for the psu might be of a standard - its a workaround and I'd rather not having to decide if I want to use the Werkstatt or MiniNova :-( Hopefully a reply from Massdrop/Moog support will come soon!

Well I got a response from MassDrop. Only US adaptors available with this drop...
Got mine and the box was smashed, you could have packed them in another box for gawd sake.
Thanks so much Massdrop - mine arrived in Ireland safe and sound!!! Now speaking of sound - I cant hear mine as unfortunately it came with 2 x U.S. adapters for the PSU. Would you happen to have any UK/Ireland adapters for this kit please? It looks like the PSU was opened and the U.S. Adapters put in - so Im hoping you have a surplus of UK/Ireland heads there as they are useless to anyone else :-) Thank you!

I posted before I read your post. Exact same problem here in Belfast.
Got mine today.
I have no idea what I'm doing....but I played with it for like 3 hours already.
Got mine yesterday! A lot better than expected!
Exciting news group! We’re happy to report that all of the orders have been shipped out and are now on the way to you! Please allow 24-48 hours for tracking to get into the shipper's system and start updating.

Hi, I received my Werkstatt and I have assembled it. It only came with a US power supply though so I can't try it out! Help!
We have some great news everyone. This Moog drop is currently right on schedule, as we have already received the bulk shipment. All that’s left is to break the order down and prepare your individual orders for shipment. We are aiming to get everything out the door within the next two days. Once everything is shipped, tracking confirmation emails will follow.
Expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 10/20 or sooner if something comes up.
So I'm part of this drop and I didn't get any tracking # or any evidence of shipment did anybody get there product yet?
yoonate
look at the comment above yours ^ they are probably going to be shipping around the 16th of october
Thanks again for joining this drop! With your help we were able to make it successful for the community. We've just submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Moog Werkstatt DIY Synth and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will send the bulk shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey where we'll break it up into individual orders and ship them directly to you! The current estimated ship date from our warehouse is 10/16.
Rest assured that we will provide you all with updated information regarding the status of your order throughout the process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 10/13.

Yo, where's the update?
So I'm new to all this. I'm super excited, but now I'm wondering, can I just plug headphones into it and/or my laptop (aux in)?
Has anyone seen a midi input hack for this thing? I would hope any Cv to midi adapter device would work, but it would be nice not to have to buy one.

Laurentide Synthworks' mod Werkstatt der Pfähler mod adds a bunch of functionality, including midi I/O. I'm strongly considering doing this to mine. http://www.laurentidesynthworks.net/werkstatt-der-pfaumlhler.html
So happy for this drop. Can't wait to pop the top and see how deep the rabbit hole can go
i'm so excited
jesus christ when is this drop finally going to end?!? im ready to get my werkstatt....STAT!
It's not really "DIY" if soldering isn't required.

If you want to keep it the way it is out of the box then I guess not. But if you're gonna pop the top and start messing with the internals then it definitely is, and that's what it was made for.

Hi all this drop is really great!
But in the last few hours, the price on Moog's site got from $329.00 to $219.00 (http://www.moogmusic.com/products/werkstatt/werkstatt-01-moogfest-2014-kit), while here on massdrop MSRP is still $329.00
will massdrop's price get lower cause of this ?
thanks

Good question.
I appreciate the inquiry, there is however no change in our pricing. We were made aware of the upcoming change in price in advance and our price for this drop reflects that change. We were allowed to offer a great discount to our community well ahead of the change. That being said, we are still offering an amazing price for the Werkstatt and we look forward to offering more products from Moog in the future.
Nonetheless, I will certainly reach out to the vendor and see what they say.
Thanks for asking!

It's been $199 on Amazon the whole time. So Massdrop is $40 cheaper minus shipping, and you have to wait a month.
this looks so awesome. really want to join. can some one explain the cv expander with this? not sure if i should add that on and cant find an explanation online really....
perd
It allows you to connect the Werkstatt to any other device that uses control voltage (CV) input/output like a sequencer for example. It can be done without the Expander, you'd just have to hack a cable or two though. It basically transforms the patch header so that you can use 1/8" cables instead of breadboard jumpers.
retrocactus
Oh awesome. Thanks for the input.
Can I just plug a set of headphones into this to hear the sounds it makes? Or a USB headphone amp and headphones? Have absolutely no need for it - but would be cool to tinker around with.
Spork13
Great question!
It will work with a pair of headphones and it could work with a DAC, as long as it has a 1/4" input, or you could use and adapter if your DAC doesn't have one. 1/8" to 1/4" or RCA to 1/4", whichever is appropriate for your particular DAC.
I've joined to drop from the UK. :)
Will this drop be available in the UK?!
If I wasn't broke as a joke I'd grab one of these. Looks like it's getting lots of attention though. Is Massdrop planning another drop on these in the near future?
totally on the fence about this, is there a chance this deal on the werkstatt will be out of stock before the 3rd?
On the fence about this one. Cool, but odd. Doesn't quite cut it as a standalone synth or a eurorack module.
zoomorph
With a full synth voice and a 1-octave keyboard with an output it seems pretty standalone to me... and it's definitely compatible most modular synth formats with some fairly simple adapter cables :)
Is it possible to get both the CV expander and the patch cable pack? It seemed to only want to let me buy one or the other, but not both.

Is there any way to add the cable pack? I already joined the drop when you could only pick 1 accessory.

go to my transactions, then click the edit button.
I don't need this, but I'm finding it hard not to join. I've always wanted to get into synthesizers, especially stuff from Moog. If there is a way to have this work with an input signal from a guitar and out to an amp (basically as a guitar effect), I'll be all over this. More research needed...
dang, this is worth it for the Moog LP filter alone ! great Drop.
Too good to be true! <3
This is one of the coolest things I've seen on Massdrop
