Today, Moog Music releases the Dev Hynes episode of its ongoing video series entitled Impressions. In this episode, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Hynes pays a visit to Asheville, North Carolina, home of the Moog Music factory and engages in creative conversation with the Moog One polyphonic analog synthesizer.
Moog One | Impressions with Dev Hynes
Impressions captures the initial moment of connection between artist and instrument, illuminating the space where inspiration informs intuition and experience meets exploration. This piece contains some really beautiful improvisations in an intimate studio setting at Echo Mountain in Asheville.
Today’s release of the Dev Hynes Impressions episode follows the release of Hynes’ recent Blood Orange mixtape, Angel’s Pulse.
A playlist containing past Impressions videos with Peter Dyer (Mariah Carey, St. Vincent, American Idol House Band) and Cory Henry can be found here.

A new Moog One firmware is available for download. In addition to stability improvements and bug fixes, Moog One Firmware v1.1.0 introduces MIDI NRPN and MIDI CC mapping for all analog parameters controlled by the Front Panel, and an intuitive MIDI Learn function for quick and easy MIDI mapping.
