Moog which has little to do with Moog. It’s no surprise, because this synthesizer was developed by Bill Waytena who was impressed by Robert Moog works.

The talented engineer Bill Waytena was engaged in the development of automobile anti radars. He’s the one who “those in need for speed” should be grateful to - the principles developed and patented by Waytena are used in modern anti radar systems. After attending a music exhibition in 1970, Bill decided to try himself in creating synthesizers. The result of his research was the analog synthesizer Sonic V, produced under the brand Musonic. After the presentation of the synthesizer, Robert Moog merged two companies under a new name Moog/Musonics. A little bit later the name was shortened to Moog Music, and Sonic V was completed and renamed into Sonic Six.

Sonic Six is a portable two-voice analog synthesizer with built-in speakers. Two VCOs produce a triangular, sawtooth and square (with a different duty cycle) waveforms. There are two modulatable LFOs, a voltage controlled low-pass filter (LP VCF), a VCA with an envelope generator and a ring modulator.
