Cherry Audio Memorymode, A Software Emulation Of The Moog Memorymoog


Cherry Audio has launched the Memorymode synth plugin, a super-sized plugin version of the mighty Moog Memorymoog polysynth. The Memorymoog was released back in 1982.


Cherry Audio has updated the original design with a variety of features:


  • Memorymode’s LFO, arpeggio, and delay effects all feature one-button tempo sync.
  • Filter and amplitude velocity sensitivity add a new layer of expressiveness.
  • A unique Drift parameter allows continuously-variable adjustment of tuning accuracy, from perfectly in tune, to aged and loose, or anywhere in between.
  • The ‘Modern’ button brings Memorymode into the present with fattened bass and sparkling highs.
  • Comprehensive MPE support is included for expressive controller performances.
  • Memorymode’s effects add the final polish to patches, including a stereo phaser, a stereo ensemble, a flexible tempo-synced echo and a reverb section.
  • The user interface has also been streamlined and simplified, trading the original instrument’s numeric-keypad-and-command-numbers with pop-up menus and an improved value display window.


The three-oscillator voice architecture and ladder filter circuit of the original have been faithfully emulated, but the Memorymode also offers one-button tempo sync on the LFO, arpeggio section, and delay.


In addition, there is a Drift parameter – this can be used to control tuning accuracy- an the Modern button brings the sound up to date with fattened bass and extra sparkle at the top end.


Other new features include MPE support, an expanded Voice Modulation section and the inclusion of more than 600 presets.
